“Tasty food but small portions. Service inconsistent.”

Reviewed 27 June 2018 via mobile


Went here with a few friends for dinner on a midweek day. The place was busy however not all tables were fully occupied. Tasty food, reasonable prices, inconsistent service. See my pictures.

The food: the cuisine is Vietnamese/asian, with a lot of dishes to choose from. The menu was in English. A lot of variety, including options for vegans and vegetarians. We ordered several dishes, including starters, mains and a dessert. The food tasted good and authentic, with plenty of fresh herbs and other fresh ingredients. The quality was good.

The venue: nice setup, however not suitable for all night dining since the seats are not comfortable (mixed types of chairs/benches/stools). It has a nice atmosphere. Table setup is “asian streetfood” style.

The price: reasonable for this type of streetfood-style of dining. Portions are small but this is reflected in its price. You will need 2-3 dishes for a proper meal. Drinks are a bit overpriced: most of the glass was filled with ice.

The service: this is very inconsistent. Don’t expect high end service. The waiters are friendly but it may take a while before they are coming to your table. When getting their attention, we were sometimes ignored. They don’t come to your table if you don’t ask for it (so no proactive service). Most were friendly though, some speak English only.
Dishes tends to come quick and will be served directly after preparation, which is annoying if you would like to eat “simultaneously” with your dining partners (one of my friends had to wait 10 minutes before her Pho was being served, while the rest of our table already had their meals).

This has the feel of an urban or street food venue, nicely decorated and they serve very good food. The service was a bit erratic as they were quite busy but nevertheless friendly.
My duck chilli curry soup meal was excellent. Overall a very good experience

No surprise, little vietnamese tapas for a reasonable price, but not cheap.
The fresh homemade limejuice was very refreshing though a bit overpriced, the duck Vit Xao Lan nicely spiced but just a little duck meat, the fried chickenwings were well done Canh Ga Chien Sa ut and the Egg noodles were just nice. Altogether an affordable late lunch/early dinner after 17h for just 25 euros with two drinks in the sun on a cosy nicely coloured terrace. Some more chairs would attract even more customers, inside became full soon. A bit too much confused personnel, but it got busy....

It was a nice place to eat. However it was a bit pricey, and you needed to order quite a bit to be full.
Food was overall good.
