Supposed Vietnamese cuisine - but despite it not being the most authentic Viet experience, it gets the work done for a quick meal. Chicken chop with rice is rather nice, beef pho - not the best, tacky and greasy spring rolls. It is however, conveniently located in Gaya Street.

Vietnam would surely disown this place as the food is quite terrible. Spicy Chicken and Rice was mostly chicken bones no meat with large rice. The spring rolls were appalling with contents not really what I call spring roll at all and full of stale cooking oil. If local KK people don't mind this place... then they don't know about... More

Went here for dinner one night and got a range of food. Expected much better. They had run out of rice so had to wait 20 mins for the rice dishes which was disappointing. Overall an unmemorable meal.

Considering the relatively close proximity of Vietnam, it is a surprise that talent with this cuisine has not permeated this region - and certainly not this restaurant. The coffee is the only thing that hits the mark. The spicy chicken rice was not spicy, not Vietnamese and not very good. The beef noodle soup lacked the accompaniments one would expect... More

We love Vietnamese food, and I was sad that I didn't get to try this restaurant the first time in KK, so this time I made sure to visit this restaurant. KK is a place where the food seems so vibrant, with mixtures of spice and flavor. . this restaurant was rather bland, we could hardly detect any of the... More

Great food at reasonable price. Came here for lunch with my family. Enjoyed the Vietnamese food. Nice wallpaper and seating. Not crowded.The pho with mint leaves is good. Something like the Chinese Keow Teow soup.

Ordered Spicy Chicken Rice and Iced Milo, and it took them half and hour to bring me my drink. Food took almost an hour to arrive. The place wasn't packed, given it was a public holiday. But still! That doesn't give you guys an excuse to be slow. Fairly disappointed

This place comes highly recommended by a friend. Had wanted the beef stew but they have ran out and settled for spicy crispy chicken rice instead. Which turned out to be a good choice coz the chicken is so crispy and juicy! Awesome dinner accompanied by iced Vietnamese coffee. Good location in the middle of Gaya Street. Service is fast...

We went here only for the Vietnamese coffee which was great and as good as vietnam. We would have eaten here but no vegetarian options available.
