I asked for a seasonal fruit platter and it came with 4 triangles of watermelon and one small slice of pineapple. Worst fruit platter ever ! Not coming back to try food.

Not noisy, we had a good time on the rooftop. I ordered a starter with oysters and 2 mains courses that I shared with my partner. It was enough and very good. I recommend it if you like seafood!

Couldn’t be more amazed by how cheap and fresh the oyster was. Per oyster was VDN 10.000 and you have to buy a minimum of three which was okay. The grilled salted shrimp was amazing too!

Five Oysters Restaurant proposes an authentic and fine Vietnamese cuisine, especially seafood. It is located in the busy Bui Vien St. but not in the noisy part of this backpacking street. You can choose a seat in front of the resto to watch people walking and the traffic or a table inside to dine in the cozy dining space. Since the resto owner's hometown is Long Hai beach where is famous for seafood and oysters, you can find seafood and other local food here really fresh. Not like amost other restaurants in backpacking area which are owned by foreigners, this resto is 100% Vietnamese. Check out this place if you 'd like to try a True Vietnamese kitchen in Saigon.
