As others have said. Great authentic family restaurant. It does seem a little strange taking this alley (next to Canary Hostel) fro a few hundred yards seeming like going nowhere but worth it when you get there. Great value, great food and great experience

After researching this place on TA we found our way there. Helpful staff, wonderful quiet spot and fabulous food. Was probably the best food we had on the island. Highly recommend.

Hieu's Family Restaurant has been in operation for 24 years. It began when the family provided food on the beach for the few early tourists to Phu Quoc. There was not even a building at the beginning, just chairs on the beach. In time the family rented space to serve tourists, but each time in each location, the rent was increased, so the family had to move. Still the regulars managed to find it each time they returned. "The food is so good and so inexpensive, why eat anywhere else?" This is a common comment about Hieu's. Finally the restaurant has found a permanent home in a lovely garden attached to the family house. Though more off the beaten path, the regulars are still finding it and telling others. The restaurant is now located off Tran Hung Dao St., about 200 meters up the small alley next to Canary Hostel. Look for the big green sign that says Canary, and head up the hill.
