First, staff is unable to speak English. Second, the staff is not very welcoming. The dishes we ordered did not taste good, they tasted like soap, so we did not finish and went to a different place. After all the nice experiences in Vietnam, this...More

Has a good variety of local food and is conveniently located. Price is somewhat above average but could not falter as it has a decent portion size

We found this restaurant to be a hidden gem. Wide ranging menu to satisfy all types of palates. Service was acceptable and the ambiance was great. Highly recommended.

Came here with family because some people wanted something a little more upscale. This food was reheated, of questionable quality, and not at all worth the price. There are much better spots for food at much lower price points.

Such a lovely restaurant. The architecture is predominantly oriental with a touch of the colonial but the food is true local. Excellent quality food with a great ambience.

Yes, this is a "tourist" restaurant, but a pretty good tourist restaurant. There is large menu choice and the food is prepared at numerous "stations" around the many tables downstairs. There is also an upstairs and the whole place is open to the air. I...More

Tourists likes to eat fresh vegetable, pork menu and soup. Cheap & delicious vietnamese food of this restaurant will make them happy. Food is not spicy for foreigners. This restaurant is decorated in vietnamese & chinese atmosphere. Staffs are helpful.

In terms of finding it , you should have no problem. All taxi drivers know where it is. The restaurant has menu so you can order without leaving your seat. But the food really is so so, and tourist prices are charged there.
