“Go riverside instead.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Went on this dinner cruise at the end of June, boat cruised up and down the river a few times and was scenic if you were fortunate enough to be seated on the chairs facing out to the river rather than the ones we were placed on which looked inwards to the buffet. Lots of entertainment music dancing etc throughout the night which was very loud therefore limiting ability for conversation. Buffet meal was plentiful but typical of buffet food, quality ok but not wow. I felt the cruise was pricey and would recommend to others to choose a nice riverside restaurant for better value.

“Enjoy Saigon with dinner cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

This river cruise reflects the most beautiful side of Saigon. It's every bit enjoyable from live Ao dance performances to dining in romantic luxury. It's a feast from Indo appetizers to fried fillet de bar fish, grilled pork + banh hoi, cooked chicken w/ mushroom and beef saute veggies. This should be the highlight of your Saigon tour.

“Night Time Dinner Option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The boat was large and catered for our group of 50+ very well and something all groups should definitely do especially at this time of the year when it's so hot the breeze was delightful - superb range of cuisine, great performance by the singers/dancers/magician and not too long
