Been livin' in this city for more than two years and this is the best Vietnamese restaurant to me. The restaurant is run by a very young but professional staffs who always remember their customers. They did say thank you for every single time we...come back respectfully. Food is good consistently through many time we visited. The flavor of soft-shell crab was phenomenal. The price was good for their food, service and central location.More

Authentic Vietnamese food located in a quirky building. We were seated on the top floor of this very tall thin restaurant (they have a lift). I went for the spicy squid, and for someone who likes spicy food, I was impressed. The food was reasonably...priced and very tasty. Would like to visit again the next time I'm in SaigonMore

My wife, daughter and I were in Ho Chio Minh City recently. We asked the concierge at our hotel for a restaurant recommendation. She recommended Den Long. It turned out to be one of the best restaurants we experienced in Vietnam. We ordered spring rolls,...caramelized pork, the pomelo shrimp salad, and pineapple fried rice with seafood. They were all delicious but the pomelo shrimp salad was probably the best dish we had on our trip. It was fabulous. The presentations were also outstanding. The pomelo shrimp salad came in a hollowed-out half pomelo and the pineapple fried rice came in a hollowed-out half pineapple. Very attractive. The service was outstanding. Our server was very helpful and attentive. The food, service and ambience made for a very memorable evening.More

Husband and I had dinner here for my birthday meal. I cannot rate this restaurant, and its staff, highly enough! The five dishes we had were all exceptional - green chilli prawns, a variety of Vietnamese egg rolls, crumbed chicken with papaya dressing, coconut chicken...fried rice and caramelised pork. Oi Choi Oi, amazing. Great sharing size dishes. AND the waiter sang me a little Happy Birthday song while surprising us with complimentary drinks. A memorable night, with lovely people. Just before leaving our waiter gave me a little hand note of suggested places of interest, local foods to try, great places for drinks and common phrases to use in our travels. Thank you Den Long! Oh, PS: prices were very reasonableMore

We researched this restaurant on Tripadvisor as we were looking to eat close to our hotel having arrived in Ho Chi Minh city that afternoon. Warm friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and a simple but pleasant dining area. The food was delicious and we ordered three...dishes to share which was more than enough. The flavour combinations were so good, all freshly cooked and served with a smile. The waiter as we paid our bill presented us with a hand written note suggesting ideas of places to visit and things to see in Ho Chi Minh plus suggested bars and coffee shops and a list of Vietnamese greetings such as hello, goodbye, please and thank you. Where else would you get a young waiter who would take the trouble to do this for you? If you are in Saigon, it’s well worth a visit!More

The food is super good. Size of the dish is not big, but it is very more than enough for sharing with friends. We took 10 dishes for 3 people - we could skip 2-3 dishes for sure, as we are full.

It was late lunch time on 7Mar2020. Our first impression was that the staff could speak perfect and clear english, their service and friendliness made us impressed. The meal came fairly quick, around 10 mins after order. Food was amazing (pls refer to the photo...to see what we had), staff checked on us about the food quality during meal which was a nice touch as well. Then upon settling my bill at the cashier (they offered to present it on the table but i chose to come to counter instead), one of the gentleman showed me a piece of paper. It was handwritten, and to my surprise it contains recommended places to visit and to eat around ho chi minh city !!! On the other side there were some simple Vietnamese words translated into english so we can try "be more local" :) This extra service is beyond what i expect to get in a small intimate casual restaurant. I was really touched and will definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends. This small gesture really made a difference!! Keep it up !!More

By taxi apparently it is 800 meters away and should take around 3 minutes. I would not walk. However taxis are very inexpensive.
