Located on the quiet side of bu vien theyve got a nice free pool table and a super tasty philly cheese steak. A big free pool table and patrons ready to jump in a pick-up game. Staff and mgr. are really cool. Beers are cheap. Can get a bit rowdy at night so go early if you want to relax.

I visit bui vien street a lot and tried it for first time. Not disappointed at all -- it only has small menu but what i tried was delicious and a good size portion. The beer is also cheap. Although it's on bui vien street it's at the other end of all the BOOM BOOM bars so if you are... More

The 'new' bread and butter has moved to 193 Bui Vien on the main drag in the backpacker area. The originator and founder of bread and butter is no longer involved in this operation. Too bad, Dan mad bread and butter what it was and that is no longer the case. While the menu is just about the same as... More

This place has moved to the other end of Bui Vien. It's now at 191-193 Bui Vien. The food and menu appears to be the same including the Sunday Roast, but the atmosphere has lost a bit of the charm and there's now a large pool table in the middle of the place which attracts a fairly noisy crowd.

Food and drink reasonably priced but the Sunday roast is great value and great tasting. Only a small venue but friendly staff.

We stopped in there this evening for a bite to eat and had the vegetarian burger which was very tasty. The burger, the salad, and the fries were all very nice. The venue was clean and quite nice inside, with great music. The waitress was friendly and helpful, and the food came quickly. A great dining experience :)

This place was recommended to me by my friends. On the Sunday I got the Sunday Roast and it was great, a taste from home, even came with a Yorkshire Pudding, roasties and delicious gravy. The following day I got the burger and again was not disappointed. 7 bucks for each. Definitely check this place out!

This Pub is owned by an American man, serves basic tasty finger food in a very big portion. I was here for about 3 times for Hamburger, Fish&Chips and Steak. Food was good in a very big portion (for Vietnamese). They have about 10-15 seats both down and upstairs. Most customers here are foreigners. Price is quite high for Vietnamese... More

Fantastic bit of off home. Great place to go and have a relaxed drink with welcoming staff and clientele. The food was lovely, recommend the bangers and mash just as good as any found in England
