“Felt like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

If you're seeking a little Western comfort, this is the perfect place. Scott and the team made me feel very welcome. I was a solo diner, and arrived late. I appreciated Scott stopping by my table and having a chat. Unlike some restaurants, Scott was on the ball with email communication. Strongly recommend.

Great guy (Scott), amazing food and well run operation. If in 7 this is the place to be and I will be a frequent visitor. Big fan of the american style things and loved the Thanksgiving. Come and by and give it a try not fancy or pretentious.

Hi Bob, thanks for coming over to "our house" for Thanksgiving. Now you will have to come back and try the regular menu ;-) We will keep doing the little things to make sure we earn your continued support, and keep you a frequent visitor. We are just trying to be consistently good, not fancy or pretentious, as you noted. Thanks from all of us for taking the time to write us a review here on TA, and hope to see you again soon at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“great food terrific service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I went to dinner on my first night in HCMC and had the 5 spice chicken breast, that was as good as you would get in a 5 star restaurant. Scott introduced himself and made me feel very welcome. I was staying at the adjoining hotel and it was tempting to eat there every night but when in a new city you have to try all the restaurants. Having said that i did have 4 meals there. They were all terrific tasty , well presented and fresh. Scott and Binh have done a terrific job in selecting and training the staff, they looked good , had plenty of smiles, were efficient and fast. Thank you Scott & Binh for helping to make my trip enjoyable , and anyone who reads this must pay them a visit or the loss is yours

Hi James, it was a pleasure to meet and talk with you over the course of your visit to HCMC. Thanks for taking the time to write us a nice review here on TA. I am glad you enjoyed the food, I promise people that it will be Tasty, that's my goal. Being American, I can use all the different food influences that exist there, and make food that may not be ultra traditional, but tastes good. Well, that's the goal anyway ;-) My wife Ms. Duc and I have worked hard to work with the staff, and make people feel welcome here, and it sounds like we all have succeeded in making you comfortable. Please stop back if you are in HCMC again sometime. Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“Scott and Binh's is Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is a great place food is very good. Service is to a high standard. I was surprised at how quick the food came out. Lots of choices I went with the Jamaican Jerk pork which was delicious. My wife had a mains salad which was really big. Wine was excellent. Real Irish coffee. Scott is an active part of your dining experience checking to see if everything is right, helpful in recommendations and a great host. I will be back the burgers look to be out standing as the table next to us had burgers. The restaurant is comfortable and finished nicely. I had the chocolate chip cookie bar with ice cream it was also delicious. I look forward to revisiting to try more of the menu and Scott's hospitality. I wish I lived in District 7.

Hi Paul, it was nice to meet you and T the other night, thanks for stopping by, and taking the time to write us a review here on TA. Not going to lie on the speediness of the food, you came in a little later, and ordered some quick dishes, sometimes when we are busy it takes a little longer ;-) I am glad you did enjoy everything that you tried. It seems we succeeded in making you feel welcome, which is our goal. Do stop back by to try the burgers, we won't disappoint you, I promise. Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“Friendly and good quality and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Second visit with my young son. Scott is a welcoming host and the service is prompt and friendly. Although we went for quite basic things on the menu ,the food is high quality and filling. No room for dessert after the Swiss Melt [highly recommended] but the Snickers Tart last time was a joy.
If you are looking for good quality food in a realxing atmosphere then it is the place for you. My young son loves it and we will be back to experience more from the menu. It certainly is gaining a good reputation in town and Scott is adapting his menu all the time.

Hi Jim, thanks for bringing your son by a couple of times. I have told people that if we can make the children happy, then we will probably see the whole family again at some point ;-) Thanks also for taking the time to write us a nice review here on TA. We really try to be kid-friendly, and encourage family dining. It's nice to have a space inside with non-smoking for the kids, and some comfy couches for them to bounce around on if they choose. Please stop by again and try out some more of the menu, I will be working hard on the Thanksgiving menu for the next week, then have some new food features the 1st week in December. Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott
