Very good pizza. Also Tofu salad was good but the pork screwers didn’t work for us (too chewy and weird tasting). Familiar comfort food and lovely atmosphere for western tourists and very helpful personnel. A lot of drinks available and interesting beers. Two cute house...cats are begging for treats (they got some).More

Our daughter visited here and said it was epic, so we arrived in Ninh Binh and tried it ourselves. We met LaLa who was the manager and she was awesome, with very good English. LaLa was training Hung, who was new and so embarrassed, but...tried really hard to talk in English. The venue is fantastic and the food really good, with lots of choice, the pizza is very good. Would recommend this place to all visitors, warm welcome, good food and fantastic location, what more do you want!More

Food gets served fast. Good spot for a quick meal. Don't have high expectations, as this is a Tourist spot.

Inside the front gate we found raised vege beds, playgrounds, bars, seating inside and out, a fireplace for a warm, comfy curl up on the sofa and blankets. Chookies has everything. Great friendly service too. Loved our pizza and chips for a hot kid-friendly meal...on a cold day. We came back the next day for some more comfort food and company and this time were treated to mulled wine on the house.More

Yummy food and fun relaxing atmosphere! Decidedly Australian campsite vibe. Pizza and brownies were delish.

Their hand cut chips (fries) are unbelievably good. As good as the chips back home at the fish and chip shops. Don’t normally leave reviews but doing it for this. Good quality pizzas too. Highly recommend if you need a change from Vietnamese food.

We were going to eat here but I really don't think they can justify their prices! We walked around the corner and found a lovely vegan restaurant with a delicious vegan burger for half the price!

We came here by chance as we were just walking by. They have very good vegetarian options. We ordered the veggie burger and the papaya salad and tropical spring rolls. All was very good. If you are looking for a break of Vietnamese food, this...is it. Prices are Ok for western food in comparison to other places and atmosphere was nice.More

We really enjoyied Chookie's hideaway. It has a bit of an island feel to it, far enough away from the road that you can barely hear the traffic, surrounded by nature with trees and plants planted throughout the restaurant. I had the falafel burger, shrimp...rolls and chocolate cake with a coffee. Food was all delicious, reasonably priced for western food, not much in the way of traditional foods so dont come here if you're looking for that. Staff very friendly and welcoming, lovely chilled atmosphere. Fairy lights everywhere, proper wood fires for the pizzas, and bean bags etc for lounging.More

Pizzas & Burgers were good, drinks were nice and the cakes were excellent (baked by one of sisters). Carrot cake, chocolate cake and lemon cheese cake.....all really good! Nice and relaxing ambience with great service to make our meal here both enjoyable and memorable.

We loved this place! I suppose we visited this restaurant 3-4 times on our two-day trip to Ninh Binh. Their stone-oven pizzas, burgers and sandwiches were amazing, probably the best pizzas we have had in Vietnam. Our favorite was the cookies & cream ice cream...they had. Great place and great service. Highly recommended, if you want to have western food for a change.More

The restaurant was great, we had pizza which was delicious. Great vibe, great music, and a lot of nomads/expats/travelers. This place is more expensive than most places, but still not expensive at all. Definitely recommended

Chookie's @ 17 Luong Van Tuy is now closed and moving to a new location near the Train Station. Chookie's in Tam Coc is still open.

Do apologize for that. Actually the restaurant is based on local business and by family business. So that somehow owner could have family reason caused closing time changed but it is not usual.
