“Best food in Vietnam so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

I came here for lunch, hot and frazzled after a morning of sightseeing. This is a peaceful sanctuary in the midst of hectic HCMC. Wait staff were exceptionally attentive and friendly. More importantly, the food is truly excellent, amazingly delicate flavors.

“An Oasis of calm right by the War Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We came across this place by accident, we were just looking for a light lunch after visiting The War Museum. I was feeling a bit jaded and the lovely banana milk shake, fantastic wing bean salad and top Pad Thai really did the trick. The only slight let down was the fresh coconut which was rather warm.

Prices were excellent and the restaurant very clean, calm and peaceful. We are not vegetarians but would go back in a flash!

“Great little vegetarian place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I loved this place. We tried about 7 different dishes, and each one was beautifully executed and tasted fantastic. It was probably the most expensive restaurant that I've eaten at in HCMC, but well worth it. About 80,000 per entree, 40,000 per non-alcoholic drink. It is in a peaceful garden setting, right by the War Remnants Museum. You feel like you are a world away though.
