We tried several Vietnamese places in Brussels - there´s quite a number in the Bourse area. However, Thien Long stands out as the best. Although atmosphere and setting might not be the nicest nor is it a posh place, the food is absolutely amazing. It looks like a restaurant in Vietnam and they offer a wide range of traditional Vietnamese... More

I was traveling with my vegetarian daughter, so it was great we were so close to a great collection of asian restaurants. Highly recommend Thien Long and definitely get the grilled clams!

Quán ăn sạch, gọn gàng, ấm cúng. Thức ăn ngon. Giá cả hợp lí. Phục vụ rất ân cần. I visited this restaurant one rainy night, when I was lost in Brussels. I was very happy when I saw some Vietnamese cuisine. I had Bún Bò Huế - spicy noodle soup with beef. It was delicious and made me warm.... More

NOTE: They close at 10p instead of 10:30p as listed on this page. Arrived at 9:30p and was quickly seated. Keep in mind that their entrance is really weird and small. There is a front door that leads to small dark hallway with another door labeled entrance, THAT door is the entrance into the restaurant. Small place but fast service.... More

We hesitated before entering the restaurant, as the exterior is not very inviting. Once inside, it was cosier than expected. The food is really nice. We are the crab and asparagus soup, the chicken cocos and the Vietnamese vermicelli with scrimps. Highly recommended.

We go here regularly for are Vietnamese fix. We just moved to Belgium from Hawaii where we ate a lot of pho, good pho which is hard to find in Europe. Luckily this quaint little joint exists. The pho is delicious, the broth is what makes it like any good pho. The baked clams are a must! I would recommend... More
