Yummy Vietnamese food - the Fresh Spring Rolls are delicious with fried shallots giving them a slight crispy element. Fantastic vegetarian options, I love the Crisp Spring Roll on Vermicelli dish. Staff are lovely, the restaurant is peaceful, we enjoy coming here.

We chose this restaurant because it was in the neighbourhood and we could walk to it. The 3 ladies running the place were doing a great job as it was reasonably busy on the night of our visit. We all ordered the fresh spring rolls...More
