Everyone was really nice at the bar, you sit together and have a chat and cheer with Everyone. The Bia hoy (fresh beer) is cheap (10k) and nice. Food is good and cheap too.

This tiny little place on an bustling road is awesome. Freshly brewed local beer 10,000 dong for tankard, and they serve until it runs out. You sit on tiny plastic chairs in the street, crowded by other drinkers and the street life all around, and...More

What this place has going for it is cheap beer and interesting people. We had the Bia Hoi, and it's fine, but nothing special - just cheap! Worth trying while you're in Vietnam.

Cheap beer and a great place to meet new people as the tables and chairs are packed together. The toilets are horrific as you'd expect but you come here for the beer and crack. Enjoy!

Just big impresion. Sitting on the street and watching the around. Very cheap beer, no problem in the morning. If you want to feel the city street life, best place to go to for beer and chat.

This is bia hoi, Saigon style. Plastic chairs with fresh draught beer make this place very similar to its Northern friends. Food is available, which the bar owner appears get from a stall from round the corner. All quite tasty with no adverse effects. Good...More
