I was traveling in Quito with a friend and we visited Uncle Ho's on several occasions. Stuart (the owner) was always warm & welcoming and provided us with great tips & info for traveling around Ecuador. He also helped us out when we had no phone charger (lifesaver!) The Asian food was lovely & full of flavour and we enjoyed... More

A great little spot off the mayhem of Fosch Plazza with good Thai food. Pad Thai was tasty and the owner took time to have a decent chat with us as we waited for our night bus to depart later that night. We sipped a few beers & abused the wifi whilst the owner was more than accommodating to our... More

A year ago I was in Hanoi and this brought back some of my favourite flavours. The fried spring rolls, the crispy squid. There is Pho as well, I know I will be back to explore the menus next time in quito. Great company too, not so touristy or backpacker full more like a bunch of regulars and expats. Great... More

Listen, just don't order pad thai unless it's in the states or your home country, or it won't be what you want. Gringos constantly complain about this, yet keep ordering it *rant over* Uncle Ho's is the BEST Asian food we've had in South America, hands down. Like, they actually use Asian spices and flavors, thank god. I had the... More

Awesome Viet food found in South America, who'd have thought?! And the banter with Stu the owner is top notch also. Bravo!

Pad thai is one of my favorite dishes and I don´t think I´m hard to please but this was probably the worst pad thai of my life. They used vermicilli (really thin) noodles instead of the standard rice noodles. I didn´t taste any peanut in my sauce. The noodle was also overcooked and mushy. My gf had pho which was... More

Visited Uncle Ho's on a visit to Quito to see my lawyer re: visa and cedula applications. Great spot to have a beer and chat with people from all over. Tried the lemon grass beef vermicelli. Very tasty!

I've been to a few during our time here and this place stands head above all the other ones we've had so far. Lovely owner (thanks stu) and great food meant we left ecaudor with a good meal inside is. Ok, it's not cheap but Neither hugely pricey. I'm happy to pay a little extra for a meal that actually...

This is a fun place to connect with travelers from the world who speak English. Many people from the UK and US have made Quito their home. You can find them here.

In pleasant contrast to the Chinese restaurant we tried, this actually tasted right! We had two of the $8 combos - lemongrass beef with noodles and glazed pork with grapefruit salad. The latter was terrific - the grapefruit salad was wonderful- the lemongrass beef so-so. Then we split the fried bananas stuffed with nutella and doused with amaretto. It would... More
