Local vegan buffet

Maybe we have not caught the best timing for the buffet with rice, because we were a bit disappointed by the options. A lot of them were similar and all of them were heavily spiced. Taste was just okay in most cases.

Lovely restaurant

We went there in the evening (after buffet hours) so the choices were really limited. The people running this place are adorable and the rice noodle soup was sooo good ! Prices are reasonable and they charge you extra if you don't finish your plate which I think is a great thing to do!
Small hotpot for 2 is also enough to eat !

Best option for budget travellers

This restaurant run by a very friendly owner is an absolute blessing for low-budget vegetarian travellers and big-eaters. The VND35k-unlimited buffet with lots of options (veggies, tofu, some mock meats) is a great deal. Finally a place in VN where I can eat my fill and leave without the feeling that I need a little extra something! Noodle soups are very good too (30k). Another great plus is that they're also open in the evenings (unusual for cheap local veg' places in VN), but the buffet may be finished if you come after 7pm (sometimes it was, sometimes it wasn't). I loved this place!

Cannot understand the hype

We went there for the buffet. It was okay, but we didn’t really like all of the vegetables. Tofu and rice was good, but everything except for the rice was cold. Price is super cheap though. Maybe the hotpot or soup would have been a better option. Not a nice atmosphere as well, but at least a local and non-touristic place

Fantastic cheap vegan food

We‘ve Been Here several times, it’s really delicious. For 35k (30k for children) you will get fantastic Food. Recommend to visit at Lunch Time, because in the evening the choices Are limited and there will be no refill if something is empty. Free Tea!

Wir waren hier öfters. Für 35k (30k für Kinder) kannst du dir so oft einen Nachschlag vom Buffett holen, bis du satt bist. Am Besten kommt man zum Lunch, am Abend ist die Auswahl nicht mehr so gut und es wird nichts mehr nachgefüllt. Der Tofu ist köstlich, die Besitzer freundliche Tee gibt’s gratis.

Pros: Cheap Vegan Buffet for 35k, Best Tofu in Town, Friendly owners

Cons: No Refill in the Evening

Dont like the sweet taste

The food was sweet, which I don't like. Probably they make for the flavour of southern people. The hotpot was sweet too but cheap, only 80k for a small pot. I feel like 30k is a bit steep for the buffet without refill.

It's a steal

Buffet, as of 1/mar/20 costs 40k VND.
For that you get rice and 10-12 dishes of your choosing (including 1-2 soups). Ice tea is also available free of charge.
Everything tasted nice and with this many dishes I'm sure everyone finds something they like.
Some might miss fresh veggies, but this is a typical Asian cuisine, where everything needs to be boiled/roasted/deep fried, so I wouldn't lower the score for that
Also: the best seaweed soup. It actually was thick with seaweed, unlike majority of soups I had before. Loved it!

Pros: Tasty, inexpensive, many dishes to choose from

Best Vegan Buffet In Town

A large and varied selection of vegetable and tofu/seitan dishes. The food is vibrant in color and aren't over-cooked. All you can eat for only 30K. They are also know for their hot pots (mushroom or Thai) because of the broths.

Good value for money

Selve service buffet just outside the main centre of town. The food was good and lots of variety but it quickly ran out and when going back for more were less dishes available. This may have just been the timing but we ate there at about 6pm so not too late. You get what you pay for, very cheap and good value.

The best vegan buffet ever

We’ve been travelling SE Asia for 3 months and this is some of the best food we’ve eaten. Came here 4 times (twice in one day). Seriously good variety and the food is really high quality. It’s busy all the time full of mostly locals. And only 30k (£1) for all you can eat buffet water and ice tea.

Pros: 30k - v cheap! , Delicious , All vegan

Great buffet! 30k

I ate here seven times. Good variation of dishes. Be on time here, because after an hour or two the food is run out and they won’t make more.

There is also small menu. Hot pot and noodle soups. I didn’t try these because the buffet was so great.

Very good vegan buffet

Very good vegan all you can eat buffet. The Lemongrass Tofu is amazing. be sure to be there 1h for buffet ending, so that you have all the choices.

some articles in their shop aren't vegan (not even vegetarian because of gelatin)

Pros: very good vegan buffet, cheap, all you can eat

Cons: some non-vegan options in their shop at entrance

Amazing vegan buffet from 10:30 am (I believe till 2pm) or then from 4:30 pm (I believe till 10pm as the closing time was not specified anywhere) with soup, water and ice tea included all together JUST FOR 30.000 VND(approx. £1) !!!

The owners do not speak English and we did not meet any tourists however we felt very welcome and left super full :)
