There weren’t many veg options but I did get a lovely pho. However the dishes aren’t clearly marked as vegan or vegetarian

Nice vegetarian options and good value

We stayed at the hostel attached so had a nice short walk for dinner one night. We ignored the vegetarian page and instead chose the vegetarian versions of things on the local food pages. The vegetable and tofu pad Thai and vegetable and tofu curry were both really good, and slightly bigger portions than we'd found elsewhere. There's also a filter tap for topping up water bottles which is handy.

Pros: Good value, Lots of different options, Filtered water tap

Little restaurant attached to the hostel

If you stay at the hostel you can get free breakfast here, for vegans it's fruits or bread with jam.
We also had dinner here a few times. The spring rolls are absolutely amazing. Make sure to tell them no egg. The other time I had some Pho which tasted absolutely plain. I wouldn't recommend it.

Curry is ok

There are two Yummy restaurants, quite different from each other. In each of them Ive ordered curry with rice and it seemed like completely different dish, still quite tasty. Ive had also banh mi with tofu and it was ok but there was to fee vegetables and I couldnt really taste any sauce. Still I recommend this restaurant, food is quite nice.

Different to many of the tourist places.

Slightly away from most of the local eateries. Great food, good prices and excellent staff - what's not to like?

A good balance of veg and non-veg dishes. An excellent veg and tofo curry is very hard to beat. Ask for it extra spicy.

Pros: Several eating areas. , Good prices, Friendly efficient staff.

Cons: Music may not be to everyone's taste

The first dish I had (veg, tofu) wasn't nice at all, no flavour and onion over kill. The other noodle dishes including the Pad Thai were nice. The guy doesn't really speak English but knows the important questions to ask e.g. with or without egg. Prepare yourself for getting asked very quickly what you want to order.

Pros: Good vegan options

Cons: Cheaper option in Cat Ba

Would never eat there again

Worst food we've had in a long time. I ordered the banana flower salad and the dressing tasted like nothing and spicy tofu sichuan which was just soggy tofu in a wierd garlic-gravy sauce. Not sure if it was vegan at all because my boyfriend had the mushrooms in cream sauce and that contained milk eventhough the waiter said it was ok to make it all vegan.

Was cheap & seemed fresh!

It was nice to discover a restaurant with a good variety of veggie options in the menu. The fresh springrolls were nice and the steamed veggies and tofu with rice and soy sauce were also tasty. (Together 40VND)
Also a lot of people were eating there. Seems to be a popular restaurant.

Pros: Variety of veggie meals, Reasonable price , nice space

Super delicious stir fried noodles!

They have lots of vegetarian/vegan options! However, watch out for fresh spring rolls as they contain egg.

Okay place, not that vegan-savvy

I’m not sure if the management here has changed or something, but from our impression it doesn’t seem as vegan-friendly as it used to be. Older reviews mentioned a friendly lady owner and staff that are both familiar with vegan requirements, but we went here twice and didn’t see a lady working either time. The guy that served us didn’t seem to speak much English so I don’t trust they would understand us requesting dishes to be vegan. We were then served egg in the fried spring rolls although we had specifically asked for no egg.
On the plus side, the fresh spring rolls, papaya salad, and sweet & sour tofu were quite nice. Fries with pepper sauce was decent too but a really small portion.
It’s a very basic kind of eatery which I have nothing against - but you can find the same dishes for a similar price at other places that have nicer atmosphere. So overall not really somewhere I would prefer to go back to.

Pros: cheap, casual local place

Cons: were served egg by mistake

Great value

Like everyone else stated, great value for money. Decent portions and friendly service. Enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. If you order juice make sure you ask for no sugar to be added, unless you don't mind.

I've enjoyed every single bite. One of the best vegan dinner in town if not the best and surely the cheapest. No frills restaurant far from picture perfect dishes however super tasty and abundant

Nice, good and cheap

Very good, cheap with nice stuff. If you will explain what you don't eat, they will make it like that. There's actually 3 restaurats from the same company/family in surrounding. I would give 5 stars if would be possible for non-veg restaurants

We ordered the fresh spring rolls which were listed in the vegetarian section of the menu. Unfortunately they contained egg and we gave them to other customers.
The waiter later told us that we should have told him that we are vegan. We did not have to pay for them.

We also ate the veggie curry and tomato tofu. The tofu in both meals tasted a little strange and we could not finish the dishes.

The mango and carrot juice were tasty.

Pros: Cheap

So yummy so cheap

I had the veggie curry and added tofu, it was so so tasty! Also, order the fresh spring rolls and fried spring rolls. The fresh springs rolls had pineapple inside which made it taste so good (it is a must try)! The food was very cheap and came out very fast. I will for sure go back here before I go to try some other options they had. 10/10 would recommend this place if you are in Cat Ba.

Pros: Lots of options , Cheap

Cons: Serves meat and fish

Hat eine ganze Seite vegetarischer Gerichte. Dazu preisgünstig im Vergleich zu den anderen Restaurants in diesem fürchterlichen Ort. Die vegetarischen Frühlingsrollen (unfrittiert) waren sehr lecker. Für 40k gab es 6 Stück.

Pros: Die Frühlingsrollen waren sogar vegan.
