We were exhausted after a day of shopping, wanted some food, a glass of wine and a nice place to sit and unwind. We chose The Elbow Room! It didn't fail to provide just what we needed. The Rueben, rosemary garlic fries, and a glass of Malbec hit the spot. Definitely a go to whenever you're hungry and need a... More

I visited the restaurant. I order for appetizer the fried feta cheese with tomatoes. It had too much salt. Then I order the goat cheese pesto pizza. It was good. Great service. Like the place!

They had great variety on their menu: tapas, bratwurst, risotto, you name it! The food itself was delicious; the atmosphere was very warm and friendly, cool vintage-y decor and chalk posterboards. Breakfast menu served all day too :) By Saigon standards, this was pretty good value for money (when compared to places like Ciao Bella for instance, food quality here... More

Best pizza in Saigon. It was so greasy, and I say that as a compliment. It was so good I kept eating after I was full. The restaurant it self was very nice. Not very big but clean with a great staff. Large menu. Will have to return to try more.

This bistro actually makes western food that tastes western! Amazing! I have eaten breakfast and lunch there a few times. Interior design, tunes and ambience (atmosphere) are also first-rate. The food was far better than average for the western palate.
