Nicest place in HCM city

The place just changed it's name from Monsoon to TUI THAI Eatery and from the look of the old pictures here on Tripadvisor it has become alot nicer now. Definately the nicest place we have seen in our two week trip to Vietnam (including 5 days in HCM city). Apart from the look of the place the food... read more

Love the atmosphere here, clean and good service. But I gotta be honest that the Thai wasn't that good. It's average I think. I ordered Pad Thai, if you love authentic Thai food you know that it's should taste a bit sour too not just sweet. I also tried the Mango sticky rice, but also didn't taste as good as... More

By day 5 we were missing spice and so ordered Thai dishes. Super food. Fresh ingredients with just the right amount of Zing. Good service a hallmark across Vietnam. The menu spans the region and there are lots of options even for a vegetarian.

On a stroll from our hotel we arrived at this restaurant. We were there at lunch time and the restaurant was half occupied, all locals and judging from their dress business people. Food and service were very good, so a recommendable place to go.

The restaurant offers a good selection of food from Indochina countries, which was a rare find. Nice setting on the ground floor looking out to the courtyard, while the first floor is good for families with young children. Located very close to the Pullman hotel.

I wanted a restaurant that serves a mix of Asian meals and the concierge at my hotel recommended this lovely place. Maybe because I arrived before the dinner rush hour, it was simply good service overall. The menu with a selection of dishes from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand makes one spoilt for choice, but the staff made it... More

Great food though a bit expensive. However, this place has lacked the energy and buzz we typically like.
