same quality as always

I have been eating quite a few times there. The food has always been very good with a very stable quality which is certainly the up for this place. One very bad thing, the up charge foe extra bread, and it really does not make any sense, just to make us believe that prices are that cheap that... read more

I visited there on the recommendation of a friend and was pleasantly impressed. Not the cheapest food, but well worth the extra cost.The cigar room is fantastic with a wonderful range of cigars and drinks to compliment. The owner ,Tristan is friendly and accommodating.Well done. I will be back as I have already proven.

Amazing food, as mentioned. I had the pan sear seabass with shrimp in beurre blanc sauce and it was delicious, though the service made me feel a little frustrated. The staff gathered and chat, paid absolutely no attention to the station with 3 tables of 5,3 and 4. No water was offered before/after taking order, when i asked for a... More

Both their tables as well as their bar stools are comfortable, the lighting of the place is nice and I never waited to get a table. With this excellent package also... More

The last few times I've come here the restaurant has been far from full and I assume it's the dated interiors, menu and service. Supposedly owned/run by an expat so I'd expect a step-up in quality across the board.

Very cosy restaurant with good vine. Try "File minion", it's the most delicious we've ever tasted. Romantic atmosphere.

The best BBQ in Ho Chi Minh City, the food and service is excellent.. Bit expensive but very well worth it you must try it at least once...
