A newish Vietnamese place with colourful touch screen displays for ordering. Basically ok, but nothing out of this world.

In the bun/rice vermicelli dish, nice roast pork, with a firm supple texture, even if the lemongrass flavour was not very obvious. Tasty spring roll as well, and along with the melange of shredded herbs (mint, perhaps basil), carrot and lettuce, seemed ok under the cloak of nuoc cham/sweet vietnamese sauce.

Pho special was similarly ok but nothing fanstastic -- the broth had flavour but nothing compelling. Beef was ok, as were the chicken and prawns.

A caramel custard seemed a little grainy.
