“Very good but not cheap”
Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

We are travelling a a five, my husband, his parents and our daughter. We decided to have Indian after an afternoon at bia hoi (i recommend that!). It was weird to see beef on the menu but no other red meat except goat. The food was interesting. I think we ordered a bit much after drinking bia! We had 6 starters, 5 curries, 7 breads and a drink each and that cost just short of 1.3 million VND. If I was to recommend off the menu I would suggest you try the beef and pea curry and the potato starter. The location is interesting beside the lake and the taxi ride over made for good viewing!

“Nice location, quaint restaurant but average food”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Read the good reviews so decided to try this restaurant with my wife. Great friendly staff, lovely location overlooking the lake though the view is broken by the traffic on this narrow road. Tried 3 dishes which were disappointing - thought very edible they were not authentic Indian in taste. Overall a bit bland and revised versions of the real thing. Anyone writing reviews that this is good Indian food is mistaken. But it's all right for the untrained palate.

“Very nice indian food”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Very nice place on Truc Bach Lake. Take out or delivery also available. Reasonable prices and good food. Tastes like in India. Service sometimes not very smiley.

Fantastic Indian food. We eat a lot of it in my family and this was some of the best - and even some of the best food we had on our Vietnam trip (although we had a ton of good food). The atmosphere is great - so many different areas to sit in - we sat on a higher floor on the floor. They were quite accommodating for my two year old who kept getting up to dance to the Indian music (there was no one else eating in the room with us). If you want Indian, you can't go wrong with this place!

“a definite favourite”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I've no idea how many times i've eaten at/ordered from foodshop 45, at least weekly! This place is great, good quality Indian food at great prices and the restaurant has nice views looking out towards Truc Bac Lake. Service is always great, both the wait staff and the delivery guys.
