The food here is surprisingly good. I had Lemongrass Boneless Duck; duck was flavorful and juicy, vegetables crisp and tasty, the sauce well designed. My wife had Pad Thai, also excellent. I had a Fog Cutter cocktail which was a treat. Only disappointment was the Spring Rolls, which lacked the fresh pop of good ones. Prices fair, service OK.

Always dependable, always great. Light sauces, fresh ingredients, plenty of choice, reasonable price. What more can you ask for! This is a really competitive area, and we literally have never been disappointed.

We found this restaurant from a recommended list of local places to eat that was provided by the Longwood Inn where we were staying. Booking was not required and service was quick, friendly and efficient. The food was excellent - subtly flavoured, cooked to order with fresh ingredients and represented good value for money. Caters for all types of diner... More

It might have been my mood, but I had a list of 10 mouth watering menu items I wanted to try. I actually did not know about how Banh Hoi is served, so I was pleasantly surprised when a plate with enough food for TWO arrived (I chose the beef) along with a special rice wrapper contraption in which I...

Food was quite all right. I had sea food madness. Very good shrimps, calamari I enjoyed it. My friends both had soups. Apparently they come here often and eat the very same every time. Curry soup and like Ramon with pine apple, tomatoes etc. Sunday evening the restaurant was quite full.

The spring rolls were delicious! I asked for a pad thai without peanuts, with chicken and vegetables. All my requests were perfectly fulfilled! It is the kind of meal that makes you satisfied without feeling your stomach heavy.

We are big fans of this place. We go pretty much whenever we can all agree on pho. We go to Super 88 when we can't agree.

Its large menu is a combination of Vietnamese and Thai offerings. The times we (wife and I) have been there, service has been very attentive and they explain the dishes very well for first time comers. They offer quite a number of dishes for people that is gluten sensitive and it is cooked separately from the other meals to avoid... More
