I have been coming to Ho Chi Minh for several years. I come 4-5 times per year , for 2 weeks at a time. I'd consider myself a pretty picky and fussy eater. About 4 years ago I discovered Skewers. Since that time when in Vietnam I eat there almost every night. The food is all fresh and meals are... More

Couldn't fault this restaurant. The meals were fantastic, really good portion sizes and very reasonably priced. Staff friendly and attentive. Of the 4 nights we were in Saigon we ate here 2 of them. Highly recommend.

Surprisingly not busy at all when we were there. We shared a very nice platter of 4 dips with pita and flat bread. 3 of the dips - sun dried tomato and basil hummus, baba ghanoush and olive tapenade - were quite good. The regular hummus had way, way too much garlic. We also shared the Moroccan sea bass with... More

I order a port wine, 2 ginger ale, 1 Diet Coke for drinks. Ordered a 400g rib eye steak to share, a Camembert grape salad and another appetizer. All are good and the price is about USD $60.00 The place is quite nice with open kitchen and location is in the city center. Will come again.

Delicious food - big portions! In hindsight would have skipped the appetizer or shared the main course! Very attentive staff. Couldn't ask for more!

Had enough of SE-Asian Cuisine for now? Then go see sthe Skewers. Nice restaurant with an excellent wine-list and european menu. Prices a bit higher than in an usual vietnamese restaurant but still cheap enough for foreigners! Had the best mousakka there...
