Enjoy going here for almost any american dish. The servings are big and taste good. Service is good and fast. Most of all the environment is relaxing...great escape from the craziness of HCMC.

I am not sure if a reservation is necessary for Sunday. It's a small place. If you are near there, stop in and ask if you need. Take care and enjoy !
