I wanted to go to Utopia because it's highly recommended by friends, fellow travellers and travel blogs. I find a common theme with people travelling for any period of time is trying to do and see too much. I've travelled enough to no feel guilty...More

Stopped here on recommendation from friends and enjoyed a lovely, relaxing lunch by the river. A really nice way to spend an hour or so.

Not sure whether I should have given this three or four stars. Four because of the location and ambience but three for the food. Had breakfast here but was a bit disappointed. Food was average.

We spent just about every afternoon here. It's a perfect place to catch up with friends, read or nap while eating and drinking in their lounge area over the Mekong.

Ordered the tofu/mushroom laap and it was delicious! Service was friendly & prompt, and the view out to the Mekong was beautiful! This place has a great vibe. Hope to return!

The location of this place is stunning. Every morning, they offer yoga classes at 7:30 am with view to the Mekong. If you love yoga, I suggest to go, it is worthy. Additionally, you can have a tasty breakfast there!

Great place to hang out for a couple hours. There motto hits it right on the head "zen by day, groovy by night". The WiFi is good, staff is friendly, and their buffalo cauliflower and pizza make for good snacks, too.

Must visit place in LPQ, day or evening. Day time gives your amazing views of the river. Evenings have a great vibe.

I don’t work there. I am travelling too... however it’s every morning at 7:30am. Arrive earlier though to ensure you get a space. Enjoy

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
