Place was huge with a nice ambience. Many options to choose from. You also get a free taste of the chocolate bars on display. Tried the mousse that was shaped like a mug. It looked so cute and tasted delicious. Had a hard time finishing...it by myself too. The price is a bit on the high side, but it was worth trying at least once. I just prefer other brands of chocolate.More

Today, 30 Oct 22, I and my sister joined Marou's free chocolate tasting class. Due to some unexpected issues at our side, we joined the class 15 min late, and when we came, the class had already begun. As we were afraid of interrupting the...instructor and other joiners, we already asked another staff at the class if we could still join and he said that the 1st 15 min was only for introduction, the tasting session would take place after that, and we could sit down nearby to join (the current table was full and we sat behind them). In the next 15 min, we gradually became uncomfortable with way the instructor behaved. While the boy staff (I think he is an assistant) tried to bring the chocolate samples to us and explained the process to us, and talked to the instructor several times that we were joiners as well, but what she did was only to ignore us, totally, completely. She did not even welcome us or invite us to join. It was just like we were invisible to her. How could she treat her customers like that? Because this class is free? Or because she thought we could not understand English? Or because we dont have enough money to buy Marou's products? We did use Marou's services many many times before, and we dont expect such unacceptable behaviors from their staff. That girl should be more professional and kind to her customers, even they use a free service.More

Today 17/3/21 is the third and final time I will spend money here. The guy & the girl serving were disinterested and rude, we were the only customers the service was extra slow because they were to busy playing with their phone and looking irritated....I will now attend Luisine where you get greeted with a smile.More

Delicious chocolate bars! Made in Viet Nam, this chocolate has a very deep and aromatic flavor, the packaging has a vintage vibe to it which is very nice. The place is beautiful, you can shop for chocolate bars, spreads, and chocolate candy, but also sit...and enjoy a drink with homemade pastries. The cashew milk hot chocolate was not chocolatey enough for my taste but the rest was great!More

My wife picked this place and i was not super keen, but it ended up being a fantastic stop in Saigon. The cafe is great and had the most fantastic desert that was fashioned to look like a cup of coffee - it was amazing!...The latte I had was the best in Vietnam. We bought a bunch of gifts to bring home - we loved the packaging of the bars - so beautiful - they don’t need to be wrapped because they already look like they have been gift packages - really nice presentation!!More

The cafe is located in a row of shop not far away from center. The atmosphere here is good, you will attract by the smell of cocoa when you enter the cafe as there is cocoa machine setup just besides the entrance. The time I...visited the place is nearly lunar new year, there have a new packaging in red for this special occasion. If you are chocolate lover, please don’t missed this when you in Saigon.More

Deliciously tasty chocolate drinks, chocolate truffles, and assorted chocolate concoctions. Get a respite from the heat in a place guaranteed to be cool as you can’t have meaty chocolates. Most of the truffles are standard issue flavors and quite good but seek out the quite...unique pho-spiced one. It’s sweet and savory and unlike any chocolate I’ve ever had and certainly presented the essence of pho. Be sure to site a spell and watch them make theirs creations through the expansive viewing area. That was a treat all by itself. Also had an iced chocolate drink that was cold and delicious but not sweet; more like and unsweetened iced cocoa with a dusting of unsweetened chocolate. Again...delicious but not what I would call refreshing.More

I came here last Friday. I tried to Marou Eggs Cream. I was surprised at my choice. It was really good. The atmosphere is comfortable but staff not friendly. Because I didn't listen "hello" or "thanks". I'll right back to enjoy marou eggs cream.

We went for coffee and desert. (I highly recommend the brownie). We ended up buying 10 bars of chocolate, the chocolate spread, and three more brownies to eat the next day. It was that good!
