We visited here whilst we were nearing the end of our time in Vietnam. We read a lot of the reviews and decided to come here for dinner as it was so close to our hotel.

We ordered pork spring rolls, fried squid (calamari), chicken noodle soup and chicken curry. We arrived at 6.30pm and it was completely quiet!

The food was gorgeous and we've eaten out ALOT in Vietnam. Would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for authentic Vietnamese food. The menu was quiet extensive and a little tricky to get your head around but in the end I asked for a chicken curry as this is what I was looking for and the waiter had no issue with it. The decor of the restaurant was like a cafe and a little run down but we didn't let that tarnish our experience.

Reasonable prices for food (we paid around 559VND) which included 2 beers, 2 starters and 2 mains (plus rice).

Went here for a late dinner on the advice of a local - always a good indicator - and were not disappointed. There is an ambitiously long menu which you either browse through at length (my advice is to get a long drink whilst doing so) or you take one of the set menus on trust - which is what we did.. A lazy way out but a perfectly satisfactory choice.
The décor is nothing to write home about and the location has much of the seedy back-street about it. But it is authentic, freshly-cooked Vietnamese cooking. So worth a visit. And prices are very reasonable so long as you avoid wine. Stick to the local beer.

Very extensive menu and all at a very reasonable price. Staff are good but not overly friendly. Decor is clean cafe style with little ambiance.

The place was not busy and service was OK. Cafe style restaurant same as many other in Saigon. Quite a large menu so choice is good.
Spring rolls were pretty average and were fine but not really that great, just fine. Sweet and sour chicken main course was excellent, very tasty and a reasonable size portion. Rice portion was very small. Atmosphere was bland, I think they aspire to being a bit upmarket but fail in many ways. Food price was slightly dearer than other similar places but not excessive.
