“Amazing food, good price, hard to find”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Quality food, the chef is Algerian, can cook. We had a great dinner, and the owner is very friendly. Good price. It's a bit hard to find, underneath a hotel. Definitely worth the trip.

“Real Coucous”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Really good couscous, it's not cheap, but the quality of the food is excellent. We feel that the Chef is mindful and attentive towards the client. Besides, the deco is nice and the service is friendly and professional. Among other choices, we can eat an authentic couscous, Algerian style, and I highly recommend it!

“We found a gem in Saigon”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Browsing trip advisor we discovered this restaurant by chance and we are glad we did. The restaurant is nicely decorated and Ana, who runs the restaurant with her husband, is there to help you select the right dish.
The food is nicely presented and it's simply excellent. We tried the tomato pepper salad and falafel as appetizer. As main courses we shared a couscous merges which was delicious, a beef tagine and a chermouka between 3 of us and it was more than enough. If you want to try something different while in Saigon this restaurant will not disappoint you.

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

We went here after reading about it in a foreigners magazine for people living in Hoi Chi Minh. The food was really good. I've only ever eaten in Algerian restaurants when visiting Paris and this was better. To start we were presented with tasty herb croutons, some bread and humous. This went nicely with our beer and wine. For starters we shared falafel, this was very tasty. For mains we went for a mixed meat dish (this was served with bread) and I had vegetarian Algerian ratatouille (both were delicious). To finish we went for a mixed Algerian dessert. This included Baclava and other dessert of this type. Overall, it was a really nice restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was great. It's really easy to find, beside the viewing tower. Would recommend this to anyone looking for something different in Hoi Chi Minh. Our bill which included two glasses of wine and two beers, one starter, two mains and one desert came to circa $35-40. This was good value for me.
