Excellent French cuisine

Excellent service, good food. The French eat here too, that says a lot but the quality of the food. Looks a bit pricey at first but I try taste the food, I wouldn't mind paying twice the amount. Only 5 minutes walk from Post Office, very convenient.

every time i come to HCM city, i must visit this restaurant for sure. The music, the bread, the food.....all Five-star standard. For sure no disappointment. Their beef cheek is a must try dish. They are a bit pricy as compared with the local viet standard but it's still way cheaper than anywhere else in the world where u can... More

I ate here with my parents for their 31 year wedding anniversary. We all loved the food and would happily return again. The prices for food are high for Vietnam but fairly reasonable compared to French food in the US. Try the burrata and ratatouille appetizer. Good wine, too.

La cuisine used to be our family's favourite when we lived in Saigon; last year we moved, but on our first trip back to Vietnam we immediately made a reservation and enjoyed the incredible food of this French restaurant in Saigon. Without a doubt, the best French in the city as far as I am concerned. Food is always prepared... More

La Cuisine was recommended by the Concierge of my hotel, as a no frills, good French restaurant -- and I must say it was this and more. I had fish as a main and dessert. The food was excellent, both in taste and portion, the Chardonnay was crisp and cold, and the service impeccable. I read a lot of reviews... More

La Cuisine has been around for several years, and I've always seen diners coming in and out, so when some visiting friends wanted French food, I decided to make a reservation. The staff is very welcoming and professional, and the restaurant is very warm, inviting and feels homey. Our group had the duck and tuna - which were all incredible.... More

Never in a million years would I have thought that such a place as this existed. Can't believe that I just had one of the best, if not the best meals ever. Overstating maybe but in Saigon. Lamb as light as popcorn, I don't know how else to describe it. Hope you try and enjoy as much as we did.

Behind a quiet district #1 facade hides an exciting French cuisine restaurant. The menu includes modern dishes and bistro dishes. Wine selection is great too. Go go go!

French cuisine is excellent! The desserts are to die for! The place is very clean with good table setting. Don't miss this restaurant when in Ho Chi Minh.

Expensive but a great refuge from the hustle and bustle of HCM. The goat cheese appetizer is devine. Service is excellent.
