We have been in the place. A contemporary look and proper setup. Food is excellent for a typical central part of Vietnam as its name. We tried quite many different dishes and all were delicious and eventually ...with excellent desserts. Corkage fee was also reasonable....Only a minor issue for my 'small' spicy beef soup, it was tasty but the soup was not hot enough. It could be that I added too many herbs and condiments. Thank you for great service. Highly recommended, will return soon before flying off the country.More

The restaurant offers good vietnamese and french cuisines reasonably priced given the atmosphere and the services. Photo opportunities everywhere inside the house and on the plates. Their onion soup is what I miss most!

There is a wide selection of authentic Vietnamese foods which are delicious prepared and properly presented by the attentive wait staff. We ordered 16 items which were all delicious including the snails. You will not only enjoy the food but also the homey atmosphere and...the price as well. I think this is by far the best restaurant I have found in Ho Chi Minh City.More

This restaurant is by my office and I come here frequently when I have business lunches. The place is clean and the food is good. The prices are a bit on the high side and the portions could be larger, but if you like central...Vietnamese cuisine, this is one of the best in the city. I also highly recommend the gelato ice cream shop within the restaurant too. They have probably the best ice cream in town.More

Easily the best restaurant in town ... why ? Authentic, tasty, finely cooked, dressed well and above all - fragrant due to wonderful spice and ingredients... we ordered both vegetarian and non vegetarian... dessert menu was also too good ... don’t even think of missing...this restaurant !!! It is a fine dining place and price is moderately higher in the range of 20$ .More

Had a wonderful dinner here - highly suggest getting a taster of all the different types of rolls and the pho is also amazing. was with vietnamese local superstars so ordering was left in their very capable hands. The desserts are incredible both western and...vietnamese. and of course there was an incredible gelato and ice lolly parlour. (this would be heaven for kids - for the parents, well good luck after the meal!)More
