Never come back

The staff is so rude, I asked for a plate of raw vegetables to eat with the noodles , but the staff used their hand took a handful of vegetables and put it directly into the bowl of noodles I was eating.

Not worth another visit

Don’t like this veg restaurant as much as others. It was not so tasty, clean and the staff was not so nice to me.

Delicious vegan vietnamese Street food!!!

It’s a cute little restaurant you’d almost didn’t recognize it as one, but the food is amazing!! It’s not at all where tourists go so you get the local real food.
They have so many meat replacements it’s impressive and all of it tastes so good and is so cheap! (The most expensive dish is 20.000)
They don’t have much of a selection and there is no menu but you can show her what you want and it’s like a buffet (they don’t speak English). The veggies and stuff are cold but the rice is hot and the soup as well obviously.
So delish, I can only recommend! (:

Best food we had in da nang

It's a vegan eatery. Don't expect them to speak English... That s not a place for tourists and that s why you get the real deal. Cheap prices and a lot of mock meat and fish. Try it and use Google translate when you get there. They were all surprised by the fact we came there... And we communicated with a girl through a translator. The steamed cake was a cold noodles plate with some fishy stuff on top.. And the noodles were great!

Pros: Super cheap, Authentic dishes

Cons: They don't speak English

Com/my quang/bun chay

Typical com chay place. You choose couple of things from a table what, they serve you warm rice with them. Seen many people complaining about the food's temperature but most com chay places have their toppings cold :)

Pros: Tasty and many options to eat with the rice. Famil

0 Stars - Worst experience ever, avoid this place

Horrible and very strange experience, as I was served ice cold food by an extremely hostile elderly woman who didn't even offer me a menu, she just brought a plate of ice cold, inedible food, which she threw on the table and gave me a hateful look as she walked to the back room and disappeared.

I was shocked and very confused by this experience. Avoid this place.

PS: happy cow won't allow me to rate this 0 Stars, otherwise I would have.

How to ruin a good experience

The food was good, the young lady was friendly, and it was overall a good experience... untill the young girl went out, and the old witch took over. Extremely rude, she barked at us to hand some money, we couldn't understand the price.. she sneezed in the food, and throw some change at my GF... Plenty of nice vegetarian around here, they lost 2 regular customers that just moved to Da Nang. We will be eating elsewhere.

Amazing street food

Huge serving of mysterious veggies and mock meats and rice for just 15,000 dong. Family run business, no English but very friendly. The food was a little oily but not heavy and with lots of good flavor. Great street food place!

Favorite spot in Da Nang!

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Da Nang. It's a small place that's run by a really lovely woman. Most of the time you can only choose from a handful of dishes and there isn't a menu (at least I didn't see one). Simply point to what you want and she'll make it for you.

Soups are 15,000 VND. She usually also has a big buffet with heaps of veggie options. Not just mock meat! Unlike other places, you simply pay 15,000 VND for the buffet and that's it. She then gives you a plate full of food, it's incredible! If you are in Da Nang and love low-key places definitely try it out.

The people who run Giac Ngo are incredibly lovely. I loved everything I ate there. Especially the soup!

Pros: Great prices, local spot, Try the soup!! Best one I ever had!

Cons: Nothing!

2 Options

It was the closest to us, so we thought we’d try it out. Got there and they only had two options, noodles or rice. Sadly we didn’t enjoy the food but the owner was polite and the bill came to 30vnd (£1).

Pros: Value for money, Polite

Cons: Choices, Atmosphere

Recommend this place

For 15k dong you cant beat this place for not only cheap eating but really tasty too. I had a plate of rice with veges and tofu and it was so yummy. The other day I had a pho and it was equally delicious. Not a big menu by any means but really good food! Will definitely return. Highly recommend this place.

Pros: Very cheap, Very tasty

Cons: None

Great Value

Came here for lunch and as we didn't speak Vietnamese and the staff didn't speak any English, we were just served plates of food with a little of everything and some soups. The food was very tasty but a lot of it was cold (including the soup) from sitting for a while so I was expecting to have an upset stomach but to my pleasure I had no issues. We got very large portions and my boyfriend got an extra plate of food all for 30K VND.

Pros: inexpensive, tasty, friendly staff (despite the language barrier)

Cons: some dishes were cold from sitting out

Very nice place!!

Really love this place! In our opinion - the best vegan place in Danang. You can have a big plate of rice with 3-5 dishes only for 15k dong! (beggining of 2017) Portions are big enough.
Very cute women hold this place. They dont speak english, but they can understand what you want;)
Also Vietnamese noodle soups availiable. Only for 15k too.
Works from morning to 7-8 p.m.
Sometimes some Vietnamese goods availiable as well. Like desserts. Buut I dont know the names:)
Really the best place:) Strongly reccomend!

Pros: Tasty food, Cheap, Lovely staff
