We were biking around Vung Tau and stopped for some cool drinks and ice cream while we considered riding the cable cars. We decided against riding the cable cars (overpriced, at 15 USD/10 mins/passenger) and instead sat and talked to the young Turkish guy running the place. He spoke excellent Vietnamese and English, and was very friendly. The ice cream... More

This was a cheap and cheerful roadside eatery right in front of the cablecar. Tables and chairs provided with efficient and friendly service from the owners. Cheap kebabs at 25VD and cheap scoop incecreams at 25VD for a double scoop. We ate here frequently and enjoyed the people watching provided for free.

Food was okay, service was poor. Other customers were smoking inside the small restaurant (about 30 sq.m). Can't really recommend, although food wasn't bad.

This place is cheap and good. Not very nice inside though! Always come back every time in VT. I ordered 2 curries , 3 breads, 2 order of Samosa and a large bottle of water and the bill was only $9.00.

Served upside down, the amiable young Turkish proprietor eagerly hands you your cone in a small plastic cup. The flavors are posted in Vietnamese, but the guy can rattle off the flavors in English. There are eight flavors available. Plenty of seating scattered about this tiny ice cream shop. Alibaba's is a locals' favorite.

A good place for a street ice-cream. This is more like an Arabian ice-cream hot spot that is visited by locals mainly and others going for the cable car.

Really enjoyed the food here, great flavours and for a good price. While the place is a little dated and bit grubby the food is great and the service was good, spoke decent english and was fast.
