Visited here with my girlfriend based on the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent and very fresh, service was also outstanding. Had starters, mains and deserts and many beers and the bill was less than $20 equivalent. Definitely recommend

We stopped there after a long walk from Sofitel Metropole. We took the grilled fish and a pho. The food was delicious and they cook the fish in front of you with herbs. People are so kind and service excellent. Very good value.
