Its a cool place for relaxing and dating. :) smoothie is good and some desserts. The only thing i like is the straw strand in my tea when i last went there. Staff seem not so attentive on what they are serving, they need more...More

Fine, but nothing special. Overpriced, good location is the only plus. Friendly stuff, good ice cream, expensive beer.

Vietnamese food was good, and seemed a reasonable price. Had a meal with pho, rice paper roll, spring rolls and desert. Everything except the desert was really good (I didn't expect the desert to be hot!). Coffee was also good. Great location!

Grabbed a quick dinner at Ciao one evening in Saigon. Had Vietnamese fried rice, a beef noodle dish and two beers each for $19 USD. Terrific food,lots of it, good service and a very reasonable cost. Ticked all of our boxes.

This cafe serves food and drinks until midnight and is a great place to chill out and watch the world go by. It is situated on a corner partly facing the long pedestrianized area frequented in the evenings by families having a walk and eating...More

The coffee shop looks like it has been established in 1940's during French colonial times: high ceilings with fans, flowery tiles, curvy wooden chairs, framed photographs of old saigon and plantation shutters. A nice contrast to a modern passing crowd and traffic at Nguyen Hue...More

Very comfortable and local feeling cafe. No rush from staff to leave when sitting and enjoying a drink. I have been here in the past....and it is always nice. One suggestion....I like my iced VN coffee with milk brought to the table in drip cup....More

This coffee shop open still mid night. So we can come to have late dinner. The location close to center. It's easy to find out.

I expected more flavors . The chicken was tasteless and the services was slowly. But if you are too hungry can be a choice. I will not come back. The beer was cold an advantage point!
