“Great collection of local delicacies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Not much to add to the 300 reviews out there. The snail was huge but very tough. Bun with bo and hue was so so, because the beef was too tough but the pork was soft and tender. Grilled oyster and blood cockles were great, fresh, tender and juicy. I really love the water spinach in Vietnam, they only use the stalk and it is so tender and crispy. The cooking was average here tho for this dish, no better than the water spinach in the fake one.

“Eating amongst locals & feasting on authentic Vietnamese cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

It's a must in HCM. This location is much nearer than its previous location.

Great atmosphere, braving the humidity & savoring good Vietnamese food... Everything looks yum! U can browse how the dish is prepared before ordering

Bon Appetito & it's very affordable.

“Similar names, different restaurants”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

It's not the original restaurant called Quan Ngon. We misunderstood the name and it turned out to be totally different. Not delicious as Quan Ngon. Pay attention to the name before going.

“Best Place in Saigon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Met up with a friend and his Vietnamese wife whilst in Saigon and they suggested eating at Nha Hang Ngon. They did all the ordering for us and we ended up with about 6 amazing dishes. Absolutely loved everything, especially the sweet soup for dessert.
This restaurant is incredibly busy and large but has a very cool vibe. After we'd eaten we went for a wander around to check out all the "stall kitchens" to see what they were cooking up. It's street food cooked at separate stalls but all under one roof....fantastic! All up it cost the 4 of us approx $10pp for 6 mains, 8 drinks and 2 desserts. Total bargain.
Whilst I wasn't a fan of Saigon I would go back just to eat at Nha Hang Ngon!
