“The best local dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This was our favorite dinner. The waiters were very helpful with ordering and the building was itself very interesting. There is a pond in the middle of the restaurant and a stairway ladder to the second floor dining area. The fried springs rolls are definitely worth trying and the crispy tofu. You will probably need a reservation since the restaurant is small and popular among tourists and locals. They expanded across the street and so if you walk in without a reservation they will try and seat you in their new building.

“Overrated...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Visited this restaurant after reading all the reviews but i was very disappointed. Located out of no-where in a nice little building with quiet surroundings. We ordered the beef with lemongrass, caramelized pork, kang kong, fried toufu with salt & lemon sauce and springrolls. All dishes are average, nothing impressed. Beef was extremely tough and caramelized pork really has that porky taste which i hate. The only nice thing is the fruit juice which was served with honey, something unique. Price works out to be about S$40 for 3 of us, which is cheap but food is nothing exciting

“Not as good as expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

WE had pre booked but seemed to end up on a table in the reception area rather tham the main restaurant - this was way to low and very difficult to eat off.
We asked for some menu recommendations but the staff were pretty non commital/ unhelpful. In the end what we picked was pretty good but did seem overpriced compared to other HMC eatries we picked.

All a bit of a let down really

“If only the plates are not chipped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I was invited by my friends in Saigon for dinner here and it was a very, very nice treat. Food here is good and I particularly liked the atmosphere - rustic and romantic. However, I find that they should change the plates and bowls that are chipped. Almost every plate and bowl that they served food in were chipped and cracked. For a place of that stature and price that high, they need to go back to basics.
