Good Combination

Went with some friends for dinner and enjoyed the food. Good wine list too. Service was good. They also have a lively bar downstairs, which we went back to the following night.

This is a place where the food and service is first class and once you enter you feel very comfortable . You are not constantly bombarded by wait staff asking you how your food is, do you want "cracked pepper" etc. they go about their business quietly and efficiently, service that matches the food. We would visit again next time... More

The food was sensational and great atmosphere. The Floor manager was hilarious and pulled a great trick on us during the meal. I think the venue is ideal for a private function for VIP guests and it is something I would entertain. The fact the owner had grown up in my home city was a great pointer. My only criticism...

We enjoyed the modern twist on Vietnamese food that is on offer in this swanky lounge and restaurant. The tasting menu was the way to go and we loved the wine pairings. Sure, this place is bar far more expensive than any other meal we had in HCMC, but it's still much cheaper than a restaurant of similar quality and... More

My wife and I went for dinner last night and had a great time. Not being overly hungry we went for the a la carte menu. Spring Rolls and Vegetable confit were delicious. Mains of Seabass and Chilli Prawns equally as good. We swapped dishes and had a try of all the amazing food. The best part was the little... More

I was there yesterday with my family (2 boys 11-13) and had a great experience. You can get 3-5-7 course sampler menu with paired wine. We decided to order many different appetizers à la carte and shared. Everything was good. Only thing I could say is food wasn't warm enough. Wasn't cold but should have been warmer. By the way,...

This was where we went for a nice, romantic dinner. The atmosphere was dark and luxurious. It was definitely the kind of place the encourages dates. We had the five course dinner and enjoyed them quite a bit. Be forewarned though, the place is a little hard to find, even with the address in hand.

Having lunch here. With one set lunch and soft crab spring roll. The food tastes good but the portion is very small. Like soft crab spring roll, it's 160,000 but only 4 spring roll in it, with even less portion of soft crab. Set lunch is 295000. With a salad : with one piece of pork and two piece of... More

Having read previous reviews we decided to dine as we wanted modern Vietnamese food. We choose a few different dishes to share. The spring rolls were delicious full of flavour and the duck was fantastic. The food is what we had expected, delicious and the service first class. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this place
