Nice place with special interior design. They offer traditional local food but pimped up to a real treath. Great choice of tasteful dishes. A bit more pricy than other places but it is worth it. Lunch for 2 : 5 plates, cocktails for 750.000 VND.

We went to this roof top restaurant after a recommendation and reading good reviews. It was nicely set up and was really pretty at night but we found it overpriced and the food was average. We had much better food for a much lower price...More

Despite the fact that you have to climb so many stairs to arrive at your table, it was worth it. The decoration is so peaceful and the food tasted like home. I will surely come back.
