I cant gush enough about this place. Been my favourite and goto place ever since we first landed in Saigon in May 2014. The place has changed ownership/managers a few times since then but has remained a special haven. I had my surprise 40 th birthday party there in the space behind the restaurant. A great space for a party and surprises me that it is so underused. The location in serene BP Compound overlooking the Saigon river is magical. While the service has been hit and miss over the years it is currently exceptional. The revised menu though pricier makes the cut. I do wish though that some of my old favourites were to be brought back including the Pho Tom Yom soup , the Satay and the older version of the skewers. The new Manager Adam seems to have made a lot of changes and most are great including the Indian tandoori items. He had been sharing his excitement over the new tandoor he managed to buy and the results meet the hype. The tandoori platter is a great meal for 2 or more and all the kababs are great. The vegetarians may have to wait a while as they haven’t figured out paneer yet. The Mexican at boat house has always been extremely good and a regular favourite along with the wings and cauliflower bites. I will continue to be there for a meal atleast once a week and several more for coffee and more❤️

Why travel to Vietnam just to spend your time in a western restaurant? But sometimes you just need comfort food. Located in a gated community we visited on recommendations. The food it all western and they do flights of beer so you can sample many. The location is away from the hustle of Ho Chi Minh and situated on the river. Great place if you have had enough of local culture and want home food. Staff are very nice and the place is extremely clean. We got to and from there using GRAB car service.

It really bugs me when restaurants give a description in a menu then give you something else. 3rd visit and yet to have sour dough with my breakfast... as an example.
