“Little overpriced, but good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

We visited because we're both Vietnamese food junkies travelling through South America. The summer rolls were great, but my vermicelli wasn't awesome. It didn't really satisfy the craving. Although it was good, it probably wasn't worth the price. Also, we were charged $5 for two glasses of tap water.

“Gung Ho!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Food, staff and vibe is beter than most places in Ecuador. They know how to cook and how to treat customers at the same time, Something rare in ecuador!!! I always stop for dinner when im in Quito, dont miss the Martinis, u will need 2 be a good drinker to manage all in a night, maybe its beter to split in two days of cocktail party madness!!!!!!

“How can you make Vietnamese food without lemongrass?!?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

The menu clearly stated both of our dishes were made with lemongrass- but we didn't taste ANY! The food was bland (an adjective that no one used ever when describing Vietnamese food) and WAY overpriced. I get it, it's not Ecuadorian... But we've eaten Vietnamese (we're kinda obsessed) in other countries- and in much more expensive cities, like Paris for one- and the food was cheaper and we got twice as much!

Save your money and go elsewhere.

“Great Ambience, Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

I was in Quito in August and visited Uncle Ho's on several occasions. The atmosphere is very nice, and the bar area is a welcoming place for a lone-traveler or a group. Lots of English speakers, fast internet, and good service made it a repeat visit for me. The chicken soup and Spinach salad with teriyaki chicken were both delicious and healthy. Plenty of flavorful options that aren't primarily based on rice was a good change of pace in the city. I definitely recommend this place to any and all traveler's as a fun night-time bar hangout or a tasty food option.

“Cool Atmosphere, Food just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Went once last week while in Quito. I had the Pho which was just ok. The shots are very good and the names are all "ho" related. The place is very cool, but kind of expensive for Quito.
