Although our meals - bun cha and pork with noodles and vegetables- were tasty, it was 50% dearer than another restaurant around the corner. Decor was tired and the place could do with a scrub and paint.

High- tasty food- try the papaya salad. Be patient with the staff, they don't speak great English. Low- we order off the vegetarian menu and had meat in our meals.

Very good service, Hard to get cold drinks anywhere in Vietnam. Need to ask for ice. Point out on menu your request as sometimes meals get lost in translation.
