Bahdja is a cozy little place underneath Au Lac Hotel, just behind the Bitexco building. The food is Algerian: couscous, tajines, etc. Absolutely everything on the menu is good! The chekchouka (Algerian ratatoullie), tomato paprika salad (served in a parmesan basket), couscous merguez, and seafood tajine are particular favorites...but I order something different every time I go, there's just so...

This restaurant is hands down the best one my wife and I discovered in six weeks in Vietnam. The owner, Ahmed, was on hand to explain his dishes to us, a very classy and friendly man. We had an appetizer plate with 4 different types of Algerian sauces, home baked bread and olives in a tangy marinade. The 4 sauces... More

What more can I say. We've travelled the length and breath of Vietnam and never experienced a meal and hospitality as good as this. Russia meets Algeria in An amazing cultural blend that delivers an incredible taste sensation. If only this Restuarant existed in Australia. Oh, and do yourself a favour and try the Macroccan wine and Russian Vodka. Superbly... More

Visited with my mother for something new, and we've got genuinely amazed by Moroccan food they have. Location convenient (to Au Lac hotel and you're fine), although metro construction might be a bother if you're around Dong Khoi.

We loved the balance of the taste. So fantastic with both crisp and soft, spicy and mild at the same time, in an unique combination. We also received help in our choice of dishes that was perfect for us. This was one of the best meals in HCMC and that is a great achievement because you can have fantastic meals... More
