Food was good, and a wide selection of beer, plus it was busy and servers were still attentive. Me and my group had a couple of beers each and they had a good selection of ipas there. Ordered some wings and the day was perfect.More

Great music, great beer and great staff. We really enjoy being there and are working on becoming regulars. If you don't know what beer to order (as the selection is so huge), can always ask the staff for recommendations. I'm already looking forward to my...next visit.More

I visited the Ho Chi Mingh brewery in 2019 and loved there beers. I noticed they had a Singapore location, so now I'm in Singapore and decided to try it out. They have like 25 beers on tap so there is a wide range of...different varieties of beer available as well as some guest taps for other breweries. The beer was great. Service was good. Also had dinner, ordered pork ribs and some onion rings which were pretty good. Overall will definitely be back, when ever in Singapore or Ho Chi Mingh.More

Visited here multiple times. A wide array of beers, from lagers to IPAs to Stouts. Beers are uniquely curated by Heart of Darkness. Beers are given fresh and cold! Bartenders (Edmond and Chirag) are very friendly, and attentive, and recommend you beers according to your...taste bud. Food is also good, especially recommend the Crispy prawns, prawns are big and juicy! Nachos are good too. Definitely worth a visit, especially for the huge selection of beers! :)More

Nice ambience, nice food too! But music can be softer so customers can talk to each other without shouting. Price wise a bit steep. But overall ok!
