Always looked forward to a bowl of Vietnamese noodles in a Vietnamese environment. Wished their servers were dressed in Vietnamese outfits like their lady boss. She is very pleasant, polite and always ensure your food is in order and provide additional sauces or toppings. I...loved their garlic bread which is crunchy and tasty. For a pack at RM5.00 is an ideal take-away snack. Parking space ample on weekends. Will definitely return if I miss the soupy noodles and friendly lady bossMore

This is probably the best Vietnamese restaurant I have tasted in Malaysia. Our family of 4 decided to go there for lunch and we ordered 2 varieties of bahn mi (Saigon original special & the other with egg), pho ga (chicken noodle soup), bun cha...(meat with rice noodles & vegetables) and a set of fried spring rolls. To top it all we had the ice coffee with milk & avocado smoothie. The bahn mi was absolutely delicious especially the Saigon special. The egg version was not as good though. Overall for an authentic Vietnamese food experience, this is really a good place to eat.More

Need to transport this cafe to the UK. Loved the banh mi cart not just for display but in use for preparation of said banh mi at a price 11.5rm, around £2.20. Beef pho at £2.80 ridiculous pricing but great for us. There was a...small menu of classic dishes. Spotlessly clean and awarded an A for food and hygiene. We saw tourists and locals come in. We had the spring rolls and summer rolls to share. Spring rolls were tasty and summer rolls fresh and delicate. Mains soon followed with beef stew noodle been my choice and a incredible broth to accompany it. Classic beef pho was also chosen and 5 adults and 2 children ate for less then £40. The banh mi 2 were ordered too try and the baguette was as authentic as it could.light and crispy denoting the Vietnamese take on evolving the baguette. The classic with pate and pork roll with picked carrot and daikon along with coriander was just so tasty taking one in between the beef carrot noodles. Well worth trying if your luck to visit Malacca!More

Staff were very welcoming and the flavours of the food were superb! We had Vietnamese spring rolls, fried spring rolls, a beef dish with rice and a dumpling type dish stuffed with chicken and mushrooms and served with vietnamese salad. All so delicious; we had...to take some away with us as couldn't eat it all. Prices for what we ate ranged from MYR10 to MYR13 per dish. The only negative was that two small cans of beer were MYR11.80 each.More

Vietnam coffee was authentic enough. Special dish from Tue to Thu only, worth trying. Attentive staff and ample parking space nearby. Surely will return for another visit.

This little restaurant is owned by a friendly Vietnamese lady. The food is good and delicious. The noodle soup is very tasty and the spring roll is equally good.

My favorite is beef noodle. The popiah and chi tau kuih also not bad. Price slightly on high side but quality great. Will surely come back 4 more soon.

Been here a few times and it just brings me back to Vietnam again. The place is clean and comfortable. The banh mi is pretty good. Also try the spring rolls (goi coun) and dried vermicelli (bun thit noung).
