We had lunch here as part of a day tour.from Hanoi The buffet was served with plenty of selection to choose from. Unfortunately the food was only luke warm due to the bain maries not being heated. If this was rectified the meal would have been so much better.

We enjoyed the food at this restaurant, particularly the roast goat. The restaurant caters for large numbers of bus tours and overall is reasonable considering the remote location. It was just a little disappointing all the food from the buffet storage pans was only luke warm.

I went with the cheap version of the tour and choose the "standard meal" which was a three course option downstairs here by myself as everyone else went upstairs for the buffet and I defended the "full court press-sales pitch" a few times on why I should upgrade to the buffet. I thought the meal was authentic and great. it... More

Good, basic Vietnamese food. Their Pho is from a packet, so maybe avoid that. Their spring rolls were excellent.

Worst lunch we've had in Vietnam. Soup was inedible yet the staff did not even bother to check why we hadn't touched it. Forgot to bring rice and water and didn't bother to apologize. Fish was fried and not grilled as listed, and nothing to talk about. Noodles were tasteless. The staff were too busy screaming at someone over the... More

We stayed in this hotel two nights during our three night stay in Cat Ba. We dined on the first night. We were not impressed. We had fish soup, fried spring rolls and sweet and sour pork. We ate most of them, but they were not something we are keen to eat again. I got an impression that the restaurant... More

Like most buffets the drinks were not included but they were reasonable. The food was piping hot and delicious. The dessert buffet had many choices from fresh fruit to assorted pastries and... More
