“This one is a bit lower than fancy places but a good honest restaurant nonetheless. Came in off TA reviews even though not into snails – which is first half of the menu. Noodle dishes were fine. Price of most mains around 70-80 VND. Can’t complain at all.”
“My partner and two friends visited this restaurant last night. We were really in the mood for some seafood and this place happened to be a three minute walk from our hotel. Sold!
One of our friends doesn’t like seafood very much. For the non seafood eaters there are only four or five options. Do be aware of this when considering going here.
Given there were three of us eating seafood we thought we had over ordered by selecting five dishes. However when the food started being served we realised we were right to order that many servings. Portions were quite small.
This said, the food was delicious and very fresh. We hsd sea snails, scallops, prawns, crab and razor clams. All were cooked to perfection and we greedily mopped up the sauces with bread. Yum.
I do recommend this place, just be prepared to order a few more dishes than you might have expected to.”
