Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good hearty and flavourful food with great service. We arrived during a downpour and we’re relieved to get inside and have something to eat. Friendly and efficient service, food arrived in good time.

Excellent lunch. I wanted quick and delicious. There are many choices here in Saigon, and this just grabbed my attention. I’m glad it did. The service was excellent and so was the food. The prices were reasonable for an upscale restaurant.

The food here was very good. I had Tacos and enchiladas there at different times. The food was always fresh and tasty. I would recommend it highly.. it’s a smaller restaurant.

Food is so so. Waiters’ attitude is beyond terrible. Especially the boy with short hair. On top of all that, I asked 2 of the waiters to turn off the fan twice. But they ignored my request. This restaurant should not exist in Saigon which...is known for our hospitality.More

We decided to try some Mexican food and overall it was nice. The steak quesadilla was delicious and would highly recommend. My wife got a couple of tacos and to be honest the filling could have been a lot more but they tasted fine. We...got the lime cinnamon and pineapple drinks which were very good.More

This is not the cheapest mexican you'll find in HCMC, but hey it's pretty affordable (very), and of very very good standard. The whole experience was lovely. From an efficient welcome to a great atmosphere, comfortable tables and spacing, through two courses of fantastic food...(the sangria is pretty good too, just a little sweeter than it needs to be perhaps), we both had a lovely evening there. Great background music, but in the background, great service, and well, just everything we hoped for in an evening meal together!More

We came for lunch and had a delicious array of vegetarian dishes. Cozy atmosphere tucked away from busy streets, set in a gorgeous courtyard of restaurants. The food was delicious, fresh and healthy and the staff were lovely and helpful. We will definitely return!
