The Orange Lantern Vietnamese Cuisine

Average: 3 (1 vote)

Replete with orange lanterns, bright-hued Vietnamese paintings and orange walls, there are value-for-money set meals here and yummy signatures like the special beef noodle soup, BBQ beef wrapped in betel leaves, and rice paper roll with chicken.

With two other outlets in Singapore, the Orange Lantern legacy seems to be going strong. We popped by this outlet to see how it measures up against its sister outlets. On a weekday evening, there was a pretty good crowd already. The recognizable orange signboard was there—as were the orange lanterns and bright-hued Vietnamese paintings gracing the walls prettily. The interior was done up in shades of orange, infusing the restaurant with a cheery, welcoming vibe. We tried to navigate the menu but were slightly floored by the choices available. The friendly wait staff recommended the set dinner—which would dish out one appetizer, two mains and two drinks—a great deal if there was ever was one. We ordered the strangely-colored pennywort juice, which tasted a bit weird. The plum soda was pleasant enough and the usual dip whetted our appetite nicely. We didn’t really detect tremendous differences between our phos—the sliced beef with Vietnamese flat noodles in beef soup and the special beef noodle soup with brisket and beef balls—but both were competently executed. Drop by for a reasonably good meal that will not bust your pocket.
