Delicious food, great service and they even showed me how to eat it. Nice lemongrass juice. Very popular restaurant with locals. Very reasonable prices.

What is better than good food at a good price AND air conditioning in the middle of summer? I am sure the list is short for anyone. Let me first say that I am not Vietnamese nor have I been to Vietnam but in the US I have eaten at many Vietnamese restaurants and this one has many of the same dishes - beef or pork noodle soup (Pho), fresh spring rolls (goi cuon) and many others. Although the items have the same names, there is a difference in the way the food is prepared here. In my mind, this is as close to authentic as you can get outside of a trip to Vietnam.

My Vietnamese Food (MVF) is sandwiched between Chiang Mai University main gate and Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna (RMUTL) main gate, just south of the RMUTL main gate in a series of townhouse style businesses. MVF is in the second set as you head south on Hauy Kaew Road from RMUTL. Just up north of MVF is the zoo and a few kilometers further is Doi Suthep, so this is a convenient stop as you head down (or up) the hill.

I visited MVF over 3 days (working at RMUTL) and didn't have a bad thing to eat. There are a variety of booths and tables to sit at as well as upstairs seating. Most items are priced at 60-120 baht ($2-$4US). If you are by yourself you may be taking food home if you order in the 110-120 baht range. All dishes come with a veritable "herb garden in a bowl", basil, stinkweed, mint and a few types of lettuce, either as side veggies to eat or to be put in your meal. There is a house desert that is free - lod chong - sweet rice noodles in coconut milk.

The service is good. I never waited too long for dishes to arrive or to place an order.

On most days school is in session, MVF is full by noon. They open at 11am but I went one day just before and sat down with no problems. I am not sure what time they close.

I conducted the "bathroom check" myself and am happy to report clean Western-style toilets with paper and sinks with soap and paper towels.

All taken this restaurant is worthy of repeat visits.

From the outside it looks like a cafeteria, but take a look inside and there are always lots of customers. There is a decent choice on the menu and service is fast unless they are really busy. We have been several times and the food is good, and a bowl of fresh green salad accompanies all orders. Prices are good for the portion sizes.
