I lived in Saigon for over 2 years and tried many places for steaks. I always kept going back to Skewers because it was simply the best. I now travel to Saigon once or twice a year and always make a point to go back. I was there just last week with some friends and Im happy to report the... More

Just from the outside you can see the restaurant is busy serving a lot of foreigner guests. A lot of Japanese who are known to be picky. This is a first good sign. Then you come in and you are welcomed by the owner. Another good indication that this is no food factory. You sit and get the menu. The... More

I took a date here upon a recommendation from a friend. We ordered the dip combo to start with, and shared the pork ribs as the main. We did not manage to finish either dish, so I asked to take away and dropped it off for a couple of friends to help us finish it. We found the service to... More

I have been coming here for years - introduced by a business associate. Very close to all the District 1 hotels. Great decor - a small place that is always full. Food is great, some of the best lamb chops in town, very nice wine list. Caesar salad to start, the portions are just right and a great value for... More

Have been there many times on different occasions, food taste was always outstanding, it's one of our favorite restaurant in HCMC, all friends I took there love and enjoy their food. My must try recommendations are Grill Steaks, Sizzling Shrimp, Chicken Salad and Cheddar Soup. The only thing that bothers me is restaurant staff told me restaurant doesn't provide free... More

If craving for some gyros and moussaka, this is the place to go. We've had the lamb gyros twice here and it's pretty good. The sampler platter of hummus and your pick of sauces served with Pita is just ok. Desserts are just ok here (for the price that it is $6!). Setting is formal and good for evening dining.... More

The breads are hot and fresh, but the assorted dips were awful renditions, especially the pesto, which tasted at first like pesto then quickly degenerated into tasting like dead olives. The guacamole was similarly off, as was the hummus and the aioli, which were missing some key ingredients. The moussaka was unlike any other I have tasted, the consistency extremely... More

Gary, Thanks for your visit and time to review us on TA, despite the not so favorable review. Our mixed dips platter are our most popular and one of the oldest dish on the menu. We import most of our ingredients in order to provide the best authentic taste as possible such as tahini, paprika, cumin and olive oil. Being... More
