Fantastic

Just a fantastic little place hidden in the basement of the sannomiya shopping center. Very friendly environment, reasonably priced and serves true Vietnamese food. Portions are rather small but that's the case in most restaurants in Japan. Will definitely come back again.

Cheap and good eats. Had the quick lunch set meal for 700 yen. Pho and salad roll. Pho was beefy and tasty. This is NOT fine dining. This is a quick hit of tasty pho and go type of restaurant. I will be returning soon.

Very good Vietnamese restaurant in central Kobe. I sometimes visit this cheerful restaurant at lunch time. The staff are all very friendly and kind and the food is delicious. This is a rare place that serves "banh cuong" (steamed spring roll) in Japan, which I highly recommend. It's included in the lunch menu of "Healthy Set" (ヘルシーセット). Other foods are... More

Thang Cafe is one of our favorite places we haunted on a weekly basis. The food was always good and Mr Thang smiling and handsome - the perfect host who greeted you as an old friend. In Kobe the quality of food is just stunning and Thang Cafe is worth a visit.

If you are looking for authenic Vietnamese food in the Kobe area, this must be the place. Located in the basement of San Plaza building in Sanomiya, it offers a lively atmosphere that seems to take you to a different world than Japan. Some staff don't speak much Japanese, so being an English speaker helps.
