Various Thai food

The very first time we had a Pad Thai like it is supposed to be in Vietnam was here, in Coriander. I had the curry, which I found a tad sweet, but that's just southern Vietnamese cuisine. Downside was that their power was out, but that was repaired after 45 minutes or so.

The worst Thai food I have ever eaten! Doesn't even resemble Thai food and I was sick the two times I ate there.

We stayed in backpackers district one while in Saigon and ate at the Coriander restaurant two times. The food was excellent on both occasions, the prices very reasonable and service was good. The staff will get someone that speaks english more fluently if you have questions. We had the whole fried sea bass in 3 spices sauce which was out... More

My girlfriend and me were very keen on eating thai cuisine in Saigon and trusted the recommendations on Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor. Unfortunately our expectations didn't match reality. The food tasted boring and worse than average. The meal was cooked without any ideas and the way it looked was very poor and plain. The restaurant might be interesting for someone... More

My wife, daughter and I stumbled upon this tiny restaurant at the top end of Bui Vien and only went in as we liked the name. What a find! Amazing Thai curry, very friendly and efficient service and unbelievably cheap.

Amazing food, cheap prices and great service. We ended up on a small table where you sit on the floor, great atmosphere to do that.

I arrived just before they close after lunch (closed from 2pm until 5pm), so I suppose the enthusiasm wasn't quite there to attend to another customer. Ordered Pad Thai, a bit gluey...but liked the taste. Will go back before I leave as they were a friendly bunch, and I want to try out some curry.

There are tables on at least 3 floors of this typical narrow building . Efficient service and tasty food. Good option in an area with a lot of average Viet/western mixed places.

We came here by mistake instead of the proper Coriander restaurant at 185. The food was tasteless, the staff got the order wrong and the restaurant is hotter than being on the busy street outside. Do not go here.
