Maybe to be in Vietnam this is considered great Indian food? But to be honest this is very average indian food compared what you can get in forinstence Europe. Can not in my world see how this is ranked so high.

We had the mango fish curry, chicken samosas, paneer butter masala, and of course garlic naan. It was the best, spiciest, tastiest Indian meal we've had in two years, since we spent a month there. Great service, too. Thanks guys.

One of the best places in Saigon serving great food at reasonable prices. Great gesture by offering bottled water and fruits on the house.
