Our Chef Steven Long assisted Bếp Gia Đì with making some lovely "lucky red" dishes for the year of the monkey! See below and enjoy cooking with your family during TET!

We received a great review from Oi Vietnam! Please see below how they fell in love with the architecture of our old building!

Oi Magazine: Ho Chi Minh city is a dynamic city, energetic and colorful. Oi goes further than anyone else to reflect the distinct voice, character and spirit of those who proudly call Vietnam home.

One of Asia's most respected travel magazines Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia wrote a glowing piece about Saigon and mentioned Café-Restaurant Ho Chi Minh City: Cafe-Restaurant Staking their claim on the so-hot-right-now Ben Thanh circle, the owners of this just-opened all-day endeavor are trying their best to be all things to all people. Their beautifully restored slice of this heritage block is at least triple-wide, giving the second-floor space room to breathe. A lounge area, bar, main dining section and open kitchen mean you’re welcome to linger over a coffee and your laptop, or book a big table with friends for a raucous dinner. We’d strongly suggest you get anything that comes out of their Big Green Egg, an imported Kamado-style cooker from which we sampled the supplest whole roasted young chicken. This is an excellent option for Sunday brunch, especially if you want to take advantage of the lovely landscaped roof garden.; meal for two VND600,000.
