Northern Vietnamese and Thai food with a clean, contemporary twist sum up the menu here, but the recent addition of a new bar, function room and terrace, larger kitchen and wine room have added extra spice. Otherwise, the winning recipe remains the same - knowledgeable staff steer you through smart selections from an encyclopedic global wine list, while chef Tuoi Do, with an eye on freshness, continually tweaks her outstanding menu, designed as food to share. Well-balanced flavours and textures define the signature opener of Hampshire pork wrapped in betel leaves. Among the main courses, lightly grilled quail with goji berries is given aromatic lift with Vietnamese herbs, while the depth of flavour of snapper in yellow curry is a highlight. The superb cellar may tempt diners to bypass dessert, but that could be a strategic error, especially if the tapioca with orange and Sichuan pepper ice-cream, coconut panna cotta or lime brûlée are on offer.
