Expensive but good!

Okay, so this place is certainly expensive - but when you're really craving a juicy medium rare steak cooked to perfection with a delicious sauce and sides, this place hits the spot! Good service and pleasant ambiance too.

I went there with a friend on another friend recommendation,and I was not disappointed. Food was great and so was the service. Ask for the waiter Martin,and he can give you good food recommendation, and provide excellent service. We were lucky to get a seat because the restaurant was packed. Better to pre book your seat before going there,otherwise you... More

Yeah, this is an expensive place to eat but it was definitely worth it. I had the burger which was excellent, gill had the steak which was amazing. Wine list was superb but costly. Would definitely go back.

Can't believe why anyone would want to spend these prices when you can get such wonderful food in the city for so much less! When I saw a glass of house wine was £8 and a ribeye steak £30 I decided to eat elsewhere.

Ridiculous pricing, even for District 1. Not hard to find a good steak elsewhere, without getting bent over.

Friends in Ho Chi Minh pre-booked this restaurant for 2015 New Year Eve celebration and we were invited on the day of arrival at HCM. They told me that this restaurant is famous for its steak, which I ordered and indeed very good ! We were allocated at 4th floor of restaurant on that day, which is pretty private !
