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 ate here after a recommendation and we were not disappointed, it’s a big place but is very popular so arrive early or book, we didn’t book but just managed to get in, we had the traditional style spring roll starters and a selection of main courses for the eight of us, everything was delicious. The dessert of chocolate and mint mousse with coconut ice cream was yummy.

It’s a really buzzing place and has a good local feel, we went back again the next night it was so good.

Really tasty and delicious Vietnamese food in this modern style bistro. Fun murals along the wall. All of our food was great, especially the spring rolls. We had the chicken and avocado which were fresh and tasty. The chicken fired rice was also excellent and had some crunchy rice in it as well which added great texture. I had the beef wrapped in betel leaf with vermicelli noodles which were light and fresh. The beef pho was also really good. The cocktail list is interesting and we both had 2 Asian Sapphires which were different and tasty.

Propaganda sets out to be uncompromisingly modern and achieves that without any self consciousness. The murals depict revolution. The food is very good. The mostly Vietnamese menu choices are varied and excellent. In spite of the fact that everything moves at quite a pace the service was first class and English speaking.

Yes, it certainly pitched at tourists but do not be put off by that. It is big and tour parties arrive regularly. However, a word of warning. If you are looking for a romantic candlelit dinner then this may not be the place for you!
