“A taste of Saigon”

Reviewed 2 April 2018

On a rainy night we searched for a restaurant for the family somewhere close to our hotel. My wife said she had seen a Chinese restaurant up the street from the hotel. While Chinese cuisine is not a favorite, I agreed in the interest of location. Much to my great surprise the food was not Chinese, but "asiatic inspired" per the menu. The inspiration though comes from Vietnam and the variety of spices, which enhance the flavors, made the dinner a very satisfying experience. This is a family run business with the mother, father and two children serving up excellent food

My boyfriend and I ate here for dinner while we stayed in Carcassonne as it was walking distance from where we stayed and it was the only place that was still open around 9:30PM. The restaurant is small and family-run with excellent service - the owner tries to get to know all of his patrons. The food is more of a Chinese/Vietnamese fusion so not exactly authentic, however it's decent enough and certainly edible. I ordered the chicken curry - the sauce was too thin (had more of a water texture to it) and tasted more like curry powder instead of sauce. That said, if you're really in the mood for Asian food, this is probably going to be the best you'll find.

Linh Chi is a small (20 or so covers) family run restaurant slightly off the beaten track but well worth finding if you like that type of food. As it is small, booking is highly recommended as is having an understanding of French as the waiting staff may not have much English. Also, being small with limited kitchen facilities, service can be somewhat less than brisk so don't go if you are in a hurry. However the staff are extremely polite and friendly.

The food is delicious, the Nem starters are to kill for served with dipping sauce, lettuce and mint. For main I can highly recommend the Thai Green Curry, which isn't as "spicy" as the owner insisted. In spice terms it's more than tasty, but less than "hot hot" - just right in fact! The house Rose is typical of the region and also delicious. All in all both food and wine prices are quite reasonable.

Highly recommended and we'll probably be back there next time we visit,

Had dinner here with the family - being Australian we are spoilt with quality Vietnamese restaurants. The food here was very good quality, served efficiently and with a beaming smile and hospitable manner. Highly recommend it.

Ate here at end of tourist season and nearly didn't go in , it looked so dead. The proprietor confirmed it was open and put a couple of lights on but really it needed far more to create an ambiance when essentially empty. Just a few tea lights would have helped create a convivial atmosphere. The food , cooked by his wife, was pleasant enough but the whole evening could have been so much more with just a little extra effort.
