We ate here during the our first night in Saigon. Very good food and very good staff. The food was however very expensive for Vietnam standards but it was worth it.

Friendly and professional. Excellent choice of menu dishes; something to suit everyone. It is popular with locals which is always a good choice. Close to major hotels. Quiet background music was appreciated.
