This restaurant was recommended by the concierge of he hotel as it's a few minutes walk away. It claimed as one of the top 50 restaurants in Asia. Vegetarian options are also available. Traditional Vietnamese selection with no surprise element.

I returned with friends and colleagues to this restaurant. Last time had the set menu which offered a variety of nicely crafted Vietnamese food prepared mostly for show. The food was good and so I decided to return... We ordered off the Ala-Carte menu Alcoholic drinks, juice, and three different items which included: Pho with Chicken and Egg noodles Seafood... More

A window seat overlooking Nguyen Hue on Saturday is full of colour and lights. Excellent service. Great flavours. But you pay for the view.

Restaurant was scruffy, in bad state of repair and over-priced. Staff were far from friendly; they looked fed-up and tired. We were recommended far too much food - the waiter suggested 4 different dishes between two of us - far more than we could eat. He also suggested 2 portionsof rice, even though there was enough for 3 or 4... More

The service was efficient but not warm and friendly. The decor was good and there was a lady playing a stringed instrument which provided a nice setting. The food was ok. Nothing terrible but not amazing either.

On our last night in HCMC we dined at Lemongrass and WOW. Service was fantastic, and food just as good. Sure it was not a busy night, but we had staff on hand to make sure the experience was one to remember. I would recommend this to anyone who likes good food and service at a reasonable cost.

Lemongrass chef is cooking a lot of lemongrass in the menu and I like is, so that is already a plus. Go for the lemongrass appetiser which has a good mix of different starters and sauces. I choose a relative safe dish: lemongrass chicken with fried rice and it was awesome. wonderful gravy, the chicken was juicy and good quality... More

An average dining experience awaits, with each choice on the menu, not dazzling us or becoming something to talk about. The service was ok, but nothing special. Vietnamese restaurants really need ask themselves what will make them standout amongst all on offer in this delightful city of culinary delights. Near enough is not good enough when there is so much... More

I was there with a mixed group: foreigners and Vietnamese from both the North and the South and we all thought the food was very good! Service was efficient and the atmosphere was nice. Can't fault it.
