Take a look at our list of restaurant to eat while you are in Vietnam. Make sure you won`t miss dishes like Cao Lau, Banh Xeo or Canh Chua!

Rice, noodles, fresh vegetable and herbs, all play big roles in Vietnamese food, making it one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. Prepare to be surprised with the tastiest of dishes as most travelers say the original Vietnamese food has nothing to do with what they’ve eaten in their own countries.

Traditional food at May, Ho Chi Minh City

Located in a beautiful old house, this restaurant has a wide variety of traditional Vietnamese dishes. The restaurant only uses fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Two of their best dishes are pink duck breast with ginger nuoc mam (fish sauce) and the more classic fried tofu with lemongrass and chili. Can you say “delicious”?

Fine dining at The Deck Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City

If you are looking for a classy restaurant in HCMC, The Deck Saigon is a top dining choice for both travelers and locals looking for a treat. Enjoy a meal or a drink on its elegant and cozy outdoor wooden deck.

Have a wine at The Hill Station, Sapa

The Hill Station is a small café located on the Main Street in Sapa. The dishes here have influences from the Sapa region and are definitely worth a try. Get ready for a relaxing atmosphere to have a wine, hot chocolate or a meal with friends and family.

Cozy atmosphere at the Golden Lotus, Hoi An

Enjoy an authentic culinary experience in the cozy atmosphere of Golden Lotus. Delicious dishes, fresh ingredients, reasonable prices, you can find all of them in this restaurant!

European food with a Vietnamese twist at La Verticale, Hanoi

Situated in a narrow 1930s villa, the restaurant’s cuisine fuses French gastronomy with the ingredients and spices of Vietnamese cooking. The clam soup infused with lemongrass or Muscovy duck with foie gras inside a baguette offer original fusion combinations.

All-you-can-eat Vietnamese food at Ngon Villa, Hanoi

Ngon Villa is a good place where you can experience the different flavors from Vietnam`s regions. The all-you-can-eat menus are broad. Something to know beforehand - everything is served on demand, it`s not an all-you-can-eat buffet.

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

Anh was an amazing tour guide who showed our family the beauty of the Mekong Delta! We have 2 kids (8 and 5 years old) who thoroughly enjoyed their time on this tour. We were picked up bright and early at our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City to start our adventure. We rode in motor boats and row boats along the beautiful Mekong River, explored the busy fresh food markets, tasted the delicious coconut candies, rode in a fun rickshaw, learned how to make bricks and sleeping mats, and had a delicious lunch in a rural area of town. Anh was very knowledgeable and respectful the entire time, and her English was perfect! What a wonderful experience that will be forever in our memories. :)
