Loved this place. The food was pretty good as well as the drinks. Walking distance to the Pullman Saigon Center Hotel. Love the open air atmosphere. Perfect place for watching the world pass by on a busy Saigon street.

Lost in Saigon is a funky cocktail bar and restaurant on the busy Bui Vien street. We have full Vietnamese and Western menu including burgers, pizza, steak, Mexican burritos and fajitas, plus we cater for vegetarians as well. Sit inside in the air conditioning or sit outside on our comfy chairs where it is perfect for people watching. There is always something happening on Bui Vien! Lost in Saigon is proud to only use the highest quality ingredients. Our steak comes from Australia, our salmon from Norway, and our vegetables are sourced fresh daily direct from the farmers market. Please also come try our shisha, we only use genuine tobacco imported from Middle East and our staff are experts in making the perfect flavor combinations. We only use the highest quality alcohol in our cocktails. For example we only use Captain Morgan in our Mojito's, and you can choose from Hendricks, Tanqueray, Bombay Sapphire or Gordon's for your Gin and Tonic. We are confident our food, shisha, and cocktails are the best in Bui Vien and we hope to help you find yourself Lost in Saigon soon!
