Description: Propaganda, perhaps the first Vietnamese bistro in the world, is renowned for great wine and Vietnamese food pairing (we ordered from their surprisingly affordable Food & Wine Discovery menus) but do not miss out if you happen to pass by in the day time and order an outstanding Vietnamese banh mi (in home-baked bread) while you enjoy the commissioned mural art in propaganda art style.

We enjoyed a light lunch outside and it was all we expected: solid menu, drink list including local craft beers, attentive service and lively atmosphere. It is a busy spot and a table outside might be difficult to score...but the inside is a really cool setting too. Go in for pictures...it's worth it.

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.

Stopped here during a city wander. A nice spot to sit and relax while eating reasonably priced and delicious food
We enjoyed a variety of entrees for mains and then shared the dessert specials. ..so yummy. ...
The place was busy and the service was good

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.

We didn't see any locals, only tourists. A bit pricey but the quality of the food was ok. Nothing extraordinary.

Dear Ifigeneia D,

Thank you for visiting us and to let us know about your experience.
Indeed, due to our location and reputation, we're having both tourist and local guests. Some time of the week we received mostly tourists when on other times we're having mostly locals.
You might have been here on a tourist peak time.

Thanks and regards.
