We were in town and wanted to try this vegan asian restaurant. What drew us in was the Pho, which was great here. As a vegetarian, we have transitioned from eating a lot of mock meats and this place didn't offer lots of variety with mock meats. They did also have some dishes that were all plant-based. I was disappointed... More

Great vegan choice in this restaurant. We had two excellent meals in here and thoroughly enjoyed them. We are vegetarians and were impressed with the international cuisine on offer. Well worth a visit.

Great choice and wonderfully cooked food. Enjoyed the Phad thai, fried rice, spicy noodles and lemongrass Tofu. The desserts were the highlight. Easy parking after 6 pm nice place to check out in downtown

The reviews here are right. I ate here in December and loved it. The food is really tasty and every course is delightful and full of taste. The only piece of advice I would give is re the soups. You might be used to small portions if you are from the UK. So, if this is so, bear in mind... More
