Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I give this restaurant 4 stars because of their location is too small and my family had to sit in the same table with other family during lunch. And foods served slow.

One of the best com tam I'd tried in Saigon, with soft and tender pork chop, very soft and moist rice, chã is one the best I tried so far and sauces is well taste. Pricing at 140k dong ($9 aud), for pork chop with...chã and rice relatively expensive for Vietnamese people. However beware of the pricing charge, no menu with price on it (no transparent), offering tea but might include in the charges, even customers don't drink or ask for it. Like many restaurant in Saigon, restaurant leave wet wipe on the table and when customers don't use it they still get charges, which I found very shifty. I happy to provide tips but dishonest business should be prohibited! Three star rating for the food but no star for service and no star for the pricing transparency.More

It was smoky place as they do the grilling next to your table. Taste was good but service was so slow. Overall, an average experience. They do not open for dinner time.

I’ve eaten a lot of Cơm tấm sườn nướng in Seattle and in Ho Chi Minh and this place by far has the best tasting meat. I had the pleasure last year to try them out recommended by a friend who visits Vietnam every year...and I made sure to come back to bring my wife. They grill the meat out front and you can really taste the deep rich smoke flavor and seasonings. Super tender and flavorful pair it up with Nuoc Mam, pickled vegetables, egg and broken rice oh what a tasty meal. Good portion as we both left super full and ready for a nap. Anytime I am in Ho Chi Minh I will always be sure to get a bite to eat here as I’ve had nothing comes close to the quality. The accompanying soup was also very delicious, great broth! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience for me and my wife who can be hard to please 🤣. I’ll be back again before to eat one of my favorite dishes before I leave to Hanoi and back to America! Try coming early especially if you see the chef out front grilling, we were lucky to get the last 2 soups and Cơm tấm sườn nướng.More

After reading many reviews on the Internet, many discussion about the Com Tam (broken rice) here. We decided to see the reality there is going on. It is worth for you to try Com Tam although it is much more expensive than the others. But...you will get what you pay for. Waiting for the food too long is considered as the minus point of this restaurant, even there were few locals there.More

Had a pretty good broken rice I.e. Com tam with bbq pork chops, which was juicy and sweet. A bit pricey but portions are ample and you definitely won't go hungry. Comes with a few choices of soup as well.
