Meals are very reasonably priced and the food is good. One of our four dishes got forgotten about. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Really enjoyed the sweet potato shrimp fritters.

We had the most delicious bbq here! They have multiple skewers for only 10.000 vnd each and everything was delicious and fresh. From shells and ostrich to veggies as okra and mushrooms/zucchini (with bacon). The employees are also very friendly!
