We came here on the recommendation of a friend who visited a year previous. We had high expectations and seeing the prices (around 210,000VND per burger) made us expect great things. But, alas, we were very disappointed. The restaurant wasn’t very busy but we were told they only had one chilled beer left - not the end of the world. Then we ordered. On the menu it says ‘please allow adequate time for your made-to-order burger to be crafted’. Fair enough if it’s a great burger. After 45mins we still had nothing, not even the onion rings that are called a starter on the menu. The meals arrived and although the taste was ok, they weren’t cooked as we asked and were a little dry - for the price it was very poor. And to top it off the onion rings didn’t arrive until we reminded the waitress about them and only then did they come, after another 10 minutes waiting.
Overall, a disappointing experience and incredibly expensive too for Vietnam, even for western food.

Dear Will T,

So sorry to hear about you experience. It seems we had really messed up on this one. I would be happy to buy you a burger and try to make things up to you, as I guarantee this is not a typical experience at Soul Burger. As for the price, I think that 210,000 (8.57$) for a custom made burger from 200g of imported USDA choice beef and including a side, served in the heart of the biggest city in Vietnam, is actually a very fair price. I hope we can make it up to you.
Happy eating,

Quality burger and generous portion. I love the pork pulled burger here. Decor is quite old for the price you pay?

My wife and our friends were doing the night markets and it was getting a little late so we wanted a break and a drink before we went out for dinner. Don't let the dim lit long walkway scare you. This is a hidden gem. We only went for a drink but when we saw how clean it was and the food on offer we stayed for dinner too.
Great little spot and I highly recommend it.

Staff very friendly and kind

Very good blue cheese burger. Quite expensive for the area but the size and quality of the burger easily makes it worth it. 200 dong. Chips very good as well.
