“Can't Go Wrong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We go here almost every night... it's a favourite amongst expats and backpackers for its cheap, cheerful, and yummy food! You won't get prices like there's for food like there's anywhere else in HCMC :-)

“My favourite restaurant in all of HCMC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Cheap and cheerful is the name of the game here - there's few other places in HCMC where you can get massive portions of delicious food for this cheap. I've been here many times and have yet to be disappointed. If they're full just hop over to Chao Sai Gon on the opposite side of the street [222] - they're both actually the same restaurant, as evidenced by the waiters precariously crossing busy Bui Vien with food! Get a table by the road for the best experience.
