Lonely Planet review

Providing a memorable dining experience, this is the original location (inside a tottering old house) of an expanding family of restaurants that specialise in Vietnamese cuisine from the northern mountains. There’s an astounding array of dishes from bite-sized snacks like superb nem ca xa lo (catfish spring rolls) through to meaty dishes like lin luec mam tep (pork fillet with shrimp sauce). Wash it all down with a bottle or two of delicious Son Tinh liquor made from sticky rice. There is another, newer branch in the Old Quarter on Bat Su, and it owns the flash House of Son Tinh complex incorporating a restaurant and cocktail bar on the trendy Xuan Dieu strip near Tay Ho.
