Ate in the restaurant 19 buffet. Top class international buffet. The food was the best quality and the atmosphere was buzzing. The wine waitress was attentive and plates were cleared as cutlery left. Seafood, oriental offerings, beef, fish, sushi, breads, cheeses, lovely desserts. First rate and the wibe wasn't hal bad either. A must do evening in Ho Chi Minh.

Not distinctly Vietnamese, much more a typical Chinese. Three tour groups in (including us) and some guy touting on the street. I strongly suspect it's "popular" with groups because the reps get a cut for taking you there, which isn't unusual or even that objectionable if the food is any good. No cheaper than elsewhere but definitely the worst dinner I've had in two weeks in Vietnam.

Should have trusted my instincts and split off from the group, as we've disagreed with the tour guide's recommendations or choices before (and he got shirty). Dinner lived down to my expectations in just about every way. Scorched and meagre spring rolls, ridiculously small main course serving and even that was a distinctly average offering.

One good thing - reasonably priced draught beer.

It is now ten years ago and this is still the best place where I had eggrolls. Absolutely fab.

I am very glad to see this excellent restaurant is still there.

We visited this restaurant as part of a tour group(12) -all patrons in there appeared to be also in groups so likely a kickback operates here. Food delivery very haphazard some people finished before others had received their meals- salads arriving after mains finished etc...
Vegetarian crepe/pancake had only bean spouts and nothing else.
Really disappointing after having so much superb Vietnamese food on the rest of the trip.
