First Review by Egg But No Bacon

Excellent! - Edit

Best vegetarian food we had in Vietnam. Everything on the menu is vegetarian friendly so choosing from the extensive list is worry free. The spring rolls were divine, as was the bok choy/mushroom dish. Ate only here our two days in Hue. Great setting too and super inexpensive.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, Ambiance/setting

Good basic dishes, pricey a la carte - Edit

Nice local style restaurant with an extensive menu of veg dishes and mock meats. We ate here twice. First time we ordered the Com Dia (rice with mixed tofu and veg) for two and paid 36000VND. Next time we ordered a la carte and had a worse experience paying 179000VND.
We would visit this restaurant again but we'd stick to the simple all in one dishes rather than order a la carte.
Another tip... the restaurant closes at 9pm which means they will be very unhappy if you show up after 8.15pm and they aren't shy about telling you off which can make for a sour experience. You've been warned.

Pros: good food, clean kitchens and dining area

Cons: don't show up late, pricey if you get carried away with your order

Hard to order, but good! - Edit

The menu is big! And if you go here at night.. many things will be sold out. This place is so popular amongst the locals. I am not sure if what I got was vegan or not.. but it was good enough and you get some soy cheese with your dish which is a treat : ) I like the atmosphere and it is super close to the main area of hostels. Staff is nice and tried their best to help me order. I got the rice plate for 15,000 and some fried Jack Fruit. It is better to go with a group (I was alone) so you can order a few dishes and share or get the hot pot.

Made it just in time! - Edit

Easy to find location, about 10 minutes walk from main tourist restaurants. made it just before closing time and had mecan (like crispy fried chicken pieces). very tasty, rice not so fresh but was end of the night. Cheap and cheerful, would recommend as a must visit if in the area.

Pros: cheap, tasty

Cons: bit of a walk from tourist restaurants

Great Food and Service - Edit

Attached to the Lien Hoa temple, this place is a real gem, and we're so grateful to Happy Cow reviewers for leading us here! Great breakfast soups with inexpensive coffee and chè for dessert; fantastic hotpots (if a little over-salty, but seems to be the Hue way) for a reasonable price. Our unseparated-12-jewels-something salad was especially unexceptional, but so far everything else has been pretty good.

Pros: good for all mealtimes, reasonable prices, friendly attentive service

Best vegan/vegetarian in Vietnam so far... - Edit

Went here three times in 24 hours, due to the goodness and cheapness. Packed with locals and foreigners alike.

Air conditioned area is available, but the outdoors has more charm.

Very good soup broths.

Pros: Open from early to late, Very quick service , Large menu of fresh stuff

Cons: Not enough time to try everything.

Unique restaurant with a variety of food options - Edit

The food at this restaurant was unlike anything I've experienced. They had unique dishes, some which I never saw again during my stay in Vietnam. My husband and I had the fried jackfruit, which is a must have, some type of clear noodle dumplings, spring rolls, steamed rice, and morning glory. The dishes also came with 3 different sauces. Everything was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive. In addition, the total cost of the meal including drinks equated to $4 usd.

Pros: Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff

Wide variety - Edit

Busy restaurant, many locals but also tourists. Menu is translated, but sometimes unintentionally funny. We had a couple of dishes with rice. All tasted great. Prices are ok.

Decent food, poor service - Edit

The waiter didn't pay much attention to us, and was very slow. Small portions but decent food.

very good - Edit

Very good restaurant. I went two times, to try all the best of the menu. Don't miss mecan and jackfruit. They are really tasty. Soya cheese is like faux meat, and the paste choices a little bit disappointing. However, a cheap yummy meal.

Pros: good food , nice staff

Cons: the place could be cleaner

Great food with nice atmosphere - Edit

A lovely little restaurant right on a main road. There were lots of good food options. The "small" hotpot is enough food for two (or more). The jackfruit with sesame was also a good savory appetizer. The one dish not to miss is the "salad" called the unseparated twelve predetermined affinity is a must have. one small note is that while we were in the restaurant there were 3 rats running and playing in the courtyard of the restaurant.

Pros: lots of options, nice decor

Cons: rats

It looked really nice - Edit

The place seems to be really popular, for it was crowded when we arrived. The menu had so many items to choose from! Unfortunately, we were not impressed by the food... Something seemed to be missing. I guess they just don't put much effort into cooking.

However, the atmosphere was really nice there, so I do recommend this place at least for a drink and a small meal.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, A wide menu, Spacious seating area, nice decorations

Cons: The food was not very tasty, A lot of the items were sold out

Bustling, charismatic vegetarian restaurant - Edit

All the food is very good and inexpensive. It can be hard from the English menu to determine what's what, but you can't really go wrong. The staff are busy but very helpful in trying to explain the menu.

Pros: Atmosphere, Prices, Food quality

Cons: Confusing (English) menu, Cash only

Hilarious menu, great experience - Edit

Delicious food in a great atmosphere with very amusing translations! The unseparated twelve predetermined affinity was the highlight!

Hype ZERO STARS - Edit

was running late and got there 45 minutes b4 close. thats usually good enough time to get food b4 close. Nope! they were already basically closed....but open. and only one thing on the menu that was orderable sucked. really bad canned bamboo shoot/canned mushroom/canned something else over rice. tasted like the smell of canned bamboo shoots. the rest of the menu looked pretty damn lame anyway. i seriously could not tell what ethnicity the food was...they could have easily chopped a little cabbage and onion and steamed or fried it up a little.NOPE!
so i ask the guy at the front whats up with the no food thing at an open restaurant. he says only rice.. whatever dude. so i ask when do you actually have food. he tells me to come back at 6:30am... no! i will not ever go back even if they had run out of food 1 minute b4 i got there. this place fricking sucks!
im not the only one either. this is prolly a daily thing there. i read at least one more review almost exactly like mine. i think it was on tripadvisor.
by the reviews on this site and my experiences at these joints, i figure most reviewers come from parts of the world that dont have much in the way of fake meat. these eateries get top notch reviews and places that are actually healthy and tasty get crapped on.
way to go guys.

Pros: cheaper than usa

Cons: no food, bad tasting food, unhealthy food
