  2. fav living room feeling

    “I am a gay guy working and living in Vietnam for many year.
    No stress is on of my favorites.
    No grazy loud music.
    Very nice living room feeling.
    I'am always very welcome there.
    Dear Jack why should people here in Vietnam have to talk with a foreign gay?
    Is there a law in Vietnam that say Vietnamese have to?
    No stress is a local business, not set up for foreigners/tourist.
    You as foreigner/tourist are very welcome, but you have to keep in mind that you are at a local business.
    Most of the staff doesn't speak English or not good enough.
    How is your Vietnamese?
    It makes me angry that you talk about the Western lesbian/gay "war".
    We are here in Vietnam and we don't have that "war" here.
    Danny the owner is a great local lesbian that does a lot of good things within the local LGBTI community.
    I hope that next time when you go to a local business that you try to find out how things work before you draw conclusions.

    Kind regards.

  3. Not very welcoming

    “I'm an older western white gay male who enjoys the coffee shop atmosphere more than the bar scene...the place isn't easy to find in the first place, and the two young ladies who worked there, weren't very friendly at all... I smiled and was very polite, but they were very'd think they would want to talk with foreigners who come to their establishment, but that was not the case...I don't know if it's because I don't look or act gay, that they were so stand-off-ish, or if it's the "lesbians don't like gay men" thing or what!! (I have experienced this several times in my travels)...I was very friendly, but no response or desire to talk to foreign gay clientele ...don't waste your time, unless you're a lesbian!“

    • Sorry to hear that

      “Sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. We don't normally add our own comments, but our team popped in for Coffee at No Stress Cafe last month and found the staff to be excepetionally friendly and welcoming. Perhaps you caught them on an "off-day".“

      • Not friendly to visitors

        “We had the same experience, Jack, so not a matter of lesbian x gay. I think the owner, the super-friendy lesbian that we were looking forward to meeting, was not there and the staff couldn´t care less, even when we tried some conversation via Google Translate. So... just for locals!“

  4. Fave Place in Vietnam

    “I lived in Vietnam for several months when I was in my early twenties. I only came out as a lesbian about a month before moving to Vietnam and I wanted to have a safe place just in case.

    I fell completely in love with this place and the decor. The Ca phe trung is the best :)

    Sometimes the service is a bit slow but everything else is perfect. And, on rare occasions, sometimes you'll get to see puppies :)“
