Inside busy KL you can find this calm hidden gem. Service is well, food is fresh and tastes good. Prices are expensive for KL, however cheap for Europeans. For 3 persons we paid 250 RM, 2 glasses of wine included. I recommend this place.

We had come here with high hopes as the reviews seemed good and we had a craving for vietnamese. Unfortunately, the food in general lacked a lot of flavour. We ordered the fresh spring rolls which were nice but didn't taste that fresh. Then we...More
