As this restaurant was just 'round the corner' from our hotel, and since it was recommended by the hotel, we thought that it must be worth a try! As usual, my husband was up to his norm, ordering for a battalion when there were just the two of us! We had Goi Cuon: Fresh spring rolls - it was fresh... More

I ate here the last Sunday with my friends. The food was nice. They re made in a very authentic vietnamese style. Feel like the food i ate at home but nicer decoration. I tried the clam broth, braised ribs with coconut, stir fried noodle. Well presented! A point plus to the chef who put the ingredients together and well... More

We loved this so much we went back the following night. Great menu of authentic dishes superbly cooked. Friendly staff in a lovely setting. The rooms on several floors look out to the street through a screen of plants giving you a fun location but safely protected from passing traffic. Loved their food and ethos.

Ordered some food that we are not able to find in Singapore such as the pumpkin flower vegetables, prawn and jasmine flower soup. They were delicious. Another must try is the garlic rice, the flavours that goes into the mouth is just so nice. We also ordered the fried egg with minced pork and dill, and spring roll platter. Do... More

The place has a lovely garden and a nice air conditioned area as well that feels big and open, but despite Quan Bui having a huge mention to choose from with a few surprises here and there, I really cant say that any dish stood at as stellar. Instead, we got a mix of consistently good dishes that lacked any... More

We got into Saigon fairly late and need something to eat so went to Quan Bui on the recommendation of our hotel. The area in which the restaurant is located is fairly seedy and if it were not for the intervention of a security guard we would have gone in to a brothel rather than the restaurant. The restaurant itself... More

QUAN BUI IN HO CHI MINH CITY Once dearly called Diamond of the Far-east with the luxury level overriding that of Hongkong or Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Modern office skyscrapers, amidst Oriental style pagodas and food stalls along the street, create a dynamic urban area in very special sense. Dining in Saigon is quite easy and it is not a place where you will easily go hungry, regardless of your budget. Some of Vietnamese restaurants which cater to the business community are quite Westernized. If you insist on a crisp, white table cloth, we don't have it. But for those who want to enjoy real Vietnamese & Home made food and contemporary Saigon living, forget about all the tourist restaurants with their white linens and bloated prices, and instead dine where the Vietnamese do. Surely, you'll have a best experience once you try at Quan Bui. Quan Bui - Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine/ 17A Ngo Van Nam, D1 Quan Bui - Vietnamese Bistro/ First floor 39 Ly Tu Trong, D1 Enjoy your memorable stay in Viet Nam. QUAN BUI - AUTHENTIC VIETNAMESE CUISINE Nowadays many people can afford to eat good food in fine restaurants but they still have a subconscious desire to eat dishes which remind them of simple rural life and family warmth. The problem now is that most people with average incomes are quite busy and have very little time to make these country dishes at home. By listening to the needs of our customers, we at Quan Bui restaurant have gradually expanded our business, explored and developed our menu to offer traditional dishes in a home cooking style which fully captures the tastes of Vietnamese cuisine. To do this we use only natural ingredients for preparing the meals and never use artificial flavour enhancers (eg MSG). Delightful and fulfilling experiences for our customers are our paramount concerns. Therefore our service and cleanliness are basic, never-to-be compromised principles for us. We use real chicken stock in our soups and hot pots and we ensure the freshest ingredients by selecting suppliers carefully (getting to the markets early every morning). A speciality is our home-made tofu - which is deliciously and expertly prepared by our chefs in the open kitchen. Quan Bui Restaurant was ranked 17th out of more than 800 restaurants in Saigon on Tripadvisor (one of the most respected websites for tourists) so the restaurant's customers include many people from around the world (check us out and add your own comments, please!). Among the foreigners who frequent the restaurant are Japanese customers - who are known for their high standards and fondness for fine differences of flavour. Like all patrons, they adore the ambience and stylishness of our culinary space. Come and experience the real Vietnam! You will love it!
