“Authentic Vietnamese Street food!!!”
We visited this small place early in the evening sometime back. It which is located near Medipoint Hospital on the road which is a new shortcut from Aundh to Baner Road.
Half of the shop floor space is open kitchen and rest is covered by ground seating arrangement which can accommodate 3-4 small families. There was provision available to accommodate 2-3 more using low seating temporary furniture outside.
Vibrant color combination and mix and match crockery.
Select Vietnamese street food preparations. Majority can be converted in veg or chicken or beef or pork as per choice.
We tried –
Vietnamese Veg Spring Rolls (deep fried) – Freshly prepared, very crisp shell and filling was very nice. Dip served was thin but tasty!
Cheese Sticks – Piping hot, mellow and tasteful!
Pho Chua (with beef) – Pho Chua is a popular Vietnamese sweet-sour soupy preparation which usually has 4-5 main ingredients i.e. rice noodles, soya sauce, peanuts, pickles and herbs; this one was little bit improvised (with some freshly chopped vegies). The beef pieces were thin and tender. Presence of mint leaves was magical. Great!
Fried noodles Veg – Stir fried noodles with spring onion, carrot, cabbage. Little oily and spicy. Nice!
Everything was freshly prepared and tasteful.
Portion sizes are decent but not very big.
Service- Little sluggish because only two ladies handle entire operation right from taking the orders to table cleanup including cooking.
While we were having dinner, our 6 months old kid got cranky. Elderly female (support staff) immediately tried to offer help so that we can eat… though I thanked and declined politely but it was a rare and very kind gesture.

There is set meal option available and it you want to enjoy it, you have to go in the noon time because by evening it is over.
Don’t hesitate to ask about the preparation ingredients because some items taste different than usual.
If you take more time in ordering you are not only delaying your food but someone else’s as well.
