Inspired by French Colonial Southeast Asia in the 1920s, the interior of this Vietnamese restaurant is classically elegant. The most beautiful part of the dining space is the terrace that's drenched in natural light and decorated with tiles, hand-made wicker chairs, antique mirrors, light fixtures and vibrant plants.
