Respond to Review of Com Chay Thanh Tinh

Review: Sadly didn't have a good experience with this place. It seems to market itself as vegetarian and has 'vegetarian' written at the top of the menu but when you look through it most of the dishes are chicken/ pork / beef/ seafood. There were a few tofu dishes, 'stir fried mixed veg' and some mushroom dishes that were veggi but for some reason they didn't have half of these. The food I did have here was very average and there were loads of bugs/ flies that were being propelled into our food by the fan above us. I came home and read the reviews of this place on happy cow and thought that maybe I should give it another go and order something 'mock meat' so went back. We were sat next to a German couple who were not vegetarian but had ordered chicken. I asked if it was real chicken and they said it was and that it even had skin on it. the staff speak no English and got really frustrated with us on both days when we tried to clarify if the menu was vegetarian or not. I think the term vegetarian has been lost in translation here and that they are actually serving meat which some people have assumed is 'mock meat' because of how they are marketing themselves (probably without realising).

Are you sure it wasn't just mock chicken? Some of the mock meats do have fake "skin" on them. Maybe it was just so good it fooled the couple eating there! I had no problems with this place. But it was a long time ago, so perhaps things have changed.
