Went there for Cha Ca after a number of years - this is probably the 3rd or 4th time eating there. The food is basically fried fish (although it's advertised as grilled) in a pan fired by solid/gel fuel. The fish sits in some oil...More

This is one of the best Vietnamese dishes that will improve the impression of this cuisine. Grilled fish with lots of green onions and fennel with cilantro chili peanuts and nuoc mam over rice noodles.filling and savoury - worth the effort to find it.

Delicious, beautifully cooked cha ca, with generous heaps of fresh herbs on bed of rice noodles, and a sprinkle of nuts. Very filling and satisfying. Definitely one of the best meals I had in Vietnam!

Bringing a high hope and ended up with dissapointment. Food was little and pricey and nothing special. With price of 170000VND per pax i can definitely have better meal in other place.

I was taken by some business colleagues and it was worth the trip in the rain to experience this unique dish. Fish from the red river and amazing balance of Flavours and greens. Do yourself a favour and seek it out. Oh. So cheap too
