Our hotel (Thien An) recommended this restaurant and we're so glad they did. We ate there 3 times in 2 days! Nice menu, lovely staff, reasonable prices, clean restaurant. The owner/manager recognized us from eating earlier in the day, and was very gracious and appreciative of our business.

Tip: Order ice cream for dessert. The coconut is especially good, and the presentation is first class!

Walked past this place on the way to our Hotel and decided to go in for dinner. So glad we did as the food and service were great. Started with the cold Vietnamese salad with prawns which were great and had the clay pot chicken curry with lemon grass which had so much flavour. Tried the local Dalat red wine which wasn't the best but had to be done when in Dalat. It was a good change from eating in markets and at street vendors. Would definitely recommend to other travellers.

Hello Dookie,
We are glad that you like your meals at our restaurant. It was great that you made a fine combination. Lotus stem salad (which is less popular but more local than its famous sister of shred papaya) was a great starter. I also like the lemongrass chicken curry (actually I like the lemongrass flavor more:). We have different types of Dalat wine, the best one (most people said) is the Gailac, the normal Dalat Red wine is a bit sweet to me because it has some mix of local strawberry, I guess you picked this one. Anyway, thank you very much for visiting our restaurant, and I hope to see you again.

Found this place after reading several reviews on trip advisor. It was perfect. The food was delicious, the service wonderful. It is non smoking, with a good variety of vegetarian dishes as well as Vietnamese and European ( of the steak and chip variety rather than spaghetti bologniase). We went looking for pasta but am glad we ended up eating Vietnamese. Best Vietnamese food since Hoi An.

This is a small but great place for good food and chilling with friends. The menu features western and Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices but great tastes, being served by English speaking waitresses of ethnics minority and nice manager.

This type of restaurants makes Da Lat a more cozy place to visit, stay more, love, and miss. I definitely come back for my next visit to the city.

If you're looking for a decent place to eat, this is very good. Staff is very very friendly, food is fresh and tasty. Menu is clearly arranged. Of course the place is clean as well. Deco is nicer than other vietnamese restaurants but a bit conservative. Worth a visit! Ask for the artichoke tea and fresh flan dessert (not vietnamese, but who cares...)
