Phenomenal American food !

I've been there for our day out and it's a good decision. The atmosphere was awesome and cozy with warming welcome drink for lady. My bf ordered a Burger plate and its so so exactly the same taste and size that he tried in Us. Will be back for our daily brunches.

A great place to go for a fix of American/western food. They do great smoothies and very nice food. We ate the Caesar Salad with blackened chicken and it was very tasty, also had the mozerralla cheeseballs and onion soup. Very nice.

Perfect place that reminded me of home (Chicago). I'd recommend the pizza and the Greek salad. Wonderful refuge from the craziness of HCMC

If you need a fix of Italian/American food, this is the place. In a great area of town for restaurants and bars, this place serves tasty pizza, pasta and standard fare western food. It's reasonable and the staff are really friendly.

The place is just so awesome. Staff, atmosphere, food, everything is just amazing. Each dish might be a little bit heavy for one portion, but if you're Western or someone need to eat a lot for a meal, it's surely not a problem. The food tasted absolutely delicious.

My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary here, it was a great choice. Brilliant food and staff. I had a burger and it was amazing! The wine selection was terrific and the bottle we had was beautiful. The restaurant is well decorated and there was a good atmosphere too! It's rather pricey, but it is worth it!

The Elbow Room has great western cuisine. A tad on the pricy side for Ho Chi Minh City, but the extra cost is definitely worth it. The restaurant has an elegant French feel to it, rustic and classy. The staff are incredibly attentive and friendly, and make you feel at home. The icing on the proverbial cake is the live... More

We tried the elbow room in HCMC since we were in the mood for some hearty westernized breakfast options. I had the lumberjack breaky and my friend had the eggs Benedict. My lumberjack was exactly what I thought it would be (eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, potato, toast and pancakes) and I was happy. The eggs Benny turned out great as... More

Came here for a late lunch and loved it so much we stayed drinking wine into the night! Don't miss the breakfast burritos and the fantastic cheese platter! Will definitely visit again!
