“Good at tourist prices”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

It used to be excellent, it is now only good. The pork skewers are still nice, although you find better ones on the street near the bridge on the corner of Nguyen Thai Hoc St. The Banh xeo are too greasy for me. If you think it's cheap, think twice and check the real prices the locals pay...

“Brilliant back-alley gem”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We are here a few nights ago and loved every minute - the staff are funny and friendly and the owner (?) after showing us how to make our own satay rolls, practically force fed us. More food than you can possibly eat in a great relaxed, local-feel alley. The food is genuine street-food to expect oily rolls, tho the pork is really excellent. Highly recommended!

“Great Food and the best Service ever”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This place is magic , just go there and find out for yourself. The food is great and so cheap and the service is excellent . We also got a free fruit plate after our meal . We had all we could eat for 4 people with 6 drinks for about $12.

“see the real vietnam”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

a bit hard to find but worth it. Eat like a local. Just go, have a seat, the food will show up at about $5 per person! GREAT experience. Get out of the pure tourist restaurants and live the real vietnam!

“Authentic Vietnamese food at a great price”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

A real experience of street food, for a very very cheap price- an excellent meal. There is no menu, they just bring you everything - various meats on skewers, fresh herbs and salad, rice papers, pancakes - and teach you how to put it all together. Its relaxed, fun and so damn tasty...
