The spring rolls were unbelievable, I would go back just for them. The price was reasonable and the staff very friendly. If you are in this area it is worth checking out.

The food here is just as good as the places in the main town center, but a quarter of the price. I think it's definitely worth it to get out of the crazy toursity section and come here for a meal.

Just enjoyed a nice relaxing breakfast, perfectly cooked eggs and really fresh bread. Friendly service and good prices, a little out of the main tourist roads which meant less noise and hawkers. Worth a visit and supports local charity.
