We ate lunch here. The steamed vegetables (spinach) were excellent. The sweet and sour shrimp was more sour than sweet and had a good balance of chilli and the green papaya salad was excellent. A lovely meal, plenty of it and finished off with fruit. And for those like me who have coeliacs, it was gluten free.

Been in Vietnam for five days and the food has been excellent, this standard continued at the Lizard restaurant caumay in Sa Pa. the papaya salad was a dream! Sesame and hone chicken and sweet and sour shrimp superb! The service was very friendly and prompt. As is usually the case in Vietnam the value for money was excellent!!

Was enticed by the name to take a look. NO lizards on menu!
Ordered a traditional nem and also Banh Xeo.
Banh Xeo is my favourite but the version here is very different from the ones I had in HCMC and Hanoi. The flour used has some kind of herbs in it and tasted different. So it was a slight disappointment.
The nem was good though.
And the saviour was the pasta.
Nice restaurant setting and cosy.
Near the cable ride terminal and BB Spa (see my other review)
