We came here by mistake instead of the proper Coriander restaurant at 185. The food was tasteless, the staff got the order wrong and the restaurant is hotter than being on the busy street outside. Do not go here.

Of course we only tried two dishes, namely the green veggie curry ($3.5) and the whole grilled sea bass in banana leaves ($9), but both were FANTASTIC, really the tastiest we had in our 4 weeks in Vietnam and cambodia. Note: you should like it spicy and bring some patience, the fish takes some time to prepare.

This restaurant has not clue on how to run a proper business. The owner had her crying baby son in the restaurant throughout our time there. And the grandmother was walking around the restaurant trying to soothe a crying baby while diners were eating. What's worst was that the baby vomited on himself in front of our table while we...

Nice thai food and a huge menu, the location is great, restaurant itself is not very cozy but fine for a lunch or dinner. Unfortunatelly the service was not very good. Would recommend it because of the food.

Thai food in backpacker area in Ho Chi Minh owned by Vietnamese. Not quite right Thai taste but cheap. Selection is quite fine. Tiny shop many floors with small tiny chair. Need to walk up and up. Many staff to serve but not well.

If you have a strong craving for something different than Vietnamese cuisine, you will not be dissapointed with this one. It serves Thai cuisine with slight adjustments in the spicyness of the dishes (so Westeners can eat it). Still, a hit was the Green Curry as well as the Fried Basil Chicken. Located conveniently just off the main street.

After finding this great little place - so happy we decided on Thai for dinner. One of the best green and red curries we ever had! Perfectly balanced flavours - would definitely recommend.

Food was okay, the menu said spicy but that wasn't the case at all. And we thought they offered us free towels, but when we got the check, it showed as an extra. Drinks were 5.000 more expensive as showed on the menu.
