The hotel features four dining concepts that spotlight and celebrate the bold flavors of Vietnam alongside international cuisine.

At the heart of Hilton Saigon lies Me Linh Lounge, where guests can connect and socialize over freshly baked pastries, light snacks, and refreshments throughout the day.

Embodying the art of gathering over meals, The Strand, the hotel’s all-day dining establishment, features a lounge, a Western kitchen, and an Asian kitchen.

Guests are transported through time to experience the glamor of old China at Residence Eleven. The restaurant design is inspired by the modern interpretation of Beijing heritage homes.

Boasting an impressive duck oven with a carving station and a glass show kitchen in the main dining area, Residence Eleven serves Northern Chinese cuisine made with seasonal and premium ingredients.

For a memorable experience, guests can venture to the rooftop of the modern Chinese chic Song Bar, opening in the second quarter of this year, which offers a comfortable lounge and booth setting for guests to unwind over light bites, tipples, and live entertainment.

The rooftop bar also features an outdoor terrace, allowing guests to enjoy panoramic views of the Saigon River and cityscape.

Hilton Saigon joins a portfolio of 14 trading and pipeline Hilton hotels in Vietnam. In December 2023, Hilton also welcomed La Festa Phu Quoc, Curio Collection by Hilton, which marked the lifestyle brand’s entry into Vietnam.
