“Best View While Sipping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Really love Shri.... Been there many times during my visit. Dinner was good but we preferred sitting and sipping instead... after long day of wandering around town, we met up at Shri for some chitchat and drinks for relaxation. Rooftop view was really great to see "Saigon at night".

“Awesome place for dinner and sight seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have been to this resto twice, both are very pleasing experiences for me. Great appetizers and entree, never try any desert there since my stomach capacity is limited :)
The service is very good, the waiters are very welcoming. The pricing is a bit high compares with other resto, but you can have a package of a great, warm, romantic dinner with candles and sigh seeing the whole city from above...two in one, so i think its kinda worth the price :)

“Fantastic view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Dinner in Shri was so nice when you can have an awesome view from the rooftop so the street of Saigon. It was nice ambiance. Apart from that, nothing was so special to me. Food was average, beverage also. Somehow, can be quiet boring if you don't have friends to keep you entertained. It should be a live music scene which will perfect the atmosphere.

“Outstanding views, make for a memorable night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Located in the first outside ring of the City center, Shri provides one of the best views of Downtown Saigon. You should try to maximize the experience booking an outside table with city views in advance.

Not only the views are good, the restaurant design is extremely nice and it has been copies widely since.

As per the food, it is always fresh and well prepared, although I would appreciate a little bit more of innovation or imagination, as most of the dishes are standard in the restaurants in Saigon.

Staff is efficient albeit they feel somehow cold and stiff. I would advice management to spare some training into making them more relaxed and elegantly friendly.

It has a wine list well fitted to the dishes offered.

Of course the place is pricey, but as much as many other restaurants who offer a far lesser experience.

Indeed, Shri offers all to make a perfect soiree with a special one or to impress favourably a visiting friend.

“Best view in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Had the pleasure of dining here with friends last night who had organised a 5 course mini degustation with matching wines to go with the corner table (best seat in the house). Food was extremely good but it was the wine that shone, matched perfectly to the food. The Ocio Pinot from Chile's Cono Sur winery the definite standout of the evening. Super Suzie gave us a tour of the wine cellar.
This place is the best food in town along with the best view at night. D yourself a favour.
Thanks Ash for putting the menu and evening together and taking time out to come up and as hi to explain the menu and matchings.
