There's a place in Bruxelles, in front of La Bourse, for those who likes Thai-Viet menu, where you can have a relaxed, even romantic and good dinner, in a cool contest, served by a girl as shine as pretty, who hides kind smiles behind her eyes looking down. Sober soups and the meat can be as strong as you want, as spice as you appreciate... or not.
Thai beer is not the top, so I would stay on classic ones. I'll be back there, whenever Bruxelles will be my destination again.

Also came across this place via a groupon deal. Me and my wife were very satisfied with the menu & the service. We came rather early, so it was not really busy, maybe that's why we could not complain about cold food or food served with intervals.
I'll definitly come back to this restaurant!

Came across this restaurant via groupon deals. Despite so-so reviews on tripadvisor, me and my girlfriend were pleasantly surprised! The service was good, and relatively fast compared to most restaurants. The interior was also very classy. The food was amazing though! We had the springrolls, beef salad, pho soup and thai basil spicy shrimps all of which were very tasty! Having lived in Brussels for 4 years I can definitely say that this is one of the best asian restaurants in the city!
The only downside I would say of the food is that the main course wasn't very much, though my girlfriend disagreed.
All in all, a very pleasant experience and would definitely visit again!

Cold food, no service and an awful atmosphere!

With only one person servicing the table, we had to wait for over an hour before getting service. Plates were served one by one and with intervals of 15 minutes or more, so we couldn't eat together. Other customers were complaining too.

We will never ever visit this dump again!

so we saw this asian cuisine restaurant and had high hopes of having a good last evening dinner. We were taken by a friend to this place since she was our guide through the weekend.

We had our worst experience in a restaurant ever. We were with a party of 5, it took quit some time before we could order but the girl was on her own so she was running around. What we didn't like was that our starters didn't arrive at the same time.. First it took 1,5 hours for the first 2 to receive their soup. 30 minutes later the other 2 had their spring rolls and the last 1 had to wait another 20 minutes, so far enjoying our dinner together. Our main course had the same problem including that the food was cold. It may have been warm at one point but if you serve it on freezing cold plates it loses that heat pretty quickly. If it takes 10 minutes per plate to arrive + to get some rice, you do the math. When we noticed this after the 3rd plate was served we told this to the owner, explaining that this was no way of having dinner and that we were done for the night he did not agree: it were different dishes, so they couldn't be served together. Guess we have a different definition of a restaurant. After putting our foot down and offer to pay for everything we drank and ate, things just escalated and we have never experienced this bad of service. The owner started yelling at us, threatening to call the police. When this argument was on it's highest point it continued further outside the restaurant and a policeman not on duty tried to help us out. Eventually the owner made a compromise. We are people that go out for dinner on a regular basis throughout Europe, and have never walked out of a restaurant because of bad service or food, but this was an experience below all expectations. More people there were complaining that it took so long, and when leaving other costumers agreed with 'this is horrible right'. However, even worse then the long wait was the way we were treated by this owner.

The girl that worked there was extremely nice by the way, it is just impossible to waiter a restaurant on your own.
