I've been there before and it was good, but this time standards had slipped. My food had to go back twice to get it heated, and the rice was still stone cold. The atmosphere is cheerful enough, and the soups are OK, if basic.

Great for a quick, streetfood-y lunch/dinner. Service is friendly and the ingredients are so fresh. Summer rolls are awesome. Also has vegan options.

Nothing wrong with it just expensive for a cafe as it is not a restaurant ambience. No authentic feel to the food a bit like what I make at home from a cookery book.

The service was disappointing from the moment we walked in, we had to keep getting the waiter's attention to order drinks then food. I had the lemongrass chicken with vermicelli which was very bland and as it was served in a deep bowl, the chicken...More
