“A Xmas Tradition”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Every year around Xmas, my friend and I take our kids to the alleys. Frankly, the lanes are a bit off, but it's great fun. Perfect after swimming at the nearby national swimmining pool. The have food, drinks, and billiards too. It's fun

“Average, yet enjoyable.. ”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

We go here in the saturday evenings to have fun with friends. The people are very co-operative and you need not wait a long time to get a game as it has approx. 12 lanes. As it is very old, usually the pins have problem here and there. The prices are much much reasonable that you can close your eyes to pay. We never come out of the place before playing 5 or 6 games. It also has snooker point and restaurant for you to order. So wat else.. Enjoy the game.. ;-)

“lousy lane conditions”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

the place is running probably since 1990s and hadn't been upgraded since. the bowling balls provided were all chipped, some had chips so huge i could fill in a cheezel. the lanes weren't well oiled, sensors don't work so we always had 'free' points for pins that didn't fall. and horrors of horrors were when we saw the noisy local students playing bowling as though it was a game of shot put. no wonder bowling balls and the lanes were all in bad shape.

“Drunken night activities”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

With my friends and I come out of a bar, pub or night club and want to still have fun, this is the place to go. Its open to late and can still get a nice cold drink. Its great as they turn off the lights and play music to any type you like. Its also cheap too and can spend hours playing with friends. I been to the place that many times drunk, I can't even remember if I ever been there not drunk.

“Aging Facility With Quirky Charm Was Great Fun”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

The only reason for this rating was that all nationalities that came in appeared to have a good time. Trying to negotiate a lane that has seen sooo many balls thrown down them was fun, even if somewhat frustrating for the determined bowler (leave the power curve at the door). Levels the talent for sure! Western music (from a few country western to hip-hop) blasting from the partially blown speakers. Left the building with a smile on my face after two really poor games. 11,000 Kip/game, including shoes. Go.
