A bit of a trek. 3km out from centre of District 1. Went here after reading the largely positive reviews on this site. Classy and well furnished building off the main street. Unbelievable Viatnamese food. Chicken with chilli and lemongrass for me. Prawns in a coconut and ??something which was literally out of this world for my girlfriend. Can't remember... More

Cục Gạch Quán is a charming restaurant where you get both excellent quality food and attentive service. The dining experience here will be as good as it gets. You'll get authentic, home-style, well prepared and unpretentious Vietnamese cuisine. This is clearly one of my best dining experience yet. It is no wonder that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt chose to... More

I must say the food was tasty. (It should be at that price) We had dinner there 2 times and got stomachache both times. It must be something with the hygiene. Dishes and bowls were cracked and chipped.

Went here on the invitation of an expat living in Vietnam. They take all of their guests here, so should tell you something right there. Everything we ate was delicious. I'm not over exaggerating. Everything! Clam soup with starfish fruit. Soft shell crabs. The blended lime juice that we drank through sugar cane straws even was delish! Don't miss this... More

This restaurant is reasonable, cute/trendy ambience, reasonable ($50 USD for 6 ppl), definitely way better than Quan An Ngon.

In fact, there are 3 restaurants of the chain. Each has its own style of decoration and serving and different pricelist. This one is the most pricey but it provides you a wide range of dishes and you can choose whatever you want (The two rest will be like you arrive home, you don't know what you will be served....

Superb Vietnamese cuisine made with quality ingredients. Extensive wine list. Very comfortable funky retro interior. Not a cheap eat, but very affordable, especially compared with restaurant prices in Australia, UK and US. Just go.

We were recommended this place by a friend who'd stumbled across it. We've found the food in Vietnam better than the other several Asian countries we've visited - Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea. It's the freshest and the most flavoursome! The restaurant is a real surprise. You walk in to friendly staff and lots of different little areas that... More

Food is ok, but what really stands out is the setting of an old house back in the 70's. You really feel like you are walking straight into an movie setting of a house back in Saigon in the 70's. Very dimensional with many rooms. Supposedly they make very traditional food of that era. Food was ok, service happened to... More
