Returned to Renkon this week after hearing they recently changed Chef's through a friend of mine. Always liked the place and wanted to try something "new" in town. Previously i'd always thought of Renkon as a place for japanese skewers and of course their udon...carbonara but now the menu has a taken a western twist with a whole assortment of new dishes.. and let's just say its a complete game changer! My favourites were the terriyaki salmon and chip dip. Definitely a new regular date spot for me and my hubby. We sat upstairs in their beautiful open kitchen - quite the show i must say. Everything was topped off by some great down to earth service too.More

I have been here twice and the level of service was wildly different each time. The first time the bar refused to give me change for a drink I ordered and flat out lied that I had already received the money. The second time I...went during happy hour, the staff could not have been friendlier. We tried every item on the happy hour menu and everything was delicious. I will come back here for happy hour, and I hope the staff continues to do a superb job for my third time and beyond.More

Renkon has a superb services that make everyone feel comfortable and satisfied. The staff is helpful and attentive. It has a clean and clear arrangement that matches the modern simple interior design. The lighting is excellent too. :) This izakaya really makes after work hours...become more joyful and relaxed. I just tasted Saketini, a signature cocktails here, which is a mixology of gin, Honjozo, sake, yuzu and Genmai tea. This cocktails tastes really good with the skewers and Wow it's only 60k dong during happy hours. Must try! I and my boyfriend ordered quite a lots. For skewers, we had chicken thigh, wing, heart, scallops rolled with bacon, pork meatball dipped with egg yolk. I like the chicken heart and pork meatball dipped with egg yolk the most. Tasting with the Saketini really made me happy. We also picked a flower crab salad. It's so yummy, fresh, but the portion is too small. And my all time favorite Unagi sushi. This sushi always pampers my appetite. The sashimi quality is good in average but not excellent. We ordered a Renkon sashimi set which includes 6 kinds of sashimi, but I chose 3 kinds of them only: salmon, octopus, squid, and they gave me double portion of each kind. This set is very average. Then a scallops sashimi set made me wow afterwards. The scallops is fresh, sweat and juicy, feeling like just picked from the sea. We entered to main course by a seafood udon and a pork chashu ramen. These main course is so so for me. In overall, I find the food here is good, but the skewers and the noodle dishes are quite salty. I also gave feedback to the restaurant after that. However I still rate this place "excellent" and a "must try" place in Saigon. Hope you will enjoy and review and check out this place for your own experience.More
