Couldn't find authentic Vietnamese in any of our dishes - was more safe, generic Thai food. Lukewarm temp and filled out with potatoes (not mentioned on the menu description). Reviews had been great, hence the visit. Can only assume the reviewers hadn't been to Vietnam. Shame to be so disappointed.

I visit this place once a week. Be it by myself, or with friends. The food tastes like a homemade meal. It is cheap. It is consistent, always.

We go here every couple of weeks for a nice light meal. It usually comes to around 100dhs for a large water, starters, crackers and 2 mains. Real fresh Vietnamese taste.

Perfect if you want to eat great food without the pomp and circumstance of a high end restaurant. Go for a Bun dish and you can't go wrong!

We saw this place advertised in the Shortlist magazine as one of Dubai's hidden gems, i.e. A cracker on the restaurant scene. It is a great spot, tasty food, freshly cooked and the free starter of lettuce leaves, onion and bean sprouts was a nice touch. Green tea was good and all in all a relaxing meal in a nice... More

This restaurant carries the most authentic Vietnamese pho I've tasted so far in UAE. Soup is clean and clear... just ease off the MSG. Noodles are not exactly what you will find in south East Asia but good enough. Beef is cooked to almost perfection. Unfortunately they don't deliver outside JLT and for deliveries you have to get deliveroo to... More

Can I just say that Vietnamese food should be cheap and delicious. If you're looking for a 5 star restaurant and 5 star service, go elsewhere! This is literally the only place in Dubai that sells delicious authentic pho at a reasonable price. All other Vietnamese restaurants are in hotels. My fav are the summer rolls and pho! Can't go...

We love Vietnamese food and believe it should we served well worldwide, we are knowledgeable and search it out. Dubai needs great Vietnamese restaurants but this isn't one. The venue at JLT is reasonably close to the station so taxi or train access is fine and it has outside seating.The prices are also reasonable. Where it doesn't deliver is in... More

Ignore the hidden location and relatively basic interior. The food is delicious fresh and full of flavour. Wheelchair accessible but no accessible bathroom.
