In France "le bouchon" is a type of restaurant (typically in Lyon) providing a convivial atmosphere and offering affordable and substantial food (as opposed to some fine dining options). This is the format adopted by Le Bouchon de Saigon.

I have visited the restaurant several times and I am aware of French people that eat there. I found it a bit hit or miss, the same dish once is good and the next time is questionable. One of their specialty for example is mussels, last time I ordered I got what in my opinion was second grade quality mussels (small and not meaty) and I could not enjoy the dish. They also have a reasonable range of other French classic dishes, both meat and seafood, while they might be good the overall pirce-quality in my opinion is not there.

We stumbled across this place and were nicely surprised. As soon as we sat down we were all given a drink. The kids food was served super fast. The desserts - especially the creme brûlée were delicious. Great food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Food is terrible in this restaurant and I do not understand why they call it " Le Bouchon" this have nothing to see with French cuisine, the salad was terrible and the grilled steak was just a piece of boiled meat half fat and half meat which I couldn't describe, the french fries was horrible... very expensive for what it is... not recommended at all
