FANTASTIC. We went to this restaurant as part of a scenic group and was awstruck at the choices of food and how fresh it was. We had a buffet dinner and they had anything from western to french to vietnamese food. Some examples, crumbed frogs legs, oysters in many ways, crabs, mussels, chicken, pork, fish, snails ext. Also large variety... More

Buffet dinner was excellent. Plenty to chose from, staff cook some for you while you wait. More than enough choices. Very good.

Can't fault the food, it was excellent. Plenty of choice, from sea food, roast meats, salads, noodles, just about spoilt for choice. I couldn't name everything they had as it would take too long. Also free flowing wine. Waiting staff and very attentive, especially our waitress Nguyen nothing was too much bother. The deserts were beautiful and lots to choose... More

Convenient location but the dishes were just ok. Vegetables looked a bit old and not the usual fresh and generous servings you get in Vietnam. Mains were just ok and smallish in portions. expensive for what you get and not good value in comparison to what you could get if you walked a bit further out of the tourist block.... More

Ate here as a group meal on our Exodus Vietnam Adventures trip. Food was OK but probably the poorest meal we had during our trip - this is because most of the food we ate was really delicious. Average price for food about $15 per person. I would try another restaurant before going back here.

Incredible food and excellent value for money. My husband and I ate here 3 times, he loves seafood and Restaurant 19, is the winner of delicious seafood "hands down". The place where the locals eat always means fresh delicious food. A very kind family run this restaurant and cannot do enough to help you. The venue is average, however the... More
