Fantastic, reasonably priced Vietnamese food. Great service by English-speaking staff. Great atmosphere. If here in the dry season, or during Tet (New Year), sit on the sidewalk and people watch. Best place in Ho Chi Minh City for it.

springrolls were dry, small, mostly starch, stuffing very minimal. Very slow to process paying for group of individuals -should have more support for such.More

We went to this restaurant as part of a large tour group and got some of the woest service we have ever got in terms of the food coming out late. Our group was 15 people and we all ordered within the same 5 minutes....To give you an indication of how disorganised and uncoordinated they were in bringing out our food, over half of our group got their main dishes before we got our appetiser. They got their appetisers 45min before we got our appetisers, and had finished their mains by the time our food, including the appetiser, arrived. The dishestimate we ordered were all the same as those other people in the group who got the same food exactly 45min earlier. What excuse, if they're cooking us the same food, do they have for the big gap between when it arrived? We asked if we could get our drinks for free as we had to wait so long and we also held our group up. They said no and offered us free flan as the only compensation for the ludicrous waiting time on our food. If we had been diabetic or allergic to flan, then this would mean we got nothing at all for having waited so long and holding up everyone else. The food was all medicore apart from the flan (custard dessert) which was disgusting and which we would have sent back if it wasn't a freebie anyway. We had spring rolls and fried rice but have had much much better quality of both these at other places. They were edible but we don't like wasting the chance of a good meal on a mediocre restaurant, let alone one that wastes so much of our limited time as tourists. Do yourself a favour and find somewhere better organised to eat.More

Authentic, affordable, delicious Vietnamese food. To drink I had watermelon and mango juice which were both freshly squeezed and presented beautifully. I had the vegetable curry, the stir fried veggies, the eggplant, and the noodles and veggies. All dishes were very tasty with excellent seasoning...and we'll presented. We ordered 2 authentic Vietnamese desserts that I've never had before but were delicious. The ambiance is quaint and the waiters understand English. I really enjoyed this restaurant!More

We wanted a good simple meal and stumbled across the Goldfish restaurant. It is small, friendly, with a tatty but extensive illustrated menu with clear descriptions. The friendly English speaking waiter was very helpful and we selected crab and vegetable spring rolls and an excellent...filling noodle soup with two beers. The waiter advised that that would be sufficient..., and it was. We noticed that at a table they had ordered a dish served in a coconut. We decided to return next evening and try it. We reordered the same excellent spring rolls, a squid soup and the coconut containing minced pork and fried rice (it was somewhat dry for our taste) There are many good restaurants in the city but for Vietnamese food there is no better place for a tasty meal in the simple straightforward Goldfish restaurant - so 5 stars.More

During our 4 day stay in HCMC we went 2 times to this gem close to our hotel in the center ( Saigon Prince Hotel ). Especially the young lady serving us was very helpful, very friendly and always with a big smile. Good food...and excellent service. Ronald and Myriam, BEMore

Food amazing. The staff here are wonderful and really make you feel welcome. They have some English speaking staff to help you to order and interact with the staff who don’t speak English. This makes the experience more enjoyable and fun. The food is delicious...and authentic, you can ask for anything like extra chilli or no capsicum or more sauce and they will accommodate. Don’t be shy to ask. Wonderful atmosphere, and been around for over 20 years. Thank you for a delicious and Devine dining experience 😍More

We walked on the street and were introduced by a friendly staff. We went to the 2 floor. The design was classic and cossy. But we did not find any window and the air was too suffocating. The dessert was nice. We think the restaurant...should improve many things to give better experience for customers.More
