Tried the bun thit noung which is pretty cheap here compared to other places, but it definitely shows. Will skip here and pay an extra 25000 dong for better quality elsewhere

We have been to this place 3 times during our visit of Ho Chi Minh and the restaurant is excellent. Menu is comprehensive, food delicious and all home-made. Staff is welcoming and speaks good english. Place is hidden from the rush of main streets, although still easily accessible. If you are looking for a good meal in District 1, Asian... More

We came here for dinner as it had a good review in our guide book. I thought the food was pretty average and the cocktail was not worth ordering. They also got our order wrong which meant that we had finished our meal before the dish was amended. Definitely nicer places to eat in Saigon.

You'll find the Asian Kitchen in a small street close to the Bui Vien street. The food we had (spring rolls, orange&honey chicken, fried shrimps with tamarind and the nutella pancake) was really tasty. We enjoyed the evening. The staff was also really nice and entertaining. We had the table next to the street which was not really comfortable (that'... More

I had the coconut curry, it wasn't bad, but their wasn't a lot of curry and comes with a small bowl of rice, they seem to have happy hour but was not able to tell what time it was, they have wifi and lots of room, If your feeling adventurous they do offer a lot of variety of crocodile meat...

We had a couple of meals here during our week in HCMC. This was our favourite of the restaurants in the area with a great choice of options and very nice staff. We didn't get to try the crocodile dishes this time but will make a point of doing so next time.

Food is not bad. Prices aren't too high, but when You seat, in every minute some street salers from outside come to You and want to sell You something, for example eyeglasses, cigaretes, books, magnets, suvenirs etc. Staff let street sellers to disturb guests while they are waiting for meat and eating.
