“Unbeatable view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This place is worth a visit for the view alone however they also have fantastic food and an intimate setting to make it the complete package. Very relaxing to enjoy some fine food and sip wine while taking in the breathtaking view. There is a buffet with vegetables, sushi, salads, desserts and more as well as having menu items that you can order as much as you want of including steak, salmon and pasta. The steak was good and the salmon steaks were fantastic as were the little cheesecakes for dessert. The service was very polite although I did have to ask twice for my steak as it seemed they forgot and at times we had to attract the attention of the waiters to get another drink. This only slightly detracted from the experience, I hope the wait staff can learn to be little more on their toes but this was overall a great experience. Quite pricey though so I will only be back for very special occasions.

“Amazing place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Its a amazing place for the views!!
The same place or views in other city would cost more expensive.
Here its possible dinner for 30 euros/person. You have a buffet and beverage incluided!! Everything!!
The food its normal. You shouldn't wait the best cooking here.. (its a very good buffet.. Remember...)
But..but! The views are spectacular. And its a little crowded place now! (its opened 6 months ago..)
We didnt book and we had a table inmediately!
The same type restaurant in others cities of the world cost 100% more minimum.
I recomand this restaurant; especially por romantic dinner.
However; if you want there are a bar for drink anything and you can see the views.

“Lunch with a view ......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Went here for the Sunday buffet lunch, including a cocktail and free-flow prosecco.

Attractive variety of food: roast, selection of grilled meats (to order), noodles, sushi, oysters, shell-fish, salads, cheeses and deserts. In addition, the day we were there, there was also a selection of traditional hot French dishes in celebration of Bastille Day,

Fabulous views from the 50th floor windows and we were lucky to have a window-side table overlooking the Saigon river.

Service was excellent and nothing a problem.

Inclusion of free-flow wine, cocktails, beer, soft-drinks and tea etc. is optional and the price including the free-flow the day we went was VND 880,000 (or around US42 a head).

Restaurant was still in soft-opening phase and bodes well for the future when totally operational.

“Best to have drinks here with the view instead of the Skydeck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

I was here very recently with friends (June 9th, 2012) for farewell drinks and we also ordered some fried spring rolls... AMAZING ! I've had crispy good spring rolls before in Ho Chi Minh but these were the best I've ever tasted ! The waiter said one order has 6 spring rolls but ours came with 8, lucky us.
Tables are scarce for seating if you are not having a lunch or dinner buffet so be sure to reserve beforehand and mention that you will not be having the buffet, otherwise you will only have a bar-like long table with high chairs which means you can't exactly talk to all of your friends if you are more than 3 people since you will be sitting side-by-side.
Still better than paying 200,000VND for entrance to the Skydeck and not being able to sit and relax and have a drink/snack.

“sky high view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

We took the elevator to the 50th floor to visit the restaurant. There was an afternoon tea menu but we opted for ice cream sundaes and coffee after a hot afternoon of sightseeing.
Service was good and the afternoon buffet looked delightful. Its not cheap by Vietnam standards and there is an additional 5% service charge then 10% tax added to your bill. An ice cream sundae costs around $7
The views are magnificent and you can really see the extent of the development of the city.
