Cirrus has just opened on the 51st floor of the Bitexco Tower. The interior is modern with a central kitchen area so you can view your food being cooked if you get bored with the panoramic city views.

The menu is a work in progress - with as yet only 5 or so choices per course. They are concentrating on several things really well, rather than more choice at the expensive of quality. Unless you are very fussy you will find something to your taste, and it will be done to perfection. I had beef cheeks, which combined a full steak flavour with a melt in the mouth texture. My wife had no complaints about her pumpkin risotto. Dessert, wine and coffee were all without fault too.

Value-wise it is not too bad considering the venue and quality. Slightly cheaper than the restaurants in Kumho Plaza and my beef was the same price as the steak served in the bars on the surrounding roads below.

Make sure you reserve beforehand - this is easily done with a phonecall an hour earlier. If you don't have a reservation you will never get past the security on the ground floor.

Dear Julian C,

Many thanks for your post.

Do you work here? Your review looks like one us might have written it as a press release :) !
In other words, I couldn’t have said it better myself; so thanks for taking an objective view (comparing us to other restaurants in town in terms of pricing/quality).

We are working on the whole security/ground floor experience now; but thanks for letting others know about making a reservation in advance – it certainly does make things easier and we do appreciate it :). Our kitchen is not large, so the timing of table sittings does need to be managed - and hence it may not always be possible to accept walk-in guests.

Again, thanks for taking the time to post your views – much appreciated.

Regards,
Tony

Great value for money at the cities most desirable location.

Highlights are definitely centred around the theatre kitchen and incredible food, complimented by the best view in the city.

Best for couples or small groups and larger groups on request I'm sure.

Dear Thomas,

I agree with you that the theatre kitchen is the 'place to be' (my favourite spot certainly) and thank you for your compliment on the "incredible food" - I will let the kitchen crew know.

Yes, we can indeed cater to larger groups. Recently we have played host to several events ranging in size from 20-60 guests (seated set menus); and standing events from 120-250 guests.

Many thanks for your kind comments.

Best Regards,
Tony.

There is no better place for a romantic dinner than Cirrus. The place in dimly lit, spacious enough so you can chat without bothering others, and the view is fantastic - best in Saigon by FAR! The service is friendly and efficient and the food is AMAZING! Real gourmet heaven. Try the pigeon breast or the octopus for starters. The salmon and lamb make good choices for mains. You can watch your food being prepared as the kitchen is open and in the very centre of the restaurant. Even for those not wishing to spend so much, you can't argue with the prices when everything is this perfect. Try it!

Dear HueyGallop,

I am more than a little bit based, but I must agree with you that Cirrus is a perfect venue for a romantic dinner. We sent a lot of time in designing gthe furniture and layout to ensure guest comfort and privacy. I notice that you enjoyed the kitchen area diining experience. For an even more romantic experience, you might want to consider asking for a table near our wine room - away from the 'hustle-bustle' of the kitchen (actually I prefer the kitchen area because you have amazing views on one side, and the action on the other - the guests are right in the heart of everything.

Thanks for sending us your feedback - it is really appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Tony

I recently visited Cirrus on the 51st floor of Bitexco and it was very excellent. I was there with my mom to celebrate her birthday and the staff there truly made it a special evening. Service was friendly, and picked up on the fact that it was my mom's birthday without me saying anything, when my mom went to the bathroom they asked me if I would like to have a candle in the dessert and for her name. after enjoying the amazing food (I recommend the pigeon breast or the tuna carpaccio for starters and the steaks were unbelievably good with 3 different sides and smokey taste frothe charcoal bbq.) they brought our dessert with a small candle and my moms name and happy birthday written on the plate in chocolate. The desserts were super yummy too, thai tea panna cotta, and a coffee cake like tiramisu, sooooo gooood. Thanks!!!

Visited cirrus three times for dinner with family and also a champagne tasting and wine pairing night. although the way up has changed we just talked to the girls dressed in black at the downstairs entrance and they made it easy to find our way. The executive chef visited our table and we followed his recommendations. We ended up so happy and full that we shared dessert with each other at the end of the meal. The view is awe inspiring and away from the hussle and bussle of the wild city below. We took our time and found it hard to leave. My girlfriend is vegan and she appreciated that they were able to accomodate her.

Dear Starhawk029,

I'm glad you were able to chat directly with the chef about your girlfriend's dietary requirements - he is very good at making special requests 'on the fly'.

Thanks for sharing your positive feedback - the team loves receiving these!

Best Regards,
Tony
