We chose this as being relatively close to our hotel, and it looks lovely. We decided to sit in the garden, which may have contributed to the proems we later experienced. We were given two large menus and a smaller menu with just photos of food on. We spent a while deliberating then, when we started ordering, were told that... More

Great food - honey chicken, brown rice and cashews, etc - and great décor in a vintage Vietnam sort of way. Recommend any of Quan Bui's locations.  Bistro and Garden are better locations if you want to avoid some of the street nightlife.

Located off of a major street but easy to find. A nice variety of local dishes on the menu. Not a high-end restaurant but nice and clean.

On this visit we were indoors which lacks the lovely ambience of the roof terrace. However the food is delicious - banana flower salad warmly recommended. Quick and efficient service.

Stopped in for a quick lunch yesterday and immediately fell in love with this place. It can be a little difficult to find but its there. I had fried pho with beef. It was awesome. Service was also very attentive. Cost was super reasonable. I can see this becoming one of my favorites. There was nothing about it I did... More

Mu mum always told m tat if you can't say anything nice don't say it. We went here during Tet for an authentic Vietnamese dinner, their chicken in local honey was so dry that when I mentioned this to the guy on the cash register he immediately took it off the bill. My experience was that you cold get better... More

Was sent here by the hotel staff as one of the top restaurants in Saigon. It is supposedly so popular that their are two Quan Bui's that face each other on the same street. We decided to enter the one with less people, however they offer the same menu. Our dinner and service was so excellent, that we returned the... More

Description
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!
