“Very nice western viet restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I say western viet because they had a very varied menu with things like spaghetti bolognese and burgers, but we went for the viet food. I had a chicken curry that was excellent, full of potatoes and carrots and flavoured with lemongrass, mmmm...

Drinks a little pricey as mentioned above but on the whole decent value...

“Just Ok _ Maybe we struck a bad night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Average food, slow service, with only one night in Dalat nothing to compare it to locally, but this place was pretty ordinary.
You can put up with a bit tardy service and music playing the same song over and over again if the food was Ok.
Unfortunately the foods not good at all.
Give others a go, I followed the Tripadvisor rating and it was wrong!

“Very dissapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

What can I say, terrible service, terrible food. Apparently they were very busy, yes every table downstairs was taken up but most only had 2 people at them. They did go out of there way to pull 2 tables together in the upstairs room but then promptly forgot about us, no menus, no drinks. We were on the point of walking out when the waitress appeared and did apologize for forgetting us. It didn't get better, the food was terrible. We actually wondered if we had the right restaurant (couldn't find it on Tang Bat Ho st the one we found was on Truong Cong Dinh st) as we had chosen this place after reading some good reviews for it.

“Great combination of western comfort food and tasty Vietnamese treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We sat outside in the lovely street. We had the springroll starters and Vietnamese stirfry mains. Can recommend both as being very tasty. The pricing was good value for a sit down venue.

The menu also has a selection of Western food.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant after the Lonely Planet recommendation, but didn't expect much because the Dalat eating scene in general seems below average at best.

We ordered nachos with chicken as a starter and got fried potatoes with chicken and ketchup.

For main course I ordered a Cajun chicken salad and got chicken, garlic bread and French fries - apparently the waiter had understood my "without coriander" as though I didn't like salad. They took it back and I got the same, but with lettuce with a bit of coriander, back.

All in all a really bad experience.
