Food is terrible, like they just warm it up when you order something from the fridge. Staff is not friendly, I don't want to use the word RUDE. Nice decor but don't let it fool you. Stay away!!!

We went to Citronella for dinner on the night of the full moon lantern festival. The whole town was heaving but our meal was delicious and enjoyable. I had a Vietnamese chicken curry and it was the best quality chicken I'd eaten all trip -...More
