It's a little expensive here, so we opted for an afternoon drink with a view over the river in that quiet period between lunch and dinner service. We shared a starter of stuffed pumpkin flower fritters which were lovely though I wasn't crazy about the prefab accompanying sauce.

Unfortunately recommended by our tour guide. Had 1 starter, needed some Mediterranean feelings: Greek Salad, was OK for Being so far away... Mains were a Shrimp soup with egg, which didn't see much of shrimps but tons of eggs. I had grilled duck breast 5herbs, it tasted sweet (like many mains here) and was not tender at all, full of...

The seating area is nice and clean with a view of the river. The food was decent, and the drinks were good. However, our waiter made several mistakes on our drink orders, then charged us for them on the bill. After acknowledging that this was in fact their mistake, they still refused to take the charges off our bill. It... More

Hello Benoit, nice of you to post, but then, let me wonder. Of course I enquire about what may have happened with your drinks. We are careful to be fair in case of an error, and so your review is certainly sending me on the track for what happened. Nothing to declare on the staff side, but then you visited... More

We got taken here by our tour company. Would not be our choice. Yes wonderful river front location. And the wait staff are very helpful. We were having a set menu and as we'd had one for lunch asked if we could use the money and get something from the ala carte menu. The woman our tour guide spoke to... More

Dear marshatraveller, Thanks for posting. I understand your predicament. When you arrive, everything is supposed to be ready to accommodate your group and avoid any waiting time. Your set menu is the one your agent negotiated, not the same for all groups as you may have assumed --and we do not short-change our guests, as we know well we are... More

Perhaps I am being too tough on this restaurant but this restaurant is not a fusion of Vietnamese and western tastes. I notice many unconsumed dishes including those of our table. Cooking and sauces with fish sauce are a mark of Vietnamese cuisine but this is probably not what western pallets are hoping for.

Nice location - you can sit on the pier, which is really scenic. Service was also good. But food was only ok, a bit bland and boring. We had two set menus - perhaps this was the reason we realized that everything tasted the same. Choose only one dish you like then the restaurant might be good.

We ate here with a large group of 11 on a cycling tour, in the evening. With a reservation, we had a table at the edge of the dock by the water. Appetizer of stuffed fried squash flowers was delicious followed by squid with pineapple and "sate" curry, which was not peanut satay. Wines by the glass include French and... More

Set apart from the rest of the strip, but what a disaster. Looks nice but the food was poor. Meat very poor quality and flavourless, in fact the green beans had come straight out of a frozen packet. We talked to a lovely young manager and who was very apologetic and said the kitchen had been very busy with lots... More

I went here last night for dinner because of the view, which is quite nice as it sits right on the river. The food should be so good. Glancing at the menu, it looked quite fantastic, but the production was not. I had some fried spring rolls which were, at best, so so. Then I had the fried calimari which... More

The restaurant was on our tour and we had a pleasant lunch at restaurant with many Vietnamese dishes. The chicken soup and the spring rolls were a real standout. They had a lot of flavor and were well presented. We also had a spiced chicken dish and a pork dish that were both really good and remember to order the... More
