I went there last week, food is bad but too much expensive, just come there for sight seeing and drink, relax with fresh air from the river but DO NOT COME THERE TO EAT.

I went there with my Vietnamese co worker, he refused to eat the food. After we finish he went to buy noodles. Food is not terrible, just not tasty and very expensive. I had a good natural juice and nice salad, rest of food wasn't tasty. Location is great, in the docks. I stayed there only one night in can... More

Romantic restaurant, good service but bad food and too expensive price. We try beef steak with pepper sauce with 240.000 VND, just apprentice with travellers. For me not again!

Whenever we want to go out and can't agree on where to go, our fall back restaurant is Sao Hom. We enjoy the coolness of the riverside restaurant, its rich wood and warm décor, its fairly clean restroom, and its attentive servers. What keeps us from picking this restaurant is the lackluster food and high prices. Mind you, the food... More

We ate here after the long bus ride from Ho Chi Minh and probably only picked the place because we were too zonked to bother looking for something better. I had a thai style dish that was loaded with lemon grass. My wife had zucchini flowers. Hers was bland, mine was good. The food was very overpriced but at least... More

Excellent food, especially the spring rolls were our favorite. Beautiful setting along the Can Tho river. Friendly staff complete the picture. Excellent choice for a nice dinner in Can Tho!

My wife took the river taxi down from our hotel and were basically dropped right out the front of this place. It's in a beautiful old building open directly onto the river so if you can reserve a table out the front or on the little jetty. We were walk ins so got a decent enough table. Prompt service. Reasonable... More

Location is perfect, very atmospheric and great views of the river. Staff is friendly and very efficient. Food however is quite expensive and not too special. I would recommend this place for a drink, but would advise to have a nice Vietnamese diner somewhere else.

We ate here with a 20 person tour group. They served us an excellent seafood hot pot and lots of fresh veggies including pumpkin flower and morning glory, seasoned with lemongrass. It did not seem like tourist food at all. Sao Hom is located at one end of a municipal park on the river. Many families come out for a... More
