Really poor. Same menu as a lot of other local options. Broth for the Pho was completely tasteless, service was awful, toilets were dirty and the whole place smacked of "make a cheap buck whilst you can". Worst place I visited in HCMC. Garlic toast...More

The sign for 10,000 VND Saigon Green beer caught my attention, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered one of my favorites, stir-fried chicken with vegetables and cashew nuts, and was not disappointed. Will definitely go back again.

Widest ranging menu for a small cafe,American,European,Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Loved the atmosphere, like a place where they treat you like family. Clean washrooms upstairs, front of restaurant open to street. Could not believe how reasonable prices were for quality and quantity of food.

Great to see some things don't change, came back after nearly a year, staff all remembered my name, was great. Just around the corner from Bui Vein, next to Sinh Tourist office this place is still half the price for drinks and food compared to...More
