My husband and I visited this restaurant having eaten regularly at the Marina Ngoc Suong in Saigon - on first impressions the garden areas looked fancy and the prices were far cheaper than those of the sister restaurant in saigon. Service was good, however staff need to learn to not hover at tables and watch guests eat - this is rather intimidating and border line rude... I like to have some privacy when I'm eating. Food was not quite as well prepared as it was at the saigon sister restaurant but it was good to be able to compare the same dishes. Overall, a generally good outing.

Restaurant deserves less than 1 star. I would give this place a negative 5 if I could. Amazed these guys are still in business. If you want authentic and good Vietnamese food, this is NOT the place to go. Food was HORRIBLE and service is terrible. They charged for everything the moment you sit down. They charged us for the handi-wipes that all other restaurants offer as complimentary. None of this is revealed upfront. They are sneaky and put all of this in the check once you get the bill. Their entrees do not mostly include rice. They CHARGE for white rice which is unbelievable considering you are in Vietnam! Questionable of how fresh the fish/seafood really is once you see how they are stored. We were able to see this on our way to the bathroom after we ate. Stay far away from this place as it will only disappoint you.

I with my GF went into this restaurant, despite had read not very good review of it. Generally, it was not bad at all, according to my evaluation. Location and interior was good. Wide facade and beautiful decor. We could enjoy open air with plenty of fans. Staff treatment was friendly. Great assortment of living sea products were shown. Price was certainly high, but acceptable for living sea products (always several times higher than the just dead or frozen sea food). Menu was huge (but for a big sea food restaurant, not much different from the other places in Vietnam such as Da Nang, Vung Tau etc.,but different from northern Vietnam). For improvement of the service, I would recommend the managers to clearly identify strategies to attract foreign visitors who have different sense of taste and manner from vietnamese people. It needs more training to the staffs for treating foreigners. For vietnamese visitors, the service is fully acceptable, even much better than other spots.

Over priced, waiters smell of cigarette smoke and hover over you impatiently. Watched a cat do its business next to our table while they were trying to charge $100 or more for a lobster. The seafood was fresh, but really nothing special when cooked poorly. A word of warning; don't let them near your plate to help you peel your prawns. With over 140 items on the menu it is no wonder there is no sign of refinement in anything that was presented to the six of us, it was rushed and poorly executed. Vastly better food to be had from the street vendors outside. Without a doubt the most disappointing meal I have had in Vietnam over the last two weeks.
