Good simple Vietnamese Food

During the time of the Boat People leaving Viet Nam there was a refuge camp near Puerto. A few Vietnamese ended up staying in the area. I would recommend this restaurant. Good spring rolls and yummy lemongrass. Visit it every TIME I am in Puerto..

I vist this place frequently! Bit of a drive from down town puerto but it is well worth it. About 20 minutes or so. I strongly recommend the Fresh Vegetarian Lumpia... oh man I get it everytime! Also the fresh vegetarian pancit is awesome too. Staff are friendly, restaurant is nothing fancy and the value for money is very good.

The place could use some sprucing up, but don't sweat it because the food, servings, and service are fantastic!!! The pho is a little on the sweet side, but could easily be balanced out with the basil, lime, and condiments. Spring rolls were nice and crisp but not too oily... Some of the best bread I've had ever! And just...... More

A wonderful quiet location to enjoy fantastic flavours and delicious homemade bread. I cannot describe the mix of spices the staff use but I have written about it and it impressed me to no end.

Being located relatively far far away from the city center, surrounded by the abandoned houses of former Vietnamese refugees, this seemingly run down looking restaurant hides quite a few surprises. The food is very much authentic. The prices quite reasonable. The ambiance is akin to being in a rural province. Try their may selections of noodles paired with a bhan... More

This was an interesting restaurant because it was in front of a Vietnamese refugee village. The village seemed that it once had many families living there but I could not see anyone living there because the homes were so run down. I did not bother to ask otherwise. The restaurant was indoors but was screened in from the outdoors. While... More

Being isolated from the restaurants in the center, Viet Ville may seem to be a stretch of your Puerto Princesa stay. But just because it offers Vietnamese cuisine is enough reason why you should pay the place a visit. We had the chance to go there on an off-peak time so it wasn't crowded and the atmosphere was so serene.... More

Ordered their famous chaolong but was disappointed because it was not hot... it was luke warm. The chili sauce also has a fly in its container which we called their attention to. They replaced it immediately. They have this pork roast sandwich which tasted so good. The only good thing that we ordered.

Perhaps the biggest legacy of the Vietnamese boat-people who came to Palawan during the Viet Nam war in the 1970s is the Vietnamese Village. Even when majority of the Vietnamese families already left Palawan, the imprint of good 'ol Vietnamese cuisine still lingers in the village's restaurant.
