A chill out atmosphere, a simple and elegant interior design, open space to view the Hoian rice field before it would fade out by the invading of rude modernism. Good just with the healthy-concept smoothies, without sugar and condensed milk, or a light sophisticated meal to a romantic dinner with your lovers.Perfected with jazz music collection, from Nat King Cole to Michael Buble...Welcome all of you to come and enjoy the Vietnamese slow food meals as well as enjoy every minutes of an unhurried life.

“Excellent food- best in vietnam”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We have been to Vietnam on 7 occasions. We have found the food at Son the best we have tried and very reasonable price. They were originally over the river and have now moved across the road. Can't recommend them enough.

“Just like eating in someone's home!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Ate here last night and loved the place. When we arrived the family was having dinner outside. They happily welcomed us and served us a cold local beer. After mulling over the menu for some time we decided on the nostalgic spring rolls first. A very good start - they were delicious. We didn't order from the special menu and went with white rose, fried won ton and stir fry beef. All was served by a different menu of the family and was very tasty. During our meal the puppies were running around with family members chasing them, water was delivered and dishes were done. It was like eating in someone's home - but I guess you essentially are! I am sure the specialty items are fantastic and I would definitely go back to try them. We biked there and when paying the bill they got our bikes from the street and parked them in the driveway for us - a special touch which we appreciated. We also got a complimentary special dessert but perhaps that is done regularly. In any case, it was good.
Stop in and have a meal, you won't be disappointed.

“Best food in Vietnam so far”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Went for dinner, had the cassava salad, fishermans fresh spring rolls, beef in lolot leaf and duck with orange. Food was brilliant. Have been in Vietnam for 7 days so far and this is the best we've had. Great place with nice gardens and a river view. A couple of friendly restaurant puppies and cats wandering around too!

“Local and one of the best”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Son restraint was close to our accommodation.
We were exploring the area when we simply walked past it.
Deciding to stay close to the hotel we walked down the road and had possibly the best meal of our Vietnam trip.

Had dinner there tonight, excellent service and food and drinks. Nice Family run restaurant, the two daughters smiling, happy and speak good English. Really enjoyed the Pho and Papaya Salad.
Very nice atmosphere across the road from the river. One of the nicest we have been to.
