Description: Hieu's Family Restaurant is OPEN for business. We do not know who has reported it as closed. Hieu's Family Restaurant has been in operation for 24 years. It began when the family provided food on the beach for the few early tourists to Phu Quoc. There was not even a building at the beginning, just chairs on the beach. In time the family rented space to serve tourists, but each time in each location, the rent was increased, so the family had to move. Still the regulars managed to find it each time they returned. "The food is so good and so inexpensive, why eat anywhere else?" This is a common comment about Hieu's. Finally the restaurant has found a permanent home in a lovely garden attached to the family house. Though more off the beaten path, the regulars are still finding it and telling others. The restaurant is now located off Tran Hung Dao St., about 200 meters up the small alley next to Canary Hostel. Look for the big green sign that says Canary, and head up the hill.

My boyfriend and I decided to go here after all the good reviews. Since it's slow season we were the only ones there. The food was great and there were lots of cheap options ranging from 30-200k.

Came here for mainly breakfast/brunch. The family are lovely and the tables are really nicely made. There is a range of food and it all tasted great! They also got me tea which was not even on the menu. Highly recommend for a traditional Vietnamese food experience!

After reading many good reviews on this restaurant, I wanted to give it a try.

I called them 2 times on 2 days different. The first time they said that it was on construction, the second time they said that her sister was far away for 20 days so it was closed until she cames back.

Well, just call them before visiting to make sure it's open.

Dommage :(

We are sorry you were not able to visit Hieu Family Restaurant. During the low season for tourism to Phu Quoc, which is also the rainy season, the owner -- who is also the cook -- takes the opportunity to visit family in another city. In the past this has not been a problem, but now that the restaurant has become more popular, we must take better care to inform the public of temporary closures. We want to thank you for encouraging prospective customers to call ahead to be sure the restaurant is open. This is especially important when the weather in Phu Quoc is very bad. During the high season, from the beginning of October through the end of May, customers can rest assured that the restaurant will be open. During high season there is no need to call ahead. ... At this time, the owner has returned to Phu Quoc and the restaurant is OPEN FOR BUSINESS. We hope you will have the opportunity to dine with us in the future.

This is a wonderful restaurant in Phu Quoc, definitely the best place we ate at! We ate here on three nights while we stayed at Hong Bin Bungalows (see my other review) just up the road. If you are coming from the main street it is easy to find - just look for the Canary Hostel sign and go up the little alley next to it. If you keep going you will find the restaurant on the left as you go up there, it's not far.

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough because the food is delicious and I loved the location. It's set outside, under cover, make sure you've got your mozzie protection on if you need it!

Mr Hieu is very friendly and will recommend something for you to eat if you can't make your mind up! There's lots of choice, we tried quite a few things and loved them all. Make sure you're hungry, take your time, relax and enjoy!
