“Good budget option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

After trying a few places recommend on TA we were slightly disappointed until we tried this place. The majority of the food we tried in Cat Back was average at best but this restaurant seems to be making an effort and was really quite cheap. We went 3 times for dinner and saw the same people returning each evening so it was doing something right. For the money this place has no competition that we could find.

“Great sea food and spring roles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

We just had an evening in cat ba town (as we were staying at a resort) so can't compare with the rest of the town but trip advisor sent us here and I'm glad it did! Superb spring roles and the loveliest fresh crab I have had in a long time. Tuna and prawns with squid also excellent.

“A good option for seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Not the best restaurant in the world and perhaps a bit overrated, yet Phuong Phuong is a good option for seafood and spring rolls. I also enjoyed their fried rice dishes. Good for people watching, especially at night and during the weekends when the row of restaurants to its side are packed with tourists and locals engaged in very noisy revelries.

“try the springrolls!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

I went here two times and the food was always pretty nice.
The first time I just had fried chicken rice. Second time the vegetable fried noodles and springrolls. The portions are quite big and tasty as well.
Good value for money!
-Don't know about their seafood. Second time I've been there they fished out quite a lot of dead crabs out of the basins...

“fresh and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We spent a week on Cat Ba Island and tried many of the restaurants downtown. Phuong Phuong offered many vegetarian options and everything was delicious. Food and beer was reasonably priced and the staff were nice too. We went back several times!
