-This is one of the best meals in a Singapore restaurant and definitely the Vietnamese food in Singapore.
-Each dish was excellent.
- Appetizer (Imperial Rolls), Main course (Duck curry + prawns steamed in whole coconut) + Dessert (Caramelized bananas with coconut gelato + cassava cakes) + Vietnamese coffee.
I would recommend each one of the dishes.
-Service is really quick and efficient.
- The prices are on the higher end- entrees are around $22-28.
- It is located at the Arts House, which is actually Singapore's old Parliament House. It was built in 1872. So in addition to the oh-my-god food, you can have a peek into Singapore's history and the local arts and literary scene.
-After dinner, you can take a lovely walk beside the Singapore river.

This restaurant is located at the Old parliament house. It was just besides the Victoria theatre which is undergoing renovation now, so you can only see construction in progress if you sit outside to dine.

We went there to have our lunch in a group. That was around 2pm plus and it was over lunch time. The place was quiet, with a few tables occupied. The food was okay but not fantastic. Especially the noodle soup, we all felt that it was not served hot, the soup had already cooled down when arriving at our table. But what I like is their soft shell crabs, it was yummy. The paper roll with prawns was okay as personally I do not like the taste of raw bean sprout. But it was okay. The service of the waitresses was good. Patient, and quite efficient.

Price wise, it was not cheap. You can expect a bowl of noodle soup costs ard 20 over dollars. The food we ordered including deep fried soft shell crabs, mango salad, 6 bowls of noodle soup, paper rolls with prawns, paper roll with soft shell crabs and a few drinks cost us about 300 over dollars and each of us paid $46 for one share. One can order their set lunch which costs ard 30plus dollars.

But as I said, if you can sit down at a quiet and nice environment to enjoy your food with good service, isn't it worth to pay a little bit more.

We decided to sit at an outside table as there was a nice breeze for a change. There was some building work going on opposite but it wasn't loud enough to put us off our food. Everything was fresh and delicious, especially the prawn spring rolls, much better in fact than we had in Vietnam! However the standout was the Pho Bho. i have to say i baulked at the SGD 21 being charged until I saw the bowl it came in which was huge and more than enough for two or more people. It was absolutely delicious, perfectly seasoned with a beautifully warm beefy flavour. We will return.

This is a very well appointed restaurant and a great location( just behind the Parliament House ) in a lovely colonial building. The food here seemed to take on a modern flavour rather than the tried and tested Vietnamese fare. This worked for the starter which was an open plate of rice paper, salad leaves and a beef roll which the guest is required to roll up and dip in the sauce as well as lovely green mango and pomelo salad topped with prawns which was closer to Thai food. The clear mushroom soup had hints of a Tom yum soup. What did not work so well was the main which was grilled fish and chicken.
