If you’re looking for a family-friendly Mother’s Day dining option that will satisfy the biggest of appetites at a wallet friendly price, why not check out Moi Moi? For just $258, its seriously good value “Flavours of Vietnam” semi-buffet dinner includes a selection of appetisers, a choice of main course, a seasonal fruit platter, daily desserts and a cup of ginger tea. Its appetisers, like Saigon Minced Prawn on Sugar Cane, Nha Trang BBQ Satay Pork Sticks and Quang Nam Jicama and Herb Spring Rolls, are definitely not to be missed. While for mains we would be hard pressed to choose between the Signature Raw Wagyu Beef Pho or the Hai Phong Seafood Rice Vermicelli in Stone Pot. A special dessert will also be thrown in for all Sassy Mama readers. And did we mention that two kids can dine free for every paying adult and for every five adults in your party ordering the semi-buffet, one adult meal will be free (you can’t ask for more than that!). This offer runs from Saturday, 11 May to Monday, 13 May and dinner is served from 6pm to 9pm. So gather the troops and book online to make sure you secure your table!
