All dishes have amazing flavors in preparation and light sauces. Duck, chicken or steak and shrimp were delicious. Appetizers and salads offer lots of variety. Bar is also a great spot to relax and even eat dinner.

Fantastic place. Inside you find yourself in a French colonial villa from the indochina era. Intimate setting. Good food and very friendly staff!

I was stood up for a date. Decided to enjoy myself regardless. The staff was very accommodating and did not rush me as some do with a single patron. The food was colonial fusion, sophisticated and delicious. The guy didn't know what he was missing.

Probably. Yes. But in my view the restaurant is so underwhelming in all areas that I'd find a better way to spend my time and money
