  4. W W J
    Dishonest Bar Staff!

    “I gave a 200,000 bill to the bartender since I didn’t get my change, I asked for it after a few minutes. He first acted as if he didn’t understand, then suddenly said “I gave you your change”. Perhaps an honest mistake on his part.“

  5. F Fin

    Hi R

    “Hey there, you come alone by yourself while all the tables are reserved of course our staffs won’t give you a table even that early - 7 pm and the bar corner are available for you to sit (sometimes is reserved here too) then you don’t want, you didn’t say to the staff you will sit on the booked tables for a few minutes. Then you walked outside and ask the staffs must call a cab for you if not you will call the police? What?? you were drunk before to come here, how we call the cab for a short distance for you go back to De Tham (our place 224 De Tham) ~ 0.1 mile. There is no cab will take you for that short distance and even outside not raining, pls tell the truth for anything you wrote here. Thanks!“

    DO NOT GO!!!

    “I went to this bar early last night to get a feel for it and to see if I wanted to have cocktails... Walked in there were 4 people at one table in the entire location but it was early. I was going to sit down and have a beer and watch the people come by, but noticed every table and Reserve sign on it at 7 p.m. in an empty bar! I asked the two people working there if I could sit and have a beer for a few minutes...

    Was told the only place I could sit was in a corner at the bar. Feeling that this was not a comfortable place for me, I asked them to call me a cab so I could go back to the whisky and Wares. Was told they do not call for taxis that I should stand outside in the rain and find my own. When I question this process they totally ignored any further questions. This bar is a rip off they don't care that somebody walks in who wishes to spend money. Whisky Wares is only half a block from this bar go down there where they're friendly that are kind of round-trip to call me a cab.“

    Fun and nice

    “Loved this place, came with my friends and cousin and we had a good time.“

    not close

    “Thi bar is not close. Still open every day.“

  12. T TGA Staff
    reopening 21st Feb

    “It's closed for TET holiday. Reopens on 21st Feb“

  13. S Steve

    “This bar is closed and is replaced with another. Shame as it was a good bar.“

  14. B Bill
    Two menu issue

    “Yes, beware. This bar has two menus. They look the same, but prices are different. A cocktail is D90000 in one menu, but D110000 in another.

    Having said that, they usually have live band everyday, starting 10 pm weekday and 9pm weekend. Maybe that's why they charge more.
    But the menu change does not go with the start of show. So, you must check every time you order and be clear with the waiter, to avoid misunderstanding. Otherwise you will feel ripped off.

    The staff are generally friendly though. And hey, it's Vietnam. People always want to squeeze a little bit more from you. So take it easy.“

    Benefit of the doubt

    “Hello there,

    If that is all really the truth, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. BUT let me advise you then to immediately give the right menu to the customer! If we see on the menu that a Tiger beer is 40.000 during happy hour and we get a bill of 120.000 for 2 beer, and all of a sudden you give us a menu with much higher prices, then I am sure you understand it comes across like a scam! At that point it was hard to believe anything else...

    As foreigners, we get ripped off all the time, whether it's by taxi drivers or in a hotel, so this seemed like yet another rip off. However, we don't wish anybody bad business and if you are sincerely telling the truth, we accept your apology and we might visit you again for another drink, this time with a smile! :-)“

  16. T Thi
    Hi Kevin

    “The first, we apologize to you, but we NEVER have happy hour whichever 2 drinks for 1, our Happy hour always 3 for 2, ALWAYS. The second, we have 2 price which earlier are cheaper and late price with live music just 20,000 VND more, our Tiger beer for the late night 60.000 not 70.000 VND same what you said, and we still have Happy hour.
    We have 4 board writing clearly that Buy 2 & get 1 free you can see in the door and the wall.
    And what you told us the truth? You shout it to the bartender that you don't care what we explain to you.

    And if you want free second drink you can sign up Thi bar on Travelgayasia. Thank you!“

  17. K Kevin
    Two price lists

    “This place is a complete rip off! They lie have 2 menus with different prices for the same drinks so they can fool you!

    We went to this place and they told us it was happy hour. When asked specifically what it meant, they told us clearly it was 2 drinks for 1, all night long. We took a look at the card and ordered a Tiger beer for 40.000. We got 2 beer and the bill was 120.000.

    When asked how this was possible, the bartender all of a sudden said the 3rd one would be for free. The first lie! But 120.000 was clearly still too much so we asked for the menu. We got a different card from the back and all of a sudden a Tiger beer was 70.000!

    We knew we got fooled so we grabbed the other menu which we had earlier from behind the counter, and when we compared them we saw that it was exactly the same menu but the second one had much higher prices... The bartender tried to grab it back but that's when we knew it was all a scam... The second lie! So we got angry, told them the truth and left...“
