If you want really good Thai food in an unpretentious setting, just go to this restaurant. Every time my girlfriend and I are craving Tom Yum soup or another Thai favourite, we head straight for Coriander as we know we won't be let down. Prices have gone up a bit in the last year, so it might not be as... More

Absolutely fantastic food, walked in as a convenient stop. Was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Would definitely highly recommend, the prices were reasonable. The decor etc was dated, but do not let that put you off.

Despite constantly seeing thai restaurants in top ratings in various parts of the world , I have yet to find one that comes anywhere near what you actually get in Thailand I admit to being a thai food snob so hard to please and normally steer clear but if business / friends suggest I go ahead Despite being so close...

Three sisters run this Thai restaurant and they do a really great job of it. The restaurant is tucked away on a busy backpacking strip of restaurants and bars in HCMC. There are 3 levels of seating and private rooms if you have a group wanting to eat. We ate ourselves silly on beautiful fresh seafood and we demolished Tom... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our Thai curries at Coriander, very tasty and exceptional value for money. Service was good and they even served wine by the glass at a very reasonable price. (Also decor seems to have improved since the review in our 2014 Lonely Planet).

The restaurant has a good location, positioned at the top of Bui Vien. We thought the food here was average at best. Our main meals were oily, lacked punch and flavour. The service was adequate if a little mechanical, the staff failed to smile or make us feel particularly welcome during our visit. Worth considering only if you are really... More

3 sisters run a good small restaurant in a friendly, cheerful atmosphere. We ate there on 3 occasions over 2 weeks, once with our 11 family members aged 70 to 5 years.. Lots to satisfy everyone. It's near the corner of Bui Vien St and easy to miss, but don't! The meals are generous and well priced.

The worst Thai food I have ever eaten! Doesn't even resemble Thai food and I was sick the two times I ate there.
