Very nice atmosphere in area not so fancy just outside of Bui Vien. I had been warned about difficulty in finding so had a map but Taxi driver had to call and get directions. Had the large assorted appitizer platter which was great. Five or 6 samples of each tapas. We then shared 4-5 entrees which were all very good, but not great. The whole fish and Sea Bass stew was better than average, and the tofu dish was very nice. Might go back but many other places to try first....

The service here is excellent!! I highly recommend the monsoon appetizer plate! you get a little taste of everything and all of the flavours are amazing!! The servings are massive! and prices are extremely reasonable. I will definitely go again before leaving Vietnam.

Good food and good service but nothing more..
Was expecting more from the review.
We had the braised pork caramel and eggplant stuffed with pork mince, both were ok but lake a bit of flavour.
The atmosphere is nice, a bit cozy and the service is excellent.
We were surprised to have a extra 15% surcharge when you got the bill which leaves a bitter taste.

After a very long search we finally found the restaurant. It is very tastefull decorated and has a very nice atmosphere with nice service.
The food is average by taste and quantity. Is wasn't cheap, (little) bottle of beer is expensive and you have to pay extra (20.000 VND p.p.) for the steamed rice. At the end we were also unhappily surprised by the extra costs we had to pay (10% VAT and 5% service), which we didn't experienced before in other restaurants.

Firstly, we found this place really easy to find!

It's a lovely building, beautifully decorated with a wide range of Asian food. We had a selection from different counties, and it was all delicious!

The staff are really wonderful - super attentive and incredibly friendly! Thank you!
