Good place to eat. The food was delicious and prices were cheap. Service was quick although the waiters were a little rude : no smiles, no menu was given for the drinks or meals. Food literally thrown on the table - standard Vietnamese service basically. But all in all it was a good experience. Would recommend.

Quite a fan of the Vietnamese restaurants that only do one dish, they master it and they never seem to disappoint. This is no exception. Amazing beef noodle salad for only 60k. Ask for chilli if you like it hot, i think they make it milder for foreigners as locals had plates of chilli that weren't given to us. A... More

They have 4 items on the menu, and have mastered the Bun Bo Nam Bo! Absolutely delicious meal for only 60 000VND. I highly recommend this place!

What a treat. Deceptively large so if it looks full, walk to the back. They make one dish and do it perfectly. Great taste. Helpful staff. Great value. This is one to go back to over and over.

We struggled to find meals at a decent price. We went due to the TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It was very cheap, my partner both got beef noodle salads and pork rolls rolled in banana leaf. It was amazing and cost 196 000 dong for two beers, two beef noodles and pork rolls. Definitely go and don't judge... More

Five stars based on food. Closer to a street food stall than a restaurant. Some of the earlier photos don't belong to this place.

Went based on some great TA reviews. Hardly fine dinning, and they only do 1/2 dishes, but they do them incredibly well. Excellent beef salad, which was what 99% of people were tucking in to. Great flavours, and we have been back twice since! Seating is usually shoulder to shoulder with the locals, so is a great authentic experience! Good... More

Believe the hype! Place was packed when I arrived, luckily I was taking away as it was chucking it down and I CBA to hang around! An absolute stunner of a dish - perfect slippery noodles, deliciously cooked beef, fresh salad and topped with just the right amount of crunch. The broth was also faultless. Simple food cooked perfectly, with... More

Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.
