“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

We ate here and the food was good, mostly a tourist spot though, not many locals. The shrimp paste on the sugar cane is very good and the fresh ginger tea.

“Service is northpole, food is southpole.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

After reading much good reviews here about the place, I decided to try it out.

My partner and I ordered a Thai hotpot and a salad dish for two persons. Pricing was reasonable it seemed.

The salad taste and amount was good.

When the hotpot arrived, the portion was only good enough for one person (for the price of two). And it tasted like pineapple juice. Too sour without any spiciness at all and little flavour. If they can't service Thai food, or anything resemble it, don't put it on the menu.

Even if they did it good, the portion is way off for the price. Their servive was top. I could get top service in clubs as well. But it's the food that counts.

Very diappointed meal leaving us half filled.

There's much restaurants in Dalat, for the service, tasty food with good portion, costing less the price here.

“Is the best in Dalat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

We went here based on recommendations from our hotel. She recommend 2, but we went to the other 1. This looks tiny from out side, but we love the environment inside, the manager is friendly and the food is amazingly nice!!! We'll definetly be back here if we come Dalat again. The price is good, the portion is just perfect!!.

“Ate there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Our group tour had lunch here one day, then two of us returned the next day on our own. The food is excellent, the service is very friendly and the staff is helpful in ordering taxis,etc. I loved the decor -- purses on the wall -- and they're for sale too!

Ate here a few times as the food and service were excellent. They often have tour groups who eat here, but the service was still very good in spite of their being busy.
