“Mediocre food and terrible service in a nice setting”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Went here based on the lonely planet review and was so very disappointed. Really wish I had read trip advisor first!! Very nice patio setting but that's the only good thing I have to say about the dining experience. Food was mediocre at best, thought it would be good value until I got the portion (even the ones listed main meals are not main meal size). First got the bamboo shoots with sesame which was really disappointing as bamboo is one of my favorites. I thought maybe it was just that dish and it was very small so then ordered the tofu pumpkin and mushroom stir fry. Another disappointment. Service was some of the worst I've seen, even by SE Asia standards.

“Biggest food disappointment experience in Vietnam”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

I was looking forward eating at this place and I was deeply disappointed. One dish was great (8 ingredient salad) the rest were pretty odd, one tasted so strongly like clean supplies we did not have more then one bite. The service was bad as well and I would have expected the waiter to ask us why (it appeared) that we did not eat the one of the dishes. It took a long time to get severed and to get any service at any time. Very inexpensive, but not worth it.

“Well, we liked it!”
Reviewed April 14, 2012 via mobile

Quite surprised by some of the negative reviews - we thought the food was pretty good. Good fried eggplant, freshly cooked fried rice, fresh French beans - and very nice service. And very cheap too. It won't set the World on fire, but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as described elsewhere.

“Tasty vegetarian food in lovely outdoor setting in park by the river”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We stopped for lunch while walking along the Perfume River. This outdoor vegetarian place served tasty food like bahn beo and "mackeral" in tomato sauce with rice. Both were very good and the price with an ice tea and soda was 110 dong or about $5 US.

“mediocre food &...”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

The food was mediocre at best, lacking any of the fresh herbs and flavors that should characterize Vietnamese food, especially in the Imperial City. Lonely Planet, as usual, was way off on this one! Also, to make matters worse, the manager tried ripping us off by blatantly adding things onto the bill that we didn't order.
