Well I think I’ll take chef Sen back to Australia. I’d become a rich man if I opened a restaurant and had Sen working with me. Sen takes enormous pride in the unique menu that she offers. The food is fresh, delectable and perfectly presented....More

Atmosphere was fun and relaxing. Food was OK - although pizza should not have to be eaten like noodle soup! But then again, ordering pizza in Vietnam is probably not the wisest. Had a much better experience with the Vietnamese dish we ordered.

We tried their Beefsteaks and the local dish seafood stir noodle. The food were amazing with large portion and nicely-done veggies !! The restaurant has friendly services with cozy atmosphere. It's must-be-on-your-list spot when you are in Dong Hoi !
