A friendly wonderful place with good food and good fellowship!

We love Quito, Ecuador but after about 3 weeks of eating surprisingly bland Ecuadorian food we were led to this wonderful little place - owned by a Scotsman (Stewart MacDonald)! The food is good, and nice and spicy. The place is well decorated, the ambiance intimate, and Mr. MacDonald is a... read more

We went with a group of 12 people to have dinner and some drinks late March, the place had a nice atmosphere, a bar in the middle with lots of drinks and beer. It fell small and cozy inside. We sat down for dinner and order a promotion of Beer with assorted entrees for $12.00. It was nice to try... More

I was going out for lunch March when I decided to go and get something different. I've always passed Uncle Ho's but never found the time to do so. I entered and the place had a great atmosphere. The employee that served me was very kind and attentive. He took my order and regularly checked up on me to see... More

The food isn't Vietnamese. It's pretty awful. I'm sure if you went there to sit at their bar that may be fine

They supposed to serve Viatnamese food. But all we had was boring, not tasty at all. And this is hard to do when you look how simple but tasty Viatnamese kitchen is... Just go for drinks, but nothing else.

$8 for 3 kebabs with tiny shrimps over lots of noodles, two slices of cucumber and carrot. They also serve Ecuadorean and Thai cuisine. The typical restaurant in plaza Foch, regular food and overpriced.

If someone said to you ‘Did you hear the one about the Scotsman who owned an Oriental eatery pub in Equador ?’ You would say aah this sounds like a good joke … but it is far from a joke. Uncle Ho’s is a smashing pub that does top notch very reasonably priced Asian cuisine in Quito, Ecuador. It is... More

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
