“Our best experience in HCMC”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This was highly recommended to us, and rightfully so. The place is unique in that it would prepare all dishes per your instructions: you choose the ingredients and the way it should be prepared and the chef does this for you. Thus, come prepared. Or, the waiter will recommend combinations. The fish was delicious, the seafood unique. The deserts, though, were very disappointing. All in all a great experience.

“Very good food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went there for Valentines Dinner and were not disappointed. Truily genuine vietnamese food including many dishes i havent seen so far in vietnam. Make sure have a reservation if you want to go as a couple because they only have few tables for two.

“nice experience”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

went there after 3 weeks + in vietnam and really enjoyed the whole evening
setting is nice, artsy, rustic, modern... but not overdone
the menu comes also in english, some staff speaks english
menu is long, offers many food and drinking options
the staff gives you explanations on the menu, explaines the different dishes and gives you recommendations
food is very good, different, tasty and very fresh... we enjoyed the beef salad, spring rolls, sea bass with passion fruit, squid in batter... among other dishes
overall a very pleasant experience nothing fancy but a little hip and honest

“A-freaking-mazing”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Based on other's reviews I was not expecting a lot - at first found it hard to locate but once we got in we were quick to be seated and served. The whole place has a very calming feel and the aromas from the kitchen have you hungry from the outset.

Our meal came quickly and the staff were very attentive. The food is the star here, and it's fresh and tasty. We had caramelised pork and shrimp rice paper rolls.

My tip to avoid disappointment is go during the week, not on weekends or holidays. Cost was $25 for two including fresh juices.
