Disappointment as first time here but have been to the Quan Bui 39 on Ly Tu Trong Street that was excellent for food and service. This location is lacking in good food and poor service which is strange since both places have same menu. Had shrimp soup ( shrimp way over cooked and like rubber ) , Vietnamese fried spring...

Quan Bui in district 2 is a very nice place to eat. Have NOT been to the other one in district 1. We are Australian and have had eaten there ( district 2 ) from time to time. We have 2 young boys and it has an extensive menu for fussy eaters. Good variety of vegetarian dishes. The surroundings are... More

I visited this place with my family and a friend who actually chosen that place. We went to resto right after arrival from airport, just stopped by hotel to drop the luggage. We were happy that it was our first place to eat out in HCMC. The food was great. We had some kind of "do it yourself" rolls, spicy... More

We ate here 2 nights out of our 3 in HCMC. Chicken in honey sauce and the chicken in tamarind sauce were delicious. The chicken is moist and tasty. Nice cubes of chicken that are tender. Price is good for the quality of the food and venue.

Food was quite good and I was satisfied with everything. Service just was not up to scratch. Only place we've been to in Vietnam that servers didn't have a smiley and sunny attitude towards customers. Maybe because 5 % is added to the bill for service anyway so they don't see the point...? But I've been to quite a few... More

Too many items on the menu that we didn't know what to choose. So we picked from the "specialty" page and had the mixed roll platter, tangy fish soup, seafood salad and casseroled beef with fish sauce. The rolls and salad were pretty good. But the tangy fish soup tasted like bland tomato soup with fish. Beef wasn't what we... More

Went for lunch and they were quite busy and they seated us across the street. We ordered crab fried rice, fish soup, steamed rice and a clay pot caramelized pork dish. We waited for over 30 min before 1 dish was served. The crab tasted frozen, the pork dish was extremely dry and I had to wait over 15 minutes... More

We had an excellent lunch here. Superb spring rolls and dishes served with wholesome brown rice. A freewheeling casual atmosphere. The ground floor room was not air-conditioned in December which was a real plus as the room was cleverly ventilated to maintain a cool natural ambience. This place is strongly recommended although we were guests and thus do not know... More

My family and I dined at Quan Bui late November. We found the quality of food and service to be excellent. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced for Saigon Restaurants. A real buzz in the restaurant -- make sure you make a reservation as it is very popular. All in all very memorable.

QUAN BUI IN HO CHI MINH CITY Once dearly called Diamond of the Far-east with the luxury level overriding that of Hongkong or Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Modern office skyscrapers, amidst Oriental style pagodas and food stalls along the street, create a dynamic urban area in very special sense. Dining in Saigon is quite easy and it is not a place where you will easily go hungry, regardless of your budget. Some of Vietnamese restaurants which cater to the business community are quite Westernized. If you insist on a crisp, white table cloth, we don't have it. But for those who want to enjoy real Vietnamese & Home made food and contemporary Saigon living, forget about all the tourist restaurants with their white linens and bloated prices, and instead dine where the Vietnamese do. Surely, you'll have a best experience once you try at Quan Bui. Quan Bui - Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine/ 17A Ngo Van Nam, D1 Quan Bui - Vietnamese Bistro/ First floor 39 Ly Tu Trong, D1 Enjoy your memorable stay in Viet Nam. QUAN BUI - AUTHENTIC VIETNAMESE CUISINE Nowadays many people can afford to eat good food in fine restaurants but they still have a subconscious desire to eat dishes which remind them of simple rural life and family warmth. The problem now is that most people with average incomes are quite busy and have very little time to make these country dishes at home. By listening to the needs of our customers, we at Quan Bui restaurant have gradually expanded our business, explored and developed our menu to offer traditional dishes in a home cooking style which fully captures the tastes of Vietnamese cuisine. To do this we use only natural ingredients for preparing the meals and never use artificial flavour enhancers (eg MSG). Delightful and fulfilling experiences for our customers are our paramount concerns. Therefore our service and cleanliness are basic, never-to-be compromised principles for us. We use real chicken stock in our soups and hot pots and we ensure the freshest ingredients by selecting suppliers carefully (getting to the markets early every morning). A speciality is our home-made tofu - which is deliciously and expertly prepared by our chefs in the open kitchen. Quan Bui Restaurant was ranked 17th out of more than 800 restaurants in Saigon on Tripadvisor (one of the most respected websites for tourists) so the restaurant's customers include many people from around the world (check us out and add your own comments, please!). Among the foreigners who frequent the restaurant are Japanese customers - who are known for their high standards and fondness for fine differences of flavour. Like all patrons, they adore the ambience and stylishness of our culinary space. Come and experience the real Vietnam! You will love it!
