Description: Situated at the heart of Saigon, Que Viet cuisine village seeks to please its patrons by offering traditional dishes from around the country, Vietnamese hot pots and the infamous Southern grilled dishes. The restaurant's design resembled Vietnamese countryside with its simple yet elegant architecture, surrounded by the outdoor seating area that's open yet leaves space for privacy. Parking is plenty and diners will always find Que Viet to be their very own peaceful retreat from the busy streets of Saigon

“Excellent food, weak service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

I've eaten at Que Viet every time I visit Sai Gon. I absolutely love the food--the quality is excellent. Everything I've tried from stir-fried beef to grilled pork to seafood is great. Try the Rau Muong Xau Toi!

The service is typical for Viet Nam, which is a disappointment for such a cool restaurant. The dining is covered, but mostly al fresco. The restaurant is set back in an alley which lends to is being quiet. The waitresses just don't go above and beyond--they do only as told, and slowly at that.

Regardless, I'll still go back and recommend others too. Just don't get in a hurry!

“Authentic place, full of locals...great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Loved eating here. The food was excellent but we over ordered as the servings were very generous. The menu is very extensive and we weren't too adventurous (considered the frog dishes but eventually decided against them). Walked (or should I say, waddled) away very content and also extremely pleased with the cost...barely $40 for a huge meal for 2 including 6 beers. Wonderful and attentive service...maybe a tad too attentive, but they really were making an effort. Highly recommend this place for good Vietnamese food.
