Good place to eat or drink out of the heat and traffic. I enjoyed excellently poached eggs and glass noodles. The staff are pleasant young women with minimal english, but the “boss” knows more.

This place has a great menu for breakfast and lunch if you’re looking for a Western meal. The food is good - nothing to rave about but certainly edible. The staff are lovely and the service is fast.
