Had a lovely dinner at Royal Saigon. We had a mix of appetizer en main but mire than enough. Also had some bamboo straws to sell and encouraging to refill your water. Loved the place! Beer is also cheap!

We found out about this place on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed, the portions were great and the food was delicious, authentic Vietnamese. If we had had more time in HCMC we would have come back! Highly recommend!
