We had dinner here on the terrace a couple of weekends ago. The staff were attentive and the city view was great. And just before the rain started, we were swiftly and smoothly moved to a table inside! I'm not familiar with the type of oysters that Chanh serves but they were fresh and delicious. The pan fried duck breast was the stand-out main. All in all, good value if you want to eat outside.

Dear DivePanther,

Many thank you for your kind review.

Our oysters are 'fine de claire' from Nha Trang. We serve them ever Thursdays to Sundays every week. They are delivered overnight to our bistro, and we serve them till the stock lasts: VND159,000 a platter. We are delighted you liked them.

Your comments are encouraging and motivating us to convince you to give us a 5 star-review next time you visit us! :-)

We hope to see you back on our rooftop soon, perhaps for our happy hour every day from 2pm to 6:30pm where you can buy 1 get 2 on wine by the glass, cocktails and spirits&mixer.

We look forward to seeing you here again soon.

Have a great day!

Kind regards,
Phuong

Visited with my mum and son for dinner. Wow, absolutely amazing food, service and ambience. We were made to feel so welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Cannot recommend the Creme Brûlée enough, best I have had

My friend and I wanted to have French food and I found Chanh just literally a few doors away from our hotel and it also has a rooftop bistro. Though the bistro is not very high up it had a good view of the lights in the evening. This is because it was just across the street from Bitexco Tower and you can also see some of the buildings along Nguyen Hue.

It was a very pleasant evening as it was very breezy even though, like I said earlier the rooftop wasn't very high up. I am not sure if it is this breezy every evening. The complemetary welcome drink was very refreshing.

We each had a different set dinner menu so we can try more items on the menu. The food was good except for the steak which I ordered. I am sure this was an exception but it happened to have a lot of tendons and I was really struggling to cut it. I brought this to the attention of the staff to see what they will do. Besides apologising to me and explaining to me that it was probably the supplier who overlooked. When we settled the bill, the staff concerned did not charge us for the 2 beers that we had.

Dear KY28,

We are glad you found us! Many thanks for your positive review, and your visit on our rooftop!

Our rooftop is only on the 8th floor, but as you said it has a pleasant setting and beautiful views over the city, including the Bitexco Tower.

Glad you enjoyed the food. We took good note of your comments about the steak and took action. Thanks for mentioning the complementary beers off your bill.

We wish you well, and a safe trip if you continue your travel.

Have a great day!

Kind regards,
Phuong

Ordered Tiramisu for my partner's birthday and quietly requested for a candle. After our dinner, the team came with a candle lid up and they sang the birthday song in unison. To top it off, they waived the tiramisu charge from our bill, I was so swooned over by their kind gesture. <3

Food wise, it was a pleasant dinner. We had lamb shank and shredded pork which are delicious. The wine helps too ;) Ambience was just perfectly sweet, we could enjoy lights from the surrounding buildings.

Lucky that we came for an early dinner since we did not reserve prior. Believed, after 8 would be more thronged since we saw other tables are reserved.

Thanks Chanh Bistro Rooftop :)
