Not the best place in town , but typical for small hunger , backpackers, budget seekers .. Most dishes Under $5 !! I have read complaints about the quality , but I must say what I ordered was simple but very tasty and the plates were full . While there is nothing Worth being looked at Inside... read more

Convenient location but the dishes were just ok. Vegetables looked a bit old and not the usual fresh and generous servings you get in Vietnam. Mains were just ok and smallish in portions. expensive for what you get and not good value in comparison to what you could get if you walked a bit further out of the tourist block.... More

Ate here as a group meal on our Exodus Vietnam Adventures trip. Food was OK but probably the poorest meal we had during our trip - this is because most of the food we ate was really delicious. Average price for food about $15 per person. I would try another restaurant before going back here.

The place where the locals eat always means fresh delicious food. A very kind family run this restaurant and cannot do enough to help you. The venue is average, however the... More

I... More

I'm afraid to say that this restaurant is a BIG SCAM!!! I came to this restaurant with 5 people and ordered some dishes. The food was just over horrible, but since there were five people, the restaurant provided more food and raised the charge without telling us! When I saw the bill, I was confused and a little mad that... More

The foods have way too much MSG. Not thing special. We have five people and order six dishes. They ask if we order for five people and I wonder why they ask us that question. It's obvious that there are five of us. When they present the check. They charged every dish 50% more. When I question them, they stated... More
