Casual with a touch of class.

A small restaurant located close to the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. This unpretentious restaurant offers a great dining experience from 6pm daily. great place for an informal dinner.

For lunch tried caesar salad and ribeye steak. Steak was cooked well but had fat in the center. Had to add salt and pepper and pepper sauce as didnt have much taste. Including 2 bottles of soda cost was 790000dong or about US$36. May try dinner to see what all the fuss is about on TA. Lunch was average.

We dined as a couple at this great little place last night. We reserved a table in advance which is recommended as it looks popular with locals. Complimentary champagne on arrival, a very professional and welcoming French hostess made a great start to the evening. The keyboard player from Holland also adds to the European flavour. Very good wine list... More

We have been traveling Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and have always switched between local kitchens and more classic kitchens. Le bouchon de Saigon offers by far the best French kitchen across those three countries. Their menu is broad, but not too broad: get your rib eye, tartiflette and crime bruleèe here. Even the bearnaise makes you think of Paris. The... More

Arrived at 6pm first impression was we had walked into a Vietnamese Disco, could hear the music outside. Fortunately the Shift Supervisor ( I presume, she was the only one in a yellow shirt) turned the music down to an acceptable background level. The staff were pleasant and we quickly ordered. I decided to engage the waitresses on two occasions... More

Went here and had a good dinner. It was quaint, romantic, and good food. We enjoyed the free glass of bubbly before ordering. We loved the warm bread. We had a good meal and the piano player, Marc, was excellent. We recommend this restaurant to everyone for an enjoyable dinner.

We had foie gras (patae), escargot and ribeye steak.. All of which were decent but not out of this world. Staff was friendly, setting was cosy but it's not really the French experience

We dined here a few days ago and had a nice experience. The service, ambience, and menu are OK. The portions are rather large by Vietnamese standards and tasty. The quality of the main course food was marginal, but the appetizers were great. We did not try the wine, too expensive,
