Temple Club

With a romantic atmosphere

Photo of Temple Club

What we say: 4 stars

Hidden down a tight hallway next to an ice cream shop in a building shared with another fine restaurant, the Temple Club is one of the most atmospheric establishments you'll find in Saigon.

Built in what was once an actual temple, it is decorated with Buddhist tapestries, throw rugs and antique furniture, all of which is also for sale.

The gourmet menu covers all the major regions of Vietnam and is quite good, but very expensive for Vietnamese food, with mains starting around 120,000 VND.

While it may be expensive, you have the option of skipping the food and hanging out in the lounge adjacent to the dining area, allowing you to still experience the romantic atmosphere. Reservations recommended.
