12 Quang Trung (at near big Market building), Chau Doc, Vietnam

Com Chay Thanh Tinh is a little market stall outside the main market. Look for the word "chay" (vegetarian) on the front of the stall. Offers mock meat, sprouts, Asian basil, greens, noodles. Vegan except for the yellow noodle which contain egg. Try the pho (rice noodle). Sells a small selection of grocery.

First Review by jasminetea

Varied menu, good food - Edit

Judging by first appearances I expected little more than the standard plate of rice, some mixed veg and mock meats.

It was great to find a varied menu, with English, including various hot pots, soups, spring rolls, tofu dishes and mock meats.

The fresh spring rolls were great, with a generous helping of tofu and fresh herbs inside the wrap.

For dinner, the aubergine was excellent and for breakfast the next day the rice was good.

Pros: varied menu, tasty food

Good value - Edit

Had a Com Chai (rice with vegies) dish here. Everything that looks like meat is made frome tofu. don't be afraid!

Pros: Close to the market, not too expensive!

Be careful: this is not purely vegetarian - Edit

Sadly didn't have a good experience with this place. It seems to market itself as vegetarian and has 'vegetarian' written at the top of the menu but when you look through it most of the dishes are chicken/ pork / beef/ seafood. There were a few tofu dishes, 'stir fried mixed veg' and some mushroom dishes that were veggi but for some reason they didn't have half of these. The food I did have here was very average and there were loads of bugs/ flies that were being propelled into our food by the fan above us.

I came home and read the reviews of this place on happy cow and thought that maybe I should give it another go and order something 'mock meat' so went back. We were sat next to a German couple who were not vegetarian but had ordered chicken. I asked if it was real chicken and they said it was and that it even had skin on it. the staff speak no English and got really frustrated with us on both days when we tried to clarify if the menu was vegetarian or not. I think the term vegetarian has been lost in translation here and that they are actually serving meat which some people have assumed is 'mock meat' because of how they are marketing themselves (probably without realising).

jasminetea 02 Oct 2013 - Are you sure it wasn't just mock chicken? Some of the mock meats do have fake "skin" on them. Maybe it was just so good it fooled the couple eating there! I had no problems with this place. But it was a long time ago, so perhaps things have changed.

Beautiful and Delish dinner spot - Edit

Rolled into Chau Doc for the night prior to heading to Phnom Pehn. Current reviews are accurate - great food with street seating. Located on the corner just a little past the market.

4 of us dined, ordered 3 dishes, teas, and a pop - all for 175,000 dong. Great sweet and sour chicken, spicy citronella and red pepper tofu. Tried the 'beef nuts' - the only so/so item we ordered. Would definitely go back again. good English menu - staff doesn't speak much English.

Pros: Cheap, Delish mock meats, Friendly staff

Cons: Staff doesn't speak much english, No diet pops, No beer

Good choice - Edit

I went here in Feb 2011. This place has quite a good menu and they cook your meal fresh. So unlike some other vegie places I've reviewed in Vietnam, the menu items were actually available and hot! Good soup.

Pros: value, variety, easy to find

Basic but OK. - Edit

The food is ok in this busy, clean enough little restaurant but order something that is freshly cooked off the menu as the buffet food hangs around all day in the heat and is uncovered (flies).


Cons: buffet at ambient temp., little / no english

this is funny... - Edit

i just tried to get this restaurant into this website a year ago...
well i had the adress as 30 do chieu, p.1, tp.
But i might be wrong about it, as time flyes by!
AWESOME place! Amazing Pho Chay and nice fake meat dishes. If you're doing the stupid border crossing to Cambodia as i did...go there.
The crossing is useless, but this place is worth going!!!
Highly recommended by

Friendly family restaurant. - Edit

This is actually at 16 Quang Trung. We were only in Chau Doc for one day but came here three times! The family who run the place don't speak much English but they were very helpful and service was quick. They even opened the restaurant for us one evening (it was only 8pm!). I recommend the tofu and lemongrass and the mock beef with ginger. The rice with tofu and tomato is interesting, too. It was quite busy with locals at lunchtime. They also have a small selection of groceries (cakes, mockmeats etc).
As it's a family run place don't expect glamorous surroundings but we thought it was clean enough. Prices of dishes range from 10,000-25,000 dong.

Pros: Friendly staff, Quick service, varied menu

Cons: Unglamorous surroundings
