“Terrific ambiance, comfortable, decent Vietnamese food”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

This place will get more and more busy once the nearby construction is completed (which I didn't hear today) and the National Art Gallery is completed. Until then, even better! This is located in a historic building, and highly recommend sitting outside - nice shade. Oh, the food! Rather high-end Vietnamese fare which is well done. if you've lived in Asia, you've had this before - but it is very good, just nothing spectacular. I wasn't that adventurous - beef salad and thai chicken, so perhaps that's a bit unfair. My colleagues had the set menu which had a nice variety. Service was a bit slow which can try one's patience during a business lunch, but otherwise, they're ok. A nice place, not so easy to find with the construction going on at the moment - but definitely worth the trip.

“Perfect choice for lunch when visiting the Asia Civilizations Museum”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We were given lots of recommendations by our friends for a good lunch spot when visiting the Asia Civilizations Museum. But Viet Lang caught my eye as I wanted to explore the Arts House and figured Vietnamese cuisine is always good on a hot and humid day (and what day isn't hot and humid in Singapore). The space is quite lovely, with an outdoor patio if you prefer open air. I had the cold rice noodles and a glass of wine while my friend had the pho and a Singapore Sling. We were both pleased. After lunch, we wandered over to the small museum store which had a few quite nice items and a very friendly clerk. There's also a nice looking cafe in the building, which we were tempted to try.All in all, a nice visit and within our budget.

“Good food and lovely location”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Went here with a large group and had a set menu. Delicious food and beautiful setting. On the pricey side but worth it for a nice meal. Staff was very accommodating.

“A friendly, quiet place with good food.”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We have visited this restaurant a few times through the years, and it has been very consistent as to ambiance, service and food.
We have been sticking to the set lunch, which offers a pleasant, well cooked meal which I believe is genuinely Vietnamese. The room is pleasantly cool and the service is quick and friendly, leaving you the time you need to enjoy your meal and your company. The house wine is good.
We find the price reasonable considering the whole "package".

“Food that comforts your soul”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

-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.
