Viet Nam House

V House

Viet Nam House is a very nice restaurant located in the most expensive location in Saigon, Dong Khoi Street. But you will be surprised because the food is excellent it's not expensive at all.

Live traditional music is on almost every night,which creates quite a nice atmosphere. The staff are great. I love to see people smiling when they work.

While looking at the menu, I got recommendations from the staff and they were all good. the Papaya salad with pork and prawns was a great starter, fresh and tangy. The Grilled beef in La Lot leaves and stir fried mixed vegetables with tofu and mushrooms were also knowledgeable choices for my main course. I think the fish in clay pot had an amazing rich sauce but the fish was a bit over cooked.

They are banh tom. A type of prawn cracker! They start out really small and you place them in oil to fry and they expand sometimes to twice their original size. Very yummy! Specially if they are servied right out of the hot oil!

Have you been to Lemon Grass Restaurant around the Dong Khoi district? My colleague and I ate there almost every other day! Probably because it was located so close to our hotel off Nguyen Hue Blvd.
