The food is presented in a very attractive way. I enjoy the bun which is shredded lettuce and vegetables with rice noodles under grilled marinated meat with a spring roll sliced on top. Very tasty and healthy. This is a moderately priced BYOB restaurant. Entrees...More

Trying to steer clear of chain restaurants with their pre-made, frozen, stick in the microwave 'fresh' offerings so decided to pop into this small restaurant (very limited seating, think there are around 10-12 tables, not romantic, but basic and functional) . Firstly, staff are extremely...More
