The rice paper rolls were really nice and fresh. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
Unfortunately, this may be the only nice thing I can say about this restaurant.
Anna Vietnamese confused me a little. It really stood out to me more as a Chinese restaurant then Vietnamese. It had no Pho dishes and only two noodle dishes (one egg noodle dish and the other a rice noodle dish). The dishes were not authentic at all and that alone was crushingly disappointing.
Tonight, I had the ‘house speciality’ chicken curry. The chicken throughout this dish was terrible quality, which led me to eat just the potatoes with rice. My partner wouldn’t even try the chicken due to the amount of fat and grey matter evident.
The second dish we ordered was spicy (pork) cabbage rolls which was suppose to come in “special plum sauce”. This plum sauce was sweet and sour sauce you get out of the bottle. There was no spice, let alone any flavour (besides copious amounts of salt) to these cabbage rolls.
Overall, a complete non-event. Not too sure why the reviews on Urbanspoon are above the 70% mark. Will not be returning and not much else to report on. If you do feel like venturing to Anna Vietnamese after this review, be sure to bring along your own alcoholic beverages. This venue is BYOB.
