We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in HCMC and we were impressed with the quality of the food. The service was great and the food was brought out very quickly. The only thing I can complain about was the portion size. I had a Chicken dish with cashews and my partner had a Szechwan prawn dish. We... More

This was the first restaurant we tried in Ho Chi Minh and it we weren't disappointed. The food was really good and so fresh, we were warned our choices may be a bit spicy which is fine by us but nice to be told. The staff were friendly and polite but the Vietnamese struggle to understand the dining experience. Our... More

The staff were so nice and ready to answer our request. It was not too long time waiting. We were satisfied with our lunch. We came to make the mid afternoon food stop before our flight.

We went for a meal here on a recommendation - overall it was ok but not hugely exciting. I've had better vietnamese food in the UK, albeit for higher prices.

Walking back to our hotel, the Majestic, from Saigon Square in mid-afternoon, we came across this little restaurant. Surrounded by upmarket hotels such as the Rex, Continental Caravelle and Sheraton, so many restaurants in this very touristy part of town are of the bland, mass produced style. The Goldfish, while being 'modern' (air conditioning, comfortable tables and chairs) the food... More

A nice little restaurant on a side street in a busy part of HCMC with a decent range of vegetarian meals. I chose tofu and soy sauce, but then it came it was tofu in tomato sauce with a little side bowl of soy sauce. Only when I got my bill did I realise their error, but the food was... More

A very small restaurant located strategically in the center near the tourist attractions. We ordered Beef Steak and Egg for 115.000 VND and Szechuan Style Prawns for 130.000VND. Both are really sumptous. One order is good for 2 persons. The restaurant is clean but the wait staff are not so friendly. Though, the staff from the outside is really helpful.... More

This is a small place but serve good food at reasonable price. We were there late in the evening before closing time hence the waiters were able to give full attention to us. I would recommend the soft shell crab, fried brinjal, grilled prawns and ginger chicken.

I've been here a couple of times over the years. The food has been consistently good. It's popular for business meetings with asian expats..

We had just flown into HCMC (Saigon to those over 40!) and were looking for a place to have a quick supper. Just opposite our hotel in a side street just off the Main road in HCMC we found this tiny Restaurant tucked in between a Tourist shop and a Tailors. We looked in and saw a lot of local... More
