I've eaten here many times and I have always had a very good experience. The menu items are basic but quite tasty and freshly prepared. And the price is fair considering the size and quality of the portions as well as the location of the...place. The staff is very friendly and they always have at least one person who knows some English to explain menu items. Good job staff. Your attentiveness and good attitude is noticed and appreciated!More

Walking distance from the center of Saigon, quick and clean service, must try for travellers wishing to enjoy Vietnamese cuisine; Don't worry about the price, it's fair and reasonable!

The best Bún bò Nam Bộ (Vietnamese rice noodle with lemongrass beef in Saigon. Its the gift to all of us, Vietnamese & beloved foreign friends. However, my most memoriable experience here was Ngoc - a passionate, smart and beautiful staff (a furture restaurant chains...owner, I'm sure). She is the GIFT for Bà Bà restaurant. Please appreciate her!More

Very good Bun bo Nam Bo ( southern style rice noodles) . Dish is all in One with meat, noodles some greens. Spring rolls as starters with sauce. Very clean and hygienic place. Very polite and pleasant staff and some of them speak English. Foreigners...are told how to eat the dish ! Very close to Bitexo tower and Walking street ( both Bui Vien and Nguyen Hue) Definitely worth visiting.More

We ended up visiting this place twice while we were in Ho Chi Minh. It was super cheap, filling and healthy. They stick to a couple of dishes (spring rolls, beef noodle and tofu with noodles) which they do really well and the service is...friendly and fast. Everything is freshly prepared and there are so many delicious flavours! They also had another eatery about 2 doors down (can’t remember the name!) which was the same but switched the beef noodle bowl for bbq pork skewer and pork meatballs. We ate there too the next day and it was also great!More

Amazing food! Got Combo 1 - spring rolls, a meal and a drink— great value. Tried both spring rolls, very tasty. Had the Bun Bo Nam Bo for my meal and it was really delicious. The staff there was what made my experience so great...though. They were helpful and gave recommendations on what to put on our food, were very on top of service and quick to help, and extremely kind. Best service we have had on our 3 month travels in Southeast Asia!!More
