We come to Lubu quite often. Mostly good food and nice atmosphere. We really like Friday night half price Tapas - fairly good variety (although would be great if they could add a few things to that menu) and Sundays for jazz are really nice...More

I think the set lunch promo at lubu is the best deal in district 2. For 250,000 you get a soup or salad, main course, dessert and coffee. My wife and I were both happy with our choices: the smoked salmon on potato galette and...More

With a group who all loved their meals I struck out with a Salmon salad and lemon lime bitters. The salad itself chickpeas peppers etc was bitter and unappealing. I love this Mediterranean fusion ordinarily so it appears an ingredient was missing. The drink much...More

Hi, I am a little confused by your review. You came for dinner with a group of friends, who all loved their meals, but you did not. It seems odd to me that you did not bring to attention with one of the staff the...More

I really love LuBu’s breakfast menu! Their weekday breakfast menu is more limited in selection where as the weekend menu leaves you wanting to order 3 different dishes all at once. Definitely one of the pricier places for breakfast, and I almost wish that their...More

We went based on the positive reviews for the food. Were disappointed because our expectations were either too high or we just chose the wrong dishes. Had the house gnocchi with king prawns. Didn’t have much flavour and the quantity of prawns was disappointing. Also...More

I’m told the English translation of Lubu is something along the lines of “laid-back/chilled/relaxed”. The ambience is all that but the cooking is all about attention to detail. Just back from lunch and still savouring the flavours. The menu is extensive but I was more...More

Located in the heart of Saigon's Thao Dien area Lubu offers a chance to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy inspired cuisine, fine wines & fantastic service. We use the best quality produce to create a healthy nutritious menu, drawing inspiration from the great cuisines of Europe & The Mediterranean Open Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast, lunch & dinner (8.30am-10pm), or, just a great coffee, a glass of wine a cocktail or an icy cold beer with some tasty tapas.....Lubu is the place to be.
