Located near the Mekong. We arrived there pretty early (5ish) and got served pretty quick. Food was nice (we went for the snake set menj and pork with 5 spices) and arrived quickly. Although we were told the set menu was for 1 person, quantity were too much for us and we could probabky have fed 2 on 1 set... More

Visited this place on saturday evening around 6pm for an early dinner The good : good service, waiters who could actually understand english The bad : expensive food, and the food was not flavorful. Checking out once worthwhile, but won't going back

Average food. Staff more interested in chatting amongst themselves than taking our order. Handy location

Lovely setting for this restaurant, right on the river bank - but the quality of the food lets it down. Nothing we ordered was particularly bad (except for the mixed seasonal vegetables, which was basically mostly cabbage and rather bland), but it wasn't great either. Given the prices of the meals (mid range by Western standards but pretty high end... More

The reviewers of this place who like it,must normally live on a diet of baked beans, i have yet to taste more bland vietnamese food than this. We ordered squid with lemongrass paste ( Rubber in a dishwater sauce) and chicken with tamarind (a few scraps of greasy something with not the slightest hint of tamarind) to top it off... More

Dear Stephen Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, which makes for a good read. One question as you rated the service as decent: did you take the time to mention it to them? Or send the dish back with a more specific comment than this one? Benoit More

Nice setting in the back of an indoor market. Nice seating at the bank of the Mekong. Big choice of Asian and Western food. Reasonable prices. We got the 5-dish menu. A real discovery of good fresh food.

This place made it very easy for us, as tourists, to order. The service was good and the food was ok. (In fairness, the fried springs were delicious.) The restaurant is well located, on the river, and is a decent tourist choice. Still, afterward, we wished we had tried somewhere a little more interesting.

I was excited to try this place, #1 because of the food, I kept hearing rave reviews and #2 because the venue seemed pretty cool (large space with seating outside and window seating to people watch). The food was great, the service not so much. Our waiter missed one of our appetizer orders, and never returned to our table to... More

Excellent location right by river. All food was delicious, fish in clay pot excellent, and very reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend a visit.
