I didn't think the food here was good at all. The ambience was probably its only saving grace. For more details visit http://doriateo.blogspot.sg/2014/12/a-bit-of-vietnam.html
I had their Chicken Pho. I was very disappointed by it. They didn't really use pho. It was a bit too thin and the texture wasn't smooth at all. The soup was too bland.
I also had their Vietnamese Vermicelli with fried fish cake. Sadly, this wasn't good as well. It came with three sauces which you had to mix it in. One of the sauces was oil?! It was so unhealthy i didn't dare putting any of it in and my vermicelli tasted really bland. This was served cold as well. I would say this dish was certainly not what i was expectation.
Give this place a miss.
I am a fan of beef Pho. Ordered their cooked and sliced beef pho. The broth is ok, not fantastic. Sliced beef is too fatty, which is the only flaw. I have never eaten beef pho that served fatty sliced beef (like those Yoshinoya type). They also have a set meal that consists of a bowl of noddles, 1 spring roll and 1 drink for less than $10. If I am really hungry or have a craving for beef pho I may pop by again just because I work nearby.
Very happy to find Crystal Jade opening a Vietnamese restuarant. However, all the few dishes we ordered looked nice but tasted horrible. We ordered a noodle each and some sides. I can't believe it's Crystal Jade, i expect some standard.
Not just the food, service is also poor. Waitress did not take down my main course. When i flaged for her, she told me this will take very long to cook, do you still want? Of cos! I was thinking then i go hungry without dinner? My vermicelli came less than 5 mins wait.
Will never step into Crystal Jade Viet Cafe again.
