Good reviews on Tripadvisor prompted our lunch time visit to Pots n Pans and we were not disappointed. A delicious menu and very attentive and friendly service. It was not busy at lunch time, but I understood from the restaurant staff it is more of an evening venue. That being said, the lunch menu is very good value so definitely... More

We too, ate at this restaurant upon a review in Lonely Planet. We were surprised at the quality of service and of the food. We were served by a lovely young woman and I regret not getting her name - she was delightful and added to our experience of a lovely night out. The food was fantastic, beautifully presented and...

We had dinner in this restaurant upon Lonley planet's siggestion: the area in which the restaurant is situated is not nice and the restaurant itself it's pretty simple in the furnishing. On the contrary the food is amazing and very well presented; the staff is very helpful and kind as well. The bill though is pretty expensive for Vietnam (we... More

Outstanding service and amazing food at this small but elegant restaurant. We were looking for a place to have a romantic anniversary dinner and took a chance eating here - and it was the perfect choice! They have a full wine menu and some tasty after-dinner liquores, too. After being served a little appetizer (free), we settled in to having... More

On our last night we were looking for a restaurant and this place was so nice to keep the kitchen open for us. Food here was amazing French influenced. Staff has such great knowledge in the food, food was amazing and food looked great too. Highly recommended.

After hearing about this place in LonelyPlanet, thought we'd give it a go! One of the best meals I've had in a long time! Everything was perfect from the food to the waiters and what makes this place even better is what they stand for. Helping younger people from less privileged backgrounds! 5**
