Description: Located in the heart of Saigon's Thao Dien area Lubu offers a chance to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy inspired cuisine, fine wines & fantastic service. We use the best quality produce to create a healthy nutritious menu, drawing inspiration from the great cuisines of Europe & The Mediterranean Open Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast, lunch & dinner (8.30am-10pm), or, just a great coffee, a glass of wine a cocktail or an icy cold beer with some tasty tapas.....Lubu is the place to be.

Got invited here for a birthday party, everything was perfect from food, drink, service to decoration. I'm not paid but my friend paid for his party and i saw the bill a little bit high, just a little bit, not much. Still good for everyone want to try it.

What I like best about lubu is the Mediterranean interiors. The white walls and the long bar give it a very vacationey feel. While the menu has a wide variety of options my favourite is the humble Souvalaki. It’s very easy to just stick to Tapas there as well. For a lot of their dishes you have the option of ordering either starter or main portions. Vegetarians too can rest easy it’s a place many of my vegetarian friends suggest and I have heard the raving bout the Phalaphals and the Patatas bravas. The desert unfortunately was nothing to talk about, a soufflé that just tasted eggy. And when we told the waitress she got all upset about it and it wasn’t as though we were sending it back but just letting them know. On many weekend evenings I can hear the music from there in my home and often think we should have our own party to the lubu music which I really enjoy. And then I happen to bump into Sabine who plays the violin on Sunday nights at a friends party, small world in our small bubble. Lubu scores high on service usually, atmosphere and food, not cheap but it does bring a little of Greece to Saigon.
