We went here with another couple and all ordered lots of different things, all just beautiful! My favourite so far, Vietnam Pancake! But we will be going back for more food. Staff couldn't do enough for us, so friendly!

Did the cooking class here which was great fun. We were taken to the market along the street to buy the ingredients and then took a boat trip back down to the restaurant where we were taught to cook 3 different traditional recipes. This was great fun and then you get to eat them when you finished. All the money... More

We stumbled onto the restaurant and were very impressed. There was way too much food for us! And the fact that the profit goes to help underprivileged made us feel good

We ate here on 2 occasions. We only had lunch, we were looking for something light like a sandwich. The meals were very nice. It was very hot and the girls made us very refreshing lemon juices with ice. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

Did a cooking class here, was very fun. Went to the local parket for fresh ingredients, then went on a boat on the river. Cooked 3 different meals. It was fun and yummy and we got to take the receipes. Profits go to charity for disadvantaged children.

The food was simple, traditional and good value. The cooking class is excellent value. $20USD per person for tour of the markets, back by boat, cooking and eating of 3 dishes. I now know how to cook Pho, Na Noi spring rolls and Chicken in claypot with Ginger. YUM!!

We stayed close to White Lotus so popped in for lunchtime snacks of fresh spring rolls, fried spring rolls and green papaya salad, all of which we're excellent quality and value for money. We decided to treat our friends for dinner and the 4 main course dishes were disappointing. There was hardly any chicken, fish, prawn or beef in each... More

I had the squid which was tasty and fresh.Thuy ( cheeky monkey) was attentive and friendly. We also had a chat with the owner and talked about the charity that... More
