My friend, mum and i have used Bao Silk for 8 years to tailor our dresses -we visit them annually. We stuck with Loan, the tailor because she has not changed her prices since our day 1, provides honest feedback on what looks good and what we should not do, instead of aiming to profit as much as possible from...

Ditto to 68WorldTraveler68's review. Just another generic shop with a very limited selection of fabric. Found another shop a few doors down (Tuyet Nhi Silk) with some modern fabric selections where I ended up making the following: 1 ao dai - 850 VND 4 blouses - 360 VND each 1 dress - 625 VND I was told by local family...

I went here with a picture of a winter coat and she made it in 2 days for the price of $100. As far as I see, it is impeccable and she maid it just as my I wanted. Couldn't be more satisfied and thankful!

I needed to have one shirt made for an interview and turned to Bao Silk based on the good reviews. I explained that I needed it rather quickly with only a day and a half turnaround time. She told me that it would be fine and to come back the next day at 8pm. I arrived at 8pm, but she... More

I have been coming to Lo An since November 2013. I have an average of three-five pieces made each month including: skirts shorts, shirts, playsuits, jumpsuits, dresses, kimono jackets, etc. and there has only been one piece that I flat-out disliked (I didn't choose my own material in a rush and suffered because of it). Usually, I choose my own... More

My friend and I got 2 shirts each of the highest quality. For VDN 350k (£10/EUR 12) they are such good value for money. Turnaround time was approx. 24h which was great for 4 shirts! Ms Loan was great with choosing the fabric and style. For all you frenchies, Loan speaks fluent french (and english).

I visited this store based on TA good reviews and it turned out to be a waste of my cab fare to the backpackers district. First of all the store looks nothing like the picture. It is small and dusty indistinguishable from the other zillion stores selling the same kind of items except for the nice wooden sign. The items... More

Had two suits and four business type shirts made. Fit, service and turnaround are great, fabric is fine (we didn’t bother asking if they have any particularly nice fabrics so maybe you can pay extra for that) and workmanship is quite good. For the price, it’s amazing. After getting measured, choosing fabrics and designs, allow about 3-4 days for the... More

My brother Luke lives in HCMC and took me here last year, I had 6 shirts made which are superb quality and great to iron. I went back a few weeks ago and had even more made, you will not be disappointed. The owner is a lovely lady who really looks after you
