“Great local spot for group”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

This place is nothing fancy but has an extensive traditional vietnamese menu (no pho though: go across the street to Pho Hung).

Seafood hotpot with assorted mushrooms was delicious and a lot of food for 4.

Staff was super nice and attentive, but little english. Remember... you're in Vietnam.

Great place for a big group of friends to share some seriously wild and delicious dishes/cheap bottled beer.
So grow some chicken testicles and then order some.

“Good restaurant on a lively street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Din Ky is a great restaurant serving vietnamese and chinese food at very reasonable prices. Lot of locals are coming here. There is ample space on two floors and the service is fast and friendly. Nguyen Trai street is great for coffee bars and shopping.

“Going native in Saigon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

It is always a good sign when you see only locals eating in a restaurant. There is nothing dinky about Din Ky . It is three floors of eating machine packed to the rafters with noisy locals feasting on seafood and other delicacies, some not for the faint-hearted. We had oysters delicately baked with cheese and egg york and some grilled prawns. They were simply yummy! This is seafood heaven with almost all treasures of the sea on offer cooked in every way possible - grilled, poached, fried, steam, sauté, baked, hot pot etc It is a must-go eatery in the city and it's open 24 hrs!

“Great menu choices available”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

A great choice of Vietnamese food where the locals take their families to eat. Good quality and value for money. Can be very busy but if downstairs looks full there is always room upstairs which is air conditioned. Try the crocodile and peanut curry, its delicious.

“Good Vietnamese and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We loved this restaurant. The menu was so big and all we tried tasted great. Most of the food is Vietnamese, but our youngest could order her favorite dish: Spaghetti Bolognese... The children also loved to watch the fish, turtles and crabs in the aquariums. The service was really quick and nice.

This is a place where the locals go, but there were also some foreigners.
