This is a must go restaurant when you visit this rustic town. This is billed as a restaurant that serves Vietnamese cuisine. It is not very often that you have a Vietnamese actually concocts these goodies. Rene, the owner, whipped up some "mean" dishes.

I love Vietnam's pho noodles, the best food I tried in Saigon was their Pho noodles and it is amazing that Rene;s Saigon almost has it.

It was actually my first time to go to Puerto Princesa and I was really craving for Vietnamese food; aside from the chaolong of course. Man, the fresh spring rolls are so good, and the homebaked French bread is superb! I will definitely go back next year! The staff are awesome too!

Quite far, pricey compared to other "chao long-ans" in Puerto, serving time is kinda long, but all that doesnt matter anymore once food is served and consumed. Best tasting vietnamese food in Puerto!

The owner is half vietnamese (from Palawena and Vietnamese origin) and is very accommodating specially in giving choices as to what the restaurant offers.From home made "french bread" to "Vietnamese coffee". This restaurant offers the "best among the bests" vietnamese noodles which the locals named "chow lung" in Puerto Princesa City.
