Quite far, pricey compared to other "chao long-ans" in Puerto, serving time is kinda long, but all that doesnt matter anymore once food is served and consumed. Best tasting vietnamese food in Puerto!

The owner is half vietnamese (from Palawena and Vietnamese origin) and is very accommodating specially in giving choices as to what the restaurant offers.From home made "french bread" to "Vietnamese coffee". This restaurant offers the "best among the bests" vietnamese noodles which the locals named "chow lung" in Puerto Princesa City.

Honest to goodness good tasting beef noodle dish, spring roll in rice wrapper and french bread. The noodles are served with only regular spice, then the condiment tray is brought to you for you to customize how much spice to add. Drip Coffee was out of this world.

We ordered the vietnamese chicken and beef noodle soup which had a very simple clear soup which for me added to its appeal. Also ordered their yummy fresh and fried spring rolls which would rival (and beat) the ones available in Metro Manila. And have i mentioned the freshly made garlic bread? It was just sooo good.

I was so surprised that for a cheap price, their Beef Stew (P80) and French Bread with Chicken (P70) didn't taste cheap, in fact, they're awesome and one of the things which shouldn't be missed when in Puerto Princesa.

All the dishes we had here where nicely cooked and tasty. After spending a month in Vietnam prior, i wouldnt go as far to say its just like what you get in Vietnam. Still, its an okay place to go it.

It is past the airport on left. Take note of the closing day. It seems highly rated and I wanted to find out for myself. I ordered prawn noodle soup and garlic bread. When it arrived I had problems locating the prawns, there were only 2 tiny ones, but the fish cost a lot more than the pork or beef... More

First to begin with is that i'm a true vietnamese tourist. So it makes sense for me to try out a vietnamese restaurant in this remote place. However the cusine is nothing like vietnamese food.
