Stopped here for a burger and beer (and apple crumble and scotch) after a two week wander in the mountains along the northern China border. It was a fun meal catering to westerners but I was ready to put down my chopsticks for an evening....More

This is a small little restaurant that is easy to miss. It serves both Vietnamese and Western food but those looking for some authentic Vietnamese food, don’t let that put you off. The food is excellent and flavoursome and the cocktails are delicious. East meets...More

Enjoyed Spaghetti with Bolognaise sauce there today. Delicious. Great view of the market area street from our table, which was about three flights up. Clean restaurant. Ideal for tourists.

The ambient is really cool! The prices are very good. We ordered a hamburguer with french fries (89k) and a vegetarian meal with rice, veggie meat and vegetables (79k). Good promotions, such as some drinks (30k). The food is tasty, but the portions are not...More
