Ate lunch there with a group. Am vegetarian and was pleased that they could provide many dishes which were meat free. Food was very tasty, attractively plated and was not too spicy. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere on the 14th floor of the hotel of the Palace Hotel.

You're probably wondering why I gave it a 3. It lacks in atmosphere. From the lighting which looks better for a classroom, to the decor, this place misses the goal of atmosphere.

we had dinner at Lemongrass primarily because it was a stone's throw from our hotel. It prides itself on "authentic Vietnamese" dishes, and the dishes were by and large fine, not none stood out or was worth a special memory.... Service was a little on the slow side, and one dish we ordered arrived a considerable while after everything else.... More

So I think this place have a good deal going with all the local tour reps, our travel agent rep recommended this place and when we stopped by for lunch we could see from the clientele that our tour rep was, one of many, sending people to this place. The food was flavourless and my wife's shrimp was dodgy, she... More

This place was very average. I'm not sure why people rated it highly. The food was not great but not bad either 😄.

This is one of the higher end restaurants in Saigon. The food is all of good quality and although it is more expensive than street food, I would not call it expensive compared to similar quality food in other countries. The BBQ ribs with lemongrass are a must try!

This place was fantastic. We had dinner and drinks overlooking the beautiful sights of the city. Our meals came out quickly, were delicious and the service was impeccable. We got the chicken fried rice, vegetarian spring rolls and lemongrass chicken and were very happy with all of our food. The lemongrass Mojitos were fantastic also. Would definitely visit again.

We have dined at this venue on previous visits to this city and were pleased to find that it is still in the same place and serving food which is as good as ever. Service is quick and attentive and the portions are just right. We enjoyed the stuffed crab claws and the shrimp and green mango salad - just... More
