Special Occasion Dining, Romantic, Groups, Bar Scene, Business meetings
MAY, short for Me And You, Restaurant and Bar, is the new brand for wine and dining in downtown, but the company has been in Saigon for more than 20 years with a few famous F&B Brands and Nightlife businesses among which the initial one was Shadow Bar and Cafe. Conveniently located on the historic Dong Khoi Street in the heart of Saigon, MAY offers a wide range of fresh, high-quality ingredients and myriad international dishes and wines, both by the bottle and by the glass. MAY is a hidden gem that one can't afford to miss whether you are simply visiting or live and work in the area.

CLOSED. I walked by this morning, and the old May Restaurant and Lounge is no more. Replaced with a steak and rib restaurant. Another one bites the dust. Too bad.

We had the BBQ pork ribs. The ribs came with chips and salad. The ribs were generous in size and very tender and tasty. The chips and salad were also good. Service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

The food is divine at May restaurant. We had NZ mussels that were better than I’ve had in New Zealand. We also had ribs & chuck steak which was cooked perfectly. Katrina was brilliant, fun and very knowledgeable. She also recommended the Tiramasu from the...restaurant above which we shared & went to heaven. We would definitely return to this restaurant. The craft beers were also good!More

Walking around the streets of Saigon looking for somewhere to eat we happened on this great restaurant. Welcomed warmly we were seated quickly by very friendly staff . Our order was taken and after I questioned if the pork ribs had chilli ,which I intensely...dislike they offered to make them for me without ,and when they came they were delicious. In fact all the food was, also good sized serves ,we didn’t order dessert only a fruit platter which was huge . Average price for an above average restaurant.More

We found this lovely restaurant on our last day in Ho Chi Minh City which was just a few doors down from our hotel (Harmony Saigon) and it was excellent. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, the atmosphere there was pleasant. The manager, Charlie,...was a friendly polite American who chatted with us for a while. Definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting a western menu but still with delightful Asian influence. I wish we had found this restaurant earlier as we would have eaten there more often.More

The menu caters for both Western and Asian tastebuds and as this was our last night in Vietnam we were looking for a restaurant that was clean, quiet and offered different menu items. We were all very happily satisfied from the moment we walked into...the MAY Restaurant. Hosts were very friendly, our food arrived in timely manner and we were able to relax without any hassles, with a cocktail and beer.More

Had the bacon wrapped prawns, Asian influenced Salmon & 2 Long Island Iced teas. The English speaking host Charlie is an absolute gem making sure our needs/likes were being met. Loved the food, the prices & the ambience of the venue. Would highly recommend this...venue to people seeking westernised food with a splash of Asia.More

The staff really are very helpful so I'm sure they will look for one or direct to a local hardware shop. Add others may have pointed out tho... It's a bar and a restaurant.. Not a hotel!
