The Refinery

Classy and intimate

Photo of The Refinery

What we say: 4 stars

A French-style bistro tucked into a plant-heavy courtyard close to the Park Hyatt, the Refinery with its limited but classy decoration lends an intimate feel.

While it doesn't possess the longest menu in the city The Refinery does have a good variety of light cafe fare, such as salads and sandwiches, which makes it an especially good choice for lunch. They also have an extensive wine list.

Prices are reasonable and main courses start at 100,000 VND. Interestingly, the restaurant gets its name from the fact that it was built in the headquarters of what was once Saigon's largest opium refinery.
