RESTAURANTS - East of Dong Khoi

This area, just east of Hai Ba Trung St from the Dong Khoi area, is sometimes called ‘Little Tokyo’ for the number of Japanese noodle shops, but there are many other types of food (French, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Cuban, Thai).

A long-time favorite for expensive French meals in a colonial-era villa. There’s plenty of other choices in the area too.
16 Cao Ba Quat

Traditionally decked restaurant dressed up to impress tourists mostly. It’s fine, with wood-beam ceilings and hanging lanterns, but a bit stuffy and set-up to get serious about real-deal Vietnamese cuisine.
Tel 08-823-7694; 11 Le Thanh Ton St; dishes $5 to $18

Favorite local sushi bar with combos for about $10. There’s also several Japanese restaurants on Hai Ba Trung north and south of Lam Son Square
2 Le Thanh Ton; open 11.30 to 2pm, 5.30 to 11.30pm
