  1. 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...“

    • 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!“

      • 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! :-)“

    • 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.“
