Went for dinner today after long day walking around Colchester zoo. We had 3 seafood mix which was absolutely divine and large portion of mango salad and the tofu pop which was absolutely delicious and the best crispy tofu I have ever eaten for starter. We then had one grilled lamb bún and one pork spring rolls bún; and a bánh Xéo for main which was very nice.

We loved everything about this place. We had never eaten Vietnamese food before, so this was the best we had ever tasted! Unsurprisingly it is similar to Thai cuisine, we had what was recommended by our waitress and we were not disappointed, it was all really lovely. The atmosphere is great, it is decked out how one might imagine a restaurant in a Vietnamese jungle clearing, all wood and old pallets, with lots of vegetation. The service is wonderful as well. A lot of the customers who were dining there were clearly from Southeast Asia, which has to be a real recommendation. Overall a well deserved five stars!

We’ve been to lots of the Vietnamese places in London and down the kings Land road so having moved back to the area we were really looking forward to trying and are extremely pleased to have found this place.

Absolutely fantastic, the summer rolls and the salt and chilli squid starters were lovely and very tasty.

It was the pho ga (chicken) that stole the show though! Absolutely delicious. Myself and my wife Steph are big pho fans and this was up there with the best I’ve had!

Really nice restaurant on the water front, completely full with a really nice atmosphere and decor. The waitresses were on point and extremely friendly.
The manager was lovely

Really happy to have this in the town and will be back for lunch and dinners!

Good work

Popped in for lunch today. Nice choice of food which was served quickly by friendly and attentive staff. Can see why this place is popular with students from the nearby university as it's reasonably priced and tasty. Still prefer the North Hill Noodle Bar in a taste off, having been to both recently but this was certainly a nice treat.
