I had the Vietnamese curry and my bf had one of the beef stir fries and both were delicious. Staff were really friendly and spoke English. Overall a great experience and can't figure out why it isn't rated higher!

Lots of choice on the menu, so went back the following night. Both meals excellent, and plenty of it. Normal Happy Hour deals apply. Staff were friendly, and on the ball. Had to wait for a table the second visit, so that says something.

I've been to Asian Kitchen, hidden away down a quiet alley, 4 times. Great service (not "London high class", but then this is HCM, great for location), inexpensive and well made food. Leagues above most in the area for food, service and atmosphere. I've seen and spoken with at least two travelling couples who came every night of their trips.... More

For our last lunch in saigon before returning to the UK, we found this fabulous little restaurant, down a narrow lane near the hotel. The menu was fairly extensive and we really enjoyed our choices: fish in clay pot and a seafood hotpot. Both came sizzling hot, the hotpot with its own burner. We were away from the worst traffic...

Best place on the area. Very friendly staff and great quality value. The perfect place to chill down from the city. 100% recommend if you are around.

Took uber from Ben Thanh Market area and cost VND 24k to reach. Really amazed with the varieties of menu they have! So many choices, we order the crocodile hot pot and the soup is nice. Curry is quite special but abit diluted. Fried fish with butter lemon is not that good. We quite love the banana n strawberry smoothies... More

The restaurant is hidden in an alley between Bui Vien and Pham Ngu Lao street, but it's worth visiting. The staffs speak very good English, one of them can even speak French. The decoration is nice and refreshing. Moreover, the food is amazing, with a reasonable price.

Nothing much to say here. The food was ok but nothing stood out as really good or bad. The service was fine and the restaurant is a decent size. In a city full of amazing food this was a little disappointing.
