Their set menus are all very good. The food is really taste and the price is fantastic. The Fried Crab was the best dish of the night!

Excellent Vietnamese Cuisine near the Sheraton Saigon hotel. They have seating on the 2nd floor. Excellent food served by efficient and friendly staff. A musician dressed in traditional Vietnamese costume entertained playing a stringed instrument. Get there early as it was pretty crowded in the later part of the evening.

This restaurant used to be highly regarded but has steadily gone downhill over the years and is now just another Saigon restaurant. There are many better including in this area of the city, so there isn't really any reason to go here any more. Expensive for what it is.

My fault I guess but we took a recommendation from our guide before looking on Trip Adviser. Whilst the location is OK the food really isn't up to much and is very over priced. We had one of the set meals and whilst service was attentive they often took my plate away before my wife had finished her course. As... More

As it was highly recommended to us we just walked in off the street and lucky to get a table. Had a lovely meal and can recommend the spring rolls as a starter. Meal price was up to western rates but the meal was well worth it

We ate lunch here with our guide. She recommended three dishes and they were exquisite. The room was tastefully decorated and the bathrooms clean. The total bill with beer was $35! Would return in a heartbeat.

This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel. We ate here twice. The first time was in the late afternoon. The food was fresh, delicious and the service was great. The spring rolls were awesome. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The second time we ate was dinner time. The restaurant was extremely crowded. The food was... More

Lemongrass 1 - which is this Tripadvisor heading and in 4 Nguyen Thiep Street, appears from the outside to be a small restaurant, however the restaurant is much larger and continues upstairs. Our meals were very fresh and tasty. The service is good, although it took 30 minutes for the starter to come out, things improved well from there. The... More
