Highly recommended by TA. Pleasant restaurant interior but the food portions are tiny and over priced for what you get. Bad value for money and still hungry leaving the restaurant.More

Mandarine Restaurant is an old time favorite of companies entertaining guests as well as travelers visiting Ho Chi Minh City. It's a fine dining restaurant serving Vietnamese cuisine tailored for non-Vietnamese nationals. What is unique is that the dipping sauces are homemade mostly from beans which give flavor acceptable to foreigners. The food is created with a story itself of Vietnam being a destination which can be reflected in the traditional decorations served together on the plates. Mandarine is known for its taste and beauty on the dish.
