We wanted some traditional food and this little place didnt disappoint. Often we were the only ones in however that wasn't an issue. The service was excellent, food was fresh and good portions. Alice loved the noodles. Price was excellent. Loved it!

We went here as it was close to where we are staying & looked welcoming from the street. I had sweet & sour pork, the pork was overcooked & the rest of the dish was just a few pieces of pineapple & some other veges. My partner had the 5 spice squid as we had read on here that it... More

We ordered spring rolls, chicken with tamarind and garlic and garlic prawns. All arrived together, fairly quickly after ordering. We could not tell the vegetarian spring rolls from those with meat. Both had the same bland flavour and appearance. One of the garlic prawns was not sufficiently cooked. The generous portion of chicken was overcooked, topped by a bit of... More

....to eat in this (or any) part of Mui Ne/Ham Tien. Superb family run restaurant, great food, terrific service and all at an amazing price. Ate there twice and everything was just what we'd expect from authentic Vietnamese fare - tasty, spicy (when required) and lots of it. With this and a couple of other really excellent restaurants on the... More

To be fair, we didn't eat much the one time we visited this restaurant, but the spring rolls were really quite good, and that's worth mentioning :) Staff were friendly, and the beer was cold and cheap. All good!

Went here at the suggestion of our hotel. We were disappointed. The meat spring rolls had no flavour at all, so 8 of a dozen went to waste. My wife had pho bo which also lacked major flavour. Terrible compared to some of the pho we had in Hanoi and Da Nang. I had lemongrass chicken which was quite good... More

Seemed highly rated on trip advisor so gave it a chance. Huge disappointment, menu needed pictures because an order of chicken wings was received with a plate with 1 giant chicken wing. The food and flavours were uninspired, simple in a bad way, and not authentic and I'm Vietnamese myself. Why did people talk this place up for?
