Customers’ review:

Tam Bui Duc: "This shop is famous for local diners due to its obscure location. It’s opened by a family, hence, the service is not too professional”, Zing News quoted.

Hanh M. Nguyen: "Delicious chicken hotpot with reasonable price. The shop also offers grilled chicken. The hotpot has a lot of chicken, mushrooms and bamboo shoots. The broth has sweetness and fragrance of “la e” (Ocimum basilicum Pilosum). Both staff and owner are friendly".

Hang Nguyen: "I also came here by reading everyone’s review. I went to the eatery with another person and ordered a small hotpot of 200,000 VND (US$8.66). The big hotpot is 300,000 VND (US$ 12.99). Chicken has certain softness. The hotpot is really perfect with bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and Ocimum basilicum Pilosum. Green chili salt is also a plus point here”.

Customers’ review:

Huy Le: "The dish must be eaten right away after it’s served, suitable for the cold weather at the year-end in Da Lat. The beef hotpot is little compared to its price, but the taste is very sweet and not too greasy. I have yogurt for dessert. It is very smooth, sweet and sour enough. Although the space is small, the service is quite fast”.

Thien Tran: "The snail stuffed with meat is scrumptious though its price is quite expensive (160,000 VND- US$ 6.93 for a portion of 15 snails). A snail bowl looks quite big but it only contains snails on top. The other dishes are not special”.

Duy Tran: "Every time I travel to Da Lat, I always come to this shop to enjoy snail stuffed with meat. The dipping sauce is really perfect. The cheese yogurt is good, not too sour like other restaurants. The staff is polite and enthusiastic”.

Duc Thinh Tran: "The restaurant is crowded. The space is large. The food is quite delicious at a reasonable price. The service is a bit slow, however, it’s acceptable. There is nothing more wonderful than savoring grilled food amidst the chilly weather in Da Lat".
