“A great burger when you get tired of noodles and rice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Hard Rock Cafe is a great chain which never dissapoints, after a week of eating noodles and rice I was craving a burger, fries and shake and the hard Rock delivered. They use great imported Austrailian beef and have some interesteing fusion choices on the menu. Huge venue downstairs for live music at night. Stop in and say Hi to my buddy Chris!

“Looking for huge and nice burgers?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Nice is a nice place if you are looking for nachos or huge burgers.

I enjoyed my stay. Definitely not healthy but it you need fast food this is the place to go.

“Hard Rock Saigon rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

After 3 weeks travelling through Vietnam we were happy to eat at a well known place with western food.
The staff was always smiling, really friendly and very attentive.
The best was the free refill-for as many times as we'd liked. Their iced tea was so delicious!
We had nachos, burger and spare ribs-everything really tasty.
the only negative thing was that we were charged extra for the guacamole which came with the nachos and weren't told.

Thanks Hard Rock!

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The acoustics in this place just make it totally unpleasant. Everything is boom boom boom and 'echoey'. And to make it worse; they have gone Vietnamese and play DJ club music later at night? I mean... 'live music' and rock and roll is what Hard Rock is supposed to be about. The management really have little idea, or care about it I think.

@BandBreviewer - We have read your comments and take everyone seriously whether good or bad. We want to thank you up front for the honesty, as we have discussed and are taking direct action to the couple of items you mentioned during your visit. We are aware of the acoustics and sound system and since we have live bands every night, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for 3 years straight we think it's taken a negative toll on our speakers. We are in the process of purchasing a new system within the next couple of months. As for the DJ, it seems you may have arrived on the one night we have a Ladies Night, that we have since eliminated from our schedule because of the same reasons you mentioned...this is Hard Rock and we promote Rock music at all cost.
Thank you again for the feedback
Rock On!!!

“Music not consistent with other HRC's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

They do a great ribs deal - which I have never been able to follow through on (get through a second free serving).. I go to hear a friend of mine play in a band.. but being used to other HRCs where there are more consistent bands have come here on different nights and found some shockingly bad music but conversely have had some really excellent nights.. not easy to find out before hand what is happening there. I went to one night that had been properly managed as an event and enjoyed myself immensley. Other nights I could not get out quickly enough.. maybe I am just getting old
