O Mai Restaurant Review

: O Mai serves well-seasoned Vietnamese food in a spare, stylish setting (patrons pay a bit more for the d├ęcor). Try the grilled prawns wrapped in rice paper with basil, cucumber and peanut sauce or the duck salad with crispy daikon, cilantro carrots and pickle. Save room for savory soups such as the oxtail broth with beef, rice noodles and herbs. More exotic but equally tasty options include red snapper in a chili lime sauce.
