We visited Bambou Silk based on reviews from TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. We had a custom suit and shirt made. As well as a "Tilley" dress copied and another shirt made from a picture on the internet. We purchased some of our own fabric from a local fabric market and they gladly used that to make our items. From... More

Bamboo Silk, In the old quarter near the cathedral. Special thanks to Tam, who was incredibly helpful. Great selection of real silks. Whatever fabric she didn't have she told us about the market where you find an abundance of silks, lace and so much more, Very patient about our needed changes, do allow for 2 fittings. She listens to your... More

Or a linen ruffle maxi-dress and a patchwork top and skirt set, technically. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with the outcome, partially because the whole ordering and measurement process felt a bit rushed. I think the trick is to go in with styles made in the fabrics they have on hand (in my case, linen and 100% cotton)... More

I recently had two suits made at Bambou Silk when I was in Hanoi. The tailor's English was very good, the prices were fair (about $160-$170 USD for a suit), and the suits were quickly made. My travel partner and I brought some pictures of the type of suit we wanted and the first suit came out beautifully. We were... More

Really pleased with the items made by Mrs Long at Bambou Silk. My husband ordered 3 shirts and 2 pairs of trousers. All done in just 2 days and ready earlier than needed. I had a dress copied that was delivered to our hotel completed perfectly. I also bought some off the hanger items as there is a nice selection... More

I had a dress, blazer and shirt custom tailored here. When I arrived to pick them up, after being made to wait for a while I was presented with items that were totally bizarre and not at all like the picture I'd shown. They promised to fix the issue and wound up making the dress far too small, then told... More

I had 3 dresses made after a friend recommended the place. The simple one was fine - the other two had more pleating and were not done well (uneven, bad fit). On the day of pickup we agreed on a time. I went to pick them up, and they kept saying 15 more min over and over again. This went... More

I had been trying to find the perfect prom dress online, but nothing came in the color and style that I wanted. Since my family and I were traveling to Vietnam for spring break, I figured I might as well get my dress custom made on the trip. The dress I wanted was a western style, so I was slightly... More
