After having the most fantastic pho in Hanoi we were really craving some by the time we reached mui ne... And it was very very average. Spring rolls were pretty good though! This restaurant Is very handy for hotels that are on the outskirts of town (like ours) but the food may be a little bland..

Small portions for everything but seafood. Taste was ok. Noisy Street outside. Live fish beeing killed where you eat.

The food was ok but the terrible service made it not even worth buying. The workers made you feel like you were ruining their night by eating there.

Discovered this place through a friend who is living in Mui Ne and we were really glad we did: it doesn't look like much from the street, however the food is delicious and also quite cheap. It's a 10min drive or so away from the center of Mui Ne beach and worth the drive. Can highly recommend it, especially the... More

This restaurant is not pretending to be something it is not: just a simple cheap restaurant mainly targeting the Russian tourists. Nevertheless, the service is impressively bad. This was the first time that I saw restaurant staff not exchanging one single word with the guest. At the beginning I thought it was a communication problem, so I gave my order... More

I think this place is great for lunch. The portions are on the medium size though and for a dinner I could use more. Hell the prices are cheap though and I haven't had a bad meal yet. Friendly staff and nice environment.

Warmly welcomed when we arrived (5 Pers without reservation), the owner gives us a table after a few seconds. They speak fluent english and do their best best to please you. The place is crowded, for one simple reason: prices. You can have 3 dishes for the price of a single one on the nearby restaurant. Good food for a... More
