We were recommended here by our hotel and to be honest it was the worst meal we have had in Vietnam. It was difficult to chose off the menu as 3 of the things we ordered had run out. Then our food all came at separate times - we had a plate of beef that I had to send back to reheat so we could eat it with rice... we were in general disappointed.

Some restaurant maps put this restaurant in the wrong place, way to the west of Ben Thanh Market. Check the address carefully. Also, as mentioned in other reviews its location is not at all clear from the street.

The place was packed when we arrived (Friday about 1930). New tables and chairs were being set up and we ended up against the coolers, near the entrance and the kitchen. Very much where the action is. Lots of loud shouting and rushing about, albeit mostly efficient.

The menu is a little difficult to work with. We ended up with two dishes for us to grill that were too similar in texture and accompaniments - eel and wild boar. Should have got the prawns. The seafood noodle dish was excellent. At over D500k for two including three beers, it is not particularly cheap. A great place for a big group.

The food here was just the best, we were recommended here by our tour guide and it was great. The food is very very fresh and the experience of cooking it yourself is just great but all staff are on hand to help you out. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend you visit this resturant but do book cause it is very very busy.

This restaurant is amazing! It is a humble fit out but what had me as soon as I walked in was the absolute hum of this place. Everything happens at full speed here, tables appear from nowhere to sit another group of guests, food comes out quickly from the kitchen, bbqs are cleaned in a flash.
The Matrie d is amazing, I instantly fell in love with her, she moves around like lighting and there is not one single thing she does not miss going on inside that restaurant. She even sat a bucket of iced beer next to me on a chair. I instantly wanted a job there!
The food is great to share with a group as you can order lots of different items to try,share and cook at your table.
This is not a place for a quiet romantic dinner but if you want an affordable, delicious and lively dinner while in Ho Chi Minh this is it.

Had difficulty finding at first as the frontage is being rebuilt but once in and up the stairs, past the Temple (another grand eatery), Quan Nuong is on the third floor and open to the stars. Their speciality is vietnamese barbecue so choose your meat and veg and it comes with a hotplate to your table inset with a gas burner. Tasty food, you cook it how you like it, very noisy, (3 viet birthday parties that night) busy but good service, cheap local draught beer. brilliant.
