Quan Com Chay Cuong

Reviewed By Johunly

Service wasn't really good, unfortunately the staff spoke just a little English, so communication was a bit difficult.the food came quickly after ordering, we had three different dishes which have all been good where as they weren't special. Prices are cheap.

Nem nuong Thanh Van

Reviewed By tripanozom

Please dont come here with an expectation of the best food place in Can Tho. As somebody wrote, the food is not authentic, spring rolls frozen from supermarket, menu large as any European asian fast food but half of the menu is not available. The taste of some dishes is very good, some of them pretty average. Waitress/cook confused the order, guests neglected.

Reviewed By carrielow

After reading many positive reviews, we decided to give it a try, something different, for a change. The prices are easily 10X more than the local restaurants in Can Tho. Ambience was cosy and relaxing. Nice river view on the 4th floor. Weather was gloomy so no sunset. The house red wine, Cab Sauvignon was decent. Service was attentive since we were the only guests arrived early. We ordered the seafood steamboat as recommended by the waitress. My son opted for Western, pan-roasted duck breast with mushroom sauce, as recommended by the waitress too. The steamboat was not bad, but it’s with some sweetness in the soup (tasted like a sweetened Tom yam soup) that wasn’t appealing to me. Portion was just nice for 2 pax (we are not big eater). My son liked his medium to well pan-roasted duck breast, served with french fries (what disappointment for a dish @ 320K dong). Hubby tried it and commented ‘good’. The restaurant wasn’t crowded. Didn’t hear any music played in the restaurant. But the roof top Bar on the opposite building had loud music, kind of annoying and ruined the atmosphere. My desert, cream brûlée’s was nice.However, my hubby and son had bad diarrhoea on the same night, few hours after the dinner. Poor them as we didn’t have medicine and no pharmacy in sight. Hotel staff with poor and close to none English. I didn’t have any problem (the only dish I didn’t eat was the duck breast).Not a good experience for us, except nice photos with river view lol. Dear Carrielow.Sorry you did not find what you were looking for. Gloomy weather doesn't help feeling happy, either.I am sure you will understand we cannot serve french cuisine at Cần Thơ street prices. But then, if you compared, you may have tasted the wrong street food? Street vendors, especially at the night market, are notoriously unreliable, and I can't see how duck magret with fries, if this is the only plate you didn't taste, may have put your man and son at risk. We would usually serve it cooked to pink and I expect not with fries. Was it a special order?Anyhow, I hope your party is feeling better and that the weather gives you more reason to cheer.Take care along your journey,Benoit

Tomato - Pad Thai

Reviewed By David B

This had a high Trip Advisor rating, but still I had second thoughts when I saw it. Don't worry, go in. Food was great, staff spoke a tiny bit of English and the prices were amazing. I think they are getting lot's of business now thanks to TripAdvisor, but continue to offer great value, congrats to them. Nice to support a small local business and get a great tasty meal (don't forget the cold beer!) Then you can walk the waterfront and see the tourists paying 20X more for food not as good.
