Terrible. If you want to keep your phone or handbag do not go anywhere near this bar. Friend had phone stolen out of his pocket, security didn't care. Dodgy grubby thieves wait outside and nearby on bikes and steal handbags when u leave. Stay away heaps better bars elsewhere.

This was without a doubt the absolute worst restaurant I have ever been to with the rudest and most unfriendly staff i have ever encountered. I thought our experience was horrendous until I read other reviews. Please AVOID this disgusting venue. It sickens me to know humans can be so nasty. Please don't support the drugged drinks, theft, and the... More

My friend bought ONE beer that was druged behind the bar - she got her bag stolen by the staff and we had to spend two days in the hospital. It is the worst place I have ever been too. I am so angry that this can happen, and I advise everyone NOT to go there.

WHY NOT?! I'LL FULLY TELL YOU WHY NOT. A load of the people from our hostel wanted to go out, and we obviously wanted to join them, but we didn't really know where to go. At this point, some moron from the back of the room piped up "My friend said let's go to why not bar." Mistake. When we... More

Avoid this place. Seriously. My iPhone was stolen here and I'm convinced it was the staff. I only had three drinks and I was blackout drunk, drunkest I've been in my life, fell asleep on the sofa, woke up the next day at 11am and all the money had been stolen from my wallet (1.5 million dong) and my phone...

As my partner searched for a place to hang in town, she came across this name with the reputation of the most popular bar in Nha Trang, so we checked it out. 1. There was entry fee: odd, but okay, you can exchange your ticket for a special drink. That sounds decent. 2. No the drinks are not special at... More
