I have been coming here for a few times. It is a simple restaurant, great minimalist decor but a good food selection. The food good for Saigon and there is a lot of variety. I do recommend!

Went there a few times for lunch recently. Good price and great food. The lentils with sausage were amazing, and the Zucchini, veggie fritters were some of the best I had recently. Service is good too.

Lubu offers you seats outside and inside. The menu is Mediterranean at large, but there is a strong accent on Greek specialties (and Italian desserts). The food is perfectly spiced, and nicely presented. The only thing that I missed, is the option of ordering baklava...More

Description
Located in the heart of Saigon's Thao Dien area Lubu offers a chance to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy inspired cuisine, fine wines & fantastic service. We use the best quality produce to create a healthy nutritious menu, drawing inspiration from the great cuisines of Europe & The Mediterranean Open Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast, lunch & dinner (8.30am-10pm), or, just a great coffee, a glass of wine a cocktail or an icy cold beer with some tasty tapas.....Lubu is the place to be.
