Great central location. Big menu including some vegetarian meals. My meal was a bit bland nut husband said his was very tasty.

We had a fabulous dinner here. Gorgeous flavours and such choice! From starters to the welcome and refreshing fruit for dessert I couldn't fault it.

Dined here in July 2014 and really enjoyed our meals. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was beautiful and tasty, good sized portions as well. Traditional Vietnamese decor and entertainment a nice touch. Is it the cheapest meal in Saigon? No. Is it reasonably priced for something a little more special and holistic? Definitely yes! Would be happy... More

We wandered past this little restaurant at lunchtime. It is obvious from the signage and menu that this restaurant offered local style cuisine with western influences. I am not sure what those few disappointed reviewers were expecting but they are on a different planet than most, because the food was faultless. Started with crumbed scallops and a chilli dipping sauce... More

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.

We visited the A1 restaurant so we had no view but the setting was pleasant and a short walk from our hotel. There was a traditional musician on the ground floor which we would have liked to hear more of but we were seated on the first floor so were only able to listen as we passed through. We were... More

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.)
