368 Phan Dinh Phung, Da Lat, Vietnam

Unassuming place located two doors down from the Thien An Hotel in Da Lat. Has a veggie banh mi stand out the front and a buffet inside, plus an a la carte menu. Staff speaks limited English, but there are English versions of the a la carte menu. A mix of mock meat, rice and noodle dishes.

Good food, large portions - Edit

Tasty food with lots of cook to order options. Have been here three times and it’s been great. Haven’t tried the buffet but there’s a huge variety. Definitely reccoemnd giving the ban mi a try! Good prices and they give a small discount to tourists.

Pros: Large portions , Good price

cheap and delicious - Edit

Friendly staff, com chay was cold like it usually is, but good variety and cooked well. 25k for the com chay including the soup, which they heated up for me.

Pros: good choice

Best vegan restaurant in Da Lat - Edit

Let's make one thing clear. Rice and buffet mock meats are generally served luke warm throughout the whole of Vietnam.

What makes Dai Loc so great is not the customer service or the rice mock meat combination but the PHO, noodles, vegan baguette, vermicelli and most importantly the HOTPOT. Boy is this hotpot value for money. We had this twice during our 3 day stay in Da Lat however the combination hotpot was our favourite. You get a pile of fresh greens, rice noodles and a selection of a variety of mock meats in a delicious soup, perfect for those cold evenings.

I cannot rate these dishes highly enough. Perhaps if your as picky as the recent negative reviews, you should probably stick to your pretentious restaurants.

Pros: Hotpot, Price, English translation menu

Cons: Some staff refuse to smile haha

This place disgusts me - Edit

Maybe all restaurants in Vietnam are like this, but at least aren't as blatant as this one. They take left over rice and dump it back into the rice cooker and mix it. They then take used plates and just wipe them "clean". If you're ok with this, they have tons of food options.

Awful - Edit

Plates of cold rice and an assortment of cold, congealed, over-salted and over-sweetened mock meats, for the same price as delicious a'la carte meals at the other end of the strip. Everything on the menu is 20 K, but they decided to charge us 30 K each for said plate of congealed items, and even added an extra 5 K each for the customary 'complimentary' soup. Don't bother.

Great! - Edit

We really enjoyed the vegan buffet options available. There seemed to be a larger selection off vegetables compared to other restaurants. Banh mi available at the front of shop also!

My favorite restaurant in Da Lat! (plus hotel?) - Edit

** As mentioned, the marker is wrong--it's further up the hill, but the address is right. **

This place was so good! They have a pretty large menu (English available). Not everything is always available, but I think whatever you get you will not be disappointed! Plus they have a banh mi stand outside (mornings only?), which is awesome. My last day there I had some noodles for breakfast, and ordered two banh mi, and a rice dish to go for lunch and dinner!

Their rice dish/buffet is fairly typical, with lots of tofu and mock meats, but they all seem pretty fresh/handmade, good variety, and some things I hadn't seen elsewhere. Their dumplings (those things wrapped in banana leaves and steamed) were really delicious too!

The staff have little to no English, but as mentioned they have English menus, and with a little effort all can be communicated. Great food, pretty clean place, and reasonable prices. It's not as central as some other places, so almost didn't go, but I'm so glad I did!

Oh, and looks like they have hotel rooms to rent too! Don't know what they're like, but had I known I definitely would have stayed there just to be closer to the food! :)

Pros: great variety, reasonable prices, delicious!

good option - Edit

It's not where it says it is on the map. I literally saw it as I was turning around to give up lol it's also on the opposite side to what it says. It's about 5 minutes more north than the pointer.
