Amazing vegetarian food!

We were only in Dalat for a few days, but visited twice and loved everything we had. The pyramid rice dumpling (Banh Gio) was so good, I was thinking about it for days before finally going back. The Thai sour soup is amazing as well. Some of the beat veggie fare I've had!

This is a little slice of veggie heaven! There is so much great food to choose from...and it is very reasonably priced. Definitely up there with the best veggie places I've eaten!

excellent, fresh and delicious vegetarian food. we went there twice in 2 days - it would have been 3 times but they were closed between 2-4pm when we went! I am still thinking about the taste. the place is reasonably clean, but service was inconsistent, sometimes you would get what you asked for quickly, but sometimes you would have to... More

We have been there yesterday and had both a vegetarian noodle soup and springrolls. In the soup you find a kind of fake meat made from tofu i think which comes really close to real meat in tast, optic and texture. The soup comes also with a lot herbs and green stuff at side. We had free tea and the... More

Absolutely delicious food and a must try when in Dalat. I would recommend it to all the carnivores as well...u will love the food!!! We had Thai hot pot.. A bit spicy with a tangy tinge..recommend. Fantastic portion size...small was more than enough for two of us.

Stumbled upon this on the way to our hotel in da lat and just knew I had to try it! There is a review saying that the staff is unfriendly. My experience was great, I had cut up my feet pretty badly from walking a long way in new flip flops and they called me a taxi and gave me... More

Hoa Sen offers absolutely delicious vegetarian food and a great variety of dishes! After coming here the first time and trying their braised mushrooms, we couldn't keep ourselves away from coming back. They have a lot of tofu dishes shaped as non-vegetarian food, such as meat or shrimp. While I generally don't consider it necessary (it's not like meat is... More

For $8, we got vegetarian prawns in tamarind sauce, stir fried gluten, 'pork belly' and a salad - they also provided rice and rice crackers, which we couldn't fit in- had to roll out of there! Good service for Vietnam, great food, great value, will definitely be back!

Good food, small portions though. Very unattentive staff, had to wait very long before even get the opportunity to ask for the bill. The restaurant is very noisy and not what I would consider a good dining environment. If it wasn't for the food, I'd give much lower rating.

The food here is great and amazing value for money, as well as giving a ton of options. I absolutely loved eating here. Unfortunately the staff are unfriendly and unhelpful. The lady at the front desk is friendly but I constantly had to call people to take my order, ask for help or the bill. They never looked around to... More
