cheap and friendly, but strictly Vietnamese

The eating space is in the garden and on the roofed terasse of a regular house. All people cooking and serving were past 60, and the dish (which I got based on their recommendation) was what you expect from cheap Vietnamese food, though a bit bland. The staff was exceptionally nice and communicative however, and tried to find a point of contact even without being able to speak a single word in a language common to us. I left with the impression that this place has been running for decades without any change.

Pros: friendly, cheap
Cons: bland, Vietnamese only

A friendly, family run 'local' place.

We ate here today after walking down the street listed as having 3 veggie restaurants on it. All 3 restaurants are here, and the pins/addresses Happy Cow has for them are correct.

The one opposite here was closed (1.30pm) and the one further up the street dfidn't seem to be open either. On arrival here (third time lucky!) it was silent with nobody around, but a lady came out and gestured for us to sit down (no English spoken). The menu is in Vietnamese, so she invited us into the kitchen to look at the vegetables, tofu & mock meats on offer where we pointed at what we wanted. A decent sized portion of rice with some veg and tofu cost 15,000 dong. The food was nice, nothing spectacular but the standard you would expect from a real 'local' place.

If you are a clean freak then you may not like it here, it is a little 'rustic' but the food was fine and cheap if you are on a budget, and I feel that's the most important thing while travelling!

Pros: Cheap, Freindly staff/family
Cons: Vietnamese menu, Cleanliness
