This bar is a lovely find. It is spotlessly clean, plays good music, has fantastic food and great staff. What more could you want? Oh yes and is about the only place in the city that sells Guiness, much to the pleasure of my hubby....More

Nice pool table, accompanied with reasonable beer price. The comfortable Irish interior style with music during weekdays help relax after work. Also TV screens and the spacey area is suitable for sports events. Enjoy!

Great food, pizzas, soups etc. We were there on the night that a local band (Wanderlusters sp?) was playing - quite cool. Only down side is for non-smokers... the place gets filled with cigarette smoke.

Not really, but you do have to be looking for it. Basically right across Hai Ba Trung from the Hyatt, very narrow front. The food is always solid here, pizza ranked in the top 10 by the Word magazine, burgers are awesome, Singapore noodles fantastic....More

Relaxed atmosphere, great food, good selection of drinks, big TV for sports events. Nice quiet (sometimes) little dark corner to escape the frenetic pace of the Saigon streetscape.
