About
San Fu Lou_ The house of three blessings. At our restaurant, we provide great tasty food, healthy cooking techniques and hygiene. At SFL, we take the traditional concept of a Chinese kitchen and bring it to a new level of sophistication with a contemporary Oriental ambience replete with the colours and material of a traditional Chinese "house". Our show kitchen, which is a first in Vietnam for a Chinese restaurant, allows diners to take in a visual feast before the food is served. This kitchen shows the guests the extensive Chinese influences which can be found in the Vietnamese culinary heritage today.These include the use of bean curd, stir-frying food, the use of chop-stick and wok, and so

Can't believe that a restaurant would still, in 2020, be serving shark fin soup. Obviously a chain of restaurants with no soul or care for the environment and the world around them. Shocking. Will never even think about returning here. Disgusting.

I was invited to have lunch in this fine restaurant where I planned to visit but hadnt done before. Firstly, I was so happy that the staff were supportive to accept my request for advance cashless payment on behalf of my partner. They showed their...very fast service given to the customers’ orders while the tables were almost full at the time we were dining there. Secondly, food quality came over expectation. Dishes were well prepared and cooked with less oil than other Cantonese restaurants did. I especially was amazed by the Char Siu in San Fu Lou which is very tender and not too much fatty, it was manageably and sufficiently marinated by the chef in my opinion. (maybe I’m kinda of not liking salty ones :)))More

Nice decor and location but the prices are way too high for what you get. You pay a premium prices for teenage cooks. This place needs experienced cooks, not kids. The food quality is way below the quality and portions. The quality is barely better...than street food but three times the cost. There is a good reason why they stay open until 3am when no other restaurants are open.More

i decided to dine in this place after reading all the good reviews but was a disappointed after visiting the restaurant 1st the wait staff was not attentive to customer they seem to be interested in playing their phone or talking among the group i...understand that at 3pm was not crowded but as a service staff you are here to work not come here to chit chat n play with phone 2nd one of the waitress took all the condiment away while we are wailing for our food to arrive i didn’t stop them i thought they took it to refill the sauces they didn’t bring it back to the tables. 3rd the food wasn’t up to the standard as it good review mention and the portion was small it was a bad choice to come here to dine i rather go somewhere for dim sum for the price n good serviceMore

Well prepared to perfection the Cantonese duck, also the other things had been delicious. This is a great restaurant for eating late, the most crowded it was around 23:00! Ice tea was with little white flowers, very tasty.
