The exterior is a little off putting but the food was good and cheap, especially the bia hoi which was 3000 VD. Or about 10pence for a small glass. One of them nicest beers I've had in the 2 weeks in Vietnam.

Great vegan feast for 2! My husband and I shared the set vegetarian 1 menu for 159k after clarifying that the curry is made with coconut milk. We were very satisfied with the delicious meal and were stuffed! Definitely recommend for vegetarians and vegans!

HIGHLY RECOMEND I found this place thanks to other travellers reviews right here on Trip Advisor. We had no interest in a market tour or boat trip with a cooking class, we just wanted to learn some Vietnamese recipes and get straight into the cooking....More

We had a great time at the cooking class. Hian who runs the class is brilliant and friendly. The food we made was the best we’ve had so far (not thanks to our cooking skills!)

We cooked the eggplant in the clay pot today! It is a vegan option and it is the best one I’ve had here in Vietnam. The cost of the class in $9 and you pay for your meal on top which is only 51.000 with a local beer at... More
