“We kept going back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Little Black Duck was our favorite restaurant in all Vietnam. As a family of five adults everyone love it. We ate there several times and tried different meals each time. Everything we ordered was excellent. The owner was delightful and spoke English well.

“Love their fried rice!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We chanced upon this cute little diner on our way to Dong Xuan market and it was a very pleasant surprise. We took the risk not knowing the reviews but we saw the TA logo and just went with it.

Thankfully, the food was good and the service even better. I ordered the duck fried rice but was served the plain fried rice. Unaware, I had a few spoonfuls and the rice was really yummy. I was wondering where was the duck hidden but before I knew it the staff informed me that they had my order wrong and promptly replaced my dish.

Two thumbs up!

Of course, the fried rice is even better with the duck. ;)

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

After going through TA to find just the right place, settled on LBD. We were happy to discover it is just as advertised - cute little place in a good but tucked away location, with great food at good prices. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the building itself and the atmosphere are nice, but made a little difficult by the fact that the restaurant is split over two levels, with a very small dining area upstairs (where we sat). I really liked the music though! The choice was by the owner, who obviously took pride in her restaurant. The service was prompt and efficient, and we enjoyed our meal.

“A great place for good decent food at good price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Went for diner with a friend, the staff speak very good english and welcomed us warmly. The place is decent and clean. We went to the first floor, which was almost empty. After ordering the food arrived fast, the portions good. We had braised duck, beef dish and nems. The experience was good and would recommend it.
