Watercress is a welcome addition to Palm Springs' expanding Asian food scene. Located in the space once occupied by Serious Food and Drink, the restaurant's dining room is a festive explosion of primary colors, and its menu deep and diverse. Be sure to order the wok fried noodles; they're delectable and addictive. Vegetarians and gluten-phobes can dine without risk on an unusually large selection of special dishes. Service, at least in these early days, remains accommodating and efficient.

Love this place at any time of day !!! As a vegan it is heaven , most dishes can be made with Tofu or a Vegan meat substitute . Friendly helpful staff who when I quiered if my meal was vegan had no problem in checking for me & even told me to check that here was no mayo in it !!! That doesn't happen very often !! Oh did I mention Happy Hour from 3pm to 6pm , great drink deals & $5 food plates , we buy several & share , makes a great dinner !! Or of course you could go for Sunday Brunch !!! $5 drinks or $12 bottomless Bloody Marys, or Mimosas ! I guess you can tell I like this place !!LOL

Had lunch recently with a friend at Watercress Vietnamese Bistro. We were seated outside on a rather windy day. We were quickly seated and given menus. When the waiter came to our table my companion asked for a water with lemon. We were eventually brought some water, but no lemon. My companion asked twice for some lemon and I asked a third time. Eventually we get some lemon for the water. The waiter took our lunch order and we ordered an appetizer and each a Pho Soup. There was a long wait to get any food and then we were brought the appetizer and the Soup at the same time. Not good. The spring roll appetizer with peanut sauce was excellent. The Soups were pretty good. Overall the food was good, but clearly the service was not. I might consider trying this place again and hope the service improves.
