Very nice restaurant ! The food is delicious, very tasty and the portions are way bigger than what we are used to have in other restaurants in Vietnam. The staff is great, funny and speaks good english. The prices are absolutely ok. I would recommand you to try their home made yoghurt, simply divine.

Delicious, we had the Vietnamese lotus salad and the shrimp/sugar cane appetizer. Both were great. The shrimp on a sugar cane dish had some do-it-yourself assembly which was really fun. Would definitely recommend.

Me and my friend came here expecting a cozy warm vibe for dinner. Turned out to be a most unforgettable experience that we've ever had so far in Da Lat. The food was fragrant and delicious. Shrimp paste on sugar cane and spring rolls are the must for starter. The main course, we had chicken curry and fish simmered in... More
