First of all the place needs a good clean. Secondly with really nice furniture that the restaurant has with few strategic moves the place could look really cool.

An excellent new restaurant, run by a Vietnamese, offering very good fusion food. I usually don't care for fusion, but this was very well done: tasty, fresh, beautifully served and not expensive. When the weather allows it is nice to dine upstairs on the terrace.
