Fabulous and tasty food. I love visiting here and do so regularly. Staff are friendly and the dining space is open and pleasant. No matter whether I try new dishes or stick with my trusty faves, it never disappoints.
Modern SE Asian cuisine. I was expecting Vietnamese given the name, however, the menu was wider ranging than that. The quality of the food was excellent, especially considering the mid-range price. The dishes that depart from your usual pad thai and salt/pepper squid were the best. Our orders included both PT and S/P S which were very good, but the real standouts were the less standard dishes. The scallop on the betel leaf - this was as good as any fine dining I've had at any 'celebrity chef' restaurant. The simple sounding chicken maryland w/ black bean was tender with perfectly crisp skin - I usually detest chicken skin but found this a delight. Desserts were good - recommend banana wrapped in pastry. The creme brulee serving was huge with an interesting fairy floss type confection on top. Really good though at first instance, the blue of the floss seemed a little odd. The staff were professional and friendly and gave off a genuine sense of goodwill. We went on a Fri night and the place was full.
Amazing blend of Vietnamese, thai and other Asian fusion. Thoroughly recommended. Try the salmon red curry with thai eggplant, simply stunning. Have been at least three times now!
