The food menu is various (traditional Vietnamese and Chinese dishes combined with local ingredients, from entrees to main foods, salads, desserts). Beside, every Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy yum cha with a heap of tasty food. Don't miss it when you are in Darwin.

Tasty meal, although others in my group had meals which should have come with a sauce. Good variety on menu.

I quite often come here for a quick lunch during the week. The gado gado is excellent and very fresh. The pho is also very nice and very filling. The staff are usually very quick and friendly.

We were there one night pretty late. The atmosphere was delightful (we were sitting outside) - view of the street, but still pulled back. The food was pretty good. All in all, this is definitely a place to return to, especially in the late evening.

We stopped in here to get lunch and were quite pleased with our meals. The food was fresh and served quickly. There are no toilets onsite, they are in the shopping centre. Staff were a little disorganised with two people taking our orders (one for...More
