This place has nice romantic ambiance if you sit outside in the courtyard. The service is not coordinated. We had three different waiters in the course of the evening. They all tried to please, but there was no coordination and the service suffered because of it. The quality of the food was just OK for the prices they charged. We went to another Vietnamese restaurant, also in District 1 that was better and half the price. So, go for the location and the ambiance. Don't expect exceptional food. It's good food, but not exceptional food like some of the other reviews have rated it.

Went here for our last dinner in Saigon before flying home.
The food was excellent, we had the Vietnamese dishes which were of a very high standard.
Service was very good indeed, waiters looked good in their tight white T-shirts!
We had a bit of difficulty finding the place, in a courtyard set back from the road, the signs are not really obvious so look carefully.
As with all our meals in Vietnam, the price was geat too,

Excellent food in calm square, centrally located for the major tourist hotels.
Was advised to eat here by our local guide. Ate twice here, and enjoyed both meals. Particularly enjoyed the shared plate as a starter, excellent selection, and generous portion.
On the second night both my wife and I had the prawns in chilli and salt--- knockout, with a shared plate of morning glory, as recommended by waiter.
Pleasant wine bar two 'doors away' , great for pre/post dinner drink to spin the night out

Very nice restaurant and the food is great. Try to stay with the local dishes, they are the best! The Hoa Tuc Starter was amazing, I had it as a dinner instead.Very relaxing atmospher and very cosy and calm place to enjoy Vietnames food at! We went to this place two times and we loved the both!

The service here was very poor. The waiters shout across the tables at each other, and our waiter was in the middle of serving our wine when he put the half opened bottle down on the table, told us he'd be back and disappeared off. He then obviously forgot about us, and it took us a while to get someone's attention to finish serving he wine. The prawns we ordered were bland and tasteless, although the spring rolls were ok. Not a place worth a second visit.
