Com Nieu Sai Gon
The walls are blank and only a few plants hang, so the most notable parts of the decor of this restaurant are the broken clay pots that pile up on the floor as the night goes on. Order the Com Dap, "smashed rice," for the entertaining bowl-breaking, rice-throwing spectacle. Other highlights of the long, southern Vietnamese menu include thit kho nuoc dun (long simmering pork with coconut milk) and ca keo kho to (fish cooked in a clay pot) at around USD1.50 each. A decent list of beers, juices and liquors is also available.
We read about this restaurant and found it most disappointing. The service was terrible and they were not able to understand our simple requests for drinks. No wine, spirits, sparkling or soda water by the glass. The fish hot pot was filled with too much garlic and the fish was shocking. The plate smashing was really annoying (we were there for dinner not a circus show). The prices were high and the waiters rude, so this would rate as our worst HCM experience.
Maybe expected too much after reading about Anthony Bourdain's experience.Were seated in downstairs cellar with no atmosphere, waiter's service was terrible. Chicken was worst we had in Vietnam, esp for the price compared to other local spots(try lemongrass chicken at Kim's Cafe for the real stuff)! The best dish we had between 5 people was the famous flying rice cake - will definitely not recommend this restaurant!
List this place in to your "so so" cat. Neither a fancy restaurant nor a cheap place to eat. I didn't enjoy my lobster dish that much but other foods are alright. Love the environment there...roomy. Yes, it's a crowded place probably 'cuz words of mouth. I went there because one of the Nam Tran's Videos. Give it a try but don't expect too much from this place.
It's kinda place if you have nothing else in mind, you don't want something special but good food with many choices and okay price.
Be careful with "cơm ni�u show", a pot can fall on your head or your lap.
It's always crowded.
I have heard many friends who travelled to HCM and are food lovers that I must try this restaurant. I did, and yes, the was good, but the price is outrageous for Vietnam. It's very tourist and if you just want a good, quiet meal to have to friends, then this is not the restaurant to visit.
