Wide choice of food and friendly service. A bit pricier than other places nearby but generally good, fresh food. If you order bottled water, make sure you get the local stuff and not the very expensive Evian!! The restaurant is on the 14th floor so the views are great but you can also walk up another flight of stairs to... More

the menu comes with a picture of what you're going to get so it means you can go a bit off piste when choosing. Everything was well done but perhaps not as ethnic as some would like. The service is punctilious and the aircon is strong. Enjoyable

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The first was seven years ago and the meals are as good as ever. Seafood, beef, chicken, pork, vegetarian are all on the menu with various mixes to choose from. Do try the spring rolls. Meals are reasonable. Along with three orders including one appetizer, beer and 7 Up; the bill was... More

We walked in off the street and were given a ground floor table. The menu is basically a picture book to choose from. The food was good, quick and freshly cooked (and looked fairly similar to the pictures). Drinks were slow in coming. We felt the cost was fair for the quality of the food and the service. I just...

Excellent and interesting salads. Clay pot dishes also worth trying. Service very good and had a traditional musician providing pleasant background music. Recommended by our tour guide. Is off a small side street so could be missed.

We were just after a light dinner having had a substantial lunch. Lemongrass met that need really well. We both had a different Pho and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would be interested in sampling wider from the menu on another occasion.

Had a very nice meal here .... service was good and meals didn't take too long to come out even though they were busy. I just thought that for 2 million dong ( about $90 ish dollars) for 3 people was a little rich.

Looked this place up on Trip Advisor, and having rung to check availability, turned up that night. Unfortunately, as the place is so popular, we ended up on the 2rd floor (3rd floor to non Brits) There was only another table of 6 up there, so it lacked somewhat in atmosphere. Having said that the southern Vietnamese style food was... More
