Sometimes a woman is tired of fried rice and fried noodles, and sometimes being a vegetarian in Vietnam is hard and boring. And then she goes to Chookie's and has a cheese and avocado sandwich on whole grain bread, served with fabulous chips. And she is happy. And Chookie's is right across the street from her hotel....

This is a cute little restaurant in a small town. It's great if you are craving some western style food and are vegetarian. The vibe is super chill and relaxing. We had veggie bahn mi and a chickpea burger. Both were delicious!

My girlfriend and i heard nice things about this place and so gave it a try. We each ordered a burger (pork and vegie burger). The burgers were delicious and reasonably priced (90k dong) The service from the staff was great. They are very friendly and relaxed here. Like everyone in Ninh Binh. Would highly recommend getting some western food... More

What a lovely place, directly over the road from our guest house Ngoc Anh, this place is quite new but appears to be making a name for itself as one of the best places to eat in Ninh Bình, I can only comment on the veggie options which where awesome and far exceeded our expectations, Western and vietnamese style vegetarian...

There's only so much rice and noodles you can eat, so one night we felt like some comfort food. Found it at Cookies. Delicious burgers, we had a beef burger and a chickpea burger, both came with fries, delicious and fresh and good size servings.

When in Vietnam,we like to eat as the Vietnamese eat. You can't do that here. But if you are looking for Western food, this is the place to go.

The people here are very friendly and willing to help with your travel. They also provide very good food. We had the best fresh springrolls of our trip here.

This place is quite tasty. A small menu but a delicious one at that. The crispy fried spring rolls are the best we've had after traveling SE Asia for 2 months, and the pork burger with coleslaw is worth going back for!

We arrived half an hour before opening but they opened the place for us with smile on their faces. The food was great (recommend the chicken, avocado sandwich) and the service very good.
