“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

New restaurant opposite Famiama Resort in Duong To, outside seating, staff friendly and efficient, service was quick.
Food was beautiful, both our curries were tasty, spring rolls nice.
Thought it was a little expensive for where the restaurant is, all be it there are few restaurants this end of Long Beach.
I recommend people try this place.

“A different experience.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

If you like eating when your partner hasn't been served, warm white wine and general Fawlty Towers approach, this is the place for you. We ordered 2 starters and 2 mains, one if us had starter and main before any sign of the other starter. We then chased the staff, who promptly brought starter and main together. 10 mins later we received the rice. The food itself was reasonably good, but if you are in a group of more than 1, be prepared for Basil and Manuel to sort your evening out!

“Have the coffee shake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

To be fair, my rating is mostly with regards to the coffee shake, which, if you've been craving a frappucino this is as good as it gets without Starbucks around. And only 30,000d, so around $1.50
This review is for the beach location, I did not try the roadside one closer to the Night Market.

I did also eat here and the food had pretty nice flavours, but I'm certainly no expert on the food side; it sort of fell in the middle for me for what I've had here in Vietnam.

But seriously, have a coffee shake. Or two. Or maybe 5.

“Value for money is good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

We tried this restaurant, which was very busy and made a good effort to fit everyone in. Drinks came quickly but it was 60 minutes before any meals came, and several came another 30 minutes after that. Some drinks and courses never arrived, but they cheerfully removed them for the bill. Strangely, people arrived after us and seemed to have no problems getting their orders, even though we only ordered dishes like noodles and vegetables, which are not complicated.
May suffers somewhat from a disorganised system but still provided generous, relatively cheap meals and drinks so gets a four star rating, despite our three star experience.

“Very busy, but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

The night we dined here it was especially busy, & the staff were run off their feet. This would explain why we were forgotten for one of our courses but being so busy we did understand. The food was good the portions were large& had we had more time would have returned
