35 Nguyen Trai
Duong Dong Hamlet
Opening Times: 7am-8pm every day
Khanh Ly, like many Buddhist ‘chay’ restaurants seem to close between 2pm-4pm and this place was no different when we visited around 3pm. However, the sign outside says open all day and the (friendly) staff with help of an English speaking customer also assured us they are open all day which is confusing as they certainly were not open when we first visited! Anyway, they were friendly and the buffet was the most extensive of all of the ones we visited, lots of mock meat but very few vegetables which is a shame. We ordered fresh spring rolls and vegan banh mi, both were delicious and the total cost was 50,000 VND. Actually, there was one ingredient in the spring roll that needed to be removed for them to be delicious and that was a green leaf that locals call ’fish mint’ which sadly does not taste of mint but boiled fish, wrong, oh so very wrong…beware!
