    Ngon Restaurant - 160 Pasteur: Value Dining

    by ejgarrett Written Feb 12, 2015

    I have dined at the Ngon Restaurant twice; it is upscale and the food could not be better. Very reasonably priced and absolutely fantastic entrees. Of all my dining experiences while in Vietnam, this was equal to dinner at the Four Seasons Nha Trang; which was also elegant, delicious food but, double the price.

    A luxury site for locals and best for foreigners, where you can get many dishes and the food there is so excellent, is Ngon Inn (Quan An Ngon)

    See it by: http://thodia.vn/quan-ngon-ho-chi-minh-2.html

  • Quan an Ngon: Watch out for the Supra Rats!

    by fec Written Nov 15, 2010

    Having read the good reviews of this restaurant, I was happy to give it a go. It looked truly lovely when entering. However most of the meals on the menu were not available as it was 9.30 at night, from the limited choice available, we made a selection - however our stay was to be short lived. We did not expect rats to be on the menu of course, but neither did we expect them to be running over and around our feet. We left the table immediately but the manager was more concerned about the bill being paid for food that had been ordered and for dishes that had not even been brought out of the kitchen rather than the fact the he had a vermin ridden kitchen and dining room. His only concern was that the bill was paid, despite the fact he had extremely unhappy customers.To beat a hasty exit from the place we thrust the full amount of money into his fist and escaped to the sanctuary of our hotel. Cannot recommend this place.

    Favorite Dish: Pho a la Rat!

    QUAN AN NGON

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Happening place buzzing with people, mixed crowd of locals and tourists but lots of locals which is always a very good sign. A very nice atmosphere of the colonial-style building and decoration.

    Service is good and effective but a bit rushed sometimes.

    Favorite Dish: Banh Beo Tom Chay Nem Cha: Small steamed rice cakes topped with dried ground shrimp
    Bo Quan Ngon: Sauteed beef in "Ngon" style
    Oc Buou Nhoi Thit, Mam Gung: snails stuffed with minced pork dipped in ginger fish sauce

    Quan An Ngon: Highly-recommended!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't know where to start. We simply love this resto!! The place was clean and tastefully decorated. The food and the service were excellent! (Most of the staff were English-speaking) The prices were surprisingly low considering the ambiance and the quality of food they serve.

    I guess my only complaint about this restaurant is they refused to accept a $100 bill that had a slight crease in the middle. We had to replace it with another note. But we didn't think much of it since we've noticed that almost all establishments in Ho Chi Minh were quite picky when it comes to dollar bills with big denomination anyway...

    Favorite Dish: The mixed tapioca with crushed ice and coconut milk was amazing!!! Loved it loved it loved it! (reminded me of the Halo-Halo in my homeland The Philippines)
    =)

    mixed tapioca. heaven in a glass. woohoo!

    Quan An Ngon: Possibly the Definitive Saigon Dining Experience

    by bpwarne Updated Dec 29, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you will be in Saigon for only a short time, THIS is the restaurant you must dine at. Large selection of both traditional and street foods within an enormous. dining venue consisting of multiple indoor rooms on different levels plus outdoor seating. A short walking tour around the outer perimeter of the restaurant, past all the 'stalls' where the food is prepared is a bit of a culinary experience alone, perhaps something not to be missed in itself. Simple dining, yet with an unexplainable air of sophistication, perhaps merely the affect of the building it is housed within itself. Busy, frequented by both locals and an increasing tourist/expat crowd, it can be noisy at times.
    I have read much about this restaurant over the last few years, there are many write ups/reviews on all the travel forums, so many in fact that I just could not believe it would be worth a visit. As often is the case, once a restaurant receives accolades from the likes of Lonely Planet and Frommer's, the service/quality goes down as the prices and patronage soar. This is what I had believed I would experience at Quan An Ngon. Well, I finally gave in and investigated the restaurant in Dec 2009 while living and working in Saigon and surprisingly, that was not the case. Food is exceptional, presentation is good, maybe very good in some instances, staff is friendly menu is quite large, decor and ambiance slightly festive but not over done and prices are actually on the cheap side for a restaurant of this quality in District 1, Saigon's premier dining area. For anyone traveling to or through Saigon, this is a must dining experience, especially if the length of your stay is limited. Rest assured the overwhelmingly loyal patronage this establishment enjoys by the locals is in no part attributable to the American or European Travel industry's or any popular travel forum's coverage.

    Favorite Dish: Sugar Cane Prawns
    Rice Paper.
