Great seafood but also a good selection of other Vietnamese food. The owner was really nice and spoke good English. We were confused first as the menu says number 26 but they moved to number 33. You can recognize it by the steps with the fish tanks. Great value

I first came across this place back in 2016 when my friend slipped on the kerb and the owner came rushing to help him up. We returned several times during that stay in HCMC as there was a lovely atmosphere eating and drinking with the locals. Fast forward to 2018 and we were walking up the street looking for the restaurant (I had recommended it to a friend who was visiting HCMC in January and she advised it had expanded and moved across the street into new premises) only to be recognised by the owner from our visit 2 years ago which was lovely. As I said the owner has invested in lovely bright and clean new premises and the food is just as good now as it was when we first visited. We ate spring rolls, chicken wings in tamarind and various noodle dishes with a fair few beers and the price was extremely good value. The staff were very friendly and attentive and I highly recommend this little spot during any visit to HCMC - we returned again tonight for more spring rolls and chickens wings and beers lol.

We first visited this place back in 2016 and couldn't wait to return. We weren't disappointed! The establishment has now moved across the road from its original spot and the owner has invested heavily in the new building. The owner remembered us before we even spotted her (a really nice touch) and gave us a very warm welcome. We spent around two hours eating our way through the menu (some traditional Vietnamese noddles dishes as well as wings with tamarind and ribs- all deliciously outstanding!) the service is excellent, very attentive and the bill was ridiculously cheap considering the amount of food (& beer) we consumed.
If you want an authentic Vietnamese experience without the tourist trappings then we very highly recommend you visit this restaurant.

Location wise, it is not advisable to walk to the location if you are staying near ben thanh market and is going there for dinner. However, the place is easily reachable by taxi though not located at main street. Food were delicious and price were readonable (all pricing stated on menu with English words) except for some misunderstanding regarding the crab pricing. We were quoted VND650,000 per kg of crab (small) but we billed VND 1++ million per kg of crab. The lady owner explained that they had run out of small crab and had given us a bigger one. Well, it was indeed big but we would prefered to be informed in advance. Nevertheless, we were still happy to pay for the bill of 10 dishes because all were really tasty. Plus the restaurant was clean and well maintained. Plus the staffs were very attentive and polite. The lady owner can speak fluent cantonese and her son can speak fluent English. Thus no language barrier. Will definately come again in future. Highly recommended.
