Last night I was fortunate enough to go and check out the Vietnamese promotion that is being held in The Restaurant at The Chedi all this week until Saturday 8th November.
I was quite surprised at the pricing, I thought it would have been higher, starters ranged from between RO 7.5 to RO 9.5 and the main courses ranged between RO 10.5 and RO 20. I have to say I was fortunate enough to try everything on the menu, not all of every dish - that'd have been a feat! But I got to sample all of the dishes.

|Yeah I don't know why it's upside down, but these rice paper roll thingies were amazing!|
My favourite starter was the rice paper roll (RO 7.5), quickly followed by the banana flower salad (RO 8.5). Those rice paper roll things, damn I could have eaten 10 of them, they were so delicious. The banana flower salad had smoked duck and was a large portion, I have had smaller salads as a main course before.
The main courses were, to me, not actually as good as the appetizers, but there was 1 stand out main course that was amazing, and I actually ended up stealing most of the dish from my dining partners - this was the smoked sea bass (RO 16.5) which came with lotus seeds (I thought they were chicpeas!) and it was served on a banana leaf. To. Die. For!
