We have known Kim for many years, as we go to Phou Quoc in the winter from Canada. She has cooked at several restaurants there and her cooking was always top notch. Now she owns her own restaurant and it is perfect. My wife is a Chef and we operate a B&B so we do know something about service and... More

I was staying in Bo resort but since I am traveling alone I can't afford to spend so much money on food so I found this restaurant just a 10mins stroll from the resort. Ms Kiem was willing to bring me to the Beachclub resort on Long Island with her family's motorbike. She is so friendly, the food is really... More

We found this place on our motorbike ride from a local's tip in town. This was one of, if not the best meals we had during our 3 weeks in Vietnam. The food is so fresh and flavorful, you can tell she really knows what she's doing. I had the sweet and sour chicken which was surprisingly light and much... More

Family run restaurant that serves up authentic Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices. As with most family operated enterprises, they do lack some service skills, but I don't mind that.

Because of the good high score,we go to there.But it is disappointed,the cost is not very cheap,and the food is not very delicious!Just soso. we order a beef hot pot,the beef is too tough!And fish is too salty,I think it should not happen. The owner's English is very good! If you don't near here,not worth to .

The food was great for the price but I wouldn't give it 5 star. We went on a mission from our hotel to find this and was a little disappointed as I wanted a nicer setting for dinner, the people were lovely though and worth a lunch visit maybe not a destination place for a meal

Came across this place because our hotel (Eco Beach Resort) was very close by. Hidden in the jungle. Does not seem too inviting at first but food is very tasty. Great for local cuisine. Cheap. Must try the banana pancakes.

I lived four and a half years on Phu Quoc island. Sakura restaurant is definitely THE best place to get dinner or lunch. A little bit far away from Duong Dong (on the road to Cua Can) but really worthy. Food is good, generously served and cheap. I do recommend it without any hesitation. I never got disappointed.
