The food was absolutely amazing, we had all kinds of dishes from seafood to beef. The menu could be equipped with more pictures, and more variety of desserts, however. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Saigon!

Excellent restaurant : personnel was very nice, the restaurant is beautiful, and, the most important, the food is incredible (pork and shrimps spring rolls, squids with chili and lemongrass...)! The restaurant is far from the center but don't hesitate to go there

My partner and I visited Cuc Gach Quan based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was so awesome! After which we visited this place for the next two evenings (essentially had this for three consecutive days). For the mains, we tried the deep fried tofu with lemongrass & chilli, chicken wings fried with fish sauce, squid fried with tamarind sauce (I loved... More

What else can we say, this place is always our favourite hide-out. We always visit Cuc Gach Quan when we are in HCMC. We love the vintage setting of the restaurant and the dishes never fails to surprise us. The all time favourite Passion Fruit Sea Bass, Chicken Salad with Rau Ram, Zucchini Flower, Soft Shell crab. It is always... More

We had read some of the reviews (excellent and terrible), and we concluded as a family that this is definitely excellent. The menu is huge and after trying to figure out how and what to order, the waiter helped us and we had very nice starters, followed by mains and then more mains (as it was sooo delicious !). Including... More

My friend took me to Cuc Gach Quan during my first visit to Saigon last year. That's before I read about all the hype surrounding this place (and not even realizing it's the same one I visited). On my previous visit, I went after reading about it on Tripadvisor. I actually went to the original location which has different feel/menu.... More

Dont understand the high rating. Food was average, nothing special. Spring rolls were nice and exceed expectations. The chicken with vegetables (in fact only 1 type of vegetable) was allright, but flavorless. Service was good. Would not go back.

What an impressive setting. Tucked away from the chaos that is Saigon, this was a lovely treat to escape the noise. We came for lunch and had some excellent food. We got some sort if fish in a clay pot that was mouth watering. The ONLY reason this didn't receive a full 5 point rating is that I found a... More

Great food is easily available in Saigon, good ambience isn't. Cuc Gach Quan is hidden away in a quiet street and is housed in a beautiful, old mansion with lovely pools and lots of greenery. The food is great, but as I said, good Vietnamese food is everywhere. It's always a plus point when the waiters can speak a bit... More
