Good service and nice atmosphere. Very disappointing food. We had the four course tasting menu and it was all much the same. Would not recommend, visited mid February 2017

Was surprised with the crowds and noise when I entered but it was peaceful upstairs in the restaurant. The ambience was pleasant and the food and presentation of dishes were excellent, a very good fusion of east and west possibly because the owner had begun his training in Australia before returning to his routes in Vietnam . Excellent wine selection... More

Recommended by hotel concierge, it is a lovely room, with a fancy menu and they try to push the multi course set menu. More French than Vietnamese, it's really not much of a "fusion". Expensive and, in my opinion, not worth it.

We dined here and opted for the set menu's which come with 4/5/7 course options. Specifically, we opted for the 4 course which takes food from the different regions and the 7 course. Comparing the 2, it seemed to us that the 4 course represented better value. The food was enjoyable enough, but the portions are not very big and... More

The restaurant is pretty elegant, and the service is great, however the food is average. Locals say it is one of the best restaurant in town but I disagree, maybe it used to be. Having saying that I would recommend the place for a romantic night out as the place feels a luxury environment. Also, the good thing is that... More

Sunday lunch, good old tripadvisor with their 'restaurants near me' search criteria. We had a lovely lunch here. There was only one other table with people in the place, unfortunately they were all smoking. Something that takes a bit of getting used to. We had beef luc lac and honey chicken. Tasty food at a decent price. Once again however,... More

Downstairs there's casual dining with music. It was a younger, hip crowd. Upstairs is a beautiful dining room. The service was very good. The food was excellent. Our group shared several appetizers and entrees, all delicious. Located in District 1 on a very vibrant, happening street. Definitely visit when in Saigon.

We had dinner at this elegant restaurant and we were not disappointed! Very friendly and pampering staff. I recommend to take a 5 course menu with free flowing drinks. You will feel in heaven! 100% recommendation

Strongly suggest one of the tasting menus. Relatively inexpensive and you get a good flavor of Vietnamese food. Decent wine list but beer is the way to go in this city. was is often the case in Southeast Asia, the service is adequate, not great.
