I visited this restaurant with a group of friends. The view is very good (especially from the roof top) but the price for food was in Vietnam on the higher end. When we received the food, it was fantastic. BUT to get the food for the complete group took more then 15 minutes. It was not nice to wait until... More

Lemongrass was reserved for us by our tour guide. We ate Satay Chicken and Sea Bass and Morning Glory (a vegetable) and 2 beers. The food was good . But it was one of our most expensive meals, by far, in all of Vietnam. Beautiful restaurant, dressed up servers, nice views. (If you’re into views try Bitexco Tower) We had... More

Tucked in a small side street a few steps from the main shopping street. Quite a disappointing decor, some stains on the tablecloth... my expectations were not high. But the food was excellent and the service very attentive. An extensive menu of salads, meats and seafood - all delicious.

I first went here in 2006, the food was great then & it still is but the whole place needs a clean! The stair carpet is disgusting, looks as though it's never been cleaned, grubbly paintwork too.

even the simplest Pho is quite tasteless with little to recommend it. The meals are expensive and undeservedly so. It is recommended by so many, but none of us at dinner that night - and we came from a range of countries - were impressed. Cook had a bad day perhaps?

Going up in the lift to this hotel restaurant does seem rather a tourist escapade and indeed the fellow diners are mostly tourists. However the food is very good and the service excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending a visit.
