Nice food, mostly cooked not grilled. We had chicken, shrimps and mie. Satay is not satay like Indonesian. Front is open so you have streetvieuw. Nice service too. Good wifi.

Had a simple fried rice with shrimp & pork and it was fluffily delicious. My good wife had pizza and she loved it. Service was very good and the ice cream and then cocktails were only gorgeous. The window tables as people are milling about outside through the flower markets etc is a real treat especially during Tet.

Food was tasty, prices quite good, service quick and friendly. Easy to find. Really important for me, the chairs were reasonably comfortable. Will go back to try the snake before we leave Can Tho.

You get "ok" food here, surprisingly the vietnamese dishes are way below the standard compared to good (tourist) restaurants with the same price level at phu quoc or Saigon. Note SAME MENU as in Sao Hom so not really worthwhile to visit both. Must be same chain.

Starter: Hanoi style vegetable spring rolls. Should be crispy. Arrived swimming in some undefined liquid. One bite and my mouth was on fire because somebody went a bit crazy with the pepper. Not chilli - black pepper. Main: curried frogs legs with mushrooms. Principal ingredient on the plate? Lemongrass. Tiny number of frogs legs and even fewer pieces of black... More

We went there for dinner and were very disappointed with the quality of food, starter was undercooked with lots of peppercorns, main course portions were ridiculous and food not good. Really do not recommend this place.
