👉 First, access to Ong Pa is via a dirt road in a crescent, actually at the end of the winding Nguyen Van Hong street. There is a white sign on your left that will reassure you that you have arrived at the right place

Once Arrived … Take care to look around you… 👀 watch where you put your feet after heaving rains, look at the luxurious residence on your right, banana trees on your left …

Ong Pa offers you a nice variety of meals and desserts mainly from Northern Vietnam. The Bar is interesting and you will be shown around the wine cellar for your choice of wine to accompany your meal. We forgot… Ong Pa offers Thai food. As the temperature is hot in Saigon, a good cold beer will quench your thirst.

We are frequent customers and we have seen that before and after the pandemic and the restrictive measures, the same staff is in place.

And here we are to reveal a secret to you and what is in honor of the passionate Proprio Ong Pa: his generosity! We are lucky to know him and appreciate his humor, his discretion, his availability, his simplicity and above all his passion that of a good farmer who loves people and life.

It is this passion that you will rediscover on each of your visits.

Little publicity is made … good luck if you find some – and we suspect that Ong Pa is well-loved by its local and westerners as we observed during our visits.
