We ate three courses here quite late on a Friday night. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was lovely- simple but well cooked and reasonably priced. Nice surroundings on the river, away from some of the hustle and bustle. Would recommend!

Ate both lunch and dinner here. Appeared to be clean and food was reasonable. Did not get sick so that is always a plus. Nice selection of food. Had fried rice with chicken and banana flower fritters both great. Also had shrimp in coconut with mango it was great as well. Everything was very fresh and good. Staff on their... More

This is the worst dinner experience we had in Vietnam. Tourist trap. Hair in the food and the chicken dishes were bad quality chicken meat with partial bones, skin and lots of fat. We had much better sautéed chicken for a fraction of the price. The shrimp were supposed to be cooked in coconut milk but the just hang above... More

After a few days of typical Vietnamese food it was nice to find a restaurant overlooking the Mykong which served European food. We had Spaghetti Bolognese and it got 10/10 bit sweet but very nice. Washed down with local red wine & beer. We had 2 mains, 1 dessert, 3 beers & 2 wines 485,000 songs.

This restaurant offers a wide range of choice. Located at the Riverside in the Old French Market, it is one of the best locations for dinner. If you're looking for a place without any tourists; don't go here. Meals cost you from 140 to 250 thousand Dong. Set Meals 240. They also offer more exotic good like snake and frog... More

A tourist trap but the food was very good. Prices were higher than the street food, but it was quite good. Depending on your price point worth visiting if you don't want to figure out which street food place to eat.

We went for a two course dinner in July. The place was packed which was a good sign. The service was quick and friendly. We had some fried spring rolls as a starter which were nice. Great taste and texture. The main however, was outright horrible. Noodles and meat (usually beef and/or seafood) is probably the dish I've eaten the... More

We had low expectations of this place, in the tourist market and they provided western food as well as local. We were pleasantly surprised. We had a chicken with chilli and lemon grass (tasty), a local chicken curry (flavoursome), noodles with veg - particularly good and our fussy eater had chicken with fried rice. We were all very happy and... More
