Description: Five Oysters Restaurant proposes an authentic and fine Vietnamese cuisine, especially seafood. It is located in the busy Bui Vien St. but not in the noisy part of this backpacking street. You can choose a seat in front of the resto to watch people walking and the traffic or a table inside to dine in the cozy dining space. Since the resto owner's hometown is Long Hai beach where is famous for seafood and oysters, you can find seafood and other local food here really fresh. Not like amost other restaurants in backpacking area which are owned by foreigners, this resto is 100% Vietnamese. Check out this place if you 'd like to try a True Vietnamese kitchen in Saigon.

We ordered tofu noodles and seafood noodles. It costed 70.000 and 80.000 Vietnamese dong. The two dishes had nothing outstanding in my opinion for the price we paid for it. We tried better food for less money.

We ate upstairs which was a nice setting & must say the food was superb! One of the best meals we've had in Vietnam. We had the five oysters spring rolls to start & they were so tasty! We also ordered two wasabi oysters to try which tasted so good and fresh. For main we both had chilli squid, although this is where it doesn't get 5 stars because mine came first which looked fantastic but we eventually had to ask for the other one and when they came it looked poor in comparison to how mine looked. We tried to get someone's attention but it was busy and was hard to try catch the eye of a server, after the wait my boyfriend was hungry so he just ate it anyway. For 90k you would expect more than what was on his plate. However they both tasted amazing and the Saigon was only 12k

The restaurant is in a great location for tourists, right in the heart of the backpackers area. The menu is quite vast and very reasonably priced. The raw oysters were large, delicious, fresh and great value. The Vietnamese pancakes are again very large and the Pho soup was seasoned perfectly. Service was fast, polite and attentive even when busy. The facilities are clean and although the decor is slightly dated, the old wood feels charming.

Large serves, great food with excellent prices and friendly staff.
