  • Love this place. When you come here during he morning, afternoon or evening, you'll always find yourself in a space filled with delicious Vietnamese street food. If you want to come here and grab a beer with your rowdy crowd, it's a great spot for that as well. They have scooter parking right out front, making it easily accessible. If you're done eating, you can walk to the market and bargain for some knick knacks!
  • Ben Thanh Street Food market is somewhere between street food and restaurants. It was built to give tourists a taste of the Vietnamese street food without risking the dreaded travelers sickness. At present, is has diversified the food options. You can get food from a range of cuisines (Vietnamese, Indian, Oysters, Kebabs, BBQ, Philly Cheesesteak, etc). All the seating is outdoor on long tables. They usually have music playing as well.
  • An awesome atmosphere to grab a bite and meet up with friends. A food court with a little bit of everything from traditional Vietnamese food to modern fusion and a variety of options from all over the world. The people are a mix of tourists and locals and the prices match that. In the evening, they sometimes have live music and the whole place is a great backdrop for photos.
  • Nice place to meet people. Recommend everyone to try some beers here. Prices are quite expensive. You will have to give your motorbike with its key to the guards, so keep its ticket carefully.
  • Great set-up of a variety of food stalls, very well organised & reasonably priced. Can look busy from the front with all tables taken up, but plenty more seating at the back & upstairs. A bit of a reprieve from the slightly chaotic food areas inside the Ben Thanh Market itself - a nice change to not be hassled by every vendor that you walk past
