Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On three separate occasions We had the red snapper, prawns, prawn spaghetti, coconut curry chicken, beef dish, and the stuffed squid. All delicious, well made, perfectly seasoned. This is one of the best restaurants we have been to on our one month trip through Vietnam....Worth finding cause it’s not on the main road.More

Incredible restaurant with the best flavours and dishes. We visited on 26th Feb after spending some time in other parts of Phu Quoc Island. We were blown away by the quality of food, the helpfulness of staff and great tasting wine and cocktails. So much...so that we are going back tomorrow evening for dinner. Would thoroughly recommend the prawns, boneless chicken curry and the belly pork. You will not be disappointed. The vinho verde (green wine) was delightful. Please if you are in the area make the trip to this little gem.More

Mai Jo is food heaven! This is some of the nicest food we have experienced on our trip of Asia. The Vegan set menu is amazing and excellent value. The prawn spaghetti is delicious and some of the nicest prawns I’ve ever tasted and the...homemade bread is incredible! But my 2 favourite dishes were the Tom Yum soup and the Tofu Curry, the tofu at Mai Jo is the best EVER! I nearly forgot the oysters, the grilled oysters are a must if you go to this restaurant I would highly recommend trying them. The service from all of the staff is first class and this is one of the friendliest and most professionally run restaurants I have ever been in. We ate here 25+ times in our stay it was an absolute pleasure and we will come back again for sure!More

Best food we had whilst on Phu Quoc. The food is spectacular and diverse - ranging from Mediterranean to Vietnamese and a cool fusion of both! Great for vegetarians like me but even my meat-eating boyfriend LOVED the veggie options - the crispy tofu was...some of the best we’ve had! Great value for money as the portions are big and the food is delicious and fresh so it’s worth every penny! The staff are so smiley and polite! Also the drinks are great - the homemade sodas were unreal!More
