We had dinner at Once Ho’s and arrived early before it filled up. Prompt service. The house wine by the glass was a little disappointing. The summer rolls were fresh and tasty, and the tofu salad had delicious sauce and lots of nuts. The tofu was crispy and delicious. The only slight disappointment was the caramelised pork which didn’t seem to have much pork, mostly crunchy batter and a little too sweet. All the food had super fresh ingredients and an authentic Vietnamese feel. Would recommend.

We eat a lot of Vietnamese (love it)..and were really looking forward to visiting Oncle Ho..however the 2 meals we shared rated between tasteless to horrible. It was a moderately busy night ,however, a 1 hour wait was quite ridiculous for a chicken with noodles and steamed parrotfish. The chicken with noodles "looked the part"..full of herbs, however it was totally tasteless. The parrotfish arrived at the table looking fantastic..2 nice big chunky steamed fillets. Thats where it ended...they were totally raw ( not a little raw..totally!) The manager disappeared with the plate...15 minutes later a properly steamed parrotfish arrived. the fish was great..(sauces again absolutely tasteless)...but lets just say..we've had enough of Oncle Ho...forever!!
The lesson for us out of this was...when there are a lot of poor reviews...dont ignore them!

We were a group of seven people and ordered a selection of dishes to share. The fresh spring rolls were fantastic and the peanut sauce they came with was delicious. We all really enjoyed every dish we were served, even the two children didn't have any complaints. Highly recommend and we will definitely eat here again soon.

Maybe we just came on a bad night, but we all had really disappointing meals. The pork, duck and chicken were all really fatty and gristly, and we certainly needed the accompanying sauces to eat with the rice. Waitresses were hard to find even though there weren't many diners.
Our worst meal in Noumea by a mile - would not recommend it at all.

Besides the french couple that pounced on the only table two remaining at the front it was great. Service was good even when the waitress didn't know English she asked the English speaking waiter to serve us when we had questions.
The salads were delish and so was the rice paper rolls. All the food was fresh. The decor is awesome and it is in a nice location.
Oh specials menu could have been in English as well.
