Description: Southern Vietnamese family dishes are the main focus of the restaurant. We will welcome you as if you were coming in our home, with smiles and soft atmosphere, believing that good food brings people together. In a French colonial house, we went back to the roots of Vietnamese cuisine as it was done in the Sixties without MSG.

This is a great restaurant tucked away in District 1 near the zoo. From the grand colonial architecture to the authentic and delicious food, from the rooftop terrace to the affordable prices, this restaurant is a winner. I'd highly recommend it for a celebration or a romantic dinner. I have only visited once but will certainly be going back. Be warned though - our waiter filleted our fried fish at the table and basically destroyed it! Probably better to do this yourself...but try it, it was delicious (Fried fish with green mango). Staff were great also, and the best thing - it is just behind my apartment! :)

by recommendation, we went to may restaurant and we were not disappointed. They had lots of varieties for you to choose. very special cuisines in Mekong delta, even from northern vietnam.
Displayed at special setting, they left a strong impression on traveller with reasonable price.

We only came here during the day for some juices. They had a very big juice menu which surprised us. The staff is friendly and they have free wifi.

Great experience - the food was great and the staff competent. Atmosphere was most impressive with a relaxed vibe but 5 star menu! Definitely recommend!
