A hidden gem

Photo of Lemongrass

What we say: 4 stars

Down a slightly concealed street, close to the Sheraton Hotel, Lemongrass is a hidden gem for those in the know.

Their attractive dining room is on the smaller side, so hopefully you're okay with getting intimate with those around you because it is regularly full to capacity. Making a reservation is highly recommended if you don't like a wait.

The menu features southern Vietnamese cuisine, with an emphasis on seafood, and is geared more toward tourists than locals, which is evident in their customer base and prices.

Dishes here are served family style, so the more people in your group, the more dishes you get to try.
