We were introduced this restaurant by the manager of our hotel. We booked once landed and had a really lovely evening at the SH. In general, that's absolutely amazing to be here. Its all open air and the tables at the front have a glass barrier so you can sit and watch the world around you. HCMC was very nice... More

We happened to spend Xmas in Saigon and found out about this restaurant on the flight there. We booked once landed and had a really lovely evening at the SH. It's all open, on a terrace atop a building facing the Rex Hotel and overlooking the plaza. You get there thanks to a lovely old fashioned lift, which bode well... More

Situated on the rooftop of the building at the corner of Nguyen Hue and Le Loi, SH garden has a prime location. The cute antique lift that takes you up to the restaurant adds to the experience. The food is traditional Vietnamese, the dishes are quite pricey (compared to the old location) but are meant to be eaten in a... More

Over 200 dishes are served here. The tofu is homemade and absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and even escort you to the top floor in a charming old elevator. I love old buildings in Saigon that are charming inside and this is one of them, right smack in the middle of the city with beautiful views. Some of the... More

I was downtown HCM and saw SH Garden. My primary purpose was to take photos from their high vantage that looks over the center round point and opera house. I also good a nice lime/ice drink. Nice decor. Very interesting old elevator that takes you up/down from the street. Food is good not great and pricey. But the view is... More

They say their cuisine is home cooking but since I’m not too sure what Vietnamese home dishes are, I would just have to take their word for it. Rooftop location with views of Ho Chi Minh Square, no airconditioning. Charming antique wooden elevator with iron grills, a throwback to its French past, takes you up to the floor beneath the...

I was recommended SH Garden by a friend, and was keen to try it but wasn't sure exactly where it was. I stumbled onto it by pure accident when I was walking around, and I'm SO glad I did! The menu is enormous - a little overwhelming at first - but unlike many other places, the waiters don't hover over... More

Not sure what to mention or rate first. My Catfish and Pineapple in a clay pot exceeded expectations. This was my second visit to the SH Garden, my first was because of the location. It is diagonal across the street from the Rex Hotel and also on a roof. One takes a two person 1920s elevator up several floors to... More
