Inexpensive good food in downtown bruxelles, daily special or "menu du jour" is 5-7€. Long menu with lots of items. Tea just 1€, dim sum with seafood for 2, and noodles with chicken and beef where good.

I am here for lunch. The place is full and the waitress and kitchen staff seem to be completely unable to serve the demand. The English of the waitress is extremely limited. I was waiting for 30 mins after the starter arrived - not at all what I ordered. Thus, no starter and after 35 mins got a plate of... More

Da Kao is one of the most popular Asian food restaurants for locals in Brussels. It's cheap enough so you can go every week, and it's very nice in every aspect. Maybe the only thing to improve is to market their special dishes better. I find myself always returning to the 'Special Da Kao' mix menu because I don't want... More

Great food, great price too, especially compared to the rest of Brussels. We had a kind of specialty plate with four appetisers and two main courses, (because we couldn't choose a regular dish from the menu; too many great-sounding stuff) and we only paid 13eu each! We didn't finish it, because it was too much, evidently, but it tasted wonderful... More

On a cold and wet November night, I was in need of some seriously warming food in Brussels. Pho was my goal, as there seems to be nothing better at warming the soul (at least in my case). I searched out Da-Kao, and it didn't disappoint. Warm reception from the staff, nicely and cosy restaurant and food that fit the... More

It's one of those places where you have cravings for. The Da Kao Special, as everyone mentioned, is so addictive. Be prepared to ask a doggy bag but I can't help myself from not getting it every time. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful, some even speak Dutch. Definitely a must go!

Generous portions. We were not very hungry but it was so good we ate everything ! Our waitress was lovely. She welcomed us warmly and checked on... More

Good food, good portions, good service, great prices! Also ideal for my vegetarian friend, so much so that we went twice in three nights.
