One fact about Vietnam is that the number of well-known fast food chains in the country remains very low, as compared to most other countries in the world. One can easily spot the likes ofMcDonald’s or Burger King on the streets of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, but in major cities of Vietnam, be it unfortunately or luckily, they are rare species. However, burger and wing fans need not worry, for there are still plenty of choices.
Fast food restaurants – location and opening time
Although the two biggest names in the world of fast food – McDonald’s and Burger King- are currently absent in Vietnam (though Burger King is planning to come sometimes next year, followed by Starbucks), one still has the choices of KFC, Pizza Hut, Lotteria, Carl’s Junior… among others. There is also one brand new Subway in Ho Chi Minh City (at 171 Pham Ngu Lao Street, District 1) which already excited diners.
Lotteria and KFC as two big names in Vietnam fast food chains
Most restaurants are located in busy areas like large supermarkets, main streets and tourism destinations in order to attract more customers. Each has very huge and eye-catching electric signboard with its familiar logo so loyal customers can easily recognize their favorite chain from a far distance. One can find information about precise location of restaurants on their Vietnam official websites.
The opening time for most restaurants is 8 or 9 a.m. and they will likely close at 11.p.m or 12 a.m. You can choose to dine in, take-away or order via telephone. For around VND70000 (US$3.5), one will probably call it fit.
