“Great seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Not sure why more people have not found and tried this gem. It has a great selection of live creatures in tanks. The extensive menu has pictures so you just have to point. Yes you will have to look twice at the prices...they are that cheap. The food was very well cooked and tasty. The service was attentive. Seems one staff was totally dedicated to topping up your beer with fresh ice. Was there at lunch time and it teamed down rain. They had a staff member at the kerb with a big beach umbrella escorting guests from their taxis and cars into the restaurant. Now that's service for you! Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys really good fresh seafood. Would be going back again next trip.

“Best Seafood value and taste plus no stomach ache :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I come from a family of fishermens so freshness and tasty seafood is something that I am most picky about. This place hands down is a must if you love seafood. Service is supreme and attentative, very important when eating mudcrabs, prawns etc.... this will be on my must do everytime i go to HCMC... my partner tends to order all the expensive seafood so this place amazed me even more when the bill came out ( cheap as chips) ... This place is so GREAT!!!!!! A must visit... I asked the waitress to recommend and everything was great..mudcrab was a standout

“Beautiful seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Dinned here with friends and the food certainly didn't disappoint. We ordered the Seafood Platter for two and wow! I reckon three if not four people could share this platter! The seafood was cooked to perfection. We had a few cocktails each which seemed to get stronger but were also delicious. Staff were friendly and provided exception service.

“Terrific Seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This very large restaurant is the place to go for perfectly prepared seafood. The Guarami (the
most expensive fish) was steamed to perfection. The squid was cooked very well and the sauces
were very tasty. The service is standard Vietnamese.....that is, very good. The menu lists many
fish and other seafood items that we've hardly ever heard of......several types of crab, conch,
clams, etc. Not the least expensive restaurant in HCMC, but a good value for what you get.
