This restaurant was on the way from Cu Chi tunnels back to Ho Chi Minh and it us quite easy to access. It was on the bank of the river so you can enjoy the fresh air, look at the river while enjoying your meals. There was no air conditioner at the restaurant but it was still confortable.
Food was good with nice decoration and tastes. The staff was helpful also to show us the way to eat each dish.

Came here on our group tour of Vietnam, stopped off for lunch following our visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels. It was a lovely setting to relax in, the restaurant had a huge main hall and a number of smaller outbuildings with tables for group sittings.
We had reserved an outside table and it was pleasant, even next to the river we were not pestered by insects and we had the entertainment of the local ducks whilst we ate.
We had chosen a set menu with the typical 5 course Vietnamese menu and all of the dishes were really tasty, with a good mix of vegetables, meat, fish, spring rolls of course, and soup and dessert. they catered adequately for two in our group eating purely vegetarian .
The taste was good, the timing was good, the service was good and all staff were pleasant and smiling.
We were then able to walk off a bit of lunch immediately with a stroll around the grounds.

Lunch here was a nice lunch stop on a long break from our mini van trip, and the food was pretty good. It was relaxing to sit on an individual terrace and watch things float by in the river. Probably not a destination spot for anyone, however.

Our group of 16 had a beautiful lunch on the way back from the Cu Chi Tunnels and enjoyed a set menu with plenty of variety and flavour. Lovely cold local beer and many other drinks to choose. Lovely setting over looking the river with fans to cool us while we ate. Nice friendly staff and fast service, clean amenities and buildings.

Our ship excursion bus stopped here for lunch before we continued on to the Cu Chi Tunnels. No doubt this is a tourist spot and though it is situated along some water the scenery wasn't much to look at. They do a decent job with the grounds though. The restaurant is a big open covered space and the table I was at was along the edge so we had a good view of the grounds. It was a set menu and the menu of the lunch on the table said "Saigon Tourist". What they brought to us was Ben Nay Spring Rolls (Cha bio Ben Nay), Fried Basa Fillet Fish with Tomato Sauce (Ca Basa Chien Sot Ca), Grilled Chicken and Sticky Rice (Ga Nuong and Xoi Phong), Diced Beef ( Bo Luc Lac), Sautéed Morning Glory with Garlic (Rau Muong Xoa Toi), Fried Rice with Fish and Chicken (Com Chien Ca Man and Ga) and fruit (Trai Cay). The wait staff was a bit robotic with bringing the dishes and the main interaction was when asking what drinks we wanted. If on my own I probably would not have found this place. All the food was fine, nothing truly strange, nothing spicy. I will say it was a better than expected included lunch.
