This busy little restaurant served us a very enjoyable meal. We found the quality of food was nice and the staff were shy, many of them were trainees and carefully doing a great job of respecting their guests privacy. With encouragement I am sure they will learn that many travellers enjoy meeting with the locals while enjoying good food.

Went here at the end of June on our last night in Ho Chi Minh. The food was nice, the service was great and the prices pretty reasonable. I would definitely recommend this place but wouldn't rave about it as some others have.

Like most food in HCMC, it's ok but doesn't meet the same standards as found in other parts of the country. Unfortunately it's also more expensive and the service isn't as good. The service here is friendly and professional however.

No doubt this is a little pearl in the city center. The restaurant is on the second floor of an old building, yet the interior is comfortable. Excellent customer service, beautiful smiles, and the staff can speak good English where it is not easy to find in Vietnam. We ordered 4 dishes - one appitizer, one pork, one chicken and a rice dish, and it fits two people well - and the taste is great. Just one thing to note - you'd better come early or make a reservation, even on a weekday...

We loved this restaurant so much we went back a second time. The food was delicious, the service attentive and staff were extremely polite - very keen to practice their English with you. Definitely worth visiting.
