Decoration of the store is really nice and giving a feeling of sitting in a warehouse/factory, looking at people and machine are working. Chocolate taste is a bit sour, personally not my favorite, but dessert is awesome!

Everything looks so good that it’s incredibly difficult to choose what to try without waddling out of the place. Handmade chocolates were all delicious, and the hot chocolate was chocolates but not too sweet. We’ll be back!

I came here anyway, for anyone wanting to know, they are not vegan friendly and DO NOT serve almond milk despite earlier reviews.

Yes, they are. They only use natural cocoa, wheat flour and (cow) milk and of course sugar.

Take in everything you wanted to know about chocolate at Maison Marou Saigon-a cafe, patisserie and bean-to-bar factory in the heart of the city. Since 2011, Vincent Mourou and Samuel Maruta have won international chocolate awards and tickled the world's imagination about Vietnam's exceptional cacao. Watch cacao beans roasted, ground and spun into signature chocolate bars, bon bon and pastry. Treat yourself to an authentic hot chocolate or unwind with a glass of champagne. Farmers in six different provinces directly supply Marou with Vietnam's finest cacao. "Makers of the world's most exquisite chocolate bar." --NY Times, 2016
