This hidden gem is probably one of the finest places to dine in HCMC.
Dress code is necessary, so ladies don’t forget to stop by your hairdresser before going there! Being feminine and dressed for a dinner, I love it!. No possibility to meet folks running around in flips flops or shorts and no children under 12 years old wondering around as young children are also not welcome. I have a lovely daughter, but I recognize it is very sweet sometimes to have dinner in a quite place only disturbed by the sound of the wine being poured into your glass and pleasant conversation in the air. In R&J, all the details have been taking care of. I was impressed!
The service is outstanding, and the atmosphere with tamed light makes your evening a promising one. When you read the menu, you will find difficult to decide cause everything sounds amazing and you want to try it all. They have a few options in set menus even a vegetarian one, and you can eat “A la carte” if you prefer. Here a few examples of most popular dishes: Octopus, organic leaves, salmon roe, green beans, hazelnut dressing, Polo baked with clay-crusted chicken, fresh herb, garlic, and seasonal vegetable.
Our table tried two different Set menus, the “Mare Set“ with delicious seafood and fish, five courses 788.000++ and the “Terra Set” with a risotto perfectly cooked, excellent meat with many other exquisite products (5 courses) proposed for 888,000 Vnd++.
R&J is a place where you like to take the time to appreciate the taste, the flavors, the textures and the food presentation.
For a special night, R&J is your best options in town, it will not disappoint you!
