First Review by Tim_nottingham

fusion food, with an vegan retail shop - Edit

The staff was the best experience. They spoke English well, and were very eager to offer help. Upon first seeing the menu, it was had to chose something for a single diner, so it seems to work better for groups. However some things like vegan burgers are offered, but I was mostly looking for Vietnamese dishes. There are daily set menus that range from 70k-90k and they include a rice, veg, soup and usually two other options.As they advertise, it's a fast-food style restaurant, but the atmosphere is quite upscale for common vegetarian restaurants around town. The shop downstairs offers a lot of vegan ingredients such as non-dairy creamer. They even stock Tom's of Maine organic toothpaste, which I grew up using as a child in Maine (USA). That was impressive.

Pros: Staff, staff, staff, Some great items in the downstairs shop, fried curry wantons, and other unique items worth

Cons: the price compared to the portion

Excellent Food and Service. - Edit

You enter the restaurant using stairs at the back of a well stocked shop which I will comment on later. The takeaway service is ordered at a counter at the front of the shop.

The restaurant is big and fitted out to a high standard including the toilets. Seating is a choice of sofa seats or high backed chairs. There are a number of attentive, smartly dressed staff on hand. There is a decent choice on the menu including set lunches and best of all vegan deserts including ice cream.

The prices are quite high but I suppose they reflect the ambience and high quality of the decor and staff. Portion sizes are quite small making the prices seem higher. However food quality is excellent and I ordered a second tub of the chocolate ice cream. The drinks are particularly expensive and I don't feel they reflect value for money.

The shop has an excellent choice of vegan goods both Vietnamese and imported. The prices recfiect the import costs and are expensive however they are clearly displayed so they are not a shock at the till.

Overall I'm giving a 4, food quality and service I rate at 5 but price and portion size I give a 3 for so I've averaged it at 4. These ratings do not include the shop. The acid test to me is "would I return" abs the answer is definitely yes but it will be a special occasion place not an everyday eatery.
