Honest, reasonably-priced food; courteous service; beware of extras - Edit

I came there around 5pm and the place was sort of closed. At first a man (last guest, I assume) asked me to go to another place, as they had allegedly closed at 4pm. Then hopefully the chef came out and invited me to a table, as long as I didn't come for rice, because they were out. Ordered two dishes, vegetable&tofu&mushroom vermicelli soup (honest food, not spicy, could use some seasoning) and pancakes with veg and tofu (made fresh and served with a sweet sauce, were a bit too greasy). For dessert they served fresh jackfruit (I hadn't ordered anything), which I am not a fan of, but tried anyway. The check included the dessert. They also served bottled water which I hadn't ordered and thus didn't open. It was also included in the check. I noted out that I won't need the water and they didn't charge me for it, and demanded that I keep it anyway. All of this was quite weird, like it was Morocco all over again. In the menu you can read that the orphans work there for free, so I assume the income doesn't go their way. But you can leave a donation. The venue is spacious and nice. Got a free plastic raincoat as it was raining heavily when I was going out. Tipped accordingly.

Pros: Service (orphans?), fresh, honest food

Cons: They brought dessert and water I hadn't ordered an

Beautiful - Edit

Rode my bike here and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Go to support the orphanage! I visited the orphanage/ pagoda afterwards and would say they could use all the support possible. The bike ride isn't that bad! It only took me 20 or 30 minutes from the train station, or less! I didn't really time it. It was a beautiful experience for me. Please go! They have a set menu for 100,000 vnd. I would just go for that. I ordered individual things since I went alone, but wish I got the set : )

Good Vegan Food Served By Orphans - Edit

We've been here twice. Both times the food was good, but partially served cold. Super cheap and every visit is supporting the orphanage. Really nice setting. Worth a try if you stay around e.g. in Pilgrimage village

Pros: Food, Supporting Orphanage

Lovely setting and great food - Edit

This is a lovely little restaurant, only a 5-minute walk from the Pilgrimage Village resort. We (and our taxi driver) found it rather hard to find, but it's on the right hand side of Minh Mang not far after the road divides at the Pilgrimage Village intersection. The menu isn't extensive, but the young girl who served us spoke good English, and everything we tried was good. Prices are very reasonable, the setting is lovely, and the orphanage could certainly use donations. Thoroughly recommended.

Pros: Great food, Lovely simple setting, Good cause

Cons: Distance from Hue city

Best meal in Vietnam! - Edit

It took me a lot of searching to figure out the name of the best restaurant I went to in Vietnam. But I'm pretty sure this is it. I was taken there by my motorcycle tour driver that knew I was vegetarian. They didn't give me a menu, just brought me a plethora of food. The English there wasn't great so I have no idea what I ate but it was amazing and very cheap. Highly recommend going there!

Pros: Amazing food, Helping orphanage, Friendly staff

Cons: Little English spoken
