It's okey, not great.

This restaurant is near the river, the building looks great. The setting is quite nice too, with a view of the Mekong river We had a fixed menu, part of our trip. The food was okay, mostly for the western taste. If you want Vietnamese food, look elsewhere. The great thing about this restaurant is... read more

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation of our guide. Sat by the river it give you great views. There is no air conditioning but plenty of standing fans to keep you cool while your dining. If you are feeling adventurous then try the Snake Spring Rolls. If not the Morning Glory with garlic and Pumpkin Flower Fritters are delicious.... More

We where 3 persons and would say that 50% of the food was ok and 50% poorly made, and that's just not good enough. The staff also seemed confused and uninterested although there were only 5-7 guests there.

The food here was quite good (I recommend the egg-fried noodles), although quite expensive for Vietnamese prices; in the evenings it is bustling with visitors. The view is quite good, too.

Nice setting restautant at the old market by cantho riverside. I ordered sour soup with shrimps and taste was not authentic Vietnamese as I tried some places before. Local BGi beer was cold that I liked and the view. Thats's it. Really don't bother again If you need real taste of Vietnameser food. You may find somewhere else

This restaurant is located right along the river so it has prime real estate. Great view, cool breeze, clean, right in Ben Ninh Kieu so there's a lot to see and do if you're a tourist. However, food and drink here is NOT authentic I brought my nieces (who live in Can Tho) for a treat. They said nothing we... More

Benoit P, Owner at Sao Hom, responded to this review

Dear Nlt15, Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you have read other reviews you know we prefer to spice our dishes down a notch and put the spices on the table so everyone can tune them to their liking. This is not the authentic way. The authentic way is to spice them to the owner's liking... More
