I don’t know how I’ve been living in Saigon for almost 6 months and only this past week had dinner at Le Jardin. Offering a fusion of French and Vietnamese food, Le Jardin serves high end food at low prices. The restaurant itself is set back on Thai Van Lung and is therefore overlooked at first glance, but this is definitely a place worth searching for. There are two dining rooms, one in a beautiful outdoor courtyard, and the other in an indoor dining room that makes me feel like I’m inside a French Bistro.The menu is pretty comprehensive, offering a range of appetizers, soups, salads, pastas, meats and fish. The drink menu is also very reasonable; my gin & tonic only cost me 40,000VND ($2).
I was at Le Jardin this past Friday with my friends Ashley and Nicky and we were lucky to grab a table without making reservations. The place was pretty crowded so if you are trying to eat there for dinner, I would suggest calling and making a reservation beforehand. It’s a great place to bring a date or go out for a nice meal with your girlfriends. Be sure to check this place out, maybe these pictures will provide some motivation!
Le Jardin is located at 31D Thai Van Lung, District 1.
