“Nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Nice ambience in an old French colonial building. We had the set menu, which was a great introduction to Vietnamese food on our first night. This was quite a lot of food which partially justifies the higher than average price, just as well that we were starving after our long journey and could do it justice. Service was very good, the waiter explained each dish to us There was a duo of traditional musicians who looked like they wished that they were anywhere else, but played nicely enough. The clientele was a mixture of tourists and locals.

“An Excellent Refuge from the Hubbub of Ho Chi Minh City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This was one of the nicest dining experiences we had on our month long visit to South East Asia. The restaurant is quite elegant, in a very nice neighborhood, menu with a wide selection, excellent wine menu, excellent food, a little pricey, and wonderful service. The place is extremely richly appointed and the sense of well being one gets is immediately felt as soon as one is inside the place. It has all the elements of a fine dining experience. All in all it was a wonderful change from the hubbub of HoChiMinh city and a welcome respite at that. Highly recommended.

“Good enough for a U.S. President”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

President George and Barbara Bush ate here (their photo is on the wall on the stairs going up from the ground floor), and while I am sure he did not have broccoli, he probably ate quite well. I had king prawn in tamarind sauce. A huge prawn was first brought to me alive for approval before it was grilled. And it did not die in vain. It was the tastiest single Vietnamese dish I have ever eaten. The ambience is fine, and the place is easy to find, right on busy Dong Khoi Street.

“Pretty average food catered to tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

From the rice paper rolls to the lotus root salad which should be mastered by all Vietnamese restaurants of its caliber, they performed pretty dismally, lacklustre and flavourless
