It was fast, the food was great and quite authentic Vietnamese- I especially enjoyed their vegetarian alternatives of crispy fried tofu ( silken tofu covered in a light cornflour batter which is then fried- delicious). Excellent meal and a great way to start off the evening!

Service was quick and attentive and the food was absolutely delicious! My partner and I had the spicy chicken baos and mushroom dumplings to start - the baos were AMAZING, the chicken crunchy and well cooked and that delicious spicy sauce. The dumplings were also nice though quite expensive given the number you get. For main I got the chicken rice bowl and I was surprised how much I loved this dish. My partner got a noodle dish that he also really enjoyed. Our friends also loved both their starters and their mains. All 4 of us agreed we would definitely return here in the future!
