We returned the very next day to order the exact same thing, after we had the coconut vegetable curry here. It was delicious and so cheap. The restaurant is comfortable and bright and the staff were helpful and welcoming. The manager/owner was evidently quite proud...More

After reading so many positive reviews I though I would be a fool to miss out on giving this little gem a try. The lane way is well populated and not as dodgy as some reviews had intimated. The kitchen is out on the street...More

Don't be scared of the alley ... this place is definitely worth it. We had a great, authentic pho and banh xeo. Great value - it warranted a return visit for Nutella pancakes! Yum! Just off walking street.

Ate here after seeing good reviews and wasn't disappointed. I had the chicken claypot, which was spicy, but tasty. My friend had the vegetarian coconut curry, which she enjoyed. Great food for a reasonable price. Quick service. Located down a typical alleyway in Vietnam.

We had the chicken in clay pot and the chicken Vietnamese curry. Both very nice. Service is quick and friendly. Food and beer are cheap. Popped back the following morning for breakfast. This is more cafe style than fully fledged restaurant, but would definitely recommend.

Staff is friendly and the dishes are very tasty. Tofu in Clay Pot is a recommendation. The prices are really low which makes it popular for the traveller with a small wallet. One negative is, that they are serving crocodile.
