The seafood was fresh and generously portioned. We went on Tuesday so not too busy, but I would recommend booking at the weekend. Maria the waitress was very friendly and helped recommend good dishes. We will definately come again to support a good local restaurant.....we had: Summer rolls Vegetable trigon (think Vietnamese samosas) Bun Cari soup noodles with prawns Crispy sea bream with tamarind Sesame rice There was no trace of our food by the time we were done - it was too good to leave! You can bring your own wine or beer so all in all this is a great night out.More

Food was amazing everything tasted delicious and the portions were very generous. We came on a Wednesday and asked for recommendations and the waitress whos name is Maria suggested amongst the most popular dishes;she recommended a few including the fish cake and the very delicious...chicken satay. This is by far the best Vietnamese restaurant I have ever been compliments to the chef we will definitely come back.More

We were happy to see this reopen post covid as we love so close. The food was fantastic, and for BYOB you cannot complain with price. Great portions and authentic tasty Vietnamese. The service was a bit slow and grumpy though. The atmosphere was lacking...a bit. We’ll definitely be back for the food though.More

The staff were simply amazing and polite and Maria W who works there was really funny abet that I wouldn’t be completely full with the pancake and oh boy I was so full and so pleased with the food the chef really outdone himself. It was a very nice evening and we enjoyed every bit of the food as well as the service. Thank youMore

I ordered the summer rolls and the peanut curry to say that it was delicious was an absolute understatement. Maria who was the waitress looking after us was simply amazing I loved her energy and when.i told her how much I loved the sweet chilly...sauce she literally asked the chef to.come say Hello to us and the chef gave is some nice freebie chili sauce to.take away. The restaurant is simply amazing very nice ambienceMore

I loved the food we came on a big family group and enjoyed every bit of it the food is simply delicious I ordered the peanut curry and Maria very expertly helped me choose and my mother in law choose meals. But what made the...restaurant be even nicer was the staff friendliness Maria who works there took a few pictures for us and made us say her “name” instead of the “cheese” we had so much laugh with that girl we couldn’t help but Clap with her funny comments and performance. The other lady (I’m sorry I didn’t get her name) was also nice and friendly I really recommend this restaurant and I’ll definitely come back very soonMore
