We love this place. It is set back off the street by the front court yard and this seems to isolate you from that crazy KL traffic. Had a nice dinner as usual. Staff were attentive and helpful as usual. Great place to eat nice food and enjoy some wine from there well stocked little cellar. One point I want... More

Great posters in the wall and atmospheric French music create an inviting ambience. After reading other reviews we shared the pancake starter which was every bit as good as claimed. A great taste experience. And then we shared the chicken noodle salad. Also very tasty. And that was certainly all we needed. Washed down with two glasses of wine all... More

Must try place even for a short stay! Super good! We tried Pomelos salad, chicken nem, Vietnamese crepe and beef pho. We love Vietnamese food in Vietnam and we know well about the food by now. This place was very very good. Satisfactory and had good nostalgie of traveling time in Vietnam. Please try.

Lovely interior in an old shop lot. It has a rustic feel. The selection of food is vast. Decided to order a couple of dishes. Had the deep fried chicken rolls , the fresh prawns- both good. This was followed by the pomelo prawn salad which was also excellent. The crepe with mushrooms, prawns and chicken was good. Beef pho... More

I visited the restaurant during the F1 weekend in October 2016. I had to search a bit for it but is was worth it. Great food, original menu, lovely people. Although it was very busy we got a table quickly, also drinks came rapidly. Food was excellent.

Can here on a weekday when it first opened at 12 30pm. Everything we had tasted amazing with the exception of the beef pho, which was a bit blend and mediocre. Our favourite dishes were the eggplant, pomelo shrimp salad and the good old fried spring rolls. Would recommend a try :)

Love the quaint setting of this restaurant that immediately sets your expectations up for a great experience. Housed in an rustic building, it certainly did not disappoint. Ordered almost everything on the menu as we were a big group. Egg plant was exceptional as was the sky flowers. Nice service- always a plus in KL. Definitely a must try!

Came here on recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint a bit! Amazing real Vietnamese cuisine. We had several dishes but for me the Duck in Tamarind really stood out! What an explosion of flavors! Nice place to sit outside, friendly and efficient service. They also carry a nice winelist that is very reasonably priced!!!!

The ambience and service are tip top, the food unfortunately is very average, and tasteless. Maybe we got an off night, my wife raves about this place and it certainly is very popular. Give it a go, it won't break the bank.
