I visited Dragon Hot Pot on two occasions and both were good visits. They have a large photo menu in several languages and a big salad bar and soups to go with the excellent steaks and grills they do. Not cheap but still pretty reasonable. Clean, snappy, service but distinctly Asian minimalist rather than Western cosy vibe.

My friends and I visited Dragon Hotpot on Sunday, Sep 13th. We planned to have something to share in dinner, so we chose this restaurant. However, it turned to be terrible. We ordered hotpot for 2 people, but the waiter was not so good at English, he somehow misunderstood that we ordered 2x2=4. So we had to pay more than... More

it is located close to the saigon square. a purely japanese resto and they have set lunch boxes. During lunch it can be packed and service a bit slow. otherwise this is a nice place to enjoy japaneses food at reasonable prices and good service.

I have been enjoyed japanese food in this restaurant. The first impression was atmostphere that was so exciting with drum sound to make everyone knows Food comes out from kitchen. The second was quality of sashimi, it was so fresh. The third was good service, althought staff dont understand much our native langue but they can guess what I mean.... More

Dragon Hotpot has been a regular haunt of mine for a few years. While other Japanese restaurants may excel with sushi or sashimi, I think sukiyaki is where Dragon Hotpot leaves the others behind. I've been enough times to try most things on the menu, but it's the rich and silky broth of the sukiyaki that brings me back again... More

Had dinner here and it gave the appearance of a fast food outlet, very busy on a Saturday night but the staff were very friendly, efficient and the service was a reasonable time. Lots of choices with a big selection of Bento boxes, sushi was tasty but too much mayo for our tastes. I would recommend this restaurant for a... More

I go here from time to time when I want to have a different lunch than the usual ones. They have nice bento style lunch set for very good value. Quality is good, staff is attentive, eventhough it might get a little loud since staff shouts orders from top to bottom. But all in all I can really recommend this... More

This restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) serves Japanese and Chinese food. I ordered Kata Yakisoba which contained fried meat, seafood and vegetables in rich gravy over crispy noodles. It was not particular tasty. My wife had Assorted Tempura Seafood and Vegetables. It was just OK. Probably it was a bad idea to go to Japanese restaurant in Vietnam... More

we enjoyed the Ramen. this japanese soup is rich, spicy and delicious. there are many different Ramen versions. the service is attentive but I did not like hearing the staff talking and even arguing together almost in front of us. the place was full of japanese people and overall warm atmosphere. We recommend this place.
