“The source for mashed potatoes...and a million other things”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Expats know where to get good food, and Phuong Nam is justifiably popular. Excellent mashed potatoes, creatively blended with carrot and spring onion, a whole pile of them, cheap. grilled pork chops, excellent and creative salads, with pomelo and shrimp, or mango and shrimp, or four perfectly ripe avocado halved, filled with shrimp. So far, everything we've tried on the menu has been great.

“Very extensive menu - non touristy”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Authentic restaurant with a great menu. Make sure you go to the right restaurant as the numbering in the road is a bit odd and other restaurants seem to have the same number, but it is clearly signed. Locals got talking to us about Vietnamese politics and it seemed like a sociable place to eat. Mango seafood salad was tasty.

“Excellent Prices, Excellent Meals”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

For 35000dong (1.5Usd), you get yourself an excellent, lovingly-cooked meal. Portions are HUGE! Go with a group so u guys can try a variety of dishes :)

I love the mango salad with beef and grapefruit salad with chicken. Both were excellent. The stir-fried vegetables was a winner too.

5 people, 4 entrees, 2 beers, 1 fruit shake and 1 tea (2000dong?!!! Cheap and good!) came up to 209000dong (that's about 10usd). I felt it was TOTALLY worth it :)

Come here! The host was so friendly too and he joked with us while we were there.

Downside: Fruit shake was waaaayyyy too sweet. Just go for their water/tea:)
