we wanted to order crab. acc. to menu 350.000 vnd but the waiter said the price changed to 400 already a long time ago! we ordered springrolls instead. These contained more dough than anything else. Nothing like any of the springrolls anywhere in Ho Chi Minh. We dont go back to this place.

We chose Thu Tam for our last dinner on the island and I must say we we left very underwhelmed. We were eating on a pretty tight budget so shared a grilled squid dish, with rice and noodles. The sate squid was very expensive (even by Con Dao standards) at 200,000 D. It arrived after about 20 minutes, pre chopped... More

I was in the restaurat yesterday night with 3 friends. We enjoy the food and the price is ok. It is a big restaurant with enough tables for big and small groups.You can see alive fish in the fish tanks. If there is a but, was the service. We got two dishes and 15 minutes later the other two.

I am a local and I found this restaurant food is mediocre. We ordered a chicken hotpot and the manager or perhaps owner said there would be half a chicken. But the pot came with all the bony parts and no drumstick or meat. The grilled squid was cold. Service was slow but the staff was polite. The atmosphere was... More

Went here for lunch and enjoyed it very much. Many Vietnamese eat here which is always a good sign. Fantastic spring rolls

This restaurant has mixed reviews but we were happy with it. Food was good and the atmosphere was fine. We were served by one surly waiter and one very jolly one - the latter compensated for the former; if we had not been looked after by the jolly waiter as well we might not have enjoyed it so much. Definitely... More

Ate here several times over a week on Con Dao, simply because it was by far the best we experienced. As foodies, we really appreciate great, local food, in local settings. This is a restaurant for locals (although there are menus in English). Lots of friendly locals / families, all eager to help us if we ran into any minor... More

This was no doubt our favourite restaurant on Con dao. The range of seafood and fish was superb, and the quality extremely good. Also for the meat dishes. I also highly recommend the sticky garlic rice (we ordered this every time) and any of the hotpots. We ate here more than 10 times and were never disappointed!

The food was very, very good but our bill was incorrect on both occasions we went to this place to eat, also it seemed that there were two price list menus... I cannot say with certainty that we were being ripped of, and if I had no questions I would have rated this place much higher. I am not sure,... More
