Fodor's Review

Covered with more knick-knacks than the space comfortably allows, the bar at the city's only Vietnamese restaurant looks like someone bought out a souvenir shop. The barstools are irrelevant, because there's no place to set your drink anyway. But that's fine, because you can just grab a table or relax on a sofa in the dining area and enjoy one of the signature cocktails while you peruse the menu of Vietnamese classics. Perennial favorites include the crispy smoked eggplant

dumplings, prawns with rice pasta, chicken curry, and five-spice spareribs. Bowing to local custom, there's little heat in any of the dishes, even if you ask for extra chilies, but ask for a bowl of Sriracha hot sauce to be brought to your table.

Nice but naughty

The food was good but not what I would have called Vietnamese. It was also a little on the small portion side for the price. The ambience, the location and the venue was good. Nice touches here and there. More like chinese fusion though.

Good food not really asian style

Simple restaurant, good and tasty food, good ambience and a bit pricey in relative terms to the city offer. However it seems that asian is trendy now.
