Fantastic food, fantastic atmosphere!

Huff and puff up 6 flights of stairs with a 2 year old is worth every step. The servings are quite small, but that's even better because it means we can sample more dishes. Every dish we ordered was delicate and delicious.

Don't trust the location on the apple/google map though, it's WRONG! Ask locals for directions.

We went to this cute little restaurant on our last day in Vietnam. My other half was definitely skeptical after walking up 5 flights of stairs but I had a feeling it would be worth it. The menu changes daily and had a fascinating choice. We had a couple of starters, both were great, pork mince stuffed into Lemon Grass and prawns on a kind of marrow, followed by a chicken and pork dish, both were great, lots of vibrant flavours. We had a very cooling lemongrass and lime tea each, followed by ginger green tea and two deserts. The deserts were very unusual to us, I loved the black bean, kind of iced soup. We definitely recommend this restaurant and great value for money!!

If you want to go native, this is the place for you. To find it, you have to go into an alley, then walk up four flights of stairs (reading the funny quips about the lift is coming)! We had recommended dishes, and were not disappointed! We did not however try the snake head, But I do understand it is a fine delicacy, Prices are very cheap and the food is beyond all you would expect. Well worth a try.

After the A O show, we went to this restaurant by my friend recommend, the restaurant location at old apartment on Pasteur street. climbed up 4 floor, we quite tired and hungry. I'm so surprise about this place, so peaceful and nature. We love all kind of food we at. its very delicious and not expensive once.
