Great place to have Tex Mex style grub when you want to let your hair down and wash down the tasty tacos with frozen Margheritas. On a busy street of Thao Dien District 2 Saigon, it's a nice change from eating Vietnamese after staying here...a long time. Highly recommend with friends and make it a fun night out, nothing fancy just good eats, drinks and music.More

WOW, delicious food! We ordered the combination of 4 dips, and my husband said they were the best Mexican dips he'd ever had! We then enjoyed tacos....so delicious. Great service and atmosphere. A comprehensive menu so we will be back to try more food! Highly...recommended.More

Terrific Mexican food, great ambiance, and wonderful staff. The ideal place to spend an evening with friends enjoying a delicious meal and , if your lucky, some musical entertainment.

I'm not a huge Mexican food guy being from the East Coast, it's readily available. But man, I'll put this up against any Mexican restaurant in all of HCMC. This is really authentic, and the food is delicious, Flavorful, vibrant, awesome! The head chef is...from Mexico, so, you can't get much more authentic than that. Place also has a great vibe. After a long day of walking in D2, pop on over for a cold beer, or even better, a fantastic margarita. Music on the weekends. This place is ACES! A+. To me, sitting down, meeting new friends, this place just feels like home. Like I said, food is slamming good!! I have visited already a bunch of times, and this will be in the rotation every time I'm in HCMC. Oh, I almost forgot. Try the Ceviche. The best I've had anywhere. I mean it! You will too! Get there, now!More

The Tacos were very good comparing to the other Mexican places in Saigon. The owner definitely put a lot of effort to create an authentic mexican place like this

Prompt service, good music and delicious food. District Federal did not disappoint. The Mexican bahn mi was simply delicious!!! Wish we could've sampled some house tortilla chips (not offered by the restaurant). Overall, did not disappoint. Would highly recommend a meal here.

I've been going to this place since it opened. The food is consistently great and the menu is constantly evolving as the owners are continually experimenting/innovating. Service is pretty good and loads better than the standard in Vietnam. I talked to one of the owners--very...hands-on, very passionate about searching for improvements. He talked about the process for making their tortillas, how many mL of water per 100 grams of masa, how they roast pork skin for chicharrones...I got lost in the details but clearly he is driven to find new delights for the menu. Examples: molcajete salsa, new vegan menu, etc. Occasionally they have live music, which is fun. On one occasion my food came out cold (they were extremely busy). I pointed it out, got an immediate apology from a manager, and they made it right very promptly. I read a few extremely negative reviews here before writing this. Interestingly they're all clustered around the same time. I'm sorry, they sound like poor attempts to slam this place made by competitors. Over the course of several years and many meals (and many more margaritas) I've always had a great experience here. To those who complain it's not "real" or "authentic" Mexican food...tranquilo, estas en Vietnam, tome una cerveza y no te preocupes. It's flavorful and plenty spicy and reasonably priced, and the menu is a lot more interesting than any other Mexican place I've been--including in Mexico. (oh...they have a wicked mescal too...)More

Its as close to Mexico as it can get. Love the open kitchen and the fire grill on display. Dishes are authentic and full of flavor. Margarita cocktail is super. The decorations are splendid. All dishes at top. Not impressed by the ceviche. But a...super restaurant.More
