On a previous trip about 2 years ago i ate here and didn't have a good experience (my review was very critical of the service). I actually said i wouldn't bother to come back. Well i did come back and I'm pleased to say that the poor customer service that i experienced on my first visit. The service was attentive, friendly and highly professional. The food quality was good and the servings generous.

As this is also a hostel there will be groups of younger travellers having out doing their thing and having fun. My colleague and i ate on the 2nd floor and i would not do this again. This is where the hostel pool table etc is. Well i guess restaurant patrons could also use these facilities. On the night we were there a group of 6 younger people were playing pool that involved drinking games. They were having fun and weren't being too offensive. However I'd personally avoid level 2 again and eat downstairs. And yes I'd be happy to go back.

Thank Matthew R

Stayed in the hostel and eat dinner at the restaurant, really satisfied with both! The hostel is great because of his big beds and the restaurant is because of their great BBQ dishes.

Only stopped in here for a drink - which was cold and large ! Staff were great, if a little cheeky, The manager took the time to chat with us as we sat outside. She ran the sister restaurant as well (The Jalapeno Cafe) and flitted between the two. Great people watching place, especially weekends when the roads are pedestrianised !

We ate pizza and it cost around 125 000vnd. Smoothie was good. We wait our pizza’s almost 1 hour and we thought that maybe they just forgot it. Pizza was very good anyway.

This bar restaurant with a Western Cowboy atmosphere is great for a quick drink and bite or to watch the world go by if you have at table on the street walk! Very friendly staff and great wine prizes per glass...cheapest in town for similar wines compared to other places!
