Delicious vegetarian Vietnamese food - the rice noodle soup was amazing and so filling. Lovely staff. Don't be confused by the sign in the photos with 'Vietnamese Aroma' - this is not the place!

It is a small restaurant in the backpacker quarter. I liked all the food extremely and the service is excellent. A good place when you want to eat vegetarian. And it is also not expensive.

After some hit and miss dining in HCMC, I was very happy to find this cute family restaurant. It's off an alley so its a bit quieter and fun to sit in front and people watch. We only ordered off the vietnamese part of the vegetarian menu but all dishes were very good and inexpensive. Beer was cheap as well,... More

Lovely and friendly staff, one girl spoke english very well. The menu has a lot of choices from vietnam/thai influences, lots of salads and veg combinations, lovely spring rolls. The menu also has meat choices! Clean and comfortable setting, with very low prices, only one side alley over from 'mini hotel alley'

In an area of pretty mixed eateries, this is wonderful! Great veggie options, we only had the Vietnamese dishes, but all were superb and very friendly staff. Very affordable, cheap beer too. If you are new to Vietnamese food, this would be a good place to start as the staff are very happy to explain various dishes.
