Located along Port Road in Hindmarsh, My Tho City is a good place to enjoy a decent range of Vietnamese cuisine. Among the dishes offered are those that uses crocodile meat, an ingredient that we rarely see in restaurants.
One of the hot pot dishes that can be ordered, the cutlets of Pacific Dori used in their Traditional Pacific Dori Fish Cutlet was tender enough to be easily separated from the bone. The sauce subtly enhanced the flavour of the dish and a scattering of what looked like fried shallots added some crunch to the dish.

Their Grilled Pork Chop was of a generous size and while it was cooked just right, we thought it could do with a bit more "char-grilled" flavour to make the dish more delectable. Served with the dish were some pickled vegetables whose tangy taste complemented the pork chops well.

To balance out our meat dishes, we ordered the Vegetarian Hot Pot in Chilli Bean. All the vegetables still had a bite to them and the inclusion of some strips of tofu provided a bit of extra texture. The use of chilli bean in the sauce added a bit of heat to the dish but it was mild enough that the dish can be enjoyed by those not used to spicy foods.

The décor of the restaurant give it the feel of a formal Asian restaurant. The tables were spaced a good distance apart from each other. Street parking is available on the street where the restaurant is located and there is a small carpark at the back of the restaurant offering the option of off-street parking.
