Good food, average service.

Food was good (ordered the passion fruit barracuda & chicken skewers), pricing quiet reasonable for Nha Trang but slow service with drinks & food when it wasn't that busy.

My money was stolen out of my had right before my eyes by bar staff when I was trying to buy a 15,000 dong bottle of water, he ran to the other end of the bar and put the money elsewhere, he came back grabbed my head and slapped me around the face. Everyone saw but no one did anything.... More

This bar is an absolute disgrace. Went with friends to play beer pong and ended up having a dance too. Then the security and bar staff attacked us as we left, we got paper sprayed in the face and beaten from behind when we weren't expecting it. They left me with a lot of blood pouring from my face and... More

Hold your wallet tightly as this place is a petri dish for low level crime. Be afraid as you should be.

Spent one here with my tour group. Was a fun way to start getting to know people once the cheap 2 for 1 cocktails started flowing. A great Ice break. The beers and cocktails were very cheap. Bar staff were friendly and seem to enjoy the terrible dancing going on :) I would definitely have come back if we had... More

Came upon this place as we were off to another bar but decided we should give it a go for a few drinks. We were a group of 8 and thirsty!!! Service was good. Their prices were even better. They had 2fpr1 cocktails on special at the time and they were not mixing in too much water to dilute. I... More

I don't have too much impressions regarding this bar. I arrived close to 20 pm and it was empty. The people avoiding it somehow. The staff was friendly, the prices were average.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I wanted to see how bad this place really was, and if it was deserving of its reputation! Needless to say, I was not dissapointed. The bar itself is ok, the tables outside provide an agreeable place to pass a few hours, there is a pool table. I was waited on by a... More

Been to this place a few times and it usually has a good atmosphere. However, out of about 6 or 7 visits I've been robbed twice. Once a phone and next time a wallet. It's really not worth it... Although I probably will end up going in next time I stumble by at 2am! ;)
