Cheap and tasty

I first ate in this restaurant back in 2008, and had many meals there during my 10-day stay in Can Tho. Five years later the food is still cheap and tasty, the menu extensive and the family running it friendly. They don't speak much English, but you can point on the huge menu displayed on the wall. Large selection of side dishes to go with the rice, and lots of different noodle soups (all at VND15,000). Pho was quite ok, Hu Tieu was good and Bun Cha Gio was excellent (I recommend that one!).
I just wanted to add that you should go for the noodle dishes, not necessarily the rice ones. Yesterday (01/14/2016) I tried Bun Hué, and really enjoyed it.

I went back there today (April 2023). The place is still a decent option. I had bun Cha Gio and bun xao, both were ok, although the fried spring rolls were a bit greasy and not that fresh. I'm adding a photo of their menu for everybody to see what they offer and how much it costs...

Really good

I got a bamboo soup for 18.000 and it was delicious. My friend got rice with veggies. It was really good in my opinion. The woman speaks English, so it’s a bit easier. I was sad that I had only time to go there once.

Pros: Can decide between a few options., (Cheap meal under 20.000), Friendly

Not a good experience

The food was cheap but was too weird and oily. We did not enjoy it and felt our stomach for few hours after. Ok as an experience but will never come back.

Pros: cheap

Cons: oily, not pleasant

Small, friendly and tasty

We tried this on our last day in Can Tho and glad we did. Just pointed to things in the buffet and all of them were very nice. More tofu and not much (if any) mock meat (we prefer the tofu so good!)

Very cheap! Try the stuffed tofu!

Pros: Tofu mostly, less mock meat, Cheap, Friendly and helpful owners

Cons: Limited English spoken, JUST POINT
