“great food, amazing price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

This is not one restraunt but a series of family run tables and kitchens all housed together and under one thatched roof. This group was originally located on the river front further on from the markets but they did such a good trade and took business away from other restraunts that were paying licence fees, that the government moved them across the river. To find them, cross the river on the footbridge that is nearest the tiger. fish ect, lit up in the middle of the river. Once over the bridge turn left and walk about 150metres ( river is on your left). The road swings around to the right and as it does you will see this establishment. The night we were there we dined at Mr Ba's. They are trying hard to make ends meet since the forced move, not so much passing trade, so they take it in turns to host the customers, thereby all staying in business. It won't matter which table you sit at ,the food is unbelievable and so cheap. It's cooked fresh, right in front of you, in the open kitchens. Fresh beer is available too, at about 4000 dong per glass and if you havn't tried this wonderful stuff, do yourself a favour and have a go. Icy cold, it's exactly the right drink in the humidity ( or the rain or the cold or anytime really). Enjoy.
