Had almost meal at VN Halal at my entire trip to HCM. Theyre pricey but the food is not dissapointing. Be prepared to pay one fried noodle around RM 18. If you seek for halal food, take vinasun to parkson. They have mamak selling halal food at much cheaper price.

It is the first restaurant we visited in vietnam since after our arrival in the afternoon. Food was not up to out expectation, with the price that they state in their menu.

2 minutes walk to Ben Thanh. Halal authenticity: Owners are known Muslims. Food relatively cheaper here than at the Halal Restaurants near the Saigon Mosque. Very friendly staff - charged only 7,000 dong for plain rice to take away(to be consumed in the hotel room with the canned halal dishes). Accepts Malaysian currency, serves also Malaysian dishes, and workers can also speak Malay
