This place is a very simple restaurant but the food was really yummy! The stuff are really friendly too! We wanted to try so many things so we asked what it would be the best for us to start, we got the summer roll, the one you receive the filing in a plate, then you need to roll yourself the... More

A very nice restaurant. We went twice in a week; the first time I had chicken in red curry and the second time the pho soup. The soup in particular was extremely tasty. The meals were cheap and the service was good. One waitress spoke English.

I went there with a group of friends. It was nice, the food was average and the bill was cheap. To me this is why you go there: cheap ok food. I'll go back in group but it won't be my choice.

Disclaimer: I have just recently returned from Vietnam, but this review still holds truth. Ambience - Different in a pleasant kind of way. It is actually tucked away in a little chalet on the outskirts of town. The inside is, well, a chalet, with a ton of buddhas sitting around. I think it could be nice to go for lunch... More

This little chalet is surprising and the place has an atmosphere of its own. The food is quite good particularly the soups which were a very good choice. The service is very kind, but certainly when the place is full, then you must be patient and be prepared to wait, which is not always agreable.

The setting is fun - little chalet crunched up against a building, quite unexpected. The waitresses and cooks are all first generation vietnamese, so I was really looking forward to authentic vietnamese cuisine. However, I was pretty disappointed. The pho had too strong a cinnamon taste, my pork chops were unremarkable, my daughter's beef satay had paper thin shreds of... More

One of the best Asian restaurants in Lausanne. Family style. Great portions. Smiling service. But if you go during peak times, be prepared to wait - a lot - for everything from the menu, to being served! Still, highly recommended. 4 stars instead of 5 because they could really hire an extra person to take care of the delayed service... More

Frankly I wonder why people choose this restaurant. I’ m living in Lausanne and decided to give it a try again, after I read some good critics on Trip Advisor. My first visit some years ago was disappointing and so was my second! The starter, green Papaya salad for 17 francs, was far too expensive. Little Papaya and lots of... More
