First time visitors and very happy with the quality of the food. Had chicken satay, wonton, prawn tempura, chicken summer rolls, crispy pancake with prawns, spiced meatballs. All cooked beautifully from a great chef. Service was excellent and friendly. Recommended.

“Vietnamese food in Croydon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We haven't eaten Vietnamese food before, but plenty of Thai, Malaysian so we expected this to be similar. This restaurant had some very good points, but some that let it down. On the plus side the waitress service was superb, quick, chatty, very pleasant. Also the background music was great, loud enough to hear but low enough to allow conversation, and very varied. The restaurant is well decorated, clean and the BYO wine a great bonus, as you get to drink EXACTLY what you want. On the negative side the restaurant faces onto a street which doesnt have great views. The food was ok, plenty of it, well cooked and it was value for money. However we only thought that this was rated as 7/266 in Croydon as there is little competition at the 'top' end of the market. The dessert was nothing special. We would probably eat here again.

“Best restaurant in Croydon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I've eaten at this restaurant quite a few times since moving to Croydon. The service is always first class and the food top notch. The menu is full of Vietnamese taste sensations, I love all of the menu but the prawn crepe has got to be a favourite. I have taken some vegan friends here and there was plenty of options for them too. The food is always very fresh and not too hard on your wallet. I recently sampled the dessert menu and the lemongrass/ginger tart was brilliant! Alcohol is BYO and a small fee for corkage is charged. The family that runs the restaurant is from Ho Chi Minh, so you can be assured they know their Vietnamese cuisine. They are open Tuesdays to Sundays for dinner from 6pm to 10pm.

“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Six of us dined here today. The restaurant is small and clean. Don't be put off by the exterior. The food is prepared freshly by the owner and chef. The menu is interesting and the food tasty. Our waitress was a little late so we had to wit to order the food but it was worth it and she was very helpful and pleasant. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

“Lovely...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

Just a lovely little restaurant an bring your own bottle, so you can keep it a nice cheap night!

Food was lovely and un expectantly amazing! Maybe slightly too salty on the starter for me, but nothing to complain about.

Waitress was really lovely and did everything and anything for you!

I recommend all to go and try! It is a tiny restaurant so definitely book before you go to reserve a table :)
