We decided to came in because the place was full of locals. Disappointment. Grilled shrimps were tasteless, squid in the vegetables tasteless as well. Vegetables were out of any standard. White wine is served hot. Only beef was good. Hopeless.

Was recommended and brought there, otherwise difficult to find. Many locals patronised. We tried the grilled squid and chicken. Squid was excellent but chicken just average. However, was told this is one of the better local restaurant in Old Town. Try it!

I visited this restaurant after reading the reviews as I simply love the way that seafood is spiced and flavoured in authentic Vietnamese cuisine. What I ended up with on my plate was actually a world away from what I'd read in the reviews. As...More

A hard to find restaurant that is very much frequented by the locals. The food is very good but be advised the setting is well, local. Great value.

The fact that it was mainly locals eating there was a good indication that it was authentic Vietnamese food. The fish and shellfish were live in tanks and cooked to order. We had fresh crab hot pot which was delicious but a bit of a...More
