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 came for lunch and were not disappointed. The staff are really friendly and the place is really nicely kept.

I tried the snails filled with pork and the oysters - all was excellent. Oysters (fresh) were 10,000 each.

Definitely recommended, they have a really good range of dishes and it's affordable.

We came here for lunch on a Wednesday, and it was great. The serving staff were nice, and although it was not a busy time, there were five or six other tables eating.

We had four fresh oysters, crab curry, a fish steak, snails stuffed with pork and duck with passion fruit sauce. This along with 3 beers and a fruit juice cost somewhere around $20 (I can't remember exactly but we thought it was great value).

The menu is varied and has some vegetarian food as well as many meat/fish/seafood options. We all really enjoyed the food we chose. There's also wifi if you want it.

I would definitely return!
