Me and my friend came here expecting a cozy warm vibe for dinner. Turned out to be a most unforgettable experience that we've ever had so far in Da Lat. The food was fragrant and delicious. Shrimp paste on sugar cane and spring rolls are the must for starter. The main course, we had chicken curry and fish simmered in... More

Dear Gigi1599, On behalf of the restaurants I sincerely apologize for the bad experience you experienced at our restaurant. we always want to give customers good food and the best service quality, but waitress went backwards on the motto of the restaurant, so she was laid off after we verify things clear. Thanks for your information, it helps us to... More

Service is very good, but food is below average. Oily spring rolls, pork in claypot has nothing to do with claypot cooking methods - just a rather rubbery piece of pork steak cut to pieces and put into the pot with a sauce that kills all other taste with sugar and salt. We had better meals in Dalat.

The food we ordered was good, however not the best we had in Vietnam. If you are curious and want to taste some of the local wines, you can go there. Great service!

We were hesitating at first because the restaurant was empty, but we decided to give it a try anyway. And it's proven good like it's reviews! Food is in the right quantity, tasty, and you can adjust the spiciness as well. Main course starts at 75.000 which is not very expensive!
