Great Food For All Palates

Founded by the late Vietnamese singer Phi Nhung, you will have a great experience at this branch. Airconditioned well. Fantastic ambience. Decent Vietnamese & Chinese dishes with a good selection of beverages. The wet wipes are not free so if you opened/used/take them, you have to pay for it. This restaurant has some vegetarian dishes so select the options that are vegan friendly if you are vegan!

Fantastic vege/vegan food

Absolutely beautiful food, I highly recommend this restaurant! We ordered vege prawn crackers, the clay pot tofu, and a stunning tofu coconut salad. Everything was superb, the staff were friendly and equipped with good meal recommendations (we needed them, there’s so much to choose from!). We’ll definitely be back

Nice food

A large menu of Chinese and Vietnamese vegetarian food. We ordered fresh spring rolls, a satay vegetable stir fry, braised 5 spice seitan and eggplant and tofu claypot which was fantastic. The only thing I didn’t love was the spring rolls - the rice paper had not been softened at all and it was really hard and chewy. Most dishes around 65-70k so not the cheapest but still a good option.
