With it’s focus on Traditional Vietnamese fare using local ingredients and dishes designed for sharing. You will find a beautifully designed room that is bright, high ceilings, wood paneled and the work of notable designer Craig Stanghetta.
A pot of Oolong Tea was the perfect beginning to sharing the delicious Papaya Salad with fresh papaya, carrot, lemon, onion, mixed herbs, prawn, pork loin, peanuts and house made dressing; along with their outstanding Chicken Wings tender and juicy with butter garlic.
The Bánh Xèo Sàigòn (Vietnamese Crepe) – Crispy rice flour pancake filled with sliced pork, prawns, green onion and bean sprouts. Served with lettuce, mixed herbs and nước mắm is another delicious traditional dish. Eating traditional Vietnamese it’s always a good idea to order a Pho, and here it is no different, I had the Phở Gà free range boneless chicken with rice stick noodles in a delicious chicken broth.
I had some of their iced Vietnamese coffee to go with the house-made outstanding Coconut Ice Cream with Avocado, such a great combination.
This is a gem worth visiting, bring friends, bring family to share a selection of dishes.
