“Barely warm and uninteresting food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I tried the spicy chicken rice on someone's recommendation here. The chicken was barely warm, was half bones, and could barely be called spicy - it had a sauce that was somewhere between mild and tangy. Certainly not SPICY like Vietnamese food can be.

“OK for a Lunch Snack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The prices are cheap, and the food is tasty, but most of the chicken is on the bone, so you don’t get as much as first appears, but for $2, just buy anther if you aren’t full after the first. It’s moderately clean, and well located for people watching at the Sunday Market.
Probably better suited to a lunch snack than dinner.

“snack portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We had lunch and ordered Spicy Chicken Rice and Lemon Tea. The price was cheap at 6 MR for the meal and 2.80 for the drink. The taste was alright but the meal is really snack size. The chicken portion was very small, a leg cut into small slices with a helping of rice. It was almost more bone than meat. On the other hand at that price you can probably order 2 meals if you are hungry.
The service was fast and the place looks clean. It is not really a restaurant but a fast food place.

“A good place to taste Vietnamese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The food are good BUT the place is not air-conditioned.
You can even have customers smoking like it's their own house... how can you enjoy good food when you have some insensitive customers smoking?
