Foods are great, loves noodles, tofu, seafoods and peanuts... of course. Staff are nice. Though, the place or restaurant itself needs improvement, looks old. But overall, we enjoyed the foods we ordered. Staff are good in suggesting which foods they offer are the best.

Hmm, not what we expected after reading the reviews. Dont think most have ever eaten Vietnamese before, or are too generous in the review. Average quality food, not really cheap either, aed 170 for two main courses, two side dishes and two drinks. Strange way of preparing both the duck and the squid, actually the noodles seemed not to be... More

Small unpretentious place on Khalifa Street serving good Vietnamese food at a good price. Frequented by Vietnamese - so they must be good. We have not been to Vietnam and nor claim to be an expert in their cuisine. However we can guarantee that the food is tasty, the quantity is good and the prices are reasonable. What more reasons...

We were at first little surprised by the slightly shabby appearance, however we quickly forgot this as the service was polite and quick, food was fresh and deliciously tasty, with a wide variety of choice, and the price was very reasonable. Well worth a visit and definitely somewhere we would eat again.

As someone who has eaten a lot of pho, this place is a MUST when visiting Abu Dhabi. The chicken/beef pho is scented with great smells and flavors at a reasonable price. For tourists who can't speak fluent English may struggle to communicate with certain members of staff however was not an issue for me so 5/5!

We have eaten here many times, whenever we visit AD in fact, we stop here for a meal. My husband is Vietnamese so we do know good food when we taste it. Hanoi has a good selection of authentic dishes. We love the PHO and the BUN dishes, which are both big bowls of noodles prepared fresh with whatever meat... More

Don't be misled by the reviews on a popular search engine, this is a great choice for Vietnamese cuisine. Both Spring and Summer rolls were fresh and tasty, with fresh herbs to add additional flavor. Pho was also good. Would definitely return if seeking something different from the Arab/European food on offer in Abu Dhabi.
