The menu is very diverse with soups, noodles, dishes, veggie or not. When I want a taste of asia, this is where I go. Busy during weekends!

The restaurant was packed when we arrived, but we got one of the last tables. There seemed to be one lady and her husband serving the whole restaurant. Our food was nice and freshly cooked. There was a good choice of vegetarian dishes, which is always nice. The house wine was very drinkable and inexpensive. The major let down was the service. It was very slow and not particular friendly. There was a bit of a language barrier as my french is not perfect, but we had to wait wait while to get a menu, ages to order, quite a while for our food and a fair time for the bill and to pay.

Overall, reasonably priced and decent food, but not outstanding and the service really let them down.

Super long menu (everything fresh ?) from veggie to ribs. It's easy to eat on a low budget, which I usually do with a soup, springs rolls and dim sum. House wine is good and cheap. Family staff will always help. Try to make a reservation...

It's not a pretentious place, but a down-to-earth Vietnamese restaurant serving real food. Some dishes are better than others, but when we stick with the staples, we generally have a great value meal with authentic flavours.

After hearing a lot of positive from friends and reading the nice reviews, we decided to go there last saturday (02/05/2015) with my girlfriend. The disappointment was large.

We took the "table de riz à la vietnamienne", which is a mix of Vietnamese dishes from their menu, so we could experience a bit of each dish.

It started with a soup, basically veggies from cans (like mushrooms, ananas, .. nothing fresh) in a simple bouillon with a pinch of spices, tasteless if it wasn't a bit spicy. Had the impression while eating it that it was not at all homemade; it was the worst soup I had in years.

The next dishes were okay-ish, the fish was overcooked, the chicken was tasteless and boiled, the beef was the only average thing in the lot (as well as the veggies, except the mushrooms - still coming from a can ...).

The service was fine, not much friendly, but not awful either.

Bref, we are still amazed when reading the other people reviews ... feels like we didn't go to the same restaurant !

So if you read this, avoid the "table de riz à la vietnamienne", and stick to the thing people with positive reviews recommended, it might be that we were the only one who ever tried that :-)
