I went in there on my way home. There was just me and two others in the bar and it stayed that way. I was informed as I ordered that all the drinks where half price. This maybe because since there was a scare regarding...the virus in there a couple of months ago. I sat and had a few drinks with the two other guys who I think were regulars. Both decent fellas to he fair. When the bill came I had been charged full price for the drinks. One of the regulars kicked off saying what the F*** Right away the barman starts shouting at me F*** you and F*** your mother and various other disgusting words. My friend was about to lose his temper when I calmed the situation down. I told the barman I'm happy to pay full price but after lying to me this will he the last time I come here. He started shouting again saying I tried to tell you that after midnight it's full price F*** off F*** you. I smiled ok mate it's not worth getting upset about. I paid my bill of 300k (£10) and left. When I left the barman seemed to be really pleased with himself like he had won. There are no winners in this only losers. I've been in Saigon 10 months and this is my fourth and final trip to buddha bar. There are dozens of places to go Heres a thought considering your bar is empty and everyone is terrified of getting sick, why not use the time to maybe give your staff some customer service training you gang of absolute jokers. Save that nonsense for brand new English teachers.More

As I mention in the title, we went there that is the only place open late in Thao Dien. There are many choices of beer. I didn't see any local. Live band was there, ppl on pool tables. not for us. But the place is...pretty big, if you wanna avoid the crowd, you can choose sitting outside as well. The price are not cheap. As I say, this is the place for late night. Not recommended in my opinion.More

If you don't want to be murdered, never go there. We had a trouble with the waiter on December 14. When everyone uses a fork, the only thing be allowed was a toothpick. So I complained, and trouble. Finally, we paid the bill and waiting...for a taxi. but……. The waiter on the motorcycle hit me my head with something. On the main street. around 10 pm.. If I'm alone, I might be dead. If you want to go to this restaurant, please say goodbye to your family first.More

i never come to a bad place like this before, bad foods, bad staff ever, me and my friends was ordered Ham & Chesse but then what i get is just 5 small pieces w full of potatoes w mushroom and little chesse, also the...price is 180k.. it's not worth for that price we have to pay.. wth is that?? . Very in a bad mood w it.. Also i saw that this place will close at 3am, but just 12:30 some staff here just turn off all the lights, clean up and put all the chairs to the top of tables, like they want to tell us that "we close now, just go back home.." We're really unhappy and unsatisfied w a place like this. SUCH A BAD PLACE TO COME and for sure NEVER COME BACKMore

We met with a friend to catch up, over a few drinks. The screens show what is currently on in the sports world, the drinks are not cheap but not overpriced either, and it provided a good place to chat without too much noise or...being disturbed. Yes, smoking is still rife in outlets in HCMC so expect clothes and hair to smell of smoke, but no more than other places that still allow smoking on the premises.More
