Lotus Story has a great reputation for Vietnamese food in Olympic Park.
With a rating of 3.9/5 on Zomato, the locals seem to be big fans of Lotus Story in Olympic Park. It's up-market Vietnamese so the decore is clean and modern.
The food is quite nice and with little competition in Olympic Park, many of the local workers come to Lotus Story for lunch.
Above top is the Laksa ($13), with poached chicken, tofu, mint and onion. It's flavoursome and very aesthetically attractive. Below is the Sesame Wagyu Ho Fun ($14), a chinese dish with rice noodles, beef and Asian greens in a soy based sauce. It was tasty.
For beef lovers, (above, $13) is the beef rib stew and below are the ($10, each) Beef Baguettes. A lot of my work colleagues have mentioned how good the Vietnamese Rolls are at Lotus Story. All the components were there, crunchy fresh bread, spicy marinated beef, carrots, coriander and onion. The roll definitely met my expectations.
Overall, all the dishes were tasty and flawless. Lotus Story is definitely worth the 3.9 rating on zomato. It's reasonably priced for a sit down lunch and casual eatery.

Update to Post:
I also came back and tried the chicken vermicelli salad which was nice. It's a more modern version of anything I've had at an authentic Vietnamese restaurant but was still lovely. $15ish
