Interesting selection of soups and large bowls of vermicelli for a reasonable cheap price, but the cheap price comes comes at the cost of taste and quality. The venue is characterless, cheap, and bland. The parking is not great as there is not enough at...More

I went with a group of friends for a celebration - many of us would not go back. I had salad rolls and shrimp vermicelli, and my companion had green onion cakes with seafood Tom Yum soup. My vermicelli had no flavour at all, except...More
