Given your street food option this wasn't one of the better meals in can tho. Found the meals had a lot of fillers in them and pricing compared to street food is a lot more although still a reasonable price given Exchange rates.

It was the worst food we had since we travel in laos and vietnam for 6 weeks! We had two different menus, each with 6 dishes, so we had many samples.... Additional it is absolutly overpriced, it would be ok for a special tourist evening on the river but not with this kind of food!

The staff are attentive and the setting is right on the banks of the Mekong. It... More

I live in this city and I used to come here to see the river when the water in the early morning or afternoon. You should also enjoy the food here to experience a very unique flavor.
