I had a party of 14 people last night at Skewers and the food was excellent. This is a great place for westerns and locals alike. We had a mixed group dinner with local Vietnamese people and Western people and all had a great time. We ordered 3 of the bread sample platters which was perfect to get the dinner... More

Found this restaurant because we couldn't be bothered by wandering too far from our hotel. What a great find. Food and service were great. We ate there 2 nights because the food was so good. Staff were efficient and friendly. Not overly expensive but more than we have been paying in other areas of Vietnam. Would definitely go back

First impressions of the restaurant were that the staff were very welcoming and the restaurant had a lovely ambience. My boyfriend went for the moussaka and I went for grilled chicken breast with couscous and salad. The meal sizes were big and the food was absolutely lovely. The prices are quite reasonable and they have a good selection of wines... More

We were in the mood for dinner with western food and wine and this restaurant seemed to fit the bill. We were right about this. We ordered some wine and the pita with four sauces. It was some of the best hummus I've had. We also had aioli. The pita was tasty. They also had crispy pita like crackers. We... More

They have all kinds of choices which interest me. And every meal is huge. I suggest that go with a bunch of friends and share meals.

In HCMC for a few days before starting a cruise. Saw this place while out walking near the hotel and thought it looked good. After checking the reviews, decided to give it a try. We would definitely go back. Great food, wide variety, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Waiter Fuad (spelling?) was so nice, efficient, cute and a little flirtatious!... More

It was good food- not quite French standards at not quite French prices. Waiters were helpful and non-intrusive. Good enough for us to eat there twice. On second occasion- in evening- a workman kept climbing in and out of second floor window probably to try to work on an air conditioner. We asked the waiter to get him to stop,... More

We went to Skewer on the strength of TA previous reviews. We were certainly not disappointed. The “Mediterranean” menu covers the ground from Lebanon to Turkey to Greece to Italy, We did focus on the various dips and broccoli carpaccio (there was a vegetarian in the group), as well as one of their “signature dish”, 1.5kg slow-cooked ribs – we...
