Pretty Good Food

The restaurant's serving for Sliced Beef Pho (Bo Tai) is definitely generous. Apart from the large portion of Pho, there are also quite a generous portion of beef. The soup, topped with onion and spring onion, is tasty. The beef is thinly sliced and tender, but they are in lumps. This result in some part of the beef not totally cooked and/or harder to bite. Otherwise, this is quite a good dish. I always like Pho, the Pho here definitely does not disappoint! Like how we have Pho in Vietnam, there is a plate of vegetables, namely beansprout and basil leaves, for us to choose whether we want to add to our bowl of noodle. Pork Spring Roll and Rice Paper Roll are delicious. The pork spring roll is crispy and sweet while the sauce for the Rice Paper Roll are tasty.

Will not return. Terrible service.

Would not patronise this place again even if the meal is free. 

The food is average at its best. Mediocre is the choice of vocabulary for description for most of the spread.

Hygiene is highly questionable as they prepare the spices on a table in the middle of the restaurant & the staff, though wearing gloves, do everything while the gloves are on including taking orders & cleaning up. 

Last but definitely not least, the word "terrible" is a total understatement for the level of service delivered here. The so-called lady boss sounded like we owe her a living even though we are the one fuelling her business. Plain rude, unbelievably arrogant & absolutely crude. Such an unpleasant dining experience there. 

My advice is that unless you are looking for something to spice up your day, that is making yourself upset & angry, otherwise please opt for something else. There are so many choices for dining at marina square.

Even Mcdonalds would be a better choice. Easier on the pocket & definitely, a happier dining experience. It is so hard to say I'm loving it for this horrible restaurant comparatively.

Really Good Food

The food here is really good and authentic. The chicken wings were surprising excellent. The dry pork pork and spring roll noodle was also great. Found the food here to be as authentic and good as those in Vietnam when I was on holidays there. Easy to get to at Marina Square & just a short walk from City Hall MRT underpass.
