The Mandarin Cafe is an extraordinary place that offers great nourishment. We got the BLTs which were incredible. The eatery is a decent minimal joint. The staff was pleasant and benevolent. For special reward Mr. Cu, the proprietor, is a refined picture taker. You can examine some of his awesome photography.

This cafe/restaurant is a good visit anytime day of night. Mr Cu is so charming and all of the staff friendly. We had Set menu A as we were feeling lazy and wanted something tasty and easy. We were not disappointed. Having said that the menu was extensive so plenty of choice for all tastes. We thoroughly enjoyed looking through... More

Very good breakfast at a reasonable price. The service was great, the owner? showed us some wonderful prints of his photography after we ate. However, butter was an extra 10000vnd which is something to bare in mind, as it is usually free of charge elsewhere.

Read about this Lonely Planet and thought we would give it try. It's a busy place, which is always a good sign. The owner is a keen photographer who is more than happy to show you his albums of what are really good photos of life in Vietnam. He is also happy to sell a copy of any photo you... More

Good food, a little bit expensive but flavoursome. The staff were nice. I had the beef and broccoli, which was great, and french fries (craving, ya know?) which were good. Would eat here again.

The cafe is well known for it's rather eccentric but very friendly owner who is known locally for his photography, much of which is exhibited and for sale in his restaurant. Our local guide recommended it to us, being the closest to our hotel (the Imperial). The menu, while not being extensive, is quite adequate and the service was prompt... More

Were craving a proper cup of coffee without condensed milk, with just fresh milk. Nice, hot and good sized cup. Had yogurt coffee here which was also really great. The owner is very friendly, the staff is very nice and speak English. Photographs on the walls which the owner took - very beautiful. Heard good things about the food. Prices... More

We had here just a quick lunch yesterday but all the dishes was very delicious. The restaurant has a very calm and unique atmosphere and an own pet, an extremely fat dog who is very lovely and funny.
