We had the fried spring rolls and the fried noodles with chicken and vegetables and both dises tasted bad. The meat in the spring rolls tasted as if it was too old and the stir fry was greasy and the only thing you could really taste was the overdose of black pepper...

We went 3 times to this cafe and enjoyed it each time. I loved the caramelised prawns in the clay pot and also enjoyed finishing off the night with a chocolate pancake. My husband had to clay pot dishes, one with pork and another with chicken. He loved both of them. The staff a very friendly and professional .

We had a great lunch and dinner at the Chocolate cafe in Da Lat. On our second visit the manager remembered us and even remembered that my friend was ordering the same dish as she had loved it so much the first time. They offer a mixture of western and Vietnamese cuisine; we ate Vietnamese which was fresh and tasty.... More

Came here twice due to TA rating and likeable menu. Sweet and sour pork was tasty but small portion. Lemon grass chicken was too "grassy". Smoothies were great. Steak was terrible. To be expected I guess in Vietnam however it was relatively expensive. The nachos were shocking. Potato chips were used instead of corn chips! Portion was small. In short... More

Food was great - a bit basic, but tasty all the same. Great location, right in the centre of the backpacking area. The cafe was clean and tidy, and all food was prepared quickly. The service is what made this place stand out, all the staff were on hand to help, spoke great english, and were very friendly! Always smiling... More

Food was better than average. It seems hard to find good food in Dalat. I ordered a ginger chicken dish with rice and it was good. Also had a chocolate shake which was nice and rich. Staff were very attentive.

What makes this place so great really all boils down to the staff. One of the friendliest and most helpful bunch of people I've met in Vietnam so far. Excellent service and food as well! If you're in Dalat you can't pass this place up!

This restaurant is one of my favourites in Vietnam. The food is really delicious, definitely try the spring rolls (comes with a yummy dark sauce) and the chicken curry. The fried ice cream is the best dessert I ever had. Besides the excellent food, this restaurant has a great atmosphere and is located very centrally. The staff and the owner... More
