While the restaurant is located in a "bad" part of town the ambiance, decor, food and service is worth the trip. Went, not expecting much as spicy or Asian food is not liked by Chileans but was very pleasantly surprised. While the food wasn't particularly spicy it was very pleasant. A little expensive for Chile, but, service was good, so... More

Went for dinner for 2, we have our reservation cause if you want a table not in the back corner you must make your reservation. From the outside it looks like nothing fancy and even common place, not giving you a good first thought about your selection for dinning. But when the owner welcomes you and pass through the small...

Came here with a friend while we were visiting Santiago, the food was incredible we ended up getting an entree, main and a dessert! Everything was delicious and the staff were very accommodating when I asked for recommendations. All up for a three course meal was about $55 NZD which is very decently priced for a quality meal. If I'm... More

We tried their Vietnamese pork noodle bowl and the Pho. Most of the elements of the dishes were there but in the end, lacked the essence of what Vietnamese food actually is. The tastes were bland, boring and did not pop with sharp flavours as it should. I can understand that the food may be toned down for the Chilean... More

While traveling through Santiago I made it point to stop here. So glad I did. Loved the ambiance and the pho soup. Worth making a special trip in my opinion. I was here November 2013.

Having lived in Vietnam for 6 years, I was thrilled when I read reviews that there was an authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Santiago.

I'm from Berlin visiting Santiago at the moment and was craving for a Pho soup. As a vietnamese, I know how an authentic Pho should taste like... and this is exactly the opposite unfortunately. The restaurant is situated in a great area, the staff is very nice but all that doesn't matter if the food is boring as hell. The... More

I have been there in two ocassions. The first time is better cause you are more surprised about the scenery. Food is good, service too. I think cocktails are the best part. Good price for money.
