Location is real good, nice small terace above the river, and nice decoration. Service is good but not really fluent in english. They have a big menu, so its not easy to decide. We had gsrlic bread, tomato soup, tofu with chili and prawns with mango. The meal was good and better than smaller restaurants in Cantho, but the price... More

Dear ChaletsTorreNova, Thank you fro taking the time to write. Yes, the place is noce, and we love it too --it now has flower beds under the handrail to help alleviate risks for the smaller children. It also attracts wedding photographers. We are cooking with clean water and in general sticking to quality procedures, and it does come at some... More

If you like to sit at a place where you can enjoy the food, drink some bottles of beer while enjoying the fresh air around the river bank; this restaurant definately is the place you must come

We had a lovely evening at this restaurant. The staff were friendly and service was prompt without being suspicious. Tomato soup, squid with lemongrass and the tofu with chilli were all lovely. Came to approx $20 australian! Would definitely return

Restaurant was on the riverside and food tasty and good value. Given our experience, we are surprised that some reviews are not good.

Dear madam, Thank you for your appreciation, this is what we strive for. Many travelers venture into Cần Thơ for different experiences, and we would be hard-pressed to please eveyone. We have also given uneven service at times, but we are trying and tuning, and hopefully giving a steady service over time. The Sao Hôm is meant to be a... More

Ate here on our single night in Can Tho. The restaurant is on the side of the river with great views. The place was packed on our arrival but deserted when we left and we ate at 8:30pm. The food was OK but nothing special and the menu confused to say the least. The place had no locals in only... More

Ate here a couple of times whilst we were in Can Tho. The food was tasty and the portions were good. The friend pumpkin flowers were yum! It was a convenient location to our hotel (Kim Long) and the price was reasonable. Plenty of things on the menu for a veggie too.

It's hard to find good food in Can Tho. We were a little surprised given how fabulous we have found the food in Vietnam. This restaurant has a lovely setting but we basically found the food inedible. There was little care in the preparation and presentation and the flavours just weren't there. Charming staff so we felt rather awful walking... More

Very good atmosphere and location by the riverside. The Sao Hom serves Vietnamese traditional food with all kinds. The sweet and sour soup was really nice. It was worth value for what i have paid.

Our guide tipped us this place. We went early to get a good seat but your groups had reserved everything decent. Good selection of Vietnamese and Western food. 7 year old demolished his pasta. Vegetarian daughter happy with her stuff. Family happy but not overwhelmed for price. Safe choice.

Had stuffed pumpkin flower, mekong style spring rolls, makong style fish soup and green papaya salad. All were just wonderful. The place is nicely situated by the river
