Pizza and long island iced tea. Two things they do very well, and is the reason I frequent this establishment :)

We came across this restaurant as were visiting the Nguyen walkway which is amazing. They do have an extensive menu eg Italian, Vietnamese etc. I had a Thai green curry and my husband a pizza. The food was okay but I would not rave about it. Probably expensive in relation to local restaurants but you are probably paying for the... More

This is a convenient coffee shop, near Nguyen Hue. You can have coffee and snacks, as well as breakfast, but a little expensive

Heard this cafe no longer using imported Italy lavazza coffee beans since Aug 2014 and thus their cappuccino coffee doesn't taste as good as when I previously review few months ago.

We came because of the location. The spring rolls were great, but your fish smelled. Not good! We don't think we will come again?

We rehydrated a couple times during our visit to HCMC here - beer, ice tea, sparkling water... hey, it was hot! We also samples some of the appetizers, which were also very good. Good service, nice ambiance upstairs, and great place to relax!

Great location on Ho Chi Minh Square. We wondered in because it was close to our hotel and we were tired and hungry. We were pleasantly surprised. I had vegetables and tofu and my friend had pad thai. The food was very good. The service was prompt and friendly. I would eat here again.

Popped in because of the gelato and decided to have lunch. The food was great, but the service was a bit slow. Nice staff. Would definitely go back. Nice menu choices with pictures to help describe your selection.

Went for simple dinner when we didn't wish to stray very far from the Sheraton. Four people had dinner and drinks for a reasonable amount. The service was speedy and friendly and the food was tasty and prepared as expected. The only bummer was the people smoking inside of the restaurant while we were eating. They were not asked to...
