Neat little restaurant with fine food and great atmosphere. In heart of downtown but you got to know how to find it...alleys and upstairs. But...worth the journey. Had fish & chips....was excellent! Good wine list.

Nice little American style cafe with American food. Kind've hidden though! Would've never came to this place have I not been told by a friend. Downstairs is a clothing store, and upstairs is the restaurant with not too much street side informations/signage to really indicate so. Food is a tad pricey for vietnam but it is what it is bc...

Can be a little hard to find as you have to go through an alley of art shops and up some stairs, but it's a lovely place. Very stylish with a wide range of products available other than just food. I ordered braised beef pasta but they'd ran out, so instead went for spaghetti and meatballs. It was a generous... More

A little clothing store at the ground floor, with a nice cafe on the second story. Very nice decor with a laid back feel. I tried the caramelized pork sandwich and the Vietnamese coffee and both were great! Staff is attentive, polite and efficient. There's even a balcony for those who want a bit of al fresco dining atmosphere. Best... More

I tried L'Usine just to say I did, but I'm really the type of traveler that likes to eat like a local, so the menu didn't have anything new or exciting on it. I had a bowl of potato soup that was really good and had a nice finish of pesto oil and creme fraiche. The restaurant itself is a... More

The first time we visited Saigon, we found a mention of L’Usine in the HCMC Luxe Guide, but were a bit perplexed how to find it. All there seemed to be at that Dong Khoi address was an Art Arcade. But we persevered, walked right down the arcade to its end, turned a corner to the right and discovered a... More

Great place to visit for a lunch. Nice sandwiches, nice salads, good coffe. Staff were nice and helpfull! There is a balcony where you can just sit and relax and watching the street life. On the ground floor there is a cool concept store. Definitely one of the must be places in HCMC

Food/service is pretty good, view of the city is great - it's cool place to sit and do some work, though the music is nauseating (Rihanna, maroon 5 and Ellie Goulding etc on rotation). Bring some good headphones. You have been warned...

L'Usine make good on their name and serve Western-style breakfast and lunch in a factory-like setting. Some of their tables are parts of old manufacturing machinery turned into furniture. They have a nicely designed, English menu, try their Eggs Benedict or the Brekki Burger. Staff are generally friendly and fast and the overall atmosphere is very cozy. This is one... More
