The duck spring rolls are nice but mains were tasteless and very expensive. Paying for the decor and area. Nice place to sit with a beer but eat elsewhere.

I wasn't too amazed with the spring rolls (we had the omelet and avocado one) but the chicken 'pho' and the tri colored rice with pulled chicken was reealy great! Service was fine and the place was very clean.
