16 Nguyen Huy Tu, Da Kao, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam,

Long-time operating vegetarian restaurant, re-opened at this location a couple door down from previous location at 22 Nguyen Huy Tu. Small, simple place with extensive menu in English. Some English spoken. A few pictures posted on the walls. Offers traditional variety of soups, rice and noodle dishes, with some mock meats along with the vegetables. No added MSG. Open Mon-Sun 6:00am-9:00pm.

First Review by little.thu

very tasty dinner - Edit

We came here by accident after we tried to go to the place down the road, but it was closed. We had fried cauliflower, banana flower salad, Beijing duck, ga kho tho (fish claypot) and bitter gourd with bean sauce. Everything was yummy and they have a delicious lemongrass and chilli paste on the table - I ate a lot of that!

Great little local place - Edit

This place is always crowded especially on the lunar days of the month. The food is great and as of 2015 they are creating new special dishes everyday.

I have had many a chat here with local people.

My only criticism of the food is that they use a lot of sugar to make up for NO MSG. Worth stopping by if you are a traveler looking for a quick pick me up in the form of nice Vietnamese MSG Free Vegan food.

Pros: Vegan, Nice Local Atmosphere, Busy so you know its good

Cons: Too much Sugar, Over Crowded on the lunar days (3 days)

Nothing special - Edit

The restaurant is very close to the Jade Emperor Pagoda, so a lot of worshipers go there. I went at lunch time and it was very crowded. Small restaurant but they have also a room upstairs.
The menu is in Vietnamese. But for who can't read it, there are some dishes displayed in a stall. Each day there is a different dish of the day. The service is very fast. They don't use MSG.

It seems that the restaurant is (or used to be) part of the Loving Hut chain as there is a sign inside.

Prices are cheap but the food was disappointed. I had banh cuon (24.000 vnd) which was cold but ok, spring rolls (6.000 vnd each) which I didn't like and iced tea (2.000 vnd).

If you happen to be in the area, you can stop by. Otherwise it's not worth the trip.

Pros: cheap, fast service

Cons: food cold and not so tasty
