“Good food and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We went here for lunch and it was very pleasant. The service was very good and our waiter was lovely; he was only too happy to oblige when we asked him to take a photo. The food was great and there was good choice. I don't think it was over priced, but the location would have out weighed this anyway.

“Cozy location and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

I have tried almost every single dish on the menu, everything tastes great.
Try the shakes, they are the best.

“Horrible service and bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We went there for lunch and was very disappointed. The pork had more fat than meat. It was soo fatty, smelled like old pork, and I think they use lots of MSG.

One of the waiters spilled hot sauce all over my husband, and all he said was an insincere, half hearted "sorry".

I would not recommend this place.

“good service but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Cafe terrace has a nice setting and it's clean. The staff is friendly and it all looks very nice. The menu looks beautiful with lots of nice dishes but the prices are quite high. When the food arrives, it again looks very nice but in the end, isn't good enough to justify the price of it.
I do recommend it but there are many other restaurants with similar food for half the price. Drinks in particular are very over priced. An orange juice will cost more than breakfast!

“Expensive cafe with mainstream food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Expensive cafe place just next to one of the busy main roads in HCMC. Food was ok, the Vietnamese dishes a little mainstream. The menu is in English but personnel don't speak English. Overall quit ok place if you have the money.

They charge over 50000 dong for a bottle of water. About ten times the price in the store next door. Go for the beer ;)
