“Go to this one, not the neighbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

I have tried both this one and it's neighbour, Lac Thien, which has the board out the front with all of its "guidebook recommendations". Go to this one which is the first of 3 together. The service is better, food portions and quality much better.

“Really good food, nice owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

The food was quite good. The owner is really nice. There were no tour offers or stuff like that at all.

Yes you can get cheaper food in other street restaurants. But sorry: the prices are still very low. We had 4 meals and 2 beers: 190k Dong.

We gave a good tip and immediately got a desert for free.

“Average, hassled...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

The food was fine if over priced, but we were pretty aggressively hassled to take a menu, it was only because we were tired and hungry we gave in!

On top of this we were also hassled to buy tours and souvenirs while we were eating.

Not a great experience.

“Great lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We went there due to the proposal in our guide book. Nothing to complain about, the owner is very nice, we understood him better than most Vietnamese people we have met.. Maybe the food is a bit pricey in contrast to what the guidebook claims but it still is good value for the money.
