Very bland tasting meal

The restaurant had been favorably reviewed by Lonely Planet and was literally across the street from Duc Vuong hotel. I was looking forward to a thali, which I saw on the menu. Unfortunately, the southern thali which is spicy was only available for lunch. I was told I had to have the northern... read more

One of the best restaurants on Bui Vien street as far as value and service go. Unpretentious, warm and friendly - excellent value and very good food! A very enjoyable experience!

If I were rating it on the Saigon Indian food scale, I'd rate it five stars. On the world Indian food scale (US, UK, Malaysia, Thailand) it rates a solid three stars. So I'm averaging those out to give a four-star rating. Other Pham Ngu Lao Indian restaurants set the bar pretty low. They're just plain bad. Mumtaz has good... More

Food ok, Naan ok, Mango Lassi ok. In general just ok. No place for me to come back again. Big minus for a dirty tablecloth and American pop music in a background.

Went with 3 young kids and had a great meal. It's an unassuming place but the food tasted fresh and well seasoned. One dish was lamb curry and it was so tender. The staff was incredibly responsive: leaving us in peace but very quick when we wanted some thing.

I love indian food and this place surelly offers the real deal! Spices from Goa and indian chefs. The only bad thing was that the juice was way to sweet and that the place was way to hot. The fans död not help. But so worth it anyway for the awesome food.

I went back to this restaurant after my stay in Vietnam 3 years ago. I was happy to find out that stay still do high quality Indian food. The mutton rogan josh is great as well as the samosas. They offer a lot of different dishes and all I had were nice. I had difficulties finding better Indian food when... More
