We used to eat at Basilico almost every other Sunday, but changes in the food quality, portion size, service, and general ambiance have diminished the experience. Without exception, everything has gone down. I always order the eggs with smoked salmon and herbed cream cheese. In the beginning you would get 3 scrambled eggs with two very large, thick slices of... More

We went there for afternoon tea. Had an absolutely to die for Panna Cotta. The best we've had in Vietnam, and we've had a few! The lunch menu looked great too. Nice setting on the ground floor of the intercontinental Hotel.

If you're hitting the pavements of Saigon hard and need a refreshment break, head to Basilico in the lobby area of the Intercontinental Hotel. They do great Vietnamese ca fe sua da, beers and juices.

Very well trained staff and the complimentary little appetizer was a very nice and very taste touch. We ordered a seafood salad, scaloppine and seabass. Seabass wasn't great, quite plain as savour. Desserts were something different from what we expected: panna cotta was served in glass and very smoothy, more like a cream. The millefoglie was disappointing. We should give... More

I came here for lunch with some work colleagues who were staying at the Intercon. They'd been here before and couldn't recommend it enough. The staff were really good and their English was easily understandable. The food itself was beautiful, we shared an antipasti plate and I had the calzone pizza. Both were beautifully served and the food was of... More
