We went there for dinner last week after "being recommended" by TripAdvisor:-). The staff were very nice, the place is quiet and peaceful, but very plain, nothing special in design, and the food is just average, with very small portion. However, the price is unbelievably...More

Dear Jim, Thank you so much for your request. An e.mail with proper information that you might need was sent to your mail box. For any further requirement, would you please feel free to tell us at your best convenience. We... More
I read your response to my review. I find it sarcastic and rude, and I am shocked to see that a business can speak to it's customers in this way. The response seems to imply that this is not the first time I have visited and reviewed the restaurant; "you again Chris". I assure you that I and my "little Vietnamese girlfriend' have never been to your restaurant before. (We live in the south of Vietnam.) We stumbled on your restaurant by accident. The prices I am comparing are those which I am used to paying, and the opinion about the taste of the prawns was that of my girlfriend. Although I will now definitely tell people not to come to your restaurant, I want to know why you think it is appropriate to send a rude and sarcastic response to a customer who gave a truthful and objective opinion about your establishment.
