Having read where to eat when in Da Lat my wife and I decided on this little place for diner after a 6 hour bus ride from Nha Trang and boy did we score big. After eating on the street, in restaurants and our on cooking after cooking class this was a nice surprise food, service and atmosphere worthy of a French bistro at home. We started with the Trong Dong special salad which was a green papaya salad with a twist. Next we had the roasted rabbit, grilled frog and spinach with garlic and a bottle of red Vang Dalat superior that we split. Followed by banana jam roll with tea and ice cream for desert. The food, presentation and service left the foodie in me wanting for nothing.

A French style restaurant with lots of interesting things on the menu. We had rabbit roasted with honey and some seriously delicious mashed potato. Nice Da Lat wine as well. Really good value for money.

We entered Trong Dong because it seemed like a small, cozy place to eat. We were greeted warmly and this friendly atmosphere made for a really nice dinner. The food was very tasty and I especially appreciated that we could ask questions about the various Vietnamese dishes (which we were not familiar with yet). We ordered the most delicious papaya salad as an appetizer, which they kindly prepared without meat for us. I also had Pho Chay, a vegetarian noodle soup with vegetables. It was one of the best meals I have eaten in Vietnam. Prices were reasonable, especially considering the high quality of the food. The service was extremely friendly, courteous and made this dinner a perfect experience.

A little cafe serving up super good lemon grass chicken, venison, fish and beef dishes and blander chicken soup and fried veggies. Atmosphere sketchy but service is great.

This is the best food we have had in Vietnam so far. The food was delicious and the owner and staff were delightful. We had a 6 course banquet, very reasonably priced and the quality of the food was top class. The meal was finished off with the yummiest home made yoghurt.
Highly Recommend this restaurant if you are in Dalat.
