Fast and relatively inexpensive food in the backpacker area. We ordered a couple of dishes but we particularly enjoyed the fried spring rolls. There are a couple of tables outside but we noticed the customers sitting there were frequently approached by street vendors. So sit...More

This place was really clean and right in the heart of the backpacker area so if you grab a seat outside there's so much going on around to look at! This cafe offered lots of vegetarian options which I do struggle with particularly through Asia....More

English menu with a wide variety of options, including for vegetarians. Not the cheapest in this area but ticked all the right boxes for a late lunch after arriving from Cambodia.

Ate here on two occasions and was very impressed. Very good prices compared to everything else on the strip. Excellent authentic food. Great service, family owned. Recommend this restaurant for sure!

Great local food!! Not expensive. We went here 3 times during our trip. One of the best restaurants in the street. Staff is also very friendly.
