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.

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.

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!
