Ba Noi's

Monday, October 31, 2011 - 2 comments

Being a foodie and a group buying addict, my dad bought 2 coupons for a Vietnamese restaurant called Ba Noi's located in Makati. The promo offers 4 dishes.

Fried Spring Rolls (Php 190)
Chicken in Cellophane Noodle Soup (Php 195)
Chicken in Caramel Sauce (Php 240)
Stir Fried Water Spinach (Php 90)

And I must say, we were not completely satisfied with the food. Having tasted the flavors of Bawai's and Pho Hoa, our taste-buds expects similar quality or even better. The menu served with the promo completely lacks interesting flavors. Everything tasted bland and quite ordinary. Maybe because the prices were cut into half by the group buying site that the quality of the food were affected??? I had high hopes especially after seeing the 2 awards displayed at their entrance.

The Fried Spring Rolls tasted like plain ground pork that needs more seasoning. Even with the dipping sauce (w/c was quite salty) the rolls were still unsatisfactory. 

The Chicken in Cellophane Noodle Soup tasted like a regular chicken sotanghon soup that needs more salt. If it weren't for the hoisin paste, the soup would have been a complete disaster.

The Chicken in Caramel Sauce was quite ordinary, though it was okay, I found nothing interesting about it. And the serving size was too small!

The Stir Fried Water Spinach was also ordinary.

Really, I'm guessing it's due to the price-cut brought by the group buying scheme that the food quality was greatly affected???

I would rate our dining experience as 5 out of 10 stars.
