Pros: Food, Staff, Prices

Vegan pork and coffee

Not a great experience but was probably just because of what I ordered. I went to order the vegan pork, the server suggested I go for something else. Also it says rice is included in the main dishes but you have to pay extra. I ordered a coffee and it tasted of gone off milk and chemicals. The vegan pork came within about 2 minutes and was cold and soggy, so was definitely not fresh. I also asked for some fresh chilli like it had in the photo. The server said they didn’t have it but then I asked again and they brought it. I didn’t drink the coffee and they gave me 50% off the coffee which was appreciated.

Good but not great

We were very excited to go here - it certainly has a unpretentious feel and a cool location. Our first disappointment was that roughly half of the menu was not available. Mot of the menu is standard fare, soups and vegetables. There were only a few dishes that seemed enticing enough to order.

We ordered:
Fresh Spring Rolls - very good
Tomato and tofu soup - very good
Vegan Shrimp - very difficult to eat, rubbery and covered with a huge amount of very salty old bay seasoning. Big disappintment.
Pork - good enough, but I have had better

The service was rather disappointing - we felt like the staff wanted to take our order and get us out of there as quickly as possible. Little to no English was spoken.

Overall, this was a good meal but we saw no reason to return. I notice other reviews mention a change in ownership- maybe this is the reason for it not meeting our expectations.

Pros: All vegan, Some very good dishes

Cons: Most of the menu is unavilable, Cold and unfriendly staff, Some dishes are almost inedible

New owners, new menu, new name. New restaurant.

Worst pad Thai I’ve ever had. Full of bizarre stuff like fake prawns and strips of banh mi style tofu. Edit: actually says on the menu it contains all that nonsense. But taste was still terribkfMy fault for seeing the name and not reading. I just expected pad Thai not some Frankenstein meal.

Gone steadily downhill since the new owners.
Definitely shouldn’t have kept the reviews from the old restaurant. It’s new owners, new name and new menu. Nothing to link it to the old one apart from the address.

Pros: Tones of vegan options!, Inexpensive

Delicious and cosy

Tiny restaurant, where you have to have the plan to go there, otherwise you won’t find it.
It was very delicious, drinks to sugary, but that‘s quite normal in Vietnam. 😜
Waitress was surprised but very happy for the tip. 😜

Pros: Only vegan, Creditcard accepted

Local food at tourist prices

This is local food, aimed at tourists. The prices are therefore 50% higher than you'd pay for equivalent dishes in a local restaurant, and the quality is pretty average.

The service is pretty slow and not very friendly, and they don't provide napkins (just wet wipes, that you'll find when you get the bill that they charge for).

Wonderful Vegan Food. Wonderful Vegan Family!

Still wonderful and delicious food.
I love each dish. Still the best value vegan food in Saigon.
What a wonderful vegan restaurant in District 1, Saigon. In my 17 years eating local vegan food in Saigon, this place is up there with the best. Fantastic food. Welcoming staff and owners. Lovely ambiance. Probably the best value too. All this delicious food and drinks for only 235.000! If or when you are in Saigon, please visit this wonderful vegan eatery.
Out of 10 stars 🌟, this place gets 11!

Okay, aber verstehe den hype nicht

Restaurant war okay. Recht teuer und für hiesige Verhältnisse ziemlich geschmacklos. Hatte Nudeln mit Gemüse. Sauce war ein bisschen wie im europäischen Chinarestaurants und hatte nicht viel mit vietnamesischen würde zu tun. Chilis für irgendeine Form von Schärfe gab es nur auf Nachfrage. Dad essen kam nixht gleichzeitig, sodass man nacheinander essen musste. Schade

Doesn’t live up to the hype

We went to the restaurant because of the many good reviews. It is located in a small alley and is relatively small. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the food. The dishes look completely different on the menu and some dishes are only available on certain days of the week. Unfortunately, the menu was also a bit cryptic for us. The food was also not convincing in terms of taste and price compared to other stores. Unfortunately, we could not understand the reviews on happy cow after our visit.
