I tried going twice. Once it was closed around dinner time, so we went somewhere else. The second time I saw it open during the day, around 3pm, with a lady sitting by the menu stand that had been put out.

I said hello to her when I approached and then started reading the menu. I was really hungry and wanted to eat somewhere soon, but when I went to sit down and asked the lady for a green curry, she just mimed that no, the place is not open or something.

Why they have their gate open, the stand out with the menu, and a lady sitting out front to greet customers, but aren't actually open, is beyond me. I do not know why the lady didn't just tell me or mime to me in the first place that they are not serving food, before I started reading the menu and went to sit down. I will not try this place again. Waste of time.

We wanted a relatively cheap but authentic Vietnamese meal and were not disappointed. For a family of four the total bill was 900000 Dong, including beer and the food was a excellent. The menu was not particularly expensive and we had spring rolls and crispy prawns to start and a variety of mains, all of which were delicious. The vegetables were particularly good - very crunchy and far from over cooked.

They do have one or two odd European things on the menu (my daughter had Bruschetta) so it would be a good place to go in a group with mixed tastes.

All in all, if you want a cheap, unfussy option I would highly recommend it.

Had two meals here and can't fault it at all. Great food at a cheap price. Very authentic thai food. Cheap drinks but all together a great meal.
