This place is just like Swensen's. If you're craving ice cream, this place will fill the bill. Unfortunately, they give you hardly any chocolate sauce if you order a sundae and you have to order more on the side. But the flavors are ok and quickly satisfy if that's what you crave. The quality isn't on the level of Hagen Dazs but it's acceptable enough.

“Illy coffee!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Didn't try the ice cream, but was very happy with the coffee :) Don't expect much from the mall it's situated in, European prices.

“Bud's Ice Cream of San Francisco, Ho Chi Minh City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

After two weeks of excellent Vietnamese food, which is very good, it was a pleasant surprise to find a real American ice cream parlor in Ho Chi Minh City. There is a great selection of flavors and different types of shakes, sundaes, etc. The service is very good and prompt. They have mastered how to satisfy the Western customer which wants fast service and quickly pay the check. Was nice to relax just for awhile and think about all the ice cream options. The room has atmosphere of the soda shop of 1950-60s in US. Was nice to find this place and get a great ice cream treat. Prices are reasonable, but didn't matter so much as I would have spent more just to have some good old American ice cream.
