Fantastic creative food in Ho Chi Minh. We really enjoyed the originality of the 7 Course with wine pairings. We could try a lot of different dishes always inspired by fusion cuisine. .

Been there with friends for a drink. The food was great, happy hour was indeed one of the best in HCMC. One simple glitch: I've ordered a Balvenie Whisky and she brought me some cheap blended whisky. I therefore simply asked her to give me a new one. Since her english was so-so, I requested to smell the bottle and... More

If you stay downtown, this is the place you want to head to, after work. Drinks are half price from 6-8pm and it draws one beautiful crowd of young ( and not so young) Saigon professionals. We later went to enjoy the food upstairs, which was superb modern Vietnamese cuisine. Top service by some great restaurant manager, down to the... More

This was a magic experience. Party in your mouth stuff. I was on my own but it didn't matter, the staff came and had a little chat and the moved on, the sevices was excellent.

Definitely the best bar I have found in Saigon. Service is impeccable, every time. Happy hour is fantastic, 50% of all drinks from 5.30-8.30pm, Monday-Saturday. Quality alcohol and trained bartenders. Anyone who says this place is overpriced doesn't realise the quality they are getting compared to the bars on Pham Ngu Lao. Lighting is perfect and layout of the bar... More

A nice bar to be seen and chill and socialise with friends and meet new friends. Nice friendly atmosphere, lots of energy in this bar as the business deals and socialising buzzes all around. Cool music, fast barmen, well mixed drinks, great mix of people coming and going all night long. Nice place to chill.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour company, and was near the Sheraton Hotel where we were staying. It was easy to find. The menu was mainly Asian food, the food was tasty, not too expensive, and the service was good. In other words, if you don't want to eat hotel food, want a decent place to eat,... More

Based on other travellers' reviews, we expected a more mellow ambiance where we could chat w friends. It turns out sat night is ROCKING, with music levels at club-level (ie shouting is needed).
