This place got rave reviews online, so I decided to give it a whirl last time I was in Dunwoody. The ambiance is definitely adorable, a quaint mix of Vietnamese and French decor. The servers are attentive, and you have your choice of sitting inside or outside. There’s also a very welcoming waiting area with couches and magazines – though we didn’t have to wait because it was a Tuesday. For seating, we chose inside, as the small patio was getting a bit crowded.
My dining companion ordered the Ginger Chicken Claypot, which was also a bit too simple. Some chicken steamed in broth served with plain white rice and steamed vegetables (no flavorings) – for $16.25! She commented that it needed salt, and it looked very boring to me.
The only saving grace to this ultra plain meal was that we still had room for dessert. Unlike our entrees, the banana and nutella crepe we ordered would be worth a trip back. For me, the piece de resistance was that it had coconut in it too.
Needless to say, this isn’t a place I’ll be rushing back to. However, I would entertain the idea of returning just to eat that dessert, and perhaps a few appetizers like more grape leaves, some spring rolls or maybe even a soup. The cocktails all looked really good, too, but I wasn’t drinking that night. They can keep the main dishes though.
