Respond to Review of Tien Hiang
Review: We ate here in July 2010. We visited here on a Friday afternoon. Our waiter spoke English (not that we expect that) and gave us English menus upon our asking. He was very congenial. The menu was extensive and prices are fair. Our meal with two appetizers, two entrees, and two (non-alcoholic) drinks came to 30 Euro. I had a Vietnamese cold spring roll to start. It was very fresh and tasty. My partner had shrimp dumplings, they were over-steamed and, therefore, a little gluey. For our mains I had a beef vermicelli dish. On top of noodles were onions, beef, mint, and... strangely... lettuce. The lettuce was the only downside. It got wilted and the chef should have used spinach or bok choi instead. My partner got the cashew chicken which was the preferred entree of the two. The meal was rather satisfying and tasty overall and we were glad we made the special trek to this restaurant. It was very easy to find from the metro but the surrounding neighbourhood is not all that welcoming and rather run-down. Rue Bichat, in particular, looks depressing. Regardless, this is a very clean and happy little place to eat for great Asian food.
