Time Door Bistro, close to Ben Thanh market, is likely to be ignored by visitors because of its humble space. But the restaurant has managed to earn a reputation for good food and attentive service.
Compared to the inconspicuous appearance, their food and service are prominent. Time Door Bistro’s menu offers both European and Vietnamese cuisine. I chose Beef steak with goose fat and lemon sauce at around 140,000₫ which was introduced as the most famous dish by the chef. It did not disappoint. Actually, I was impressed by how the taste from the beef combines with the lemon sauce creating a wonderful flavor. If you want a healthy and light meal, I recommend the smoked salmon salad. The dish is a combination of smoked salmon, fresh cherry tomatoes and black olives. It was absolutely delicious.
Time Door Bistro has a simple interior design with warm lights, however, the place is quite small and can get crowded at times. I like Time Door Bistro because of its delicious food and reasonable prices (100,000đ - 300,000đ).
Time Door Bistro has a great selection of Vietnamese, Italian and French cuisine. With their affordable prices and friendly staff, this restaurant has gained a good reputation in the downtown area.
