O'Viet Vietnamese Cuisine, Sunway Pyramid

>> Thursday, August 28, 2008


We had a tough time deciding where to eat & what to eat. Three of our friends got converted from GT position to ABTA position, which of course comes with a pay increment! Lovely :) The usual thing for 'converts' to do when they get their first pay increment is to treat their wonderful friends for a meal, & yeap, we had our share! Hahaha....a big thank you to TL, AC, & Q!!

Overall, the food at O'Viet was average. Nothing too great to shout about. In fact, when compared to Vietnam Kitchen, which we visited a few weeks ago, Vietnam Kitchen was better in taste.

O'Viet Restaurant at the Skating Ring area on Ground floor

3 Colors Delight (RM6.90)
O'Viet's special mixture of ice shavings, cream, cincau (grass jelly), cendol, & red beans. Joe said that it's quite nice cos it's not too sweet.

Watermelon Juice (RM7.50)

Optima Vietnamese Coffee [Medium Strength] (RM7.50)
Vietnamese coffee consisting of 4 types of coffee beans. Quite "kow" man...until I can't sleep at night!! *floats around*

Passiona Vietnamese Coffee [Mild Strength] (RM8.00)
Nicely fragrant Vietnamese coffee with a combination of "ingredients that I can't recall" :P

Vietnamese Coffee 'pot'
Grinded coffee beans placed on a sieve, while hot water is poured into the sieve container to slowly drip into the glass below

Mixed Grill Platter (RM24.90)
This platter consists of grilled meat (chicken or beef)& vermicelli, with an assortment of vegetables to be included into your spring roll. It comes with a sweet, sour, spicy Vietnamese sauce & a peanut sauce. Not too bad in taste.

Durian Pancake (RM6.90)
The pancake is rather nice, although it didn't feel like some pancake. The pancake is VERY thin & is used to wrap the combination of durian & cream into a shape of a durian seed :P Quite nice la, but a little high in price

BBQ Lemongrass Chicken Chop Rice (RM13.90)
Nothing extremely special about this dish. The rice was rather dry. It's not something that we would recommend if you're in a Vietnamese restaurant anyways :)

Grilled Lemongrass Chicken & Lamb with Vietnamese Vermicelli (RM12.90)
This is one of the 'authentic' Vietnamese dishes. It's actually mixed vermicelli with veggie & grilled meat. Joe & Toby said it's ok in taste.

Vietnamese Rice Paper Spring Roll (rice paper RM0.40/sheet)
This is a DIY (do-it-yourself) dish. We didn't know how to wrap it & there wasn't any 'user guide' around *lol* We just plopped everything inside & tried our skills in wrapping a spring roll! Some of my friends were even wondering if the layer stuck on the plate

My completed product!
Ok, I'm SO not a spring roller! Gah. I've to improve on this art!

O'viet Seafood Special (RM14.90)
CF said that this dish is highly NOT recommended though we felt that it was alright. The soup isn't spicy nor sour, but somewhat tastes like clear soup ("ching thong" in Cantonese) with chilli oil

Grilled Chicken Platter (RM14.90)
This dish is not too bad in taste. It's a little small in portion, but it's good as a snack

Grilled Fish & Rice (RM15.90)
This is just like the grilled chicken with rice, except that it's fish instead. Nothing to shout about. 'Nuff said.

Buddies :P
AC- "I 'no eye see' these fellas d"
CR- "Is my food coming yet? I'm hungry :("
YL- "Zoom the lense at me! :D"
CF- "Hmm...I wonder if I've ordered the right dish..."

The whole gang

Complmentary Fruit Platter
O'Viet's management did something that required apology, so this is the sign of apology! Well, I won't black-list this restaurant now... :P I'm mean...
