Went here with a business group. Had one of the set meals. Very mixed, with some of the dishes inevitably better than others. The lobster was memorably excellent, spring rolls very good (though stingy with the number of rolls recognising so cheap to make!). The beef not good. The sea cucumber and mushrooms was bland and made us all remember why we don't eat sea cucumbers. All else average to good. Would recommend going for a la carte.
Wasn't impressed that our table was right in front of the musicians, ie noisy.
Overall, definitely not the best meal I've had in HCMC or Hanoi. I would recommend staying simple and have Vietnamese fare in one of the many good "basic" restaurants in HCMC and then going to one of the nicer French restaurants if looking for something special. This place is a little bit of a tourist trap, complete with Australians in their ubiquitous shorts and singlets national dress. Or just come here for dessert and a coffee to enjoy the atmosphere.
Service was OK, not excellent. Some of the dishes cold.
Was going to give an average rating, but bumped it up as my visitors enjoyed it. Having lived in Vietnam for 5 years, I would not go except with visitors who wanted a tourist brochure-esque "Vietnamese" experience.
But very nice decor. Advice to the restaurant - don't rely on the "atmosphere" - get a better standard of food.... And stop with the sea cucumber!
