“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for lunch as it was only a couple of minutes walk from our hotel and we had seen it had good reviews on TA. It was busy despite being about 2:00pm, although it is a small place so fills up quickly.

We weren't acknowledged when we arrived so we chose a small table. We spent a while looking at the fairly small menu before going up to the counter to order. It is table service but service was slow. We wanted to order orange juice, feta salad and French fries but they didn't have any of these which was disappointing, especially when the menu is so small.

We ended up going with olives with ciabatta and chicken in pita. The olives were cheap and artificial tasting, and the addition of raw garlic did nothing to help them. The warm ciabatta bread was lovely though. We asked for olive oil to dip the bread into but the oil was tasteless. Our kebabs arrived quickly and were delicious. Packed with flavour and the garlicky sauce was great.

This food and 3 drinks cost us 163000 dong (about $8) which is great value but overall the lack of availability on some of the menu items was disappointing. Go here for the kebabs but avoid the olives and don't set your heart on the feta!

“Chicken at it's best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We dined here three times during our five night stay in Mui Ne as the food really is scrumptious, I don't know what it is that they do to their chicken but I believe it is the best I have ever tasted.
Gorgeous salads too and excellent value, 60,000 for a large kebab, Smashing!
We are only giving it four stars as the service is pretty shoddy. They are always full and need more girls on the floor. You have to seat yourself and get your own menu (Russia menus also available!) and couple of times we cleared our own table. Accept it though as their food is smashing!! You won't be disappointed.

“Tasty food at great prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

We've just eaten here on TA recommendations and we weren't disappointed. We had hummus and a small kebab each and all very tasty.

“Best fast food in Mui Ne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The place is small. But it is open from 8 am, has the best lemon juice in town, great tomato mozzarella salad, tasty original tsatziki.
Menu is small, perfect for a snack.

“Hits the spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

As pretty much everyone else has said, the food here was great. Mui Ne is somewhat starved for good food options and we were pretty surprised to see this kind of cuisine here, but so very glad we did! It was fresh, tasty and at a great price. We ate here a couple of times during our time in Mui Ne and I think my partner would have eaten here a lot more had I let him. Go and enjoy!
