Avoid at all costs. The biggest scam if I ever saw one. Drinks inflated +20% because it’s after midnight and that’s not what the promoters tell you when they try and get you in.

Saw this place when we first hit Bui Vien street and thought "why not?" I hadn't gone upstairs to where the food is so can't say much about that. Instead I just sat out the front on the corner to watch the locals go about...More

Worse! They try to cheat you. Even they indicate “happy hour” they do not apply at the bill. Drinks are less than average. So: keep out of this restaurant, it is not worth at all.

Fishing the guests with "buy 1, get 1 free cocktail", and at the end have to pay the full price with stupid reasons. Zocken die Leute ab mit "buy 1, get 1 free cocktail". Am Ende muss man alles bezahlen, wegen bekloppter Gründe. Kleine Kellner/...More

Be warned, this place looks good being on Main Street with lights drawing you in...DON’T DO IT! food is way overpriced for what it is, actually we mostly got burgers and the boys counted 10 fries being served on each plate with a tiny burger....More

Even the cheapest beer (Tiger) was 70,000 VND/bottle. There was a DJ and my friends and I had a good time dancing however there isn't a dance floor but nobody seemed to mind that we went for it anyways.

The location is likely the best in Saigon but this place is way over priced. Just yard away you can get drinks for a fraction of the price that this place sells them at. Do't go here just for the location when there are many...More

This place is horrible. Very expensive drinks, bad service and very unclean. It gets so noisy you can't talk to the person next to you. Seems more staff than customers ! Toilets are disgusting also. Check your bill closely before you leave, not that anyone...More

Good spot for people watching an overpriced beer (45-50 Dong). Stopped for happy hour drinks, buy 2, get 1 free. There's security to keep street vendors from bothering guests, blaring techo/pop music, Western seats (aka chairs that aren't mini stools) and a Western menu. Fine for a drink, but I preffered joining the locals at the other establishments on the main drag. My favorite spot boasted draft beer for 6k dong (.29 cents) and a fierce grandma/owner that only provided seats to drinking customers. It was less than a block away from Crazy Buffalo.
