Intransparent pricing and unfriendly staff - Edit

Small and simple place. They have an english menu, but the staff speaks no english at all.
I ordered some food and when I paid in the end they demanded more than the amount in the menu by typing it into a calculator. I refused to pay and showed them the menu price. Some more staff came and showed me with their hands that I should pay more. I insisted on the menu price. They had a long discussion in Vietnamese and also showed the Menu to a Vietnamese student who was eating in the restaurant. Eventually they demanded the correct menu price, maybe because of the student. But they were very unfriendly doing that. I won't come again.

Pros: The food is quite decent, The prices are reasonable, if they charge you corr

Cons: They don't speak english , They try to charge more, They are unfriendly

Reasonable food, cheap - Edit

The menu has English descriptions and photos, though staff speak very little English.
Most, if not all, dishes are described as vegan.
We tried vegan stir-fried noodles, mock pork with rice, mock chicken with rice and banh xeo pancakes, with fresh passion fruit juices.
Vietnamese tea is provided at the tables.
The food was good but not spectacular - there are lots of really good places in this bit of Da Nang.
There was an odd thing: they put 3 dishes of food on the table before we ordered anything - not sure whether these were free leftovers from earlier or what but they did it to all the diners and no-one ate them so we didn't either.
We also felt it wasn't a very friendly place as they didn't smile at us at all - maybe they'd had a long day.
Whole meal (for 3 hungry/greedy people) came to 180k dong.

Pros: Seems mostly vegan, Banh Xeo!

Excellent food - sadly questionable price policy - Edit

I went there a few times and always got a bill that was different from what prices the menu had. I cannot understand this and found it quite sneaky after the second time. The food however is good (can recommend the vegan beef salad!) and they prep it real fast. However, I cannot support a restaurant that does not have transparent price rates so I'll choose another place next time.

Pros: fast food prep, taste is good

Cons: no english speaking staff, price policy

great pho, very cheap - Edit

My family came to visit from overseas so we took a trip up to Danang. Although I was the only vegetarian in the group of four, the non-vegetarians in the group loved it. The pho bộ was amazing. My father enjoyed the Bun Thit Nuong (vermicelli topped with grilled mock meat) and my brother liked the Mi Quang (thick rice noodles in soup). The only fault I had with the food was that it came already covered in sauce (cheap chili sauce found on the table of every restaurant in Vietnam). I didn't mind the spice, but I would have preferred the choice to add the sauce myself.

Pros: pho, pho, pho

Cons: use of too much sauce

Delicious and cheap - Edit

Lunch here was very tasty. My friend and I each had a different kind of pho and really enjoyed it. At the end of the meal we thought she had undercharged us since it was so cheap. We actually asked twice to confirm we were paying enough! Each bowl of pho was only VND 20,000. The passion fruit juice was also really good - not watered down at all like so many other restaurants. I'll definitely be back here on my next trip to Da Nang.

Pros: Good food, Cheap

Amazing - Edit

Food is delicious and amazingly cheap. Mostly noodle dishes but so flavorful! We treated ourselves to 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 drinks for 130k. We especially enjoyed the banh xeo (roll your own spring rolls). Will definitely be going back. The women here know what they are doing!

Pros: Authentic , Cheap , Flavorful

Cons: None!
