The food and service were both good. Definitely felt like a Vietnamese colonial setting out of the 50's - very nice. I was satisfied with pork belly with quail egg starter and light seafood special of the day but didn't sense a perfect melding of flavors or come away with an outstanding taste memory. Very good but not outstanding. The... More

We made reservations for 4 , but then were seated outside with trees poking us in the back. The hostess told us that reserved seating was out on the patio, not in the restaurant - what! There was only one other couple there when we arrived. The waiter did not get our drink orders correct either the first time or... More

Visited on a Friday night. Loud. Service was ok, food was average, service average. A less than memorable experience.

The banquet dinner has usually been a huge bore for me - but this one was very different. Tender, tasty skewered chicken to greet us with, and some deep-fried pockets of who-knew-what (but delicious). When we sat down we were served family-style, and the platters never stopped coming - goi du du tom nuong (prawns); another delicious salad (goi ga)... More

For a Vietnamese-fusion dining, this is the place.     It is located down a small side street and there is valet parking available.     It has a lovely setting - with a French-colonial motif.  Though we had a reservation, when we arrived about 6pm on a Wednesday night, there were plenty of tables available.   It was filling...

Excellent meal both times I have been there. Seafood options tend to be the best bet. Highly recommend the rib appetizers though.

great variety and very interesting dishes, we ordered a number of different dishes and shared the food family style so we got to try a number of different dishes. Everything the waiter chose was great. Did not pay so I cannot say how expensive the meal was but based on the menu prices I don't think it was more than... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended the restaurant. The atmosphere is French colonial during their time in Vietnam. The restaurant is lovely and the food delicious. Flavors are a combination of both groups and all is well done. A special diner.
