Great neighborhood type bistro in District 2. During my recent visit for lunch I just wanted and couple of appetizerers but one seemed like it would be a bit too much. Not a problem. "Would you like a half portion?" So, that is what I call phenomenal customer service. The food is more than good, it's very good. I agree, haute cuisine, non, good and tasty, oui. Give it a go, you'll be happy you did.

If you're looking for delicious, homestyle French food at a very reasonable price, La Plancha is the place for you. Pastas are great, salads are big, clean and tasty, and the selection of steaks can't be beat. In particular, I've had the ostrich steak several times, and it's perfect every time. Coming in at under $10 the price can't be beat, either. It's lean without a hint of gristle, and the selection of sauces is awesome. They also have a decent selection of wine, and the atmosphere is great, with a selection of different sizes and styles of seating, including a garden area for when it's dry season in Saigon. La Plancha is across town for me, a good 20 minute drive or so down the highway and over the bridge, but I still make it over there once a month or so, which shows you how much I like the place. I can't think of any other restaurants in town that far away that I visit so regularly.

We have been here numerous times - the imported steaks for around VND200,000 are great. Drink selection is good. Sitting outside in the evening is great but bring your bug spray and ask the waiter to put a 'bug kill' thing under your table. The service is good. Watch out for your kids though - the glass doors to inside and to the wine cellar can easily be pushed open by children. Also, there is a little room where kids can paint a ceramic but the paint is NOT water-based! silly move on the restaurants behalf! this paint WILL stain clothing. The only other downfall of this restaurant is that it does not take debit/creditcard (CASH ONLY), this sometimes puts us off going there if we don't have cash on us - and a pretty unusual thing to come across in restaurants in D2!

Not a venue for haute cuisine maybe, but La Plancha is just so reliable!

Simple food done so well- a great place for steaks, home-made pasta dishes and pizzas from the authentic wood-fired oven- it is great value, always busy, so friendly and well-run.

Located in District 2, it's always popular with the expat community living there and for very good reason.

Definitely my favourite restaurant in HCMC.
