What should have been a nice last dinner in Vietnam turned out to be a rip off. Our advice: don’t find out for yourself and book a table at a really nice restaurant where you can leave without feeling like a walking ATM. Luckily not...representative for our other culinary experiences in Vietnam.More

The TET Menu is very delicious. The team is friendly and supportive. A well designed, well managed and well run restaurant. Not cheap.

Wow. Just wow. Amazing creativity with the freshest ingredients. Fantastic steak. Good wines by the glass. Brilliant friendly service. And to top it all off an amazing view.

We wanted to make a reservation at this place until they told us we could not have the steak cooked the way we like. They only do medium. Absolutely ridiculous!

I confirm this place give you best steak in town, and the best steak for me until now. Medium rare is perfect for me, I like the way chef grill the steak perfectly, steak is very soft and smell good, and the peper sauce is...awsome too. I and my husband had very good time here and really satisfied with the dinner, the atmostphere and will be back someday.More

Botea has the best cut in steak in the Da Lat area we have found. However they sure have their opinions on how to cook it for you. As a paying customer, we should be able to order the steak to our liking and not...be told how to like it. They insisted that the most cooked they would be willing to serve it was medium, when it came it was rare on the inside. It almost seems they don’t have the skills to cook a thick steak without fear of burning it on the outside. After much debate asking for medium well (pink inside ok) they said medium was the best they could do. I told them I cannot have my steak mooing at me. They gave me a hot plate to cook the steak further on my own. This certainly was a good compromise, but I did not think I had gone to a Korean bbq place where I needed to cook my steak on my own. The friendliness of the staff, owner and restaurant ambience was very pleasant. This was their saving grace to maintain at least a 4 star rating versus lower one. We will definitely go back and give it another chance, I hope they will come down to earth and serve what the customer is asking for versus how they think it should be.More

Ribeye steaks great and highly recommend . Both ribeye and tenderloin bought for a dinner party at home and grilled myself at Home. Botea Bistro is a great place to either dine in or for direct private orders from their shop with direct local home...delivery in DaLat. Has been the best quality meats that I have eaten while living in Vietnam. 👍More

Choosen this restaurant on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Nice décor and ambience and friendly, My friend and I, we both ordered the steak in wine sauce with potatoes and the whole meal was fantastic. Lovely potatoes, and...the best steak I have ever tasted (and I've tasted quite a few!). It was really 'melt in your mouth'. Unfortunately we were only staying for one night in Da Lat but I am sure that at some stage in the future we will be visiting this lovely restaurant again. Thanks the owner Ms Lilian :)More

Steak is tricky. People have such strong views. My Wagyu steak was medium rare and perfect. My gf's Rib eye was ordered medium but came in med-rare, we asked for it to be medium but it came back well done. Starters were lovely and so...were deserts. Decent but not great wine list too. Staff good, though some clearly not used to serving wine or steak. Met the head chef who is passionate and clearly cares. all in all, recommended.More

We visited after seeing the ratings on here and were not disappointed. We tried the dry aged and regular ribeyes and both were incredible, especially with the chimichurri and blue cheese sauces. You can taste the wood fire grill and the medium cooking was perfect....Definitely the best steak I’ve had in Vietnam!More

Had that craving for a burger and went in for lunch. The place is quite cosy and peaceful, which can be a relief from the busy streets and noise of the town. I enjoyed the blue cheese burger, less so the fries. My wife had...some pasta which was ok. No draft beer but the can was very cold. Waitress very sweet. We very much enjoy our time there. I had a look at the wine list which seemed fairly good to me.More

I went to Botea last week and it was a very disappointing experience. The dry aged steak was really terrible. It was mostly fat, no meat. I couldn’t eat it! That’s how bad it was. The creme brûlée tasted like a massive spoon of butter....Very high prices for Vietnam, serving terrible food. Avoid it! I’ll never go back.More

I have not even finished my meal but am compelled to write this review ASAP. I am in restaurant marketing in the states and have consumed no less than a few hundred burgers in my life — THIS IS ONE OF THE TOP 5 BURGERS...I’VE EVER HAD, full stop. I haven’t craved a western food since being here but am so glad I came here and got their dry aged burger. They also have a selection of steaks, and by the way this burger tastes, I’m sure they are outstanding. Hong served me, she was wonderful and able to answer all of my questions!More
