This restaurant look good but not the high prices and poor food they served. Many variety of dishes but a lot of dishes in menu are "unavaliable". Overall, very disappointing for Vietnamese food.

Co Ngu means Old Fish in Vietnamese and it is almost that. We booked the whole restaurant for a company event but food is not good, service is very very slow. It only looks nice as a restaurant for mass tourism but not recommendable.
