Great food, great service decent prices. Definitely worth another visit. Be warned, when the staff ask if you want spicy they really mean spicy! Get a table close to the bar if you want peace from the traffic.

We can recommend this place! there were a view comments on tripadivisor that the staff is not nice: we can't agree. The staff was very nice. The food was cheap but very good. We orderd red Thai Curry and Sweet and Sour Chicken and it was so good!

I ate here a few times during my stay, everytime the food was good the service was great and the price is reasonable! Dishes I recommend are: Tom yum goon soup, eggplant in tomato sauce, and Swiss rosti.

What I've noticed in the 4 days I've been here is how hard it is to find really good, real Vietnamese food at a decent price.
