Very decent Mediterrean food

We all fancied some 'western' food and Skewers fitted the bill perfectly. Big menu with a selection of grilled meats, some on skewers some not, pastas, salads, etc etc, certainly enough selection to please most groups. Service was friendly and efficient, decent wine list, and a nice comfortable... read more

Visited this restaurant last night. The food was so tasty and there was a great buzz in the restaurant. Staff were so friendly and professional. It's more expensive than other restaurants but we thought it was worth it. Goats cheese tartlet was amazing. Right beside Dublin Gate Irish pub which was very relaxed for a drink before dinner.

Needed a break from Asian food and tried Skewers based on Tripadvisor and top ten restaurants in Saigon lists. While this was not the super traditional Greek food we get in Chicago, everything was well prepared and tasty and the service was attentive. Had saganaki and Greek salad, both of which were good, hommos, which was bland and veal shank,... More

I love Skewers! The service is always great, and the food is awesome! I especially enjoy the grilled egg plant with zucchini. The bread is also always good! I've lived and worked in Ho Chi Minh City for two years, and no place is better than Skewers! Also, they serve an excellent Mango smoothie, or vanilla ice cream with expresso... More

We came here after reading good reviews on TA as we wanted to eat something a bit different to just traditional Vietnamese whilst on our holiday. We certainly weren't disappointed! We shared a couple of entrees including the signature Goats Cheese Tart. The pastry was perfect with a crisp short shell & a mound of creamy fluffy goats cheese on... More

this is a middle eastern/greek restaurant that was recommended by the hotel. At the Shrimp as a starter (very good) and Moussaka for main. While not the true traditional moussaka it was very good and the twist the chef gave it made it a unique dish. Recommended (please note this is not a Vietnamese restaurant)
