El Gaucho is the best steak restaurant in Saigon. It is not the food that is amazing, the whole atmosphere is really nice, service is really good. It's the perfect choice when you're tired of all the Vietnamese food. It's a bit noisy but I think because it's always busy. We went there the first time to celebrate a friend's... More

I had the USDA ribeye, hubby tried the lamb and a colleague had the certified angus ribeye ... All very good! Sides of spinach, garlic mashed potatoes and arugula salad were perfect. The garlic served with the bread can be improved as well as mosquitoes have to be dealt with but would not deter going back. After all, it's all... More

Overall food quality was excellent and rating of very good was due to the amount we spent. No complaints on quality just quite expensive... More

I have dined several times at El Gaucho. It is not cheap, but I find the very best quality in D1 when it comes to eating out is similar to North America pricing. This is the best Steak House I have found in HCMC. Service is excellent and it can be very nice sitting outside, but only limited tables outdoors.... More

Let's keep this simple. We were in HCM city for three nights and then a further two and we chose to eat here twice. Well, three times if you count the time we arrived without a booking and were turned away... The food is Argentinian and mainly meat. The quality of the food and service is outstanding. The owner and... More

Seriously questioning the legitimacy of many reviews in this place. Really??? No matter what you might think of the food (honestly, it's fairly ok), the place is overpriced by 2-3x. For me, this place was Sizzler on steroids... and the pricy wine list just added insult to injury. At the end, the owners son offered free shots of some homemade... More
