A lovely restaurant in the heart of Vinh. The fish dishes are superb. They do one where the fish is cooked in sugar with small pieces of pork and red chilli in a black pot. The result is a delicious, thick sauce and succulent piece of fish that melt in your mouth. Lovely outdoor Seating in a courtyard. Great staff, attentive and quick. Recommended.

This is a hotel restaurant close to Muong Song Lam Hotel. It was empty when we got there but the staff welcomed us nicely and spoke reasonable English as our Vietnamese is sadly non existent. The menu was quite extensive and the food tasty. It is a shame that all the restaurants that we have visited so far in Vietnam serve the starter and main course at the same time. The food was tasty, especially the deep fried squid in batter. It was very good value and the beer was only 18,000 dong a bottle plus service and tax.

We had the bolognese pasta as starter, it was okay but the sauce was a bit sweet. We wanted to order grilled pork as maindish but this was not available, so we ordered chicken with fries and salad. When the waiter served the chicken, he didn't pick up the empty plates of the pasta so our whole table was full with plates. Chicken was terrible, tasted like frozen chicken being fried. Fries were cold and the salad was okay. We had ordered garlicbread as appatizer, this was good. We had water for drinks and paid 240000 dong in total, around 12 dollar.

GoGi house brings customers to peaceful lanes with its paradise of Korean popular barbeque beef. The food will be served on fire and without smoke. There is a variety of beef types there. Some other Korean authentic food which should not be missed are cold noodle, kimchi soup and hotpot...
A nice place to dine if you want to eat grilled meat or sort of korean food. It is clean with attentive staff. An alternative place to take visitors or friends to dine out in Vinh City

At Vuvuzela - Beer Club, almost any draught beer can be found from popular ones like: Tiger, Calsbergs to Zamky - one type of Czech draught beer known for the first time in Vietnam. Beside beer, multi-national cuisines and beautiful waitress (Vuvuzela cheery team) are other acttractive features that make Vuvuzela different.
This place is essentially the hooters of Vietnam. That being said it's nice because they offer a huge selection of beer which is often tough to come by in Vietnam. If you're looking for something fun to do at night in Vinh, Vuvuzela is good option. Another plus: they have several TVs playing sports at all times.

We are a french-vietnamese couple. We have some roots in this city so we decided to open a western restaurant aswell as vietnamese dishes. We are the first foreigners that open a restaurant here so we became the place where the few expats of the city meets to talk. We organize a special french menu once a month for our friends expats, visitors and locals on a common large table, so we can keep the contacts all together. On normal days we do our own burger from A to Z for 50.000 VND, pizza size 30cms for around 100.000 VND, pasta from all kind, bolognese, salmon, chicken with white sauce, the price is from 50.000 VND for the bolognese to 120.000 for the salmon. We got our own NESPRESSO machine from France so we are able to make real espresso, which lacks in this city. The ambiance is very friendly, we have only a few expats and visitors in the city, so the contact is usually directly made between us, we are now a little group to meet on a regular basis. We are also one of the few place of the city that can speak english french and vietnamese, so if you need some help with the Vietnamese language we can help, aswell if you have some questions about the country or the city. We can take pre-order so you don't have to wait, just send a text, we do Delivery too. We have a cafe-bar space and a restaurant space inside.
Being vegetarian my favorite thing to order is their fresh homemade pizza. One I the few places that does not use MSG and has quality taste and presentation. The lovely cooks also prepared a fresh flavorful veggie and rice dish ! I truly am happy that I found this place. I encourage everyone to stop by. :) you will not be disappointed! All the best nhung and chris , keep up the good vibe. I will see you again in the future!

We stayed in Vinh for 2 nights, and based on restaurants and cafés, the town has little to offer. This is the one exception to that statement, if you're looking for a good cup of coffee. Order their espresso and prepare to be blown away.
Vinh City between an own garden every day are vast with numerous places to eat, play, the factors "play" has become so ordinary, instead of "top players", "play hard" with wine , top music and the beautiful pink ball ... new interesting element is the guest of most interest. But where was the place to meet the criteria of this fussy? Welove Pub is your answer.
