Having heard and read loads of good things about White Sail we really thought it was going to be very good. Sadly it wasn't. Obviously the view is nice and the surroundings are clean and nicely designed but the food was nothing special, we had the grilled fish with lemongrass which was very dry and tough and the stuffed squid...

We actually ate at White Sail twice during our stay at Anh Bang and both times the food and service was faultless. The view is magic and instantly unwinds you. Fresh, delicious meals were served quickly by friendly staff. Top picks were the smoky eggplant and the green papaya salad. Top class food for a great price with an unbeatable... More

I think I possibly went with unreasonable expectations, but I'm saddened to say that overall, I was a little disappointed by my experience. Firstly, the positives - the restaurant is in a great location, with wonderful views overlooking the ocean. I think the restaurant design, whilst simple, is good. I found the seating to be very comfortable; we spent several... More

We went here to look for a place to chill. The place is wonderful with sea view. Staff are warm and welcoming. Will stay here for a whole day in my trip. However, it's hard to find the place

Definitely visit this place! Love the seafood and although we picked a rainy night to visit, locals were great and food even better. Can't go wrong!

Still sitting in the restaurant having just had one our best lunches yet and had to share. After trying a number of places on An Bang and Cua Dai this is head and shoulders above the rest. Reasonably priced and beautifully presented, I would be more than happy to go down with this ship.

Tonight we ate at the white sails and had such wonderful food. The standout dish was the smoked eggplant and stuffed squid. The moon came up across the water, very beautiful . Staff we friendly and helpful.

We have had dinner at White Sail twice and the location is beautiful. Just above An Bang beach with great views, specially at night with all lights of the fishing boats in the distance. The food was also very good, but the portions are on the small side! The first night I had to wait quite a while for my... More

Had drinks on the beach and, later, a dinner at the restaurant proper. The drinks were serviceable but not spectacular, and the food menu was extensive. The outdoor space was lovely and new and we enjoyed the view of the ocean from our table. We found the seafood dishes (salt and pepper squid, coriander prawns) preferable to the others we... More

Having visited White Sail before, the recent brush up has made wonders. Before it was good, now it is excellent. Situated a few meters above the beach, the view of the ocean and Cham Islands are great. So is the food, spotless toilets, friendy staff and nice prices. White Sail have stiff competition by many good restaurants/cafes nearby, but is... More
