Enjoyable meal in pleasant surroundings.

This was a second eating recommendation from our tour guide which was much better. The setting was fine but tables were a little close perhaps. The service was good and our sea bass meals were very good. A lady was playing a harp in a rather bored manner but that was the only downside. We booked... read more

Ending up going out quite late for dinner and asked a barman as to where we could still get dinner as a lot of restaurants would be finishing around this time. He mentioned Lemongrass and it was fairly near so we thought we'd give it a go. If I'm honest I can't even remember what I ate it was that... More

Good Vietnamese Foods and Services. There is traditional live music instruments played. Cozy and tasty restaurant. However, the price is not cheap with the environment and music provided.

Amazing salad in a carved out pineapple. Nice view of downtown. Not far from the Majestic Hotel. Everything was well done. The service is punctilious and the aircon is strong.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel front desk. We were there around 5:30pm on Friday. It was empty. The waiter looked unhappy. He looked like he wanted to be somewhere else. I wished the same. My husband had the Saigon martini. He said it was good. My lemongrass mojito was ok. Food was totally mediocre. Considering the prices, I... More

Safe, busy restaurant. Hidden away, however clean & proffesional and safe. My friend that has lived there for 4years found this place & took us there, just beautiful. In terms of Vietnamese food it wasnt cheap, but still we ate like troopers & was only $15p.p for drinks and all our food!

Service here was extremely slow, no enjoyable atmosphere displayed by waiters they looked disinterested and not one smile amongst the waiters. A service with a smile would be great. Drinks and food came out late and the so called lemongrass chicken in claypot had no lemon grass flavour and the chicken was extremely over cooked. If you need tips on... More

Ordered the chicken chili and lemongrass, chicken was dry and the dish had no hint of lemongrass. Overpriced for the quality.

This restaurant had a typical Vietnamese menu aimed at tourists. Food and service were OK, but not outstanding and there are better restaurants in the city. Main courses were around 150,000Dong (US$7) and starters were around 100,000Dong (US$5). The cocktails were good.
