Here for an occasion we enjoyed their fares and the overall experience.The prawn Red Riot dish was super, though I found the Bun Bao to be unreasonably priced high. Definitely a good option if you want to move out of the usual Oriental = Chinese options, but I would reserve it for special occasions only.

It's probably because that we had high expectations that this visit turned out to be disappointing. Service lacked warmth. Almost everything we ordered tasted the same. - Salt and pepper fry, Ben Thanh chicken, Red River riot fish, Jungle fish curry. Smoky noodles was the saving grace. We hope it would be better the next time around.

I've seen this grow from a small inconspicuous restaurant in a corner to one with lots of seating on two floors. Situated on the busiest grub hub of Indiranagar. The warm decor and plants greet you and there is ample seating available. However, watch out for the tables with an uncomfortable bench on one side and a comfortable well-padded on... More

If you love Vietnamese food, then this is the place and if you dont know what it is like, then you must visit. . Welcoming interiors and wait staff. I knew what I wanted even before the menu was given. Wasnt a tough decision. We ordered for a Green Papaya salad, Pho for my colleague and Bun Bo for myself.... More

We visited this place on Valentines day. Though it was crowded, the host ensured to get us a place on the first floor. The location is very beautiful for a romantic dine out. The food is equally delicious both in veg and non veg. In veg do try the golden fried spring rolls and in Non veg the Pho is... More

This place is lovely. The decor is muted and pretty. Lots of greenery. Cool and summery. The beef pho is in a massive portion but I found the broth to be lacking in complexity and richness. It was still really good though. The beef lettuce cups were delicious and the summer rolls were perfect. Service was friendly and polite.

Decent ambience but the food was not good. I tried starters and Buen Mi which was below average.Try other Vietnamese restaurant if you want to try the cuisine.

The restaurant was very crowded when we arrived and it took half an hour for us to get a table of 6 people. But the wait was worth it. We tried their Banh Cuon, Viet spare ribs and viet wings as appetizers. Then we tried their chicken and prawn pho, smoky noodles and spicy prawn fried rice. All of them... More
