This was the best meal we experienced during a couple of weeks in Vietnam and not just because of the stunning view, which is particularly good from the observation desk a floor above the main restaurant. The initial impression was it was likely to be unusually expensive, as it looked so plush, but other than the wine list it was... More

This was round the corner from our hotel - and recommended by our guide. It's OK. The food's OK. But that's about it. No atmosphere. Average service. Three floors - we were on the top floor. Nothing there except a few tables. I'd avoid it. I'm sure there are better options in Saigon.

This restaurant is widely recommended and was disappointing and (for Saigon) expensive. Food is too Westernised and not good even then. Service pleasant but a bit slow. The crabs were under age and should have been allowed in the door. The Viet Nam House restaurant nearby much much better.

My delicious food was spoilt by the 4G badly chipped dishes they were served on and the thought of all the hidden germs!

Great choice of dishes, many local ones! Definitely recommend the lemongrass starter dish to share as it had a great selection of rolls and meat! The waiters were friendly & helpful. On top of the great food and service theres a we could watch boats cross on the river and see all the city lights (a great sight at night.)

On meeting up with a tour group, the group leader recommended this restaurant which was a short walk from the hotel. It is, if I can remember, on the 14th floor and which affords good views of the city. I have read some of the reviews prior to posting mine and I don't understand how anyone could say that the...
