Why The Tibetan Coffee Shop is special ?
The Tibetan Coffee Shop modestly locates in a small lane of Nguyen Van Troi road, Phu Nhuan district, and considered as a tranquil place for Buddhist devotees. Most of decorations in the shop were brought from Tibet so it looks very unique. The ceiling is hung with prayer flags of Tibetan people. Many photographs of Tibet covered walls which make visitors feel like in a miniature Tibet in the heart of Saigon.
The café shop has a small corner to sell and display Tibetan items such as: incense burner, tea, silver rings, etc. Second floor is a place to set a small altar used for people who like meditation. The shop uses Tibet Buddhism music that makes visitors feel like passing into nothingness. When enjoying, such these sound will bring you a restful feeling.

Tips for you
In a bustling noisy city like Sai Gon it's very difficult to find a quiet space to relax, drink a coffee or tea and eat a small meal, but that's what I've found at the Tibet Coffee Shop. As you might imagine from it's name, Tibet Coffee Shop is decorated with dozens of photos and memorabilia from Tibet as well as an eclectic mix of interesting furniture, lamps etc. The decor is "busy" but delightful with a choice of seating ranging from comfortable lounges to ratten floor space. The menu has a very long list of healthy smoothies and fruit concoctions along with local coffee and Tibetan tea. So far I've enjoyed all that I've tried. They have a small vegetarian food menu and I've found the food to be very good. There are 2 levels for customers and further levels which are private, but being nosey as I am I discovered they have a beautiful Tibetan prayer room on a higher level. One criticism that I have is the toilet arrangement. There is only one toilet for guests and staff and it's located at the rear of the second level. It's not the lest bit sound-proof and if you happen to be sitting close to it you get to hear some very graphic noises, nor is it smell-proof when the door is left open. In future I'll only sit at the ground level thanks :-) Well worth a visit, particularly if you need a quiet place to read a book or work on a laptop, they have free wi-fi.
