Our amazing tour guide, Tom, from Viet Vision Travel took us here for lunch and we enjoyed a set menu of 7 dishes. There was lots of variety but my favorites were the sauteed spinach with garlic, the scallops, and the delish vietnamese iced coffee! The service was friendly and timely and the ambiance lovely.

It seemed for us that Restaurant was specializing in groupes service, as an individual I would feel there a little bit lost. If one buys/ gets menu sets, pls read carefully what is included and what is not. Generally positive, but... More

We searched for a restaurant local to our hotel and this restaurant had a number of good previous reviews and also our hotel recommended it. Upon arrival the restaurant was very busy full of what appeared to be local Vietnamese families which we thought was encouraging. The initial service was slow and the waitresses did not smile or particularly welcome... More

Had a great dinner with 3 people but the price was very expensive for Vietnam. Our bill was $250 US dollars, but the food was fantastic.

Huge selection of great seafood. Lot's of locals dining here, seems to be a very popular place. Service impeccable. Various live entertainment, music, singing, dance (Thursday night). A little pricey, but excellent price vs. quality ratio.

Local food as its best ! We had fried rice, spring rolls and shrimps. Interior design is old, but the food definetly ameks up for it. Service is efficient. Short show of traditional dances and music is good to discover local culture, but careful if you are sitting too close from the stage, it gets noisy and less intimate.
