We were pleasantly surprised by this unpretentious cafe/restaurant and had four great dishes including deep fried tofu (not at all oily), ginger lemongrass chicken, fried veg and spring rolls. Good selection of veg used that seemed fresh. Plentiful meal for two with drinks was 300k...More

Lovely painted walls. Friendly service. They do a mix of locl and western food. I had fish and chips for 90,000 VND and a beer was about 20,000 VND. It was pretty good for the price. There's free wifi but the password was too small...More

Our family came here for lunch and we were all pleased. I had the beef pho and my wife and daughter had the local rice dish. Food came out promptly and hot. Service was friendly, and the food was delicious down to the last drop...More

Great little spot in district 1. A large selection of food and drink from around the world. You can also rent a motorbike or get a visa extension, while enjoying your meal.

We rent a motorbike because it was cheap, 120.000 dong. Well...don't do this! We had two times a flat tire, which influence our trip. When we bring the motorbike back and told the story, the man walked (literally) away.... Not a good service at all!!

I would recommend to anyone the baguette sandwich with grilled vegetables! Awesome! The spanish omelet is also very good (though not a 100% real spanish tortilla) and tasty. Nice place to go to when you want to go back to basics.

I did not go here to eat but I used their visa services. In just 2 days I received my documents with zero problem.

Cafe style foods, can handle visa renewals and tour arrangements, plus a good source for what is happening around the backpacker area.

Met friends at chi's down an alley in backpacker district. Very busy chaotic area but a little quiet shop to have coffee and food and chat, good selection of food, popular with ex-pats and locals alike, very friendly and some English spoken.
