Fancy place - Edit

Nice atmosphere and delicious food. This is an upper scale restaurant but the quality is worth it! Portion was big. I got the vegetarian curry (90,000) it was absolutely delicious! Big menu with lots of exciting items

Flavor galore in Eggplant dish - Edit

The eggplant ginger was amazing. We paired it with the Amazing 8 rice, or maybe it was Amazing 7. Whichever, together this was delicious. The passion fruit soda wasn’t very flavorful. The service was fine. They had WiFi!

Pros: Delicious , English menu, Beautiful scenery on outside balcony

Cons: Charged for napkins

Lemongrass yaaaas - Edit

Came twice while in Saigon. Loved it both times. We had absolute feasts each time and enjoyed everything. My favourite dish was rice paper rolls. The lemongrass mushroom soup was excellent. No complaints.

Pros: Great food, Nice decor and atmosphere

Rushed... - Edit

We arrived to eat here at around 9:05pm. The restaurant closes at 10am. When we arrived we were seated on the balcony outside which was pleasant. We were provided with menus and literally had someone hover over us whilst we went through the menu to decide what to eat as they were apparently closing the kitchen, even though it was an hour before closing time and they’d accepted us as guests to eat. All food was brought out together, despite the fact that we chose entrees and mains. We were served cold tea and weren’t given a chance to order other drinks as they were so keen to remove the menus. At 9:55, we were still eating but were approached with the bill and told, we had to leave as they needed to close at 10. So we ended up having to ask for food in plastic containers. Really disappointing service. If you had to close that quickly, it would be suggested next time to simply not take customers.

Pros: Food seemed nice enough albeit rushed to eat .

Cons: Made to feel unwelcome , Staff hovering over us

Very pleased - Edit

We just found it wandering around the Post Office. Already a favourite in my account. Great service, huge variety and a true delight for vegans/vegetarians. Slightly more expensive that one might be accustomed to in Vietnam though definitely worth it. Probably the cleanest toilets I have seen in our whole trip too. Their homemade sodas are superb and the curry, albeit not spicy, had the perfect mix of spices and flavour. Also served with bread, for all those afraid of rice. We also had some seitan anda also think it’s terrific.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Many dishes and variety , Relax atmosphere

Cons: A bit hidden

Sensational - Edit

This was one of my favourite places to eat whilst in HCMC. Absolutely delicious!!

We had heaps of food. (Don’t judge us)
Rice spring rolls
Vegan pate
Pineapple rice
Shredded mushrooms in coconut milk
Eggplant in ginger

And each dish was truly delicious!

I can not recommend this place enough!!

Pros: Heaps of choice, Amazing taste , Vegan

Cons: We are too much - purely self inflicted

Tuscany style - Edit

Very good service, the best so far, extremely attentive although since we had two waiters, 2 of our sides were forgotten but appeared on the check. The menu is very extensive so I don’t exactly remember what we had..oyster mushrooms were amazing, everything was. And the food was presented nicely. Definitely sit outside at night, looks like an Italian restaurant there.

Pros: huge menu, very tasty, good service

Cons: forgot 2 side dishes

We ordered dinner delivered to our hotel. The food was packaged well and was still hot when we ate it. It was very tasty too.

Good Vegan Food in Saigon - Edit

This place had a pretty good selection of vegan food options. We had pho and some spring roles and both tasted pretty good.

Expensive but Decent - Edit

It was good but in not sure if it warranted the prices they are charging.

However the atmosphere was nice and given how polished the experience is, it's worth the money.

I had the vegetarian stew with bread on the side. It was nice but that was a pretty safe option so no surprises there.

Not bad, worth a try if you're in the area about 5-6USD a meal

Good food and atmosphere but pricey - Edit

Nice restaurant with a big choice of vegan dishes located on the first floor with outside sitting. Nice atmosphere but the elegant atmosphere got its price: Mains starting at 79k Dong not including rice.

Pros: Broad choice, good taste, atmosphere

Cons: Rather pricey

Quirky venue, great food - Edit

Set upstairs in a converted house, the seating is arranged over several rooms and an outdoor balcony with fans. The crispy fried taro balls were different and not bad, the curry was fantastic and the pulled jackfruit was cooked exceptionally well but was a little sweet for my liking. Prices were on the higher end of average but I think justified. Highly recommend this place.

Pros: Great food, Reasonable price, Beautiful setting

Too expensive for what you get! - Edit

I got a pineapple juice (which was very small) and the worst spring rolls ever. It smelled like fried mashed potateos. The location is nice but way too expensive. You get much more at the restaurant "Phuc Quang Chay"!

Pros: location

Cons: food, price

Delicious - Edit

We are here today. It was a quick stop but definitely worth it. The salt and pepper tofu was sooooo good. I wish we had time to try more of the extensive menu. There were loads of locals which is always a good sign.
My partner was in heaven with the passionfruit juice too. Highly recommended!
They also offer take away which we noticed on the way out.

You can eat better for much cheaper - Edit

This is a lovely place in terms of its setting, but the food is really average. Well, not even, since 'average' = amazing in Vietnam. This place is totally MEH. Over-priced and lacking the flavour that makes food in this country such a treat. Don't bother.

Pros: Lovely setting , Good staff, central location

Cons: bland food , expensive, MEH

Great ambiance - Edit

Located in an alleyway at 86 Nguyen Du (maybe 50-100 meters down from the Notre Dame Cathedral), a short walk into the alleyway will take you to the stairs to get up one level to this French styled villa. Formerly a house that turned into a restaurant is my guess.

The menu was extensive and written in English (with pictures, just in case you are donald trump and can't read). As with most Vietnamese vegetarian places they tend to make things too sweet. I ordered a couple of dishes and specifically asked them to go light on the sugar and it came out just right. Maybe this is a good technique?

I came during their (the staff's) dinner time so the staff were a bit unattentive, had to go find them to order more water and get the check. Seems that both times I came it was similar experience with the service. Also sat out in the balcony and they tend to forget that you're there.

Otherwise no complaint. Good food, good location, nice and peaceful in the middle of a chaotic city.

Surprisingly good :) - Edit

One of the most popular vegetarian in town I guess, because its location can't be better, hidden a small alleyway near the big church and post office... Vegans have to be careful when ordering anything called Thai green curry in all vegetarian restaurants in Saigon, including this one, because I smell and taste milk in this dish in a few places.
I love the artistic look of the place.
and my favorite dish there is Thai papaya salad :) very close to the fish one :)

Awesome - Edit

This is a great place. The indoor seating area does not look so inviting, but get a table at the terrace. Friendly staff. Long menu, but try the spring rolls. I would say that you MUST go there if you're in Saigon. It'sa little oasis, slightly hidden on the 2nd floor above a busy street.

Pros: excellent food, located away from street, long and easy-to-read menu

Cons: indoor seating are not that inviting, no alcohol beverages, A bit hard to find (located on 2nd floor)

Vegetarian Vietnamese dream - Edit

What a great surprise. Ho chi min had many cool places to eat, but this one is also vegetarian. The menu has many options, and lots of Vietnamese cousine dishes to choose from.

Fantastic vegetarian restaurant - Edit

First went last December and it was great. This year they have expanded the menu and are ever so accommodating. Service was great and food is top notch. Atmosphere is very nice with many floors, indoor and out.

Pros: excellent, fresh food, lovely staff, fairly large portions

Cons: too many choices!

Perfect - Edit

This restaurant is perfect. The food is the best vegetarian we had in Vietnam. Full of veggies and so flavorful. Reasonably priced for quantity (70-80k per entree) and the portions are big. The dining room is beautiful and casual at same time. Can't say enough. Even if you are a backpacker, treat yourself. You won't regret it!

Pros: Food and atmosphere

Cons: None
