But there was misunderstanding in ordering but one waitress was really rude. Actually since I enter the elbow room the waitress never smiled and when there was little and polite argument, she just said it is my fault and went away 3 times. Whenever she leaves my table, she said something in local languege and this made me really angry.... More

I came here because of dessert Chocolate fondant and it is perfect as always. I tried it many place but only Elbow can cook it as well as the flavor I got in US. The service is normal. Dishes here are big and delicious.

On the spur of the moment we decided to go out for a mid-week family breakfast. The Elbow Room is known for its breakfasts and we had never eaten there so we wanted to see just how good it was. We arrived about ten-thirty and we were given a very nice table near the window. The restaurant has a very... More

We needed to escape the hustle and bustle... This is just what we needed. When inside you would not think you were in HCMC! A bit pricey for the city but still reasonable for Canadian Dollar. Burger was FAB!! Pizza was a bit undercooked but the flavour was there and still hit the spot! We would recommend!

I walked into this restaurant in the afternoon while it was empty with the prospect of there all day breakfast. Upon entering the restaurant, the staff member seated me at a two-top but being more comfortable at a table that seats four, I requested to sit there instead. The staff member became visibly upset at my choice of table but... More

Had read about this and was in the area. Nothing disappointed! Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, nice menu selection including a nifty wine and beverage list. We had the Spinach and feta salad and then a chicken wrap. Good sized serves and very fresh food. We also samples the IPA on tap from Pasteur Street Brewry and a fruit smoothie! Delicious.

Very comfortable environment. Pleasant surroundings. Nice menu. Burgers were big and so good if you need that comfort from home. Very relaxed dining - no hurry from servers. Would definitely return.

The burgers here are soooooo good! Definitely recommend. Although one of the more expensive options, if you have a craving for a good burger go hear! Also, the music and staff are really good! They speak really good English if that's what you're looking for and make great food.
