We were taken to a set lunch here arranged by our guide. The place looks lovely and were welcomed by some kimchi. The food was just great, the service is very friendly and knowledgeable and even the free wifi works perfectly. Highly recommended.

This place would be lovely daytime or night time. We love this sort of place, tucked away down an alley in a beautiful garden setting. It was really pretty when we came in the evening, lovely guitar music playing and the food was really nice....More

A lovely little retreat for lunch as the restaurant is in a covered garden setting with large fans so nice and cool. The service was very attentive and the food lovely.

Chris O
I read your response to my review. I find it sarcastic and rude, and I am shocked to see that a business can speak to it's customers in this way. The response seems to imply that this is not the first time I have visited and reviewed the restaurant; "you again Chris". I assure you that I and my "little Vietnamese girlfriend' have never been to your restaurant before. (We live in the south of Vietnam.) We stumbled on your restaurant by accident. The prices I am comparing are those which I am used to paying, and the opinion about the taste of the prawns was that of my girlfriend. Although I will now definitely tell people not to come to your restaurant, I want to know why you think it is appropriate to send a rude and sarcastic response to a customer who gave a truthful and objective opinion about your establishment.
