We were taken to this restaurant as part of our day tour of the floating markets and various other sites along the Mekong, and were presented with a set menu which comprised 5 or 6 courses of delicious meals, and each dish was plentiful. The staff are attentive and the setting is right on the banks of the Mekong. It... More

Food is ok, nothing special, PLEASE NOTE that the menu is exactly the same as that of Nam Bao, which is the other restaurant typically recommended by tour agents and hotels. Must be the same chain. You will not find anything different here except the outdoor location close to the river. Then again, perhaps there is no better food in... More

Atmosphere is great, food is nice too, but mosquito a lot, and nothing compare to their waitress' attitude. 1. We are a Taiwanese family travel with Vietnamese friend, as a foreigner, my friend always help us check menu and take order. Since those staffs realize she is Vietnamese, while we try to find a seat, they just said the seat... More

Thought looks like a tourist trap, the Sao Hom is a good place with good food. A good coffee too. A clean and nice place with very good English speaking service. A good place for breakfast after a tour to the floating market.

Unfortunately it's still a tourist trap and a rip off in terms of quality of food and service. Almost 400000 dong for three beers and two starters, one of which has diminished in size... More
