Recently had dinner with a couple of local friends. The food menu was fairly large and it offered an array of options. Large assortment of meat, vegetarian, and seafood plates to share. The liquor menu was marginal though they had some Highway4 specialty drinks for 60-120.000.
Overall I do not believe that the quality of the food matched the price. Many of the plates were over 100 and provided limited portions. The service was reasonable though they quit pouring drinks after the first five minutes.
All-in-all, there are better places for those looking for a "slight" premium restaurant.
My house is pretty far from this place but I still come here quite often for the "Stone grills". There are no "stone grills" in other Highway4, only in Mai Hac De. I recommend the Salmon Stone grill, it tastes fantastic and costs about 130,000vnd which is a very good value for Salmon's fans. Ostrich Stone grill is good too, very soft and juicy.
L'enchantement de la première visite, il y a un an, s'est évaporé...Highway 4 vit grâce à sa réputation, sa présence dans la plupart des guides touristiques...MAIS : pour y être allée à plusieurs reprises ces derniers temps, j'affirme que ce n'est plus vraiment un plaisir...La carte est généreuse mais de nombreux plats ne sont plus disponibles même tôt dans la soirée. Les plats commandés, il faut les commander 3 fois car ils n'arrivent jamais. La terrasse ? C'est vrai, c'est un très bel endroit, sauf qu'au rez-de-chaussée on vous dit : "sorry, it's full"...je suis montée et il y avait 3 tables de disponibles, pas réservées, ni rien du tout...le personnel a juste la flemme de monter et descendre les escaliers ! et le personnel, vraiment énervé/énervant...
Ah oui, il paraît qu'ils livrent...mais alors je ne vois pas quand, car après avoir essayé à plusieurs reprises, cela s'est avéré un échec à chaque fois...
Bref, une fois ça passe, 3 fois, ça lasse, vraiment...
A group of us went here for lunch today and ate ourselves silly! I had no idea what to order but thankfully the people that I was with had been here a number of times so knew exactly what was on offer.
Saying that though, the plates that were ordered were very exotic. It ranged from a mountain pig dish (apparently a small pig that only grows to 20kg!), jellyfish salad, soft-shelled crab, some other things which I'd never tasted before and your usual sides of rice and soup. (The fried rice was to die for!) We drank sweetcorn juice. :) Ooh, and don't worry about the menus, all the dishes have English translations.
However, the place is nicely styled. The room we were sitting in had a raised seating area where you would perch (sit cross-legged in my case) on a pillow next to a low table.
The food was great! Most of the dishes we had were beautifully presented. The service I experienced today was satisfactory. My only two complaints were that the music was a tad too loud (loud enough so it was difficult hearing the person across the table), and the boiled and fried rice came after all the other dishes which was a little strange.
I think my companions picked the cheap deals because we only ended up with a bill for 450k between 6 people! Very reasonable!
Anyway, I would thoroughly recommend Highway 4. I will definitely be coming here again.
