We stopped by for lunch & ordered noodle soup, which is a core Vietnamese dish. Stock was bland, no bean sprouts or mint. Ended up adding soy & chilli sauce in order to give the dish some flavour. For a restaurant that advertises "real Vietnamese food", we were very disappointed.

Nice set menu selection, lovely soups, friendly staff. Nice ambience, lovely place for a date night with your partner. Just don't order coffee, it wasn't nice. The complimentary tea was a nice touch considering that restaurants don't often do that on the contrary to local Vietnamese restaurants. Good location.

This restaurant was always bustling when we walked past so we decided to give it a try- surely so many people can't be wrong! The dishes were packed with flavour and piping hot. Service was not overtly friendly but very efficient- they were really busy. The restroom was one of the cleanest I've used in the restaurants along this road!

Went here for lunch once as it was opposite our hostel. I had fried noddles with beef which was dripping in oil. It tasted okay and The portion size was good but overall an average meal.

TA reviews looked good, so we went in, took a seat, ordered food and drinks, and then asked to use the restroom. Waitress said "Sorry, no have". So we got up, cancelled our order, and left. Maybe they have good food and good service, but if no rest room, then I'll go elsewhere.

We were really impressed with the food here; we both opted for set menu number 2 (100,000vnd and non-vegetarian) and it was amazing! We had so much lovely food for such great value! I'd really recommend this place.

I had dinner here alone cause i traveled alone to Sapa. Our hotel sent me here and I did call some Vietnamese food from them. All food was nice and not expensive, as well as the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. The male staff is very polite and know how to serve well.

It's a little warn down, but the food was delicious! I had the Sautéed Chicken with Cashew Nuts (which came with rice) and the Tomato Soup. The Tomato Soup was really good - I highly recommend it! Also had a Cappuccino, which was a bit more like a Mocha because they added a drizzle of chocolate, but was happy with... More

The food was tasteless, pancakes still raw. In a word, awful 😟 There are much better options in the area. Friendly staff though
