The place is filthy and the food is nasty. The drinks are spiked and tampered with. Don't go there for the sake of your safety. Go next door. Good drinks and very clean.

We had an absolute blast at this bar. It's a dive bar, the address is on Tu Hoa, on Xuan Dieu. It's right on the water. The staff is laid back and cool, drinks are cheap, and they'll let you play your own music. I'd...More
