I can only speak for breakfast!

Breakfast was included with my hotel room, but I did not eat there at all for lunch and dinner so I can not speak for that. However, breakfast buffet was splendid, I ate enough to keep me filled until dinner. The staff was very friendly, but did not speak much english.

A typical hotel restaurant with overpriced food that to me is last resort dining. Nothing special on the menu, but filled with a lot of names of food items.

Couldn't ask for anything more . The staff were friendly and helpful ensuring we enjoyed our meals and stay. In fact one of the younger staff spent time showing us how to use chopsticks

We had a lunch there. The food isn't nothing special and my husband ordered a beer, which was so warm. They said they don't have cold beer at all in this moment. And the place tries to be a luxury... You can buy a cold beer in any place in Saigon - but not here.

We had the buffet lunch here. Great attentive service and a good choice of dishes. A bit expensive but I'd go back.

We were excited to come here for breakfast after noticing that they served breakfast until 11am. We arrived at 9:45am and were shown a table where we ordered a coffee each. Service was almost non existent, a waiter finally arrived with our coffee almost 10 minutes after ordering and we asked for the breakfast menu. The waiter informed us that... More

This visit was for nostalgia and not necessarily for the food. It is not how I remember it from 40 years ago, but that was a different time. It sure brought back good memories. However, there are good changes and improvements from those days. The menu is more extensive and the service is better. I had my old favorite of... More

This place broke my heart. When indulging in a literary tour through Saigon HCMC this week, I expected that the Continental was to be a highlight. Not so much. I love faded colonial splendour, and the photos of courtyard dining at the Continental, along with reviews on this site, heightened my expectations. It was dreary dreary dreary. I don't mind...

The Palace Restaurant exudes elegance when we dined on dim sum our last weekend in Ho Chi Min City. The Peking duck was delicious as well as several other entrees we ordered. The Maitre d' was very helpful with helping us choose our selected dishes. A wonderful restaurant where children were entertained as well.
