Must go

The fact of being a bit distant from the city center is easy to forget when you penetrate the great atmosphere. Delicious food served by a very professional and kind staff. One of my favorite restaurants in Vietnam.

This was our last night in Vietnam after an epic but brilliant 12 day trip from north to south. We decided to really push the boat out so we did just that! Through the restaurant you can arrange to arrive by speedboat which was absolutely brilliant fun. Picked up from our hotel, driven to the jetty, hopped on the boat... More

We have just had the best meal on our whole Vietnam Trip. Fantastic setting over the river. Superb food - we tasted all the signature dishes. What a choice. Staff smiling and enjoying their work. The man from Boston (Geoff) controlling the show. Make sure you get to this place. We will be back.

We had a fantastic time at the Deck, everything spotless: fantastic food, great drink service, and obviously the greatness of the views as we had a table by the river. Very good atmosphere with jazz and chill music, playing at the right volume. We started the evening with some fresh oysters, the mushroom selection and duck rolls, everything great. We... More

What a beautiful restaurant! The decor is simple and elegant and the feeling is relaxed/resort. They serve up the best Benedict I've had, in my opinion, in district 2 thus far. Quite a bit pricier than some of the other cafes in Thao Dien that serve up breakfast at 190,000VND for a serving of Bacon Eggs Benedict and portion is... More

Food was first class and I enjoyed the wine list, service was prompt and efficient. However the furniture may require a spruce to match the food. A romantic venue recommend by the staff at the hotel we stayed at.

Our taxi could not find this place tucked away in a little lane way, which meant we ended up paying twice the amount. So check your taxi knows where he is going!!
