Although you may think you are paying a little bit much for a Vietnamese local meal, the portion size is so big, the quality of food is really good, and the overall chaotic atmosphere is irreplaceable. There is only one thing on the menu and...More

It was introduced in a TV program called Battle Trip.The texture is too soft. It is delicious with vegetables, rice noodles and beer. The best way to do this is to turn around and see how others eat at the next table. Ngôn quá 배틀트립이라는...More

Ripped tourists off and overcharged us by giving one portion for 3 people. Even one Vietnamnese ate same portion as us. The menu said 170,000 dong per person but only for one. Really disappointing visit and doubt we will ever return to Vietnam.

This is an entertaining and delicious restaurant to visit with a larger group. Meals are served in a family style, large portions and reasonable prices make it fun.

They only do one dish, and u cook it yourself, it's pretty tasty( if u like fish noodles and veg), not overly expensive (if u don't drink too many beers) but you are just paying for the novelty however it is a good novelty

Little hole in the wall. We where brought here by our Thai friends. The menu only has one thing (fish), so you just sit and they will bring you your food. The food was really good, worth trying it.
