    Peaceful simple lime green and dark wood with whitewashed decor.

    Good place to have a meal and relax with friends.

    Spotlessly clean like a Swiss chalet.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood spring rolls

    Sweet potato chips

    Many dishes from all three Vietnam regions

    how can you pick? ok lets say what if? a california chef who was in the gormet ghetto in the early 80's and cooked Vietnamese food added with the new california movement then went to
    Vietnam and is now serving Peets coffee, home made bagels, granola, vegi bergers and other california staple to the vietnamese in thier own country!. geoff and Thuy the married partners work with thier family and close friends to bring this new approch to Vietnam.

    The most popular transportation here is the motorbike, but i don't think that there are any rules on the roads there.It was quite dangerous experience to get like a taxi one of those motobikes!

Saigon Warnings and Dangers

  • by canaydn Written Oct 25, 2012

    I would suggest Saigon is a place to avoid (its worse than a ghetto in America). I have visited every country in Southeast Asia and i have never had a safety issue. Upon arrival in in Vietnam I was scammed right from the start. The exchange rate agent tried to rip me off, then the taxi driver. After that i was robbed for almost 1000 dollars in a very popular crowded tourist area of the city. I had no recourse because every local person told me the police are useless and they are all part of the crime game, if not the bosses!!! Never go here.
