Hai Ho Family

Reviewed By Mohsen F - Tehran, Iran

Suggest it's really a family restaurant. Although we had already tried some Vietnamese meal before but everything in this restaurant seemed strange to us, we did not know the food and even we did not know how to eat them at all. No body speaks english and this made everything more complicated and finally when we were expecting for rest of our food we understood that our meal had been already completed!! however it was nice experiment.

3D Coffee

Cafe serving local Vietnamese street food and drinks. Family friendly, clean with English speaking staff.

Reviewed By Rawtalent - Isle Of Wight

Popular with the local young people, this cafe offers cheap good food. We ate here twice, choosing from the small menu, spaghetti bolognaise and stir fried veg noodles. Plus pork sticks from the street menu. All very yummy. Followed by coconut icecream. Second visit my husband had fish and chips x2 from the snack menu, I had the bolognaise again. And ice cream. Both meals with drinks came to less than 130,000vnd extremely good value. Friendly, English speaking.

Thuy Pizza

Reviewed By Anthony E - Perth

I have never been unkind or dismissive in any of the reviews I have posted. As a traveller you have no right to expect an identical experience to those you most value in your own country; with such an attitude there is no point in travelling in search of different experiences at all. So we fell at the first and most elemental hurdle in going for pizza in a country where that is not the cuisine and tradition. So that having been said I honestly advise you not to bother coming here. This is intended to assist you and avoid wasted time and disappointment. The service, the food...so poor I cannot in truth be bothered to describe what it wasn't.

Chuon Chuon Ot

Reviewed By mangocruises - Ben Tre, Vietnam

I took my big family of 12 for a reunion dinner in August and were happy with their food and services. The food was delicious and cozy atmosphere. There are tons of choices on the Menu from meats to seafood. Their barbecue pork ribs were very good and we really enjoyed it.
Located a few minutes by taxi from the center on the restaurant strip of Ben Tre town , Chuon Chuon Ot restaurant can easily spotted by its cute design in the area.

Mien Tay River Side Restaurant

Reviewed By David B L - Los Angeles, California

Somehow we got here following our Mekong canal excursion and motoring in the boat to another island. Nice restaurant built and furnished in Vietnamese tropical beach motifs. Nice multi platform areas. Clean, spacious, ceiling fans with friendly staff and very good food, featuring the elephant fish served vertically, also fresh spring rolls, soup and pork w rice. Pretty good for this distant location!

Diem Phuong Restaurant

Reviewed By Dr_Bob1 - Birmingham, United Kingdom

We lunched here after a trip on the Mekong and too many coconuts.
The food and service were very good with some local delicacies, elephant ear fish and ‘dinosaur egg’ dessert. Drinks prices were reasonable and the toilets (though a bit of a walk) were clean.
I suppose it was unremarkable, but we enjoyed it and would be happy to go again.
