We visited it as it was recommended by Lonely Planet. My outdated copy rated it as $, but it is no longer so now that it has a new management. Nine of us had the lunch buffet. The local students in our group enjoyed the bbq prawns, ribs, squid, oysters and snails. It was an opportunity for us visitors to sample local Vietnamese cuisine such as steamed rice crepe and bun cha. There were other hot dishes but they were ordinary. An American tour group showed up and there was insufficient items on the dessert and fruit table. In fact, you don't miss anything if you didn't get to eat them. The restaurant has great ambience, but the food is nothing to write home about.

Ok this is a buffet. You can't possibly expect more out of a buffet.
2 persons are preparing some food on fells when you request them to.
Free flow of wine but the water is chargeable.
We recommend it as it is a balance with quan an ngon, less crowded, even romantic, quiet and nice desserts ;-)

We had dinner at Brother's Cafe with some friends and have enjoyed it very much. The atmoshpere and decoration style is lovely. The buffet was great value for monney. Free flow of beverage was included. Staff was friendly, smiling and helpful. Our children enjoyed the buffet as well, especially also the choice of desserts. We think this is a great place to enjoy Vietnamese food in a quiet and relaxing surrounding.
