Our small tour group of four visited this house for lunch and unfortunately only had time to eat and walk through the grounds. No house tour. I suppose I shouldn't say unfortunately as the lunch was fabulous as other's photos have shown! The wait staff...was very attentive. The grounds with all the flowers was sublime!More

Visited the house only as the restaurant was closed. The house had beautiful architecture and furniture. You could also stay in the house, for a fee, but it had no air conditioning. An interesting visit..

The grounds surrounding this house, built in 1838, are quite beautiful. The house itself is built of wood, currently more expensive than concrete or steel, thus it's prominence in Cai Be. The tour included a walk through the house which is filled with antiques. Unwilling...to sell them, Mr Kiet's furnishings then were at risk of being stolen (some were). Sadly, video cameras and a bodyguard are employed to ensure the antiques remain safe.More

The house is very ornate and beautiful. It's of museum quality. Apparently they also serve food. We were part of a river cruise tour so we didn't have a meal here.

Visited as part of our private tour. We were told to expect a local lunch but we ended up with a feast. The setting is very peaceful and the staff were lovely. Started off with some soup that was tasty but a little bland. A...selection of starters were served, spring rolls and battered flowers. Really good. Whole fish was then served and our waitress picked the meat off and made pancakes with rice paper. By this time we were getting full but there was still fresh prawns and a chicken curry with rice. Really good food in a lovely setting. Toilets and washing facilities could be greatly improved.More

It's a hell of an experience. I loved it. The people were good, the food was great and the view, can't capture it in pictures.

Set in attractive gardens near the water in Cai Be, the house with its beautiful inlay furniture is a peak at the way prosperous families lived in French Colonial Era Vietnam. Very interesting, with high ceilings and broad verandah. Main building is really just three...rooms... only one...the Salon is open to visitors, but it is worth seeing. Second, newer building has lovely bar and rooms for visitors. Very attractive covered banquet space in the nearest garden. You get a nice taste of life as it was in the 1930s-50s.More

Mr Kiet loves Dragons as they are a powerful & lucky symbol. If you are fortunate to be born in a dragon year(1952, 64,76,1988 2000,)& can prove it ,then you get super special treatment.

We had lunch in this beautiful garden. The food was very good, we had 5 or 6 courses, all very well displayed. Very tasty, not expensive, nice staff. I have a very good memory of this moment.

We dined at Mr Kiets Historic House, during our visit along the Mekong river, Its a lovely old house that dates back to 1838. The restaurant's specialty is Elephants Ear fish, that is put on a rack, you can then make a rice paper roll...with it and add some pineapple and veg. Very nice relaxing place for lunch, along with soft drinks and local beer.More
