Great Food

Recommended to us by hotel staff, Lemongrass did not disappoint. Food very authentic with wonderful flavours. Beer could have been colder.

Authentic Vietnamese cuisine - delicious, unashamed, proudly not pandering to western tastes! Yes!! Lovely peaceful atmosphere despite large tour groups as well as couples and single diners like myself. Nevertheless, each gets the same good, prompt service and sufficient attention without what can sometimes be too much in some places. I frequented twice in 2 days and had spring rolls... More

We ate here as a group in March 2015. We booked a table after reading TA reviews and would definitely suggest that you do the same as people were being turned away because the restaurant was full. The cocktails were delicious and the beer was cold and fairly priced. The wine was too expensive for us though. The food was... More

We had a good experience here. Service a little slow, but it was nice to relax. Lively setting, and yes probably geared the higher end tourist trade. We ordered one of the set menus and a few Ala care items. It was way too much food for 2. Think set menu for 2 or 3. Everything was delicious and freshly... More

It was okay but just okay. Lunch at Mekong Delta Rest Stop a million times better. I am sure we could have done much better. The place was full.

Our hotel (Sheraton) really pushed this restaurant and a group of us went because it was right across the street. We all agreed that the food was good but not outstanding. What bothered us was that for a restaurant which is supposed to be one of the best in HCMC, it was dirty and dingy. We were seated on the... More

Walked in u booked at 8.45pm having just flown in. Met someone coming out, who said it was awesome, this was good needs. As it turned out he was obviously very easily pleased. Our waiter was so surly I very nearly walked out during the ordering stage, now I wish I had. The very average of the shelf food arrived... More

Not a smile in the place. Unhappy customers and staff. Better prepared food and ingredients in any decent Vietnamese restaurant in any strip mall in the USA. Ridiculous prices, $80 USD for 2 with wine. I'm guessing most of the diners relied on their guides or hotels for a recommendation, don't do it!
