This little place was so cheap and the food was great! The menu was extensive, we had the Thai green curry, vegetable curry and the chicken tacos and fries, amazing. Just like a home cooked meal and right in the heart of district 1.

The sign for 10,000 VND Saigon Green beer caught my attention, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered one of my favorites, stir-fried chicken with vegetables and cashew nuts, and was not disappointed. Will definitely go back again.

Normally I do not recommend places because I fear they will become over-run, with the usual drop in quality and rise in prices. But I dearly hope that Gon gets enough business to carry on. Gon continues to offer, in an unstable market of here-today-gone-tomorrow...More
