This little Vietnamese restaurant here on Clarence is the ideal venue for a light lunch in both interpretations of "light". Not only is the food light, with clean fresh flavours, so too is the restaurant decor and on a bright winter lunchtime the almost floor-to-ceiling front windows give this intimate dining room the illusion of spaciousness.
I have only eaten here once (at lunchtime) but service was warm and friendly and the menu certainly looked interesting and so whilst I can't attest to the more substantial offerings nor to the place's evening ambience it certainly excelled as the spot for a light and inexpensive lunch.
Favorite Dish: As I said, I've only eaten here once, but the couple of variations of the noodle soups (Pho) that we had were fresh, flavoursome and obviously made from a good quality stock base. Accompanied by nice crunchy raw beansprouts and fresh basil the soups hardly needed the addition of the table condiments.
