36 Tran Quy Cap, Bình Thanh, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Large open Buddhist vegetarian restaurant in Binh Thanh District. All food is vegan, but may offer dairy milk for coffees and such. Fairly typical of many of the type, with Buddhist imagery around the walls and a small garden. Facilities are generally basic, but the atmosphere is calming. It has the typical wide range of food and drink options, including noodle, rice and hot pot dishes.

Nice, out of the way place. - Edit

Thien Y has good tasty food in the standard format for these larger Buddhist vego places. A good choice of rice or noodle dishes or hot pots. Not too much reliance on mock meat. Plus a range of drinks as usual.

The food is nicer than many similar places and fresh. It passes my Vietnamese friend's taste test - this is the place she mostly brings her vegetarian mother (and not only because it is nearby her house).

Be welcomed by the big red name,just off the road. The place is basic but atmosphere is relaxing (although on Buddhist vegetarian days it might get busy). It is open walled, but the garden isn't that inspiring. A small point.

One thing though: this place is out of the tourist radar. It isn't that far from District 1, but is very much in 'real' Ho Chi Minh City. It is a good experience for that, but consider the travel.

The menu is in VN only. Perhaps a youngster around speaks some English as is usual, or better ask a VN friend to come along...

Pros: Very good food, Relaxing atmosphere

Cons: Out of the way, No English menu
