Enjoyed wonderful dinner at Dao Place recently. The ambience of the restaurant and decor enhanced the experience. The story behind the restaurant is wonderful and the variety of dishes based on classic traditional Vietnamese food is wonderful, we enjoyed the fresh spring rolls, crispy pancake, spicy fried squid and highly recommend the green rice flaked prawns. Oh, and the fried banana with coconut was a fantastic way to finish dinner

Delicate vietnamese flavours in mango salad and fried fish on mango strips. Mr Son was a very helpful guide as we asked questions about how the food was cooked. He brought a mango and shredder to our table to show how they made the mango strips for the salad. We don't normally eat desert but the fried banana with coconut dip piqued our interest - essential to try with the free Vietnamese tea to complement the flavours. The 10% discount as we were staying at the nearby Avanti Hotel was an added bonus. Highly recommended.

We were looking for an authentic Vietnamese restaurant to try new recipes.
On Tripadvisor, we found DAO Place, which had a number of great reviews, so off we went to try their menu items.
The service was very, very friendly and they offered their help in choosing home-made dishes.
What an absolute treat!
We tried a number of appetizers (or starters) and several entrees. All were superb.
But if there is one dish to try -- try the shrimp ravioli -- outstanding.
If you want a low key, friendly place to have a quiet dinner, this is the place.
It is all about Vietnamese food.

It was our last night in Saigon and I had been checking out reviews of places near our hotel on TripAdvisor. Well you get lots of different views and were none the wiser but I thought this restaurant sounded really good. What a great choice that was.

We tried the mango salad (absolutely divine), the catfish in caramel clay pot (amazing), shrimp fried rice, and bahn xio. We also ordered some green in garlic, but in many ways it was thankful it didn't arrive as we were stuffed! So so delicious, we both agreed it was one of the best meals we had had in Vietnam.

We were charged initially for the greens but this was soon sorted out - definitely think it was an error only. We walked out of the restaurant very happy indeed.

Definitely would recommend.
