So much so, my travel partner and I were feeling a bit queasy a few hours later. We obviously did not order the right... More

Ok, so, I'm not a big seafood eater unless it's battered and fried and Cod. So for me to rave about the food here is a big deal for me. I tried fresh water snails with toasted garlic which blew me away! I had to overcome the yuk factor to pull the snail out of its shell but once he... More

This restaurant can get REALLY busy at night. Which means that even though they have quite many staff, their attentiveness and service can be quite minimised pertaining to individual. Overall a lively place as many big groups and families around. Doesn't charge for wet tissue and no get/service charge for me. Its open air not air-conditioned, but the night air... More

We had tried many seafood chains and restaurants in HCMC, having said that, not many are truly satisfying - it was because either the prices were too high, or the food is not up to our expectations! But I personally love this Hong Hai Seafood - the pricing is reasonable, the seafood is fresh, the environment is classy and comfy... More

I discovered this restaurant after looking for seafood restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city. I was totally happy with the range of different shells, crabs, snails, lobsters proposed. What i chose was very well cooked with nice sauces and delicious. It was a pleasure to have dinner there many times
