Perhaps I am being too tough on this restaurant but this restaurant is not a fusion of Vietnamese and western tastes. I notice many unconsumed dishes including those of our table. Cooking and sauces with fish sauce are a mark of Vietnamese cuisine but this is probably not what western pallets are hoping for.

Nice location - you can sit on the pier, which is really scenic. Service was also good. But food was only ok, a bit bland and boring. We had two set menus - perhaps this was the reason we realized that everything tasted the same. Choose only one dish you like then the restaurant might be good.

We ate here with a large group of 11 on a cycling tour, in the evening. With a reservation, we had a table at the edge of the dock by the water. Appetizer of stuffed fried squash flowers was delicious followed by squid with pineapple and "sate" curry, which was not peanut satay. Wines by the glass include French and... More

Set apart from the rest of the strip, but what a disaster. Looks nice but the food was poor. Meat very poor quality and flavourless, in fact the green beans had come straight out of a frozen packet. We talked to a lovely young manager and who was very apologetic and said the kitchen had been very busy with lots... More

I went here last night for dinner because of the view, which is quite nice as it sits right on the river. The food should be so good. Glancing at the menu, it looked quite fantastic, but the production was not. I had some fried spring rolls which were, at best, so so. Then I had the fried calimari which... More

The restaurant was on our tour and we had a pleasant lunch at restaurant with many Vietnamese dishes. The chicken soup and the spring rolls were a real standout. They had a lot of flavor and were well presented. We also had a spiced chicken dish and a pork dish that were both really good and remember to order the... More

A great place with nice athmosphere, a place with high standard. The food is good, the service is good too, but the waiters are sometimes not so observant as they should be. Can be recommended.

Food was ok, not really authentic, and nothing really special. As a side you can only have either rice or veggies. Service was good.

It is a good place at Ninh Kiêu located in the old central market of Can Tho province. You can see all the Can Tho river and Ninh Kieu ship board when you are sitting here. Banana cake and ice cream are good state with reasonable price about 50.000 vnd each. You can order a pot o tea to relax

Great menu, lovely staff and since my previous review I haven't seen anymore dirty table mats. Bit touristy but when the staff get to know you, they make you feel pretty special and you don't wait long for dinner to land on your table.
