The place is well decorated, food was OK and a bit low value for the money we paid, service was good. Still a nice place to have traditional Vietnamese dishes.

I went there for lunch by myself. A waiter guided me upstairs and seated me. Having waited for nearly 15 minutes without any person to take my order, I decided to leave with a few negative comments. The male manager on the first floor was too arrogant to listen to my feedback.

I love vietnamese food and Quan Bui in distruct 1 does a fairly good job on some of the traditional home food dishes and we love it. However they opened one up in D2 Thao Dien and the setting is quite nice in a garden atmosphere but the food is just disappointing. The same dishes we order in D1 is... More

The food itself was very good - tasty and the portions were generous. Recommend to go in group to enjoy different dishes as each of them is fantastic. My favourite dishes is: Braised pork meat with coconut meat eating with rice, Morning glory stir fried with Garlic and Tangy hemibagrus fish soup with chopped tomato and dill. These things make...

Great spot tucked away in Thao Dien. Excellent for vegan and vegetarians. Spring rolls, tofu done with 'satay' sauce, great noodle and rice dishes. They do a fairly good margarita too. A little bit on the more expensive side, but worth it.

Spring rolls, Vietnamese salads, honey chicken, and soft shell crab were all amazing and among the best I have tasted. We loved it here and would go back if our time here was longer. Great decor to make it even better.

Brought there by my brother. Loved the jasmine flowers vegetables. Wanted to try pumpkin flowers but ran out. On that street are other excellent eateries. Best I can describe the meal is home cooked family style. Nothing elaborate.

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!
