We had a veggie burger and fish and chips and it was soooo delicious. Mango smoothie was 100% fresh msde with pure local ingredients. Amazing tastes. I don't know how she buttered the fish, but it was super tasty! The fish was fresh as well all the greens. Tam herself is a marvel! Such an inspiration. If you go there,... More

If you are looking for authentic dining restaurant. it's not what you want. but If you are looking for some restaurant has story and friendly staff. it is what you want. I think just because it's not clean and has best condition with hygienic. it doesnt mean it's dirty. it's similar with local restaurant. however, the foods are nice. I... More

My boyfriend and I have enjoyed both dinner and breakfast at Tam's and both times it was wonderful! The place certainly has character, Tam is lovely, and the food and drinks were excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Da Nang.

Had the burger and fries and was disappointed. The fried were ok, but the burger patty was very doughy tasting.

I have known Tam for years. She, as others have said, is a remarkable woman. By far she has had the most interesting life of anyone I have ever known. For those interested in learning more about the war from a different perspective you will not be disappointed hearing about her experiences. Tam caters to foreign clients. Her menu features... More

From the outside Tam's look's like a lot of other restaurant's but what catches the eye are the walls inside.They are covered with pictures of American soldiers from the Vietnam war and it soon becomes clear Tam knew most of them at some point. If you like history and great burgers come here. If you want to eat and dash... More

Tam's Pub is one of the places that you would really like to fall in love with: it is located on a nice calm street, the decor is warm and cozy and the staff is welcoming and easy going. Unfortunately, the experience was quite average. The main courses start from 45k with most of the dishes at the 80-100k range.... More

Tam is an amazing woman! We were very lucky to get the majority of the afternoon alone with her. Her stories from her childhood and everything she has experienced is truly fascinating. Tam- you need to write an autobiography!! The burger was very good, and the potato soup looked amazing. Next time!

The food is mostly western. Good hamburger with home-made fried potatoes. Cheap prices! The atmosphere is very special: the Vietnamese owner is a woman who was pro-American during the American-Vietnamese war and can tell you lots and lots of stories about her youth during wartime and the bad time for her and her family when the war ended. The whole... More
