The Friday oyster special at 5 Oysters is a good reason to visit Bui Vien Street. It is located at the quiet end of the area - walk into the third block, get some oysters and a beer and then walk back towards your starting...point and you will have seen everything. It is like the turn between the 8th and 9th at the golf course ! Walk - snack and drink - walk. A perfect plan !More

Had to visit Bui Vien Street which is full of noise and atmosphere at night. Found the Five Oysters which had been recommended and so glad we did. Four of us chose a number of veg dishes to share and they were all very good...- my favourite was the green mango salad. We had good banter with the waiter who had little English but was fun. Certainly recommend if you are in the area coupled with honing the art of crossing the roads!More

Yesterday ordered a lobster here and a glass of juice. So the pineapple juice was mostly ice. One lobster is 0.5 kg. The meat was dry, difficult to eat and with garlic taste. Who wants to taste garlic when orders seafood?! Disgusting for me! The...check was for 450 th. I think if u set up such price u should first, learn to cook it and second,use fresh ingredients. Interior and atmosphere also a big failure!More

We visited Five Oysters three times over our trip. The food is really affordable (50K for Vietnamese dishes) and drinks cheap too! It’s always busy during both lunch time and dinner. Would recommend sitting upstairs! The staff don’t speak great English but it never seemed...to be a problem. The only negative experience we had was on Christmas Day when they were extremely slow with one of the drinks and had to be asked about it multiple times. Other than that, a great restaurant for backpacker wanting a sit down meal.More

Came across this place on Bien Vien whilst looking for another place to eat after our first choice had closed for the evening. It was a good choice, with a good menu and atmosphere. Our initial order of mushroom Pho had sold out which was...a little disappointing, but the veggie noodles we had instead were a tasty substitute.More
