“The driest chicken to date.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The only redeeming factor of this place was the nice view and non-intrusive wait staff. Give it a wide berth. Also the wine was not cellar-ed properly and was verging on vinegar.

“Give it a miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

We stopped here as Morning Glory across the road was closed. the restaurant was empty at 2.30 pm except for one other couple but in spite of this the two dishes we ordered (fresh spring rolls and a plate of mixed Vietnamese starters) took 35 minutes before they arrived on the table. When they did arrive they were pretty tasteless and insipid.We will not be returning here and cannot recommend it to other visitors. The service was no better than the food. The only positive:a nice river view which we had plenty of time to admire !

“No good if you're hungry”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Don't go here if you're hungry!
We had to wait about ten minutes for a table which we actually didn't mind as we specifically requested a seat on the balcony overlooking the river and we had to wait for them to clear a table (we couldn't actually understand why we'd had to wait once we sat down though as there was an empty table on the balcony). When are table was finally ready we almost lost it as the waitress showed another couple, who had arrived after us, to the table. One of the other waiters quickly noticed this error though and we were seated.
15 minutes later and we were still seated, no one approached the table at all. No drinks order, no food order, nothing.
At this point we obviously left but the thing that was most annoying about the experience was that the staff didn't even realise. They all said goodbye and thank you as we were leaving, not one of them noticed that we had left after not being served. Even when we spoke to the manager as we left to tell him why we were leaving he simply smiled and said thank you.
Can't comment on the food (obviously) but the service is shocking compared to everywhere else in Vietnam.

“great location and nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

You will see many tourists here but prices are reasonable and the food is good. It is a corner shop and provides good views of the river as well as the street. Nice place for a hearty meal

“Great setting food not the best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

The location of this restaurant is wonderful with views over the river lovely.the food however was quite unremarkable and staff were a bit uninterested .it is not high season but they made an effort to get us in and then appeared disinterested .expensive by Vietnamese standards and think they are resting on their laurels because of location.terrible music playing all the time we were in .would not rush back loads of better places to eat.
