“Pleasant evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Took my sister there with her boyfriend. They'd been travelling and living off street food so this was a welcomed change. Had a bit of trouble finding the place as the taxi didn't really know where he was going but when we finally arrived (it's in District 7 so a taxi ride out of the city) we were greeted by Scott who throughout our time there would pop over and make conversation. He actually gave my sister some fantastic tips for their travelling - Thanks Scott!. As for the food, we went for the burgers which can't be faulted. As a fan of big portions, this really hit the spot. We also had some starters and tried the special as an extra main divided into 3. By dessert none of us could clear the plate. All in all, a pleasant evening with good food and conversation.

“Fantastic American cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Felt like having a break from Vietnamese food for an evening and saw Scott and Binh's was number two on trip advisor. Their rating is deserved Scott is such an amazing host and extremely friendly. The food is just as great as his personality, I have not been to America but if their burgers are anything like what you can get here I'd be in food heaven. Thanks so much Scott your restaurant is just as lovely as you! If we had more time in Saigon I'd be back again :)

Hi Monique, it was nice to meet you and N last night. thanks for taking the time to write us a review here on TA. I am one of the lucky people who loves what he does.....and I am glad it comes across. I have a great staff that actually makes most of the magic happen, I am there to make sure it all goes as according to plan as possible. What's interesting about the burgers is that except for the cheese, and BBQ sauce or grain mustard, they are "Vietnamese" food. I have en excellent local supplier, Nhat Nam Fine Foods, for the beef and bacon, Geoff from Blackcat makes my rolls, I make my own pickles, and all the produce is local. I would be proud to serve them anywhere in the world, as they are tasty burgers! Have fin in SG, and stop back by anytime you make it over here. Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“A treat slightly off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went with the family and although a bit away from the beaten track for tourists it is worth a visit, for the relaxed homely atmosphere and great food.

Hi M, it was nice to meet you and your family last week. It always makes me happy when I hear the kids use the word "delicious". That means they are happy, and that usually makes the parents happy as well. We do try to make it a homey atmosphere here, just like a big dinner party with friends. It was very nice of your wife and daughter A to take the time to play with our daughter Z. I am also glad you all enjoyed the meal, even the bread pudding :) I hope you enjoyed your trip, and please stop back if you are in HCMC again anytime soon. Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“Worth the trip just for the bacon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went out to Scott and Binh's after a recommendation from a fellow traveler. The restaurant is in the stylish and quiet District 7 so is a short taxi ride from the city centre. Great location, and atmosphere with Scott and Binh paying a lot of personal attention to their customers. Other reviewers have praised the food and I'll go with them too. The highlight for me though was their bacon - awsome! Just go and taste it, you'll see what I mean.

Hi Paul, it was nice to meet you the other night. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review here on TA. As was once said by Jules in Pulp Fiction.......Bacon is goooooood! It's an interesting cultural difference concerning the cooking of bacon in SE Asia.....as in, it's usually not very cooked! We have a great local supplier, and we bake ours in the oven so it has some crunch. And contrary to some of my friends teasing, we don't put bacon in everything ;-) My wife Duc(Binh is my business partner) and I take great pride in taking care of our guests, as do the staff. We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. Next time you are in town, try the bacon vodka! Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott

“I would give them 6 circles if I could!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I was in District 7 to go to FV Hospital and needed a restaurant near by as this is a quiet section of HCMC and nothing much near my hotel. I found Scott and Binh's online, went over to check it out and ended up eating there 4 times including twice on Saturday for brunch and dinner. Every dish was delicious - some great American style home cooking. Their portions are large so I never got to try anything from the wonderful dessert menu. Scott is a great host and the staff are good too. Even if you're staying in city center, it's worth a ride to Phu My Hung to have a great meal in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Thanks for keeping me well fed, Scott! See you next month!

Hey Walter, was great to hang out and talk over the few days you were here. Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review for us here on TA. I am glad you "got" what we are trying to provide: tasty comfort food, good service, in a relaxing setting. Next trip we can make you a smaller portion so you can try a dessert. See you next year ;-) Thanks again from all of us at Scott and Binh's. Peace and Happy Eating, Scott
