Went here for a late dinner on the advice of a local - always a good indicator - and were not disappointed. There is an ambitiously long menu which you either browse through at length (my advice is to get a long drink whilst doing so) or you take one of the set menus on trust - which is what... More

Very extensive menu and all at a very reasonable price. Staff are good but not overly friendly. Decor is clean cafe style with little ambiance.

The place was not busy and service was OK. Cafe style restaurant same as many other in Saigon. Quite a large menu so choice is good. Spring rolls were pretty average and were fine but not really that great, just fine. Sweet and sour chicken main course was excellent, very tasty and a reasonable size portion. Rice portion was very... More

Revisited the restaurant while staying at the Liberty Central Riverside. Not changed much in the last four years - still looks a bit average, same "Maitre D" but think the menu is more extensive. Service was quick. A meal for two - starter, two main courses (1 was vegetarian), rice (which you need to order separately) and two beers came... More

Despite some of the recent reviews saying food was bland, we took a chance and came here for Vietnamese hot pot. We found it to be flavourful and actually very delicious! It was a really enjoyable dinner on a rainy night. We also ordered a claypot pork, and sliced pork belly which were all very tasty. Although the proprietor was... More

Close to Renaissance, Vietnamese food and free wifi were my requirements. I found this restaurant clean and was surprised at the variety on the menu. I tried a chicken/crab/mushroom soup and spring rolls. Very tasty. Prices were affordable too. Good choice for my first meal in Vietnam.

Friendly staff with an English menu that was easy to use. Service was quick and efficient. The food wasn't bad, but it didn't pop, either. Good taste with a large enough portion, but we ate at many more places on HCMC that were truly standouts. This just wasn't special in any way. We were the only people there who were... More

On our first day our Vietnamese family members took us here for a large family lunch and My father, my partner and I returned for dinner 2 days later. We loved the food and enjoyed the experience, I did think the service was a little lacking and could improve but some of this could be my expectations coming from a... More
