Now this is one place that we’ve heard very mixed results about. Some people we recommended it to go there and love it, and some are disappointed. Some love the interior, and some hate it. We’ve never heard such varied opinions. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Maybe we just sat at the right seat, ordered the right food, and went there at a good time. Who knows? But we did go there three times, and each time was better than the time before. The seating by the window is at the perfect height, and the table is made of heavy stone which made for a very comfy meal. The lighting was quite pleasant as well, though we did hear someone saying that they thought it was annoying. To each their own. We thought that the place looked quite good.

The Vietnamese Spring Rolls with Vermicelli and Lettuce were superb, as was the Sour and Spicy Seafood Soup, which knocked our socks off with its heat. The Deep Fried Breaded Shrimp were as expected, if a bit too small, and the Stir Fried Water Spinach was as it comes in local restaurants, if a bit larger than one might have thought. The drinks, both frozen and not, really stole the show. We had the passion fruit juice that was fantastic, and we learned that it took four passion fruits to make one drink. We also had the jack fruit smoothie, which was outstanding. To top everything off, we finally had their, very authentic, Vietnamese Coffee. Our meal came to a very reasonable 150RMB for the four of us. English and picture menu, as well as parking, are available.
