This is a terrific restaurant that we can warmly recommend. Whether you're tired of local cuisine or just want a great non-Vietnamese dinner, this is the place to go in HCMC. It's somewhat outside of the central core but definitely worth the taxi ride. The...More

This restaurant serves Mediterranean food and I found it ok. The lamb souvlaki I had for the set lunch was a bit tough but the rest of the accompaniments were good.

Located in the heart of Saigon's Thao Dien area Lubu offers a chance to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy inspired cuisine, fine wines & fantastic service. We use the best quality produce to create a healthy nutritious menu, drawing inspiration from the great cuisines of Europe & The Mediterranean Open Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast, lunch & dinner (8.30am-10pm), or, just a great coffee, a glass of wine a cocktail or an icy cold beer with some tasty tapas.....Lubu is the place to be.
