After seeing a performance at the Opera House, we were given a coupon for a free drink. We chose the closest option located around the corner, down an alley and up a flight of stairs. We had two glasses of the house Cabernet which was very good. We just wanted a light snack, so we shared a huge smoked salmon... More

Nestled inside a old rustic building is this hidden gem. I alway come here every time I visit HCMC. It's like visiting a historic French Provincial shop in the heart of Saigon. The café's menu has changed over the years to adapt to the changing local society and for the better too. The cafe also has a retail clothing and... More

Ho chi minh is a city full of surprises and L'usine is one of them. Hidden in a back alley in a dimly light market, up the stairs and sitting at the end of yet another dark alley sits this very metro style bistro restaurant boutique. The atmosphere is similar to a classy bistro in New York! Relaxed, friendly and... More

Sorry, but this is the very last time I will ever visit this establishment. After I walked in, took a seat and was given a menu (!!!), all of a sudden a waiter walked over to tell me that there is no food. Kitchen closed. Looks like they won't be around much longer with this type of 'service'. Do not... More

Dear HK_G_24, Firstly we apologise for the lack of communication from our service team, it's not acceptable. Every Monday between the hours of 6-10pm L'Usine kitchen is closed due to training and cleaning. We have taken action with clear signage of this in the cafe and on social media for all our customers to see in future. Our service team... More

found this place after reading a CNN article. absolutely loved it. cool vibe, excellent food (when you need a little break from eating only vietnamese food) and possibly the best coffee we had in Vietnam and we drank a LOT of coffee. Pretty, airy and super nice staff. Not sure why the reviews are saying otherwise, they couldn't have been... More

L'Usine, since it's inception, has become a must-see attraction for travelers as well as a regular hangout spot for residents in Vietnam. The quality of the whole operation--from the quality of food, products, and overall environment--makes L'usine a place I always recommend to people traveling through. It also remains the place I frequent almost everyday. The food is great, the... More
