A good spot for an introduction to Vietnamese cuisine, Hoa Tuc is located downtown in a colonial era former opium factory.

Hoa Tuc means opium flower in Vietnamese - reflecting the history of its setting in a former French colonial opium factory. It's one of the nicest restaurant spaces in Saigon with a large outdoor garden and a deco-style interior.

Since opening in 2008, Hoa Tuc's become a favourite with expats and travellers - for good reason. The Vietnamese menu, served with a contemporary twist, is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Hoa Tuc is usually busy at dinner so book first. 

I've eaten at Hoa Tuc on many occasions. I recently received a complimentary meal.
