Appetizing and exotic regional foods and fringe art

An interesting selection of somewhat unfamiliar foods from the region (vietnam, cambodia, laos, thailand, myanmar). a great education amidst some a equally curious collection of fringe paintings and sculptures.

I think the chef was not very happy on the evening of our visit. our order came fast but the food did not leave any distinct mark on pallet or on my mind. Service was good. Parking has always been a worry whenever u plan to visit this place. So ya, in all, only a 2 star experience!!!

It was walking distance from my hotel so I just went there without reservation - but reservation is advised. Staff is very very friendly and nice - that is what I liked most about the restaurant. The place is nice and comfortable - not too trendy but well decorated. Food was OK. I have had much better SE food elsewhere.... More

We use TA a lot and had read the mostly positive reviews, however Monsoon did not meet our expectations. We found most of the food to be tasteless. One in our party was served after everyone else had finished, and only when the waiter came back with a picture of the dish to confirm the order. Overpriced and overrated.

This was just round the corner from our hotel and we decided to visit we did not book (evening meal) an we just managed to get a table - would recommend booking in advance. It was women's day when we ate there and my girlfriend was given a free drink and flower as soon as we were seated - great... More

We enjoyed a lovely family dinner here. A great selection of dishes from Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. While you can definitely eat cheaper in many of the street restaurants surrounding still it's a very affordable option. We enjoyed a couple of cocktails, drinks with dinner, entrees, mains and dessert all for a little over $110 aud equivalent for... More

On Business in Ho Chi Minh - was recommended by a Welcomer at Pullman Centre Saigon Hotel and he was right on the money!! Short walk to a well run establishment with great selection of food. The 2 x Starter / Share Plates are very good value. Ended up going back again and would recommend to all.

Aside from large hotel restaurants, many places around town ar ho hum. This place is not! Nicely decorated, quiet, and calm the setting was excellent. The food was very good, the portions on the small side but the sauces were excellent. Service was good but not great. This was one of the better meals from 12 days in Vietnam. Worth... More

The design of this place is good, cozy and modern. We tried many dishes but the taste may not suite for us, not seasoning very well

We had no booking and arrived about 8pm. The restaurant was not full. At the door was one member of the team who welcomed us very friendly and offered us a choice of tables. The Restaurant looks good and I liked the decor. It looks very fresh. The menus offers food from the region and each country has its own... More
