just okay - Edit

I actually had a going away dinner here. The ambiance looks better in the pictures. The food was good but I'd hope for more vegan options. It wasn't all that though. I think they could of done better. More hyped up... was trying to convert some people to veg didn't seem to work so well :( but it is what it is kind of thing. Cool cocktails.

Tasty and pricey - Edit

Beautifully decorated, well thought lay out.
Food is more than yummy and comes in smaller portion than your belly so if you come on an empty stomach, prepare a full pocket.
other than that, if you need an elegant treat for someone special, this is the place :)

Pros: Tasty food, Elegance

Cons: Price

Wow - a beautiful restaurant serving incredibly fresh and high quality food. Menu is very clear to understand and I was also able to veganise some of the vegetarian dishes... so plenty of choice. The atmosphere is just perfect and the staff incredibly attentive. A very special place indeed.

beautiful place, good food - Edit

I went here after visiting the War remnants museum, which is next door. Feeling a bit emotional after that visit, this restaurant was a beautiful and peaceful oasis. The staff was very friendly.

The menu is really extensive, so its hard to choose. I had vegetables with red bean curd, very tasty. A bit spicy though, I asked for mild to medium, but I will go simply for mild the next time. It is definitely worth revisiting.

Don't believe the hype - Edit

Small portions, high prices. 100K+ without rice for most dishes. Thai curry was ok but too sweet. Jakoma curry tasted fishy and the vegetables were under-cooked. Not worth the money,

Pros: Nice setting, Big menu, Professional staff

Cons: Prices, Portions, Taste of fish

veganvirtues 05 Jan 2017 - joe, I think you walked into some other HUM place. It is an upmarket (fine dining) place, didn't you notice the table cloths and many other things, decor, plenty of staff, excellent service? Comes from the money you pay. It's not a loving hut laminated table style. Undercooked veggies? It does serve some raw dishes for raw foodies. I'm not sure 'not worth the money' better stick to 'ovo or lacto cheapies.

Excellent service, quality, and presentation! - Edit

Truly a 5-star experience. Beautiful interior, upstairs and down. Super friendly staff, explained many of the dishes to us. Not as many vegan options as I would have liked, but server recommended off menu item of mushroom and tofu stew, which was perfect. Also loved square spring rolls.

Pros: beautiful dining experience

Cons: geared more towards vegetarian, than vegan

Above expectations. - Edit

A very cozy vegetarian restaurant right next to war remnant museum. Makes it a perfect place for lunch when the museum is closed.

Waiting staff was really nice and asked if we could eat egg. Vegan items are marked in the menu. Prices are decent. Payed about 140.000 per person for lunch.

Pros: Lots of options. A queit refuge from the busy str

delicious - Edit

We loved the food here - so much to choose from! Helpful menu and staff. We came at a quiet time around 3-4pm. The avocado smoothie was delicious. We ordered one appetizer - the fresh spring rolls, they were so fresh! And came with a good sauce and interesting pickled ginger, chili and lemongrass. We got 3 for the price of 2 juices. And two mains. One curry with Vietnamese potatoes and the other oyster mushrooms in a green apple sauce - super tasty and interesting textures! It was one of the most expensive meals we have had here. Next time I probably wouldn't order so much as the bill came to 670,000dong (about USD$30) for two people. Very friendly staff, fancy place.

Pros: amazing food, friendly staff, fresh and healthy

Cons: quite pricy for the budget traveler

mango sticky rice wins my heart!!! - Edit

We tried Hum... after a few days struggling to find good vegan food. The menu is easy to read with pictures, the staff are lovely, there's juice without sugar (not easy in Vietnam) and my favourite dish of all time mango sticky rice! Located right next to the war museum and a welcome respite from the bustling city!

Pros: lovely garden, mango sticky rice

Expensive but truly amazing food - Edit

We had a great experience at Hum. The food was amazing, drinks were good, too and the service excellent. Too expensive for everyday but if you want to treat yourself - that's the place.

best meal we had in Ho Chi Min City - Edit

We had the banana leaf salad (a tiny bit too spicy for us), the deep fried veggies, square spring rolls (amazing!) and the special crispy fried rice (best fried rice I've had ever, and I'm 42 years old!!).

Highly recommended oasis of calm and yumminess in a hectic city.

Wonderful! - Edit

Hum is such a tranquil place and the staff are just beautiful. They accommodated to our vegan requirements and served us delicious plant based dishes. They even offered to call us a cab at the end. We ate delicious mushroom spring rolls, a coconut and jicama clay pot and a fermented bean tofu dish. To die for!

Elegant and zen dining combined - Edit

Vegan/vegetarian eating is normally associated with no nonsense slap up good and healthy food. In Chi Minh I have learned to experience a more refined vegan /vegetarian form of dining. Hum offers food that obviously passed through the hands of culinary artists. Every plate is a beautiful thing look at. One can tell that much love and care are given to each and every dish served. We are a family of very hungry 4 people when we got in for late lunch. We ordered vegan fried rice, pineapple fried rice, stir fried morning glory, 2 fresh spring roll, rice noodles, an omelette, phad thai, mangoes with sticky rice, 2 ginger mojito, bottle of water a can of 7up and our bill totalled to just under 1M VND (45US $). We won't get fine dining experience for 1 with that amount in the west. The servers are efficient and helpful. The lady who served us speaks English. Therefore we are able to explain how and what we want with our orders. A couple of times we were asked if everything was OK. At the end of our meal an elderly gentleman (perhaps the manager or owner) checked if all were ok. We can only tell him how full up we were and happy with our food.
This restaurant is right next to the Remnants of War Museum (main entrance gate).
it looks like a house from the outside and a zen garden with water features welcome guests as they walk in. Al fresco dining under a parasol is available.

Our kids liked their food so much they walked there last night for dinner.

Pros: relaxed eating atmosphere

Cons: If one is backpacking across HCMC this could be o

Clean eating at its best - very welcoming to tourists - Edit

Visited today after a trip to the War Remnants Museum as its pretty much next door. I'm a young female solo Western traveller and was met by a very friendly waiter. The interior was lovely and very clean, the outside traffic only a murmur and a peaceful garden area to sit in. I had the spring rolls which were actually raw and vegan. They were so fresh and came with a spicy dipping sauce. Felt like it was all just goodness going into my body. I had Pad Thai after (though they pretty much arrived at the same time) which consisted of noodle, egg, spring onions, bean sprouts and tofu. Simple but very delicious. I had an icy lemon cooler drink which was so refreshing and thirst quenching. Friends had told me to bring USD to Vietnam but so far everything has been Dong. The manageress at the restaurant allowed me to pay in USD and gave me the going rate in terms of both conversion and change. Would highly recommend this lovely restaurant for the food and service.

Elegant place, pretty good food - Edit

I have read many positive things about Hum, so decided to go with my parents when they came to visit HCMC.

Elegant and peaceful place, with good quality food. I like that the juice section of the menu has a description of the health benefits of the different juices. I had a tofu dish with egg, cinnamon and various spices - it was a very interesting combination of flavours and my parents were both satisfied with their meal.

It is perhaps a little pricey, but the quality of the food is good and you are paying for the peaceful atmosphere, too. I was expecting something really spectacular after reading various reviews, and whilst it was good, I didn't think it was phenomenal and there are other places I'd choose in the city over Hum.

A Very Elegant Place - Edit

Relative to its surroundings. This restaurant is a real gem. It is a proper restaurant. It's quiet, elegant, skilled staff, beautiful menu, fine decor, and a soothing ambience.

The food is presented beautifully. No detail is too minor. The prices are not really much different than anything else around here (about US$3 for an entree), so despite its outward appearance and character, the price should not prohibit even the most budget-conscious traveller from enjoying a meal here.

The taste is great. It's not mind-blowing, but it definitely on pat with the price. I've had street food that tasted better, but it didn't come with a peaceful and secluded atmosphere and attentive wait staff.

Definitely give it a shot. There's no reason not to.

Well-presented, classier restaurant - Edit

A short walk from the War Remnants Museum, Hum felt perfect for lunch after visiting the Museum as they've created a really peaceful setting with a tall wall to dampen street noise and water features to soothe diners.

Indoor or outdoor seating is available. Although many parties seemed to have booked tables we were able to get one right away without a booking.

The menu was in English and had a huge section on drinks. I found the comments about the supposed health-giving properties of the ingredients a bit irritating but I guess some people are into that kind of thing - I'd rather a menu told me whether stuff was vegan or not ...

Our server was able to say whether the dishes we liked the look of were vegan, or could be made vegan and was patient while we chose a replacement for a dish that turned out to be contaminated with dairy somehow (obvs it would have been simpler to have symbols on the menu). There didn't seem to be a massive choice of main courses, but we enjoyed what we had and were able to have a dessert for once, a posh version of mango with sticky rice.

Everything was beautifully presented and fresh tasting. We felt refreshed afterwards by the setting and change of pace as well as the food.


Pros: Peaceful setting, Easy to find, Presentation and service

Cons: Have to ask what's vegan, Annoying health claims on menu, Not 100% vegan

Hum @ 2 Thi Sach Street D1 and 32 Vo Van Tan D3 - Edit

These two are clones and as a much travelled vegan, I was knocked out by the decor, service and the dishes are something to behold. Each we ate were well presented 'nouveau'style. Extensive fresh juice list. As the previous writer commented it is ovo-lacto. But does serve raw and vegan. It is more expensive than Loving Huts and elcheapo buffet 'mock-fake' meats places but your paying for quality and excellent service.

Pros: great raw and vegan selection, ambience and decor, service

My first taste of vegan Vietnam - Edit

Eating at Hum Vegetarian was my first taste of vegan food in Vietnam and it did not disappoint. We went for an early lunch and thoroughly enjoyed their crunchy, fresh spring rolls and diep rolls to start, the first time I had tasted spring rolls any other way but fried. I chose the tofu in spicy sauce for my main along with the gingko soup. The spicy sauce was super tasty but the deep-fried tofu was a little bit soggy, the soup was light and refreshing.

The menu details the health benefits of all the foods on offer and the restaurant itself is clean, elegant and a lovely little veggie haven. My English boyfriend and male Kiwi friend, neither who are vegan, also thoroughly enjoyed their food although portion size was a little on the small side for them. The food and drinks are more expensive than other veggie restaurants in the city but it's definitely worth a visit.

On a side note, I wish I had gotten a soya latte whilst there as soya milk has not yet made its way to coffee shops in Vietnam, however, I now have a new love for Vietnamese hot black coffee with its rich, chocolately notes. Do beware of civet coffee, primarily directed at tourists, which is made from the seeds of coffee berries force fed to intensively farmed civets and collected from their waste. PETA Asia did an investigation into the cruelty of civet coffee in 2013 if you want to find out more: http://action.petaasiapacific.com/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=110&ea.campaign.id=22769

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Easy to find, near War Remnants Museum

Cons: Not for budget travellers
