“Good for one visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

They serve "vietnamese" food but seems like they scrimped on the ingredients. Nothing beats using the right ingredients and pricing it right. there are other choices.

“Love eating Vietnamese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Puerto Princesa City was the adopted home of Vietnamese refugees in the 80"s ; some married Filipinos and lived in the Philippines for good. I liked this Vietnamese restaurant because they made use of locally grown herbs and spices. The authentic Vietnamese cuisine is prepared very well and in a healthy way with lots of local vegetables. The price of the food is not so high and your orders are filling enough to be shared with someone. I highly recommend this restaurant to local and foreign tourists to Puerto Princesa.

Vietnamese refugees arrived in Puerto years ago. One of their great contributions is this great little, charming restaurant.

“Vietnamese food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I loved the food en toto. We were 22 hungry people in all, and the waiters and waitresses got a few ordered dishes mixed-up. But the taste is exotic and authentic. Try it, the trip to the place is worth it. Dinner time would be best, but there may be a que.
