Went to V-cafe with some friends after our hotel recommended this place. It took about 45minutes before our food came, but exept the mexican food it was decent. I opted for the burritos and nachos, a dreadfull choice. The burrito was actually two hard shell tacos with perhaps 20g chicken and the nachos only consisted of 6 nachos. Keep in... More

If you're craving a quality western meal in a tradition restaurant setting, V-Cafe is for you. Offers a diverse menu of both western and Asian foods. I ate here for dinner and loved it so much I went for breakfast the next morning. Food was of high quality and well prepared during both of my experiences. For dinner, the house... More

I loved this place. Although it's quiet expensive for my young budget, I had a delicious salad, and my friends were really happy with some lasagna and a mexicain dish ! People are really nice, polite and smiling (wich is quiet rare in westerner restaurants in Vietnam), and the live music wasn't too loud and really nice !

We wanted a quick lunch somewhere near where we stay. Thought the reviews of this restaurant looks good so we gave it a try. I had pork loin but it was nothing fantastic. Not somewhere I would dine again.

We came for lunch after reading good reviews, but we were so disappointed. When we walked in it seemed like no one was working there, but finally someone came out to seat us and give us menus. Then he went to the back and we had to fetch him again to order. My "canneloni" had cut up hotdog (or something... More

We came here for lunch and enjoyed the ginger chicken. The carrot cake, however was very dry and tasteless, so I don't recommend it.

We ate both lunch and dinner at this restaurant, so it must be doing something right! My club sandwich was delicious, coming with chips and costing only £2.50. A beer is about 50p.
