Feeling a yen for Vietnamese pancakes, pho, or sticky, claypot-caramelised fish? Is your yen for a space that's casual but chic - walls painted deep-red and adorned with classy artwork? Then yen no more! This popular eatery (warning: book in advance) has all that and more. Depending who you ask, they do The Best tamarind-tinted, duck-filled crispy pancakes, The Best pho, The Best tangy tamarind fish soup, The Best banquet menus and the list goes on. Among the suburb's more no-frills establishments, the smart-casual vibe here feels rather gentrified, but unless your yen is for grunge, you'll be well satisfied.
