You can tell that thought was placed into the construct and presentation of the dishes. Overall, the food was not bad. The grilled chicken & mustard leaf rolls were stand out dishes - very delicious. However the experience was ruined by the poor service. The wait staff taking our orders was sulky and slightly impatient, and when we placed an... More

Pros: the food is great All waitstaff speaks adequate English The atmosphere is great as the clients are mostly young locals or tourists who are mostly young too I prefer the appetizers more, skip the main meals Cons: there's a restaurant across from it that has free live entertainment (middle eastern dances) that is rather loud

I had a business dinner here between American and European colleagues wanting to sample local cuisine and was impressed. The restaurant required reservations and was quite busy, but service was good and the a wide variety of Vietnamese food we sampled was excellent. Loved the spring rolls and hot pot in particular, but everything was good. My only suggestion for... More

On our first night in Saigon we visited this quaint place located on a small street of restaurants. Menu was varied with many different dishes and the waiter took his time telling us about the dishes and how they were prepared. Inside and outside dining! Food and service was excellent.

I've been here several times and this place just doesn't disappoint. Yes, you can find local delicacies in almost every corner of the city and probably at a fraction of the price, but that's not the point. You go here because the food is good. That's it. My all-time favorite is the pomelo salad with crab and squid. Sweet pink... More

Enjoyed the food, but it started to rain as we were finishing the meal, so we asked the our waiter to call us a cab. After we completed dining, the taxi had not arrived and the manager asked one of the bus boys to go and flag a cab on from the steeet and have them come into the courtyard... More

Gets a good wrap in the press this resturant, but does not present as good when you are there. Good food, but still average

This was the last night of a 3 week trip and I'd say this may be the best Vietnamese meal we had. The outdoors space wraps around the place with is in an alley with other restaurants off the main street - so it is lovely sitting outside there. The food is creative. The fresh pan fried tofu app melts... More

This restaurant shares a little courtyard with a number of other restaurants off the main street. Thus you can eat outside and have relative quiet and no street people bothering you. The staff were very helpful in picking dishes and then in how to eat them. Try the crispy duck confit salad, a great example of how Vietnamese cooking combines... More

Lip smacking food at great prices, lovely waiting staff with options to sit indoors or outdoors. Try the starter platter, tofu, eat three kinds of BBQ pork ribs, chicken and beef. All were tender, juicy and very flavourful.
