This cafe/restaurant was a perfect choice for us on a recent visit to Can Tho. It is in a great location (opposite the Ho Chi Minh statue on the waterfront). Food was fantastic, we had the Vietnamese Pancake, which was divine and a chicken and rice dish. Then we had banana and chocolate crepes and passionfruit creme brulee. The owner... More

We went to Mekong Inn for dinner on the first day of a two day Mekong Delta trip and just wanted good food after a long and exhausting day so we followed the lonely planet recommendation and were absolutely happy with this decision. We had two large beer, fried wonton, spring rolls and two banh xeo. The food was very... More

We had a very late dinner here while staying at the Nam Bo Boutique Hotel further along the river. Rather surprised to read the bad reviews as we found the food to be good, tasty and incredibly good value. We started off with Spring Rolls, followed by a clay pot with a couple of beers. The restaurant, even at gone... More

But if you want to taste more a small authentic place, then this can suite you. We also had a nice chat in relatively good English with the owner. He is now an older man,... More

Fortunately for me I look at the cleanliness of any restaurant before I decide to go and eat there and also the amount of people inside, needless to say there were very few patrons and the place just looked plain dirty. The exotic smells from the street didn't do much for my appetite.

I worked for 3 years to save enough to go to Vietnam on the trip of a lifetime and on DAY 3 of my 3 week trip grabbed a quick bite here with my partner and it completely ruined what was supposed to be an amazing holiday. We had to travel up to the north of the country with excrutiating... More

Rice was dry, shrimp was overcooked, clay pot catfish tasted muddy. Service was awfully slow. It was my worst dining experience. I am so surprised this place got three stars! Wait staff did not seem to care.

I went there for lunch with my partner, my food was almost inedible, the special rolls were not special, they lacked flavor, the corn side dish tasted like it had been frozen and then microwaved, again, no tasre at all, i ate about 1/4 of the order and stopped
