“Wonderful place for a special night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I went to Maxim Nam An's with a group of girlfriends on our first night in Saigon. While not super formal, this is an upmarket restaurant with live music; the sumptuous decor feels right for a special occasion. We had a private room which was a visual feast even before we started eating - colorful silk paneling, exotic floral arrangements, atmospheric lighting. The captain was extremely courteous and service was excellent. We had a decadent meal, all of it delicious, but one thing is truly unforgettable - TAMARIND CRAB. I don't usually eat crab but this dish was unbelievably yummy and addictive. We had a great meal, in contrast to the fast food pho we had in the afternoon.

“Delicious food, wonderful ambience, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

i hv been to hcm 3 times in recent months. dinner at maxim's was one of the most memorable meals. i love every single dish i ordered - the steamed fish (huge!) with condiments (rice paper, veggies) was outstanding. i salivate every time i think of it.

the chicken dish with fried sticky rice cake and pomelo salad were very good too. i wish i had space for more food that night.

i never think much of 'entertainment' in restaurants but the one here is very very decent. interesting, pleasing to ears and eyes without being intrusive on dinner conversations.

the staff are attentive, professional.

i am going back there in december when i return to hcm, for sure!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

A great restaurant in this busy city. Food was tasty and very well presented. Waiters were helpful and friendly offering constructive advice on the dishes. Live entertainment. Would certainly recommend this venue. Certainly did not find the food too expensive for the quality on offer.
