I stumbled across the Elbow Room while strolling through Ho Chi Min City and had dinner there this weekend. If you are looking for a change to the Vietnamese kitchen then the Elbow Room is a nice restaurant. They have about 8 tables, and the service was pleasant and efficient.

Defo worth a visit if in need of some Western comfort food. Burger was sensational. Huge portions too. It's a little on pricey side for Vietnam but we enjoyed it for a treat.

I was just here two nights ago because I miss the home made kind of comfort food of my days back in LA. I have been here many times and it has always been just wonderful. We had the chicken that was huge, the ribeye steak was cooked just right, the salmon we ordered medium slightly overcooked. All in all... More

Me and 5 friends of mine ( wid a baby) went there on Wednesday night and its still crowded. We had : 2 salads, 3 pastas, 1 pizza and 1 egg benedict with a bottle of white wine. Too full to have dessert after all these. Must say that this is one of the best pasta place I've ever had... More

Relaxed atmosphere, frindly staff who speak good English and decently long western menu. Chocolate desserts deserve extra mention. Worth visit, forget fast good burgers.

Great place, with a great band on Friday nights..! Dont miss it. You're sure to love this guitar player and his little band in action. Just what everyone needs when they dine, some smooth relaxed jazzy sounds...! Keep it up folks..!

I love this place. The food is simply delicious and very good overall. The hamburger and cheese steak sandwich are very good. The Eggs Benedict is delicious. They also have very good fluffy blueberry pancakes. They serve breakfast all day! I had a little tussle a while back with them because they switched from real Maple syrup to breakfast syrup... More

I had the chilli fries to start and they were very tasty but a huge portion - I eat a lot and this was big by my portions! The burger and the risotto that the two of us had were both nice. The dessert - the death by chocolate I think it is called - was absolutely sublime. A delicious... More
