We saw the reviews and thought to give the place a try. The reviews were good so we ignored the fairly steep prices expecting good food, I was wrong.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the food was alright. Cocktails were served without ice, so better order something else. Service was very slow. The place was less than half full, but we still had to wait 10 min for the menu and 45 min for the first dish. We are still waiting for the last beer we ordered...

Good local food with friendly family staff. Rice wine produced by the owners parents is powerful stuff. Loved it. We only eat vegetarian food and after a first visit the menu was a bit limited, but everything we had was very tasty. Shame about the massive TV playing loud kids cartoons, but this is not difficult to avoid as its... More

The food was good and to our surprise, we got to try the rice wine for free! The decor was pleasant and family owning it, very lovely.

Our guide from Vic Travel took us here for lunch and ordered our dishes. We had the local specialty, goat meat roasted with garlic and sesame seeds. Very tasty but meat was tough. We had Chicken with honey, braised pork in a clay pot, eggplant with tomatoes and garlic, and green papaya and carrot salad--all were superb. Service was attentive.... More
