Consistently Good

I started coming to TIB over 20 years ago, and I think it's way past the due date for my review! I have to say that the food quality was better in the past. I suppose it is quite usual for the standard of restaurants to deteriorate somewhat over a long period of time, as the founding chefs that... read more

This was a beautiful place and we had high hopes but as I was eating the chicken with lemongrass and notice a red "sauce" running on my plate. I was shocked to find that the chicken was actually bloody inside. I called it to the attention of the waiter who called the manager(I think) who simply smiled and nodded. I... More

The service was inattentive, dirty dishes piled up, and I had to get up and ask for more tea, and the check. Communication was difficult. I understand I'm in Vietnam and they speak Vietnamese, but all the other restaurants we went to the servers were proficient in english and the menus explained well enough for me to know what I...

Arriving late after an international flight, we got taken here by a local. Sitting outside on a warm evening was great. Service was a little bit clunky but good. Food was vegetarian but very well made. Try the hotpot in particular.

Relatively upscale, though pretty hidden - the entrance is from a tiny alley coming out of busy Hai Ba Trung, and it's easy to miss the sign. The food is very good, but be prepared to wait for it - they cook to order, which can take time. Don't miss the clay pot dishes. If you're not crazy about very... More

Recommended by someone for it's typical Hue cuisine. Food was average at best (nothing like in Hue) and the service was terrible. Vastly overpriced and definitely not worth a visit.

Good VN foods. Very charming environment..."Hue" charms. Quiet get-away for couples. It is tucked away in an alley, off a very busy and noisy street. Parking for motorbikes only. Hard to find a parking place for car. It is 15 minutes walk from Hyatt....passing a few ice cream stores on the way.

I had a really nice meal, and very nice experience overall at this restaurant. It was super-casual, but everything I ate was delicious. I’d return.

Charming house unfortunately tucked into a passage serving as motorbikes parking...but the food is excellent and the service very good. Definitely one of the best in Ho Chi Minh City! The house used to be the home of a famous composer Trinh Cong Son. At his death, the family converted it into a restaurant for friends to gather

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 definitely worth a... More
