The food here is second to none, make sure you try the friend seafood spring rolls they are fantastic. Every dish we had was great and the service excellent. The deep friend squid was great and the battered friend crabs also. A very busy and noisy place and the locals love it.

Was recommended to us by our hotel. Had the dumpling and pork pho. Broth was amazing and served hot! Very busy place. Only downside was English was at a minimum but with some pointing, we were able to get what we needed. Would return :) the hot pot looked great.

Visited with my family after a suggestion from our hostel. Not a single member of the hugh staff spoke even the most basic english expected from a restaurant employee. We couldn't get coke, extra glass or a simple explanation about the menu for example -what does a "combination" include. The food really wasn't too bad, tho we got cold spring... More

Walked past and noticed how busy it was one night . Decided to try it for a late dinner at 9 pm. It was still very busy for a saturday night . Noticed an extensive menu with fresh live seafood in tanks downstairs. As we were full from eating and snacking all day, a friend and I shared a plate... More

Stumbled across Din Ky on TripAdvisor, and visited with friends - food selection was quite exotic and delicious! Would recommend if you are an adventurous type and visiting Vietnam with friends. Food is tasty and affordable. The place is usually packed full but there are two floors! The location on TripAdvisor is wrong though!

Went here based on previous reviews and was throughly disappointed. The was a bit of a language issue since most staff didn't understand English but still it should not have been a problem. We ordered our food and drinks by point at what we wanted from the menu. The service was slow and didn't not have waiters come check with... More

We were recommended this place for the hotpot by our hostel and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Locals dine here and a few tourists too. It was packed!! The menu has a whole array of Chinese and Vietnamese dishes and if you feel up for it, even crocodile meat 😱. We went for the seafood hot pot (pricey at 357000 dong... More

Cantonese influenced restaurant on 2 floors, mostly frequented by locals, very wide menue including testicles and suchlike. We preferred chicken with lemongrass, fish in different varieties. BiaSaigonRedPriceIndex was at 14, good value-for-money ratio

Visited later aat night, around 8:30 on the recommendation fo our hotel desk. My buddy had just arrived and we needed a place to eat. The restaurant was crowded, but we were able to get a table immediately. We ordered gung pao gi ding and a tofu dish as well as a soup and white rice. A manager or owner... More
