If you are all Vietnamese-fooded out, try this place. The clam chowder in the bread bowl is great. They have a good fixed price lunch menu. A little pricey, but good food. The baba ghanoush is also very good.

Frankly the service and food is average or marginal. I have been there twice. The meat in the Gyro is very good however the rest of the garnishments or food is nt that good. The cucumber sauce was more yoghurt and rather bland. The pita bread was uncooked and tasted like flour. The fried cheese with feta was not impressive... More

This is not Vietnamese food; not even close. It's not Asian food, but it is a restaurant serving excellent Mediterranean food (mainly traditional Greek dishes) of a very high standard. You can certainly challenge me on what is good Vietnamese / Asian food, but I can hold my own when it comes to European tastes and this restaurant is excellent.... More

The best clam chowder soup I ever had in the town. Service is quite nice too, the waiter keep coming for adding more water if our glass getting half empty. But quite noisy sometimes on the second floor when event happening.

My wife and I went here on a whim after reading reviews. The place was great! Service was very nice and attentive. The food was really good. We both got the lamb gyro plate. We have been in HCMC for over a year and this is the best mediterranean food that we have had!

The mains were excellent: her lamb chops were very tender, with a fantastic bbq flavour on the outside; my salmon was very nicely done too. We've had some very disappointing lamb at a number of restaurants in this city, so we were really happy to see Skewers get this right. They also served a very good dry martini. We also... More

As a last meal before leaving we decided to have a steak after three weeks of excellent Vietnamese food. We could not have chosen better. Super food and great service.

Visited this restaurant for dinner after reading about it on the net and we were delighted with good food and wine the place has to offer. We had chicken, fish, beef dishes and hummus which were all good. The service was good. A little noisy and pricey but tasty food so would definitely recommend it to all.

Looked great on website and Trip Advisor. First clue should have been no prices on website menu, but TripAdvisor stated $$ Expect to pay $30 - $50 per person that is $$$$ in Vietnam
