We ordered some beers and food. Waiters very slowly. Parasitic smiling hookers sitting outside alone or in small groups watching us all the time. Annoying. We asked 2 times for the change.

My partner and I found this place trying to find somewhere to watch the AFL and they were able to play it for us. We visited this place nearly everyday we were in Ho Chi Minh City. Friendly Staff and yummy food.

Great location on Bui Vien for people watching, let down by terrible service, a man could die of thirst.

Entered this place just cause I loved the live music they were playing. Ordered a couple beers. The service was prompt. The waiters were friendly. Great place for catching the action on Bui vien, flame throwers and people watching.
