We were walking back to our homestay and came across this place. We were a bit hungry so stopped in for a snack and some beers. It was very busy and not really enough staff to manage it. We were sitting beside someone who ordered curry and after the curry came out, it took another ten minutes for the accompanying rice to be brought to her table.

The fried rice we got was swimming in butter (?) so was pretty gross and wouldn't recommend it. The beers tasted a bit yuck - we had better fresh beer elsewhere.

All in all, don't really recommend this place.

Lovely spot away from the tourist packed streets of the Old Town. Fresh, hot local specialities served up alongside friendly, welcoming service. Recommend a visit!

Coming from Hanoi we struggled to find the same local street food atmosphere as in Hanoi. Cafe 43 was a pleasant surprise and the Pot Pork even more. Will definitely go back for this dish. They also have 3,000 fresh beer!!!

Nice little restaurant with friendly, warm service and a good atmosphere - great for a casual bite to eat and as a place to relax with a few 3000 dong beers!
