District Federal


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

District Federal is an authentic Mexican restaurant, bringing flavors & tastes from DF (Mexico City). At DF, we make our own masa from yellow corn, for our tortillas, tacos, tostadas and chips. We make homemade fresh cheese (Queso Fresco), Mexican Crema and all other sauces, salsas and marinates. Our chef, Victor, hails from Mexico City and he brings years of Mexican culinary experience with him to Vietnam. Our menu, whilst offering authentic Mexican cuisine, also caters for the less authentic "Tex Mex" styles of dishes, in order for us to satisfy diverse tastes and experiences. Along with traditional, tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and enchiladas, we have an extensive chargrill section on our

Lovely margaritas, great food and ambience. Would definitely recommend. Service great even though busy as was one of a few restaurants open over Tet (Vietnamese New Year).

Great spot. We've been twice this visit to Saigon and it has been a favourite on previous visits. Mexican food is as good as can be found in any global city. Restaurant has great vibe and music. Good service. Excellent food.

Always loved the vibe of the place but the food missed the mark. The new improved more extensive menu is definitely welcome. Wish they had more wine options by the glass. Apart from the regular Mexican fare the mushroom with jalapeño cream was excellent and...More

Best Mexican food I’ve had. Flavours and attention to detail incredible. Great relaxed atmoshere backed up by good music and staff. You have to visit this place and try the passionfruit margarita.
