Be brave and try the frogs legs

Tucked down and alley the Tib was the result of a Trip Advisor search. We were delighted with the atmosphere – old fashioned in an increasingly brash city. The staff give the impression they revere the place – and with justification. The seating was quickly rearranged for five – never the... read more

I used to go there a lot when I was still living in Vietnam. I hadn't gone back for 2.5 years before last May. The

After being given such high praise by a fellow passenger (ethnic Vietnamese now residing in Melbourne, Australia), it was disappointing to say the least to be offered such poor quality food. Who would have thought that the simple Spring Roll could be made to taste musty and mouldy (well this restaurant certainly found a way). The Micro Herbs and Greens... More

Set down an alley in an elegant space full of wooden, antique carvings, the restaurant feels high-end. Overly attentive staff hover; a massive menu confuses, but all our food was delicious. Good wine list.

The food is normal, but the price is relativly high. It is my worst meal in Ho Chi Minh city. The only thing I think good is the decoration.

We come here every single year with new friends from different parts of the world, the best restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city for authentic Vietnamese meal. Great atmosphere, excellent food and service with many old staffs for years. We always love Trinh Cong Son songs and this place.

Have dinned here 3 times and loved food! Restaurant is certainly on higher end. For 2, a meal would cost about at least 900,000 ($45) not including drinks. If you know what to order, it will be delicious but if you have no clue please don't try to figure it out yourself or you end up dislike it. Ask waiter/waitress... More

Lovely place with excellent waitstaff . Opulent setting. The shrimp mini pancakes were lovely, the deep fried sticky rice was interesting, but the spring rolls, salad and flaming beef were a bit boring and not as well executed as others we've had. Prices by western standards are great value though . Worth a trip for a 'posh' dinner as the... More

Came here for lunch and was sorry we were not in HCMC long enough to make a return visit for dinner. Lovely if somewhat forbidding décor in a dark wooden house. Service v attentive and polished. Food excellent as far as one can judge in a lunch: I had frogs' legs with chili and lemongrass and thoroughly enjoyed them. Would... More
