Are you on a “Saigon down”? Tired of the noise, the chaos, the endless traffic jams? Then Cafe Trầm is just what the doctor orders. A little gem just for you that will instantly reconcile anyone with Hồ Chí Minh city and bring just the perfect amount of peace needed.

Behind the number 100, Trần Huy Liệu Street, in D. Phú Nhuận, you will find a secret garden, a paradise on earth. The minute you push that door, time stops, with the multiple water fountains and the miniature river. Everyone who walks in would take a moment to stop and enjoy.

You make your way into this old colonial house walking on stones, above fish peacefully swimming, and feel free to choose from the different ambiance: terrace, living room, and if you are a group, you can even have a room for yourself.

After you have enjoyed the silence and that you are now fully relaxed, it is time to take a look at the menu exclusively in Vietnamese. But you can have a google-transleted printed version if you ask for it.

The set lunch start at 48,000đ, which a massive bargain if you think of the environment you are in! You get a soup, a dish of your choice with rice, and a salade or some vegetables, you won't leave the place hungry.

So if you are stuck in traffic and want to fly far away, just remember that you have got your paradise pill.
