Beautiful riverside location and a good menu that offers both local and international cuisine. Would especially recommend the Mekong River Weed.

Nice spot for a sunset cocktail. Super expat vibe but good interesting cocktails. Didn’t eat here, not sure if I would. But really pretty view, as is with most of the places on this road.
