I've been to Vietnam seven times now and love it, but there's always a point in every trip where I wand western food and to hear English in the background. This pub has been that respite several times. I think the menu is varied and I like everything I've had. Today was the chicken burger. It's a full grilled teriyaki... More

This is a really nicely decorated and clean bar. There is a pool table out the back and a number of TV's and a big screen to watch the sports. They show the Irish sports which is a big plus when trying to keep up with your county and their development through the All-Ireland. My issues with this place is... More

Exactly what you would expect from an Irish pub. Staff are friendly but have very little clue as to what they're doing i.e confusion, couldn't process a credit card (until I told them how), wrong charging of bill, wrong drinks. A place to pop into if you're walking by.

I went here with a large group and had a great time! They have a large selection of beers and great drinks. The bartender knew how to make any drink we asked or would make something off the menu that we liked! They have pool and a second room in the back with large booths.

Enjoyed a Guinness here while previously in HCMC, decided to pop in again. As per, I had a Guinness, it was mid-week and during the day so pretty quiet. But was nice to have a quick drink, enjoy some air-con and free Wi-Fi. No doubt I’d pop back if in HCMC for a quick Guinness or two.

Great little spot in the hot spot of D1. We had passed this place several times, but finally went in after a friend of ours was doing a guest bartending gig. Service is great. Food is great. We had fish and chips and a burger. Exactly what you expect from pub grub. Irish music played for the most part. For... More

I was invited to meet some friends at this bar and join them for drinks and dinner. It is easy to find and has secure (guarded) motorbike parking right in front. I enjoyed two different draft microbrews from Pasteur Street Brewing Company (local microbrewer in Saigon) and they let me taste a sample before, which was really nice (since one... More

I had a beef burger and it was really overcooked, it was dry and didn't taste of much. Could do with a few more fries on the side. The service was not great, our waitress spoke no English and her and another waiter seemed to be having an argument, which made things awkward when they both tried to serve us... More

Went for happy hour. Good news the aircon and has draft cider. Other than that dull, pricey and lacks character. Fat from Irish bar.
