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.

Tourists seem to like this place, so after a few weeks living in Can Tho I thought I'd try it. The food is decent, but wow is this place expensive! I know that the tourist district is more costly than everywhere else in Can Tho but even for the tourist block this was pricey. You can eat the same food... More

We liked the vegetarian tandoori and the morning glory. It was really tasty and the breeze was fresh.

Heard a lot of ranting and raving about this place but to be brutally honest, its a tourist trap right next to the Mekongs unpleasant stench. Cold beer? Forget it, attentiveness? Go elsewhere. Food is ok but when i noted the way the staff brush the place mat remnants onto the floor and just leave it there it gave me... More

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
