Great place to hang out, good drinks and fantastic view of the harbour. FriendFeed Staff. The food however is only average, so that should not be what you come here.

The view from the terasse is amazing but the food was not really good. We had the vegetable curry and the pad thai. Would come here again only for drinks.

Mona was pretty good and a cute looking place. The hamburger were quite a lot of cheese in them. The chicken curry was good to. It was crowded with people and I think it’s a popular place. I had a really fun night.

Mona is a very relaxing place for a quick bite (try the seafood Pho!!) and/or a drink while watching beautiful Cat Ba from their rooftop terrace. Very affordable too! Went there once every day while staying in Cat Ba.
