We ordered Mushroom Pancake and Shrimp Pancake with pork. We think that were the best Pancakes we have ever had, the staff were very nice, they show us how to eat those Pancake the right way. We definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Coming here for dining with our tour guide and this is absolutely good place to try "banh xeo". Being heard about this typical dish but this is the first time i tried. I was clumsy in rolling. The green leaf (bigger than bok choy) is hard to wrap then I fail with the first one but then it is OK... More

1. There is a price to pay to be a tourist. 2. Service lax, maybe because we were there at 10 AM. 3. Limited drinks menu (no ice coffee here). 4. Indoor but no AC 5. Best thing here is not the banh xeo but the spring roll. 6. My first and last visit.

Split a banh xeo with shrimp and pork (a large paper thin crunchy 'crepe' kind of) between two people and it was very good and quite filling. Service was pretty bad, empty restaurant, stone cold disinterested and unengaged faces, and little attention paid to us. Who cares though, good enough food for a quick pop in to taste one of...

Banh xeo somehow is the must try food when travel here in Vietnam. There are many kinds of banh xeo here, from tradition with bean sprout to mushroom inside, pork and duck... The food was great to enjoy even it is a bit expensive but it worth there in the center of the city. Banh khot is also a wonderful... More

I have eaten banh xeo so many times before, but this place is definitely worth 5 stars. I give a bonus point for the well-selected Southwestern music. Everything, including the tables and chairs, the staff's clothes, is carefully crafted to reflect an authentic feeling. I had the traditional shrimp and pork banh xeo. The skin is crunchy, and the green... More

The Ban Xeo is the main dish which needed to be wrapped in huge leaf with various greens dipped in the sauce. The stuff snail is an appetizer before the main dish again everything has to be wrapped in salad and different greens. The Ban Xeo crust is crispy but should be a bit thicker. The inside was rather bland... More

We went there following recommendation from Vietnamese friends for best afternoon snacks. The place was easy to locate (5 minutes walk from Reunification Palace). From the outside, the joint looks like a bit rundown because their cooking kitchen located outside. Once we walked further into their shop, we were shown an aircondioned seating room away from the heat outside. The... More

Good Banh Xeo, in this famous restaurant. But nothing extraordinary with these Banh Xeo, but not the best in Vietnam,.. Very good, smiling and friendly staff.

The banh xeo was quite good, but the lack of cleanliness detracted from the place. It looked like no one had taken a mop to the place in months. It could have gotten that way in one day, I suppose, but it just didn't seem very hygienic. We live in Vietnam, so I know that good food can come from... More
