Visited at end of October. Not our 1st visit as were here 12 months ago. Not what it used to be. Place now offers almost no food. Must have been some problem with electric as very few lights on. The owner said that he was closing due to lease issues. Probably why there was a lack of food, lights, and... More

Dear Disardo, Unfortunately you came to the Island at the time we all do are repairs after the storms, as for the the lights, well it was raining, so we don't use the garden....... You rated us low but you didn't eat or have a drink, you asked for Vietnamese food that we do not sell so why do you... More

Visited Lee's Safari Bar twice during our 5 night visit to Phu Quoc last year, the first just for a drink and the second night for a delicious meal. The bar and restaurant were busy on both evenings. Recommended.

Great food and chat with the owner. Cider, yay! Was just a bit too hot but that can't be helped unless moved indoors. Highly recommended.

We visited this place after having seen the positive reviews here on TA. We weren't given any of the owner's attention, and barely the waiter's either. Owner seemed very unenthusiastic this evening, might've caught him on a bad night or something. Even though there were only 2 other tables being served we had to wait for an hour for the... More

Been out of the states for 6 years and miss some of the traditional western foods. Homemade kettle chips, chicken cordon bleu, mashed potatoes with gravy. Also a menu variety of Viet food as well. Food takes a while to come out but the food is truly worth it.

I apologize for this very delayed review. We came from Thailand and stayed for 3 weeks on Phu Quoc Island in November of 2015. Even I have experienced Vietnamese food in the US on multiple occasions, we had quite a hard time to find good AND authentic food on the island. This place turned out to be the Best after... More

Lee's Safari was across the street from our hotel but even if it was a few clicks away, it would be worth the drive. While it's not an atmospheric place and the staff seem a bit too sang froid, the food makes up for it in spades. Try the hamburger and go to heaven, chomp on the pork with lemon... More

We are open till late, we serve fast food till 12pm but we have been known to serve food at 2am*###WARNING###* There is another Safari bar just opened near night market, this has nothing to do with my bar, they are just using my name to get customers, they don't have a pool table or English speaking staff, so if you do end up there i'm very sorry.Lee (owner)
