What can I say more than sickening, because that's exactly what happened to everyone who was in my group that ate here.

So we wanted to try a little something different so found this place on trip advisor... what an experience!! We had crickets (very tasty), scorpions (quite bland) and bulls penis and balls (VERY STRANGE TASTE!!) The waiters were very friendly. They had so many things...on the menu, my partner had bbq ostrich and cuttlefish which was very nice. Overall a great find and definitely worth a visit if you want to try something a bit different!More

There is a lot of interesting food(for exapmle crocodile), but it is really expensive and you don't get much food. I can't recommend it.

This restaurant is great for those who want to try exotic dishes. We had crocodile, crickets, scorpion and eel which arrived shortly after ordering it. They all came accompanied by various sauces and fresh herbs and vegetables. We were seated very fast and the waiter...was very attentive, he even noticed when the ice in my glass had melted and he offered me another ice cube. Most of the clients were locals, but the menu was also in English and we could easily communicate with the staff.More

The restaurant is open plan and has an extensive menu. We ordered food which came out wrong. The BBQ prawns are nothing special neither is the beef. The place is a beef restaurant. There is nothing special or nice to write about this place. The...food is poorly executed and the presentation is awful. Was not impressed. What is interesting is that the waiter takes it personal when you question his cooking. Yes the waiter cooks the food.More

What can I say. This was just a great eating experience! We were recommended to try here by our tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed it. We ordered a variety of dishes all of which were excellent and took in the buzzing atmosphere.

If you haven't, the thought alone might be intimidating. But if you have, you'd know that that little punka** ain't gonna do anything but crunch under your jaw. This place serves fried scorpion for about $1 each with the scopion well intact to pysche you...out. Once you realize the experience is all mental then you're ready. Good luck ;)More

Great place to try local food. Caters to expats. A large variety of usual Vietnamese food as well as some exotic items like crickets and scorpions. Great service. Nothing fancy but a fun atmosphere. Not a place to take yourself seriously. Just come and relax...and enjoy the local scene. Drink a few local beers and grill some meat. Definitely worth the trip.More

I was here during my Vietnam vacation in Saigon and I felt welcomed right at the instant I was dropped off at the entrance. The waiters and staff are very friendly, and they do what it takes to keep their customers comfortable. There are some...very exotic dishes on the menu, and most of them are very well-priced and super-tasty. For those that are more adventurous, there are some intimidating names of dishes such as "soup of goat balls" etc but I cam promise you - there will be no disappointment. And the receptionist, when not busy, will be glad to take your pictures, make recommendations, and keep you well-informed of what you're eating. I ordered the spicy sparrow and pigeon, and ended up licking my plate, for real! And the prices are reasonable for the exotic-ness of the foods. The time taken to serve the dishes, though a bit long, is MORE THAN WELL WORTH it for the taste and quality of what's served. There are affordable drinks and interesting soccer games on TV to keep you busy while waiting. I DEFINITELY recommend this as a MUST-SEE to any foreign (or local) tourist in Ho Chi Minh City that has a sense of food adventures and is looking for something exotic, filling, and tasty without breaking the bank.More

We stumbled upon this place after getting slightly lost and turning the wrong way on the street our hotel was situated on. What a lucky find, we nearly walked past, but the place was packed and the smells were amazing. The menu was equally amazing...with some very odd things on offer, but don’t let that put you off. We chose some beef and pork, they bring this to your table uncooked, along with a miniature bbq and you cook it yourself. We had a great evening here, plenty of cold tiger beer and an experience to remember. Highly recommended.More

Pretty sure you will be able to - though they serve beer etc. explain it's a special occasion and you've brought a special bottle all the way from Oz. Have fun.
