We chose The Matchbox for Christmas dinner - and it turned out to be the perfect choice! Not only was the food very reasonably priced, but portions were large, and everything was prepared perfectly. We had the Aussie steak and "complimentary" turkey that was moist and delicious. It came with a Greek salad, garlic bread, potatoes, fresh asparagus and what may have been the best tiramisu that I've ever tasted. Staff was attentive and friendly, even giving diners free cider and peanuts. There was good live music, too - a guitarist and violinist - not too loud and the music was very nice.

We've since been here two more times - once for the Aussie steak special that is only 199,000 VND (every Monday), that includes a glass of wine, potatoes, asparagus and baked tomato, and a second time for pasta. Each time, the Matchbox has exceeded our expectations. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of food, the attractive presentation, the high standard of service and the sophisticated ambiance. Highly recommended.
