Vietnamese menu under the glass of each table. Little English spoken and no English menu. Order "com" and you will get a nice plate of rice with a variety of veg and some tasty tofu. Price: Inexpensive more-less

Get the Hot Pot!

5
Posted on 04 / 13 / 2015

I went here for dinner a week or so ago and ordered the small hot pot to split with my travel companion. All of the locals eating dinner there had ordered it too so it seemed like a good bet. It was full of tofu and veggies in a tomatoey broth. Yum! Add in your greens when it comes to the boil and then ladle the broth over the noodles in your bowl and boom, delicious soup. It also comes with a side of fermented tofu which I loved but that my friend was not so sold on, perhaps an acquired taste?!

Pros: ridiculously cheap, packed full of locals, delicious hot pot

One of the best dining experiences ever

We walked in, were met by confused staff (this is a VERY local place), were gestured towards a table and we just asked for 'com'. I don't really know what we ate - different styles of tofu and mock meats with rice, I guess - but it was delicious and cost ~50c. No westerners and no messing about!

Nice and cheap

Good, simple and dirt cheap food. Don't except amazing flavors and refined dining: this place is just a reliable and 100% local eatery. Rice topped with tofu/veggies/mock meat ("com" on the menu) costs a mere VND10,000 (half a dollar), as do many other dishes. The "dry" pho (no broth) was okay for the price (10,000), but another dish with wheat noodles (mi) was so-so. Locals seem to enjoy the hotpot a lot. Menu in Vietnamese only, but one girl speaks a little English. Cute tableware, too! Try not to show up too late for lunch. We arrived at 1.40pm, and they were closing. Don't know if they are open for dinner.

Pros: Decent, dirt cheap food, Local eatery, Excellent value for money
Cons: Close early, Only for lunch maybe?

Great Food, Great Price

Posted on 05 / 27 / 2013

This is the cheapest veggie food I've had anywhere. We paid 15,000 VND for two plates of rice and veggies, and one plate of about 6 fresh spring rolls. We also both had a small bowl of soup with the rice. Iced tea was free. So that's only $1.20 for food for two people.

One of the girls working there spoke a little English, but if you go to the back you can see into the kitchen and point to what you want.

It was packed with local people when we went there, which is usually a good sign.

We'll definitely be going back there, as we're staying a few days.

Highly recommended.

Pros: Great food, Very Reasonable Prices, Locals Eat There

Small portions but good price and good food

Yes, the portions are small but it's really cheap so you can easily order a few things. Noodle soup costs 10000 VND.
Mock meat haters will like. The only protein they use is Tofu. There is no English menu so be brave and point at anything on the menu. If you want to be on the safe side just order "com", which actually just means "rice". You'll get rice with veg and tofu. They also understand "Noodle Soup". It's nothing fancy but good value for money

Lot's of locals. Rustic setting.

Pros: cheap, good food
Cons: nothing special, no english menu

OK food, small portions, weird vibe

Posted on 04 / 05 / 2012

Locals all gave me the once-over when I walked in, and the staff gave me dirty looks-- not sure why. I had fried rice (15,000d)- tasted OK, but the portion was tiny; 3-4 bites and it was gone. The whole experience lasted 4-5 minutes. No water, sauces, etc provided. Brusque staff.

Pros: near backpacker area, not expensive
Cons: tiny portions, weird clientele, brusque staff

    No weird vibe or brusque staff when we were there. In fact, a girl who didn't speak English went to get another girl that did, and she explained what was available.

    Ou food wasn't tiny at all, but if you need a bigger meal then you only have to ask. This place is so cheap that it seems odd that someone would complain about the size of the meal. Not sure what you expect for such a low price. It's usually packed with locals, and them all seem happy enough with portion sizes. May not suit people who eat gigantic quantities in one go. We had plenty.
