Please accept our apologies for what was obviously a disappointing meal for you. In regard to the local beef, it is generally regarded as being quite varaible in quality and frequently sinewy. Our new menu, due to be released during the next few days, clearly advises this and suggests that Australian beef would be a better option. Your waitress should... More

This restaurant makes an very good Vietnamese food and all theirs benefices are for a non profit organization to help the poor peoples in Indochina, they do a great work so it makes the food even taste better, but the food is one of the best we had.

Roadside small restaurant with good service and delicious food with large portions.The staff do tend to hover over you but this seems to be standard practise in small Vietnamese restaurants.

In regard to the staff hovering, I do apologise and in fact accept responsibility for that. Quite recently the exact opposite had started to creep into the work practice of some of the staff and, as a consequence... More

Food is really nice, generous portions, not pricey at all. The service is nice and attentive: Trang and Lanh, are two sweet and talkative waitresses, they also speak a quite a good English so you can ask them about the city. All the profit from this place go to "Project Indochina", so why not enjoying good food, in a relaxing... More

We began the tour with a very informed tour of the local markets with Giang, the wonderful host. She showed us around and explained many of the local fruits and delicassies. Then we went back to the cooking school and made some amazing traditional Vietnamese food which we had previously chosen off an extensive list. The premises was extremely clean... More

If you’re a connoisseur of hot cuisine, as I am, listen up! Look, I'm Australian: nothing wrong with that. And I'm not just some oik from a Melbourne suburb……..I've been around. London, Bali, Alice Springs, you name it. Nor, as a globe-trotter, do I eschew the native food. I've enjoyed a pork pie at Harrods (best served cold, the lard... More
