“Fabulous family run Vietnamese restaurant”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Never visit Ipoh without a meal here. Always get a very special welcome when we arrive. Happy and friendly staff who have worked there since I started going 5 years ago. Find the meals are healthier as there are a lot move salad type dishes. My favorite is the Chicken Chop Mong. Prices reasonable.

“Above Average Prices, Excellent Service, Average Food”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

I was in search for some good Pho in Ipoh which brought me to this restaurant.

The service was excellent, everybody was smiling, very happy to help, and very knowledgeable about the menu.

I ordered their signature pho bowl but I could not finish the whole thing because it was quite large. I wish they had the option of a large and small portion so that people with small appetites would not waste anything.

My family of 3 adults with 1 salad appetizer, 4 drinks and 3 entrees came up to RM$90 which I though was rather costly for the whole dining experience.

“Overpriced & low quality”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

We had two soups and a spring roll for 30 ringgits, which was too much for soup that was similar to what can be found in the noodles area of a grocery store. There are too many more better and cheaper places on the same road.

“Great service”
Reviewed 13 December 2013 via mobile

I recently went to Vnam restaurant with my husband. We shared the rice paper spring rolls, beef noodles (house specialty) and apple juice with sour plum (absolutely refreshing). The food was pretty good, and the service was outstanding. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They would regularly drop by to check if food was okay. The staff are quite well versed with the menu and are able to recommend and give good suggestions on what to order. They food may not taste as authentic as one what would get in Vietnam, but this is a pleasant change from the usual food in Ipoh.

“Not bad for Vietnamese Food in Ipoh”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

3.5 stars - above average. I'm happy that we have Vnam here in Ipoh to give us a taste of Vietnamese food. The food here is decent, although of course not as good as what I've had in Vietnam or the good Vietnamese restaurants in Australia.

Still when we have a craving for Vietnamese fare in Ipoh, this is the place to go to.
