We visited this restaurant on a Chef's Line gastronomic tour of Melbourne. The style of cooking, the amazing tantalising tastes of Vietnamese ingredients fused with western cooking, and the standard of service all exceeded our expectations. Touché to Azman for looking after us so well....More

The food was amazing and the staff were accommodating to our friend who was allergic to citrus. The cocktails are well priced and better priced than the wine.

We had a superb meal with six people sharing many different dishes which was really exciting. However, we ordered the pho which is a speciality and were very disappointed that the chicken broth was completely tasteless. The passion fruit and banh xeo salads were delicious.
