Take a taxi and visit this little restaurant by the river. The staff is friendly and nice. The chef is preparing the best duck! Or the prawns served in a coconutshell.. Delicious.. They try to do the best for you, all of them! Thank you, the best choice of a restaurant isn't always found in the center of a town.

We ate at this restaurant about 6 evenings. We tried the char grilled fish, white rose, spring roll speciality, duck, fried rice, morning glory, and much more. It was all delicious. The staff are lovely. The service is good. The puppies are very cute and entertaining. I can see why some people catch a taxi to try the restaurant. We... More

It was actually one of the puppies that made us pay attention to the sign of the restaurant, and one quick TA check later, we knew that we had to try this place, and we are very happy we did. While the setting is a bit tired / old (I feared my chair would give up under my Westerner frame)... More

We ate here for lunch and we were unimpressed. The food was average, pizza pretty basic, however spring rolls were good. There were quite a few dogs hanging around our feet which made us feel uncomfortable. The service was good.

Really nice view of the river from the porch. The staff here are very friendly. The vietnamese food we ordered was really good. We had spring rolls and fried noodles with veg. Both were fantastic. However the pasta we ordered was not very good. The cook maybe needs to revise the tomato sauce recipe, it was similar in taste to... More

All meanings of f****n WOW. Their smoothies are a joke, haven't had a smoothie anywhere near that good yet in Vietnam. The fried spring rolls, the cassava salsa and the garlic prawns were all in their own right respectively the best spring roll, best salad and best seafood dishes I've had in Vietnam. Sadly I had an old Aussie tourist/cow... More

Quaint place with extremely friendly staff. Employees intrigued in where you are from and give suggestions as to where to go and what to visit. Went here more than three times in less than a week and the food consistently got better. Spring rolls are the best we have had and char grilled dishes were cooked wonderfully. All for a... More
