Ca kho to is a dish i discovered recently in Vietnam and it is really tasty in this restaurant that I do not order other dishes whenever I come here. It is also extremely affordable for the ca-kho-to dish (braised fish in clay pot) with really tasty sauce. You must always come by noon as the fish will run out.

We went in for a late breakfast/early lunch. Had soup, omelettes, fish in tomato, and another unidentified dish that sort of resembled Shepherd's Pie. All were delicious. Service was very friendly and welcoming, but our lack of Vietnamese necessitated pointing and nodding. It worked fine. 115 VND for 2 soft drinks, soups, and 3 entrees.

I stayed at Edenroc hotel and happened to walk by this restaurant. I tried couple dishes like BBQ pork short rib, braised fish in clay pot. They were really good. Please mind that the restaurant has no A/C, it's more for local.

The very first day we arrived in Vietnam my wife and I made a beeline for Dong Hoa Xuan which is situated a decently long way from our hotel in District 1, on high recommendation from Eating Saigon blog. The taxi there and back was $12USD return. We have been in Vietnam for a week now (our trip is 4... More

The taxi ride from our near Ben Thanh Market's hotel were more expensive than the meals itself. But the food and the honest service from the staff of the restaurant were worth the trip. We tried their caramelized fish, pork ribs, stuffed tofu, bitter gourd and they were all awesome. Saw a guest next to us having a plate of... More

we were feeling a bit frustrated with the tourist centric restaurants in district 1 and having trouble finding really local restaurants we decided to explore the other districts. we read about Dong Hoa Xuan first on the eating saigon blog and then on trip advisor ... the overwhelmingly positive reviews compelled us to hop in a taxi and give it...

I thought EatingSaigon.com was exaggerating, but it was one of the best and most interesting meals I have had in three weeks in Vietnam - and I am obsessed about food. The simple setting and menu made my husband think I was insane to get a taxi there just for a lunch -but then he absolutely loved it. Highly recommended.

If you are staying in district 1 it's not worth a special trip there!! The fare is 95k per trip! The shop is just a small local shop and basically it's what we call Economy Rice back in Singapore. The Ca Kho fish is so so, very small portion and not suitable for kids with its bones and spiciness. Grilled... More

My mouth is watering as i type this. On the outside it doesnt look good, it doesnt look very clean. But if you value food, just walk in. Great dishes served here daily and on low prices. Spring rolls to die for. They could improve the look of the place, but otherwise great joint
