“Came here with high expectations because of the high reviews. But was disappointed as the environment was filthy and stinky. We have eaten at many similar street vendors, and the hygiene for this was the worst. The young staff were also disinterested in taking our orders.

Food wise was okay. Food portion was decent with the price that we paid (we ordered a bowl of Xoi Xeo for 15,000 Dong). Rice was a little cold. Would not advise people who dislike sticky glutinous rice to try this.”

“We had the grean bean paste with sticky rice, coupled with fatty pork and soy chicken, and the taste was pretty good! One thing about Vietnam is that they don’t really care much about the presentation, so the general rule about eating in Vietnam is not to judge by the appearance of the food before you actually taste it. This one is worth a try!”
