We were looking forward to some authentic Vietnamese, but found the menu a bit limited. The food was ok - we had satay, dumplings, crispy chicken and pork vermicelli - but it lacked that authentic Vietnamese flair. Pretty expensive for what you get, not sure I'd go back in a hurry.

If you like Pho, it doesn't get much better than this anywhere. The service could use a little improvement, but that's a fairly minor issue.

The hardest part about coming home from Vietnam was not having real Vietnamese food on hand. Well now we do! Yum yum yum! Reminded us of being back, hard to find pho that is the real deal-this place has it!

The freshest ingredients, the best stock, chicken or beef or for a little extra seafood. Smiling family catering traditional (slightly westernised) healthy food. Just love the garden setting especially in winter with the sun on your back and a hot bowl of Pho the feed the cockles of your heart!

When we arrived, we waited a long time for service. Eventually when she came and took our order, we waited a very long time to receive our dishes. We ordered a Green chicken curry which we could not eat because the dish smelt terrible and the chicken smelt off. The waitress noticed we moved the dish to the side and... More

A simple one for any readers. Shocking service, not terrible food. Delay getting menus and delay taking our order. 1hr 30 before we received out starters. A table of four sat down after us, had their order taken before us, ate two courses and paid before we got our starters. To top it off, when we asked where our food... More

Food was average. However service was the worst we have ever witnessed, seriously. Food took 1 hour 35 mins before starters came and waitress was completely rude, un at-tentative and obnoxious despite our polite manner.Would not recommend!

Not the most authentic Vietnamese I have eaten, but delicious and great value for money. Even the kids loved it! Ask the staff for recommendations
