Chef Long prepares an extraordinarily delicious seafood hot pot consisting of first and foremost the ever important broth! Add fresh large prawns, squid, finely shredded carrots, greens, cabbage, noodles, pineapple, tomato, ginger, etc then chili and it line to taste. What a welcome and satisfying wholesome meal.

I couldn't really find the place as it has moved to a new location about 200 metres from the old location. There were a few customers there already and one of them recommended the grilled fish to us and were not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious and only 90,000 dong. However the opener was a bit rushed of his feet... More

Although the restaurant was at a different location (now at nr. 241, not a copycat) we found it and had dinner and lunch here. The crab was definitely good and very fresh, the fish deliciously spiced but a bit dry. The owner is a very friendly guy who tried to give us a good time. When we ordered wine another... More

There are hardly any good restaurant choices in Cat Ba and being famished, I decided to go for the nearest restaurant that I could reach. The seating capacity of this restaurant is considered large in Cat Ba town but only one other table was occupied when I went there for dinner. I pointed at the menu list and told the... More

The food was definetly the best we got on Cat Ba. Prices were cheap, really big choice of dishes and amazing food. We went there every night of our visit. And even though the staff couldn speak proper english, they were really nice and we got along very well.

I had one dinner here and enjoyed. The waiter was very helpful. Since I was on my own, he was afraid I would order too much because I wanted to have some veggies and rice with my fish. Turned out to be very nice.

This restaurant has a very long menu offering just about everything under the sun, but you'd be crazy to look at it. Rather, point to some of the amazingly fresh seafood swimming around in the tanks out front and ask them to prepare it however it's best. You won't be disappointed!! I would also recommend the spring rolls, which were... More
