I definitely will comeback here. Special thanks to Ms. Nhi who assisted us during our meal. She was so nice attentive and helpful. Food was amazing, especially the Ceasar salad with chicken and seafood pizza. Everything was perfect.

We took the short walk from our hotel at Saigon Plaza (see separate review) to Basilico which sits within the Intercontinental Hotel. We had starters and mains which were very generous.

The chefs from Basilico need to walk down the road to Ciao Bella and see how real Italian food is cooked.

We stopped in here for a quick lunch. I had the seabass and my friend had the seafood platter. Everything was pretty flavorless and there was no sauce like lemon butter or something to go with the grilled seafood. The bread was the best part of the meal haha

We were staying at the Intercontinental Hotel and decided to eat at one of the restaurants at the hotel.Good choice. The sea bass was wonderful and the restaurant was quiet and elegant.
