We went to Skewer on the strength of TA previous reviews. We were certainly not disappointed. The “Mediterranean” menu covers the ground from Lebanon to Turkey to Greece to Italy, We did focus on the various dips and broccoli carpaccio (there was a vegetarian in the group), as well as one of their “signature dish”, 1.5kg slow-cooked ribs – we...

I eat here first time and food OK not great. I eat lamb and taste very average but very expensive. Vietnam food cheaper and more tasty. Good air condition nice service. I think romantic for date.

It was almost like having a personal waiter. The level of service was so high.We dined here some time ago and I honestly thought it could not get better. I was wrong, when something is perfect how do you improve on it, I don't know but they did it here. Somehow, the salad was crispier, the meats were more tender,... More

We were ending our 3 week Asian vacation in HCMC, and were ready for some western style food. Skewers was the perfect choice for us. The restaurant was clean, cozy and service was good. The salads and breads and hummus were all fresh and delicious. The Gyro I had was the best I have ever had. The meat was well... More

This Mediterranean restaurant is a good combination of good cozy ambience, good location, good service and good food. Almost everything in the menu is good. For the backpack budget traveller it may come out too pricey but for those who are willing to spend for a good dinner, this is a place to go as an alternative to the usual... More

I'm living in hcmc, and often use for dinner with my family, and sometimes for business dinner. This restaurant is suitable for both private and business. My favorite dishes are, pita bread with 4 dips(we can choose 4 from 10 or more), ram chop, chicken breast, spicy shrimp pasta, chicken and asparagus risotto. And served bread is also good. Clam...

It's a fine-dining restaurant in Japan town of Saigon. Everything was nice from the food to the service but my experience with Skewers was just okay, doesn't make any difference from the rest of restaurants in town.

Went in for a business dinner which was a great because I began to get tired of eating Eastern food after 2 weeks of being in Ho Chi Minh City. Thoughts on the following: Food: • Good, but average mediterranean food if you're from abroad where there are a wide selection of good food choices. • Ordered a greek salad, pesto spaghetti,...
