In our opinion, the restaurant is not special at all. Quite mediocre food and slow service. Despite coming for an early dinner, before the crowds arrived, we were made feel uncomfortable to sit at the preferred table and were wondering whether it was because we were with a child? Not much for vegetarians to choose from, and the portions are... More

Dear AlwaysSpeakOut, We are very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at Hoa Tuc. Please be assured that children have always been welcome (I opened the restaurant when mine were 5 and 3) and that the reason you were assigned a specific table is because we are often booked out from 7:30 p.m. onwards. I am also... More

The price is not expensive even by other Asian countries standards. We came later on in the evening and shared a number of dishes. The food was tasty, but more importantly the service was outstanding. Our server was more than happy to tell us where we should go later in the evening and indicate on the map places to go... More

We were a party of 8 (4 adults and 4 teenagers). Some folks were a little more picky than others, but everyone had a great meal. The service was attentive and helpful. The food we ordered was really flavorful and aromatic. It was a great introduction to Vietnamese dining in a location that was hopping with activity. The table was... More

Food was nice, the bbq beef tasted good! Portion of spring rolls was rather small (4 pieces) in relation to the price. But it also tasted good. A nice place, cosy, just a bit expensive related to other vietnamese places....

We were a group of 11 and followed the recommendation of our tour guide to go to this well located nice restaurant in HMC. We were quite satisfied, but not delighted. I am pretty sure that there must be tens of restaurants better than this one in HMC.

Bills itself as nouvelle vietnamese. Some dishes are pretty standard fare, while some are "nouvelle." The latter just did not cut it. For example, we had a marinated BBQ red snapper, simply cooked with roasted garlic and some greens, accompanied with unimaginatively slightly cooked carrots, green beans and chestnuts. The more standard green papaya salad with squid was very good,... More

I had a leisurely Saturday lunch here on my last day in Ho Chi Minh. Great place to loiter and watch the rain pour down outside. Food was very good, wine reasonably priced and service good. I also ate at Temple Club and Xu while in Ho Chi Minh and would rate the food better here and it's a lot... More

We had a fabulous evening here last night. From the minute we entered we got good vibes, very buzzy and full. We sat inside and the atmosphere was great. Our service was excellent our waiter helped us through the local dishes explaining them well which was extremely helpful. We had 3 entrees and our favourite had to be the fresh... More
