Yummy little hidden gem.

We came in here for lunch one day and enjoyed it. The pineapple fried rice was among the best we had in Vietnam. The service was very good and we especially liked the unique way that they made many of their condiments. The restaurant is down and alley and not well marked from the street. It is... read more

Touristy, overpriced dishes, you can have Huế dishes at half price at most of other places. Dishes are average, do not come here on your own.

Hue food maybe available on every corner of the streets (well not quite, but plenty) of Saigon but to find a restaurant that specialised in Hue cuisine and is not. This restaurant been here perhaps around 20 years has hosted a number of world leaders to its charming off the main road restaurant. So avoid to visit on those dates... More

If you want to dine in a classic Vietnamese restaurant, Tib restaurant is a very good choice. The food is excellent, though a bit pricey. We have booked the main dining room a few times and enjoyed the experience. However, the restaurant would do well to avoid large groups arriving later passing through your section of the restaurant.

After being given such high praise by a fellow passenger (ethnic Vietnamese now residing in Melbourne, Australia), it was disappointing to say the least to be offered such poor quality food. Who would have thought that the simple Spring Roll could be made to taste musty and mouldy (well this restaurant certainly found a way). The Micro Herbs and Greens... More

Tucked down and alley the Tib was the result of a Trip Advisor search. We were delighted with the atmosphere – old fashioned in an increasingly brash city. The staff give the impression they revere the place – and with justification. The seating was quickly rearranged for five – never the easiest number in a restaurant. Our son tried (and... More

Set down an alley in an elegant space full of wooden, antique carvings, the restaurant feels high-end. Overly attentive staff hover; a massive menu confuses, but all our food was delicious. Good wine list.

The food is normal, but the price is relativly high. It is my worst meal in Ho Chi Minh city. The only thing I think good is the decoration.

We come here every single year with new friends from different parts of the world, the best restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city for authentic Vietnamese meal. Great atmosphere, excellent food and service with many old staffs for years. We always love Trinh Cong Son songs and this place.
