The staff d really helpful and nice, and when they realized I wanted to try plenty of dishes but was only one person and couldn't eat it all, they pointed out that they had a half plate option, so I could get half of everything I wanted and try it all. That was wonderful, and it's great for solo travelers... More

The ambiance is nice, although the seats are as comfortable as a hard seat on the train. The waitress barely spoke english and could not really explain what was in the dishes. I explained that I could not eat mushrooms and ordered two dishes that, according to the waitress, were without mushrooms. Both dishes were stuffed with mushrooms... The fried... More

Vegan Vietnamese restaurant, just outside the main tourist areas. This was very inexpensive, but we did not enjoy as it felt tired and run down. Almost no English spoken and it was hard to work out the dishes were. Taste etc was OK – perhaps the environment was just too “authentic” for our tourist tastes.

We eat here often and sometimes get it delivered as well! Great variety of dishes in the menu and everything we have tried tastes flavoursome. The tomato tofu is packed with flavour, as is the sweet and sour ribs. The service is great when we eat in the shop- they don't speak a whole lot of English, but they certainly... More

Searched trip advisor for vegetarian food and found this spot. If youre with friends who aren't vegetarian don't worry as they have just as many meat dishes and meatless ones. We tried 4 dishes and all were yummy and locally priced. I read another comment about the service being difficult due to the lack of English but I didn't find... More

The food reflects the prices. The food is nice, but not the best. We walked a little bit further down the road and found the MOST AMAZING VEGAN RESTAURANT.

We arrived on a Monday night with only one other patron inside. The interior is not pretentious just simple Asian and the service was fast and pleasant. The food is really good! We had two types of spring rolls and highly recommend the fried lotus root.

I ordered tofu with salt and lemon grass but they put neither of these in the dish I was served. We complained three times. They refused to recook it or substitute another dish or refund our money

We were looking for a vegetarian place, and luckily we came by this little gem on TripAdvisor. A cosy place with a good selection of food, all vegetarian and vegan style. Really tasty local food with local prices. We tried a fair selection of dishes, all tasted great. The only thing though, do not expect (any) service, nor help with... More
