Herbs 4/F China Hong Kong Centre 122 Canton Road Tsim Sha Tsui Tel 2377 3805 Grub: Mostly Vietnamese, but with a number of dishes common in local eateries. Vibe: The decor is attractive without being over-elaborate. Pale yellow walls dotted with framed prints are offset by rattan lampshades. In the daytime, large windows let in a lot of light. It's a shame there's not much to see, though, other than flyovers. Who to bring: Big groups - most of the dishes are good for sharing. What's hot: It's always tempting, in Vietnamese restaurants, to turn straight to the pho and spring roll pages. The dishes are famous for a reason; but Herbs has quite a varied menu, so it's worthwhile having a good look through it. Starters, for example, includes an appetiser combo with deep fried soft-shelled crab, beef satay, chicken in pandanus leaf and deep-fried spring rolls. You could, in fact, make an entire meal out of snacks alone. Since the dishes are designed for sharing, the more people in your group, the more dishes you get to try and the cheaper it all becomes. There's a wide range of rice and vermicelli dishes available, including beef cubes and red rice, a popular dish in many Vietnamese restaurants. The shredded chicken and steamed rice also looks good. There is also a good selection of hot-pot dishes. Braised chicken wings, beef satay and fish curry were all tempting and are probably as good as the aubergine and minced pork with salted fish. As an added extra, you might like to try the grilled Japanese mackerel. There are plenty of other seafood dishes with crab and giant prawn, but these tend to be quite expensive. There are also numerous variations of fried vegetable available. Most of them seem to be common to all Asian eateries: the Chinese broccoli with garlic is pretty much the same as you could find anywhere. And if you really can't resist that bowl of pho, the Herbs Jumbo beef noodle soup does look very good. What's not: There are no desserts on the menu. An extra member of staff on duty wouldn't go amiss - the ones that were there were helpful and friendly, but it did take a bit of effort to get their attention. Cost: Many of the starters and snacks are available in different sized servings. Satay sticks, for example, cost HK$22-HK$58 depending on how many you order. Pho is HK$38-HK$46, fried rice dishes are HK$25-HK$58. Main dishes start at HK$58 and go up to HK$218 for crab and noodle hot pot. Drinks are around HK$15-HK$25.
