While traveling through Santiago I made it point to stop here. So glad I did. Loved the ambiance and the pho soup. Worth making a special trip in my opinion. I was here November 2013.

Having lived in Vietnam for 6 years, I was thrilled when I read reviews that there was an authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Santiago. This was all the more exciting as it offered a chance to introduce my Chinese girlfriend to Vietnamese food, as I had been bragging about it for years and not yet had the chance to take her... More

I'm from Berlin visiting Santiago at the moment and was craving for a Pho soup. As a vietnamese, I know how an authentic Pho should taste like... and this is exactly the opposite unfortunately. The restaurant is situated in a great area, the staff is very nice but all that doesn't matter if the food is boring as hell. The... More

This is one of the best keep secrets of Bellavista neighborhood in Santiago. Vietnam Discovery is one of the best restaurants in town, hidden in a not so busy street and under a low profile facade. Great variety of dishes and cocktails. The Nems are awesome, the poultry, meat or shrimps main dishes are amazing. A place to visit and... More

I have been there in two ocassions. The first time is better cause you are more surprised about the scenery. Food is good, service too. I think cocktails are the best part. Good price for money.

I ordered the beef with mushrooms. It was way too salty and swimming in soy sauce. The chocolate fondant is not the French kind where you can expect a warm molten cake. It's a cold ball of chocolate mousse in a pool of cold chocolate soup. Disappointing. Also, I was freezing cold and had to wear my jacket throughout the... More

We arrived at 11:45 AM to be told by the hostess that they would not be open until 1:00 PM. The owner appeared and personally invited us in and showered us with kindness, wonderful food and service. This is one of the best Vietnamese restaurants we have eaten at any place in the world. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The exotic vietnamise dishes are just part of the charm of this place. The attention is always good, the food never disapoints, and the ambience makes it perfect for all occasions (romantic dinner, night out with friends, dinner with family)

It's been a while since the last time I visited this restaurant, my friend who had recently traveled through Vietnam was longing to eat some vietnamese food, so I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate her in this restaurant, which is the only vietnamese restaurant I know in Santiago and I had a good memory of it....
