Quiet restaurant at the end of town, portion sizes were fair. Recommended dishes; grilled eggplant with spring onion, chicken and ginger clay pot and morning glory with garlic. Stuffed squid was a bit dry, still good flavours from the lemongrass though. Service was wonderful, proceeds go to support Indochina, helping impoverished Asian communities. Good food for a great cause!

We ordered chicken with lemongrass, stuffed squid, and beef and salad, along with asparagus soup. All were average, nothing special.

Your "review" is a very light on detail so I am unable to specifically respond constructively nor address any food quality issues that may be there. This sort of totally subjective unsupported review is pointless. It benefits no one and can do great harm to the business at whom it is directed. All I can say in our defence is... More

I signed up for the cooking class offered at this restaurant which was across the street from our hotel. Reasonable price and I was offered a nice variety of dishes to choose from to prepare. Since I was the only one signed up for that day, I got a private lesson! My charming instructor spoke passable, understandable English. We visited... More

Popped in here tonight for a late dinner. Service was fantastic, really friendly and efficient staff. I was recommended the Cao Lau and was not disappointed! The local specialty was delicious! Also great location on one of the quieter streets! Opposite our hotel - Ha An Hotel - for anyone arriving late and looking for fantastic food!

The food was wonderful and the service exceptional. It's also so satisfying to know the profits go towards those in need.

We went there and had a very nice dinner. The service was nice and food was good. Not the best we had in Vietnam but very good food at reasonable price.

We shared the Steamboat between two of us with seafood, vegetables, noodles and beef. Cooked at your table which was novel, it was fresh and very tasty. Very friendly and attentive service. Accepts credit cards. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.
