"Our friends booked this restaurant a few months ago for us
And it was excellent there were two tasting menus & we love good Resturants & this did not disappoint it should have a Michelin star & if it was any where else it would have
Service was first class as was the food
If your visiting semi reap book in advance it's a must"
"From the moment you arrive until you leave you will be delighted with your stay here. The reception is a really nice touch especially with the owners both greeting you and welcoming you to the hotel.
The rooms are spotless and the facilities very good. We had a river view double which has a great view of both the pool and the river.
By far the highlight has to be the food. It is exceptional and very reasonably priced considering the isolated nature of the hotel.
The hotel offers it's own various boat trips on the river for a variety of lengths and budgets and the your guide provided is very good.
We had a massage on our last night which was by far the best we had during our holiday in Vietnam.
Our only issue was that this sort of tranquil place should be adults only. There were a few kids staying during our stay who were quite annoying. In my opinion it's just not the sort of place where you expect to get hit by a ball from the pool when trying to relax. If children are of the age where all they want to do is play with a ball in the pool I don't understand why a parent would insist on dragging them around the world to do that when Benidorm or Tenerfie would be more suitable. It's not exactly as if they are taking in the local culture. The staff did approach the parents which calmed them down for a bit. I understand it must be difficult to turn away custom but I think the hotel would benefit long term by having a minimum age limit.
Regardless, we loved this hotel and the owners and all the staff are great and I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting South Vietnam and the Mekong Delta."
The Hue House: "Lovely Place with good food"
"Should to come with a special person of you from 04hPm to enjoy the sunset at this rooftop Res, enjoy wine and scenery on this place.
Open space with good food.
Just take a time to come here have dinner when you traveling in HCMC, will be the opportunity to explore for sure."
Rak Ko Jae Seoul: "A nice respite from a busy life and city"
Rak Ko Jae was truly a peaceful respite after a long day of travel to South Korea. I had read lots of reviews and expected the experience to be a little more... interactive perhaps? Really, this was a pretty solitary experience as we seemed to be the only ones there and only had contact with the staff at meal times. The hanok was smaller than I expected and very quaint. I woke up at 5am and actually WANTED to get out of bed and go outside and just sit and breathe the fresh air and listen to the sparrows sing and fly around me. It was so peaceful and quiet and still. (...) I highly recommend Rak Ko Jae, but I would also say to expect a very quiet and somewhat uneventful experience while you stay. The uneventfulness of our stay was a treat, and we didn't leave once between check-in and check-out! They even reminded us that check-out was 15 minutes away... we were aware, just trying to soak up every bit of our time there.
"This was superb! Had a lovely suite (206) and the lay out was very impressive. Mini bar items were complimentary and there was an Apple TV supplementing the normal TV.
We booked dinner for 8:00pm and were a little perturbed with the number of noisy children in the restaurant. The Executive Chef, Kevin Marchetti, stopped by to welcome us and wondered if we would be happier dining outside. We hesitated as we were nervous of insects as we would be sitting next to the riverside and he suggested we spray ourselves with insect repellant which he produced quite promptly. We accepted his suggestion and were very pleased that we did.
The Menu came on an iPad and there was a photo of every choice which was very helpful and not tacky like some places we have eaten at. The meal was superb and it was a pleasant evening to be sitting outside. And no bites!
The next day we took advantage of the boat shuttle into Saigon which was prompt and a pleasant experience.
There was a wedding scheduled on our last day and it was laid out really nicely.
As we were leaving, the Hotel were very accommodating and found comfy chairs where we could wait for our pick up taking us to the Airport.
All in all, a superb experience."
We are in Cambodia for two weeks, exploring temples, villages and markets. 4 Rivers was our third location and was unforgettable. The service from the friendly staff was excellent, the food was delicious and cooked fresh, and the trips were great. Fully recommended going the waterfall trip (be careful if you decide to kayak down the Rapids, it is more difficult than it looks, so confident swimmers only!) and also the mangroves. We spent our evenings playing games and hunting for geckos and insects - with the staff too!! It was great to turn off our phones and socialise properly! I miss it already - definitely worth a trip if you visit Cambodia!
Le Du Wine Bar & Restaurant: "A brilliant fusion of modern french with Thai flavours"
"Food at Le Du was quite exquisite. A simple menu with about 12 dishes in total spread across 4 courses. Each course has 3 dishes and you select each one for each of the 4 courses. The wine menu is extensive with reds from Portugal an interesting selection.
Fusing modern French culinary dining with a Thai twist by adding subtle flavors of Thailand really made the dishes unique and stand out. I generally find Thai food too overbearing sometimes being too sweet, too salty, or both on most occasions. Even the top ranked restaurants like Nahm the food is horrendously salty to be almost unpalatable. Gaggan can sometimes be equally overkill on the salt. But at Le Du for once I was always looking forward to the next dish to taste how the chef gently infused Thai flavors into the his creations and almost on all occasions he delivered. I thought the desserts failed to carry the brilliance all the way through to the end with the cheesecake dish tasting and looking like it was from BreadTalk with a scoop of ice cream added. Unfortunate considering the previous 3 dishes were outstanding. Will definitely give the restaurant another try when they change their menu.
David’s Kitchen: "Wonderful night for our 21st anniversary"
"After our initial plans to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary fell through, we were immensely grateful that David's Kitchen could not only accommodate us last minute, but make the night so special with those little extra touches..table decorations, anniversary card and flowers. The food was wonderful! Atmosphere perfect, from the moment we drove into the parking lot. The menu was extensive, with so many wonderful things to choose from. We will definitely have to go back again and try all the other menu items!
Thankyou to David and your staff for a wonderful evening."
Locavore: "Taste Bud Experience"
We did the 7 course lunch with drink pairing. It was a great experience and we highly recommend it. Every course was sensational. It was a 2.5 hour food session that we will remember for a long time! Only suggestion would be explanation cards on each dish and drinks written in English as the normal language barrier plus background noises made it very hard to take in everything our waitress was explaining. Thank you Lavacore and see you again next time we visit.
We loved every single moment of the 4 days we spent in this resort. The place is so beautiful and peaceful that you have impression of living in another planet. Great rooms (lake houses are top), super service, excellent food - all is perfect. The architecture of the place is amazing and the decoration has been done with great taste.
