Has anybody tried these and are they any good?

  1. Except for the reported cig smoke, I'd love to sometime.

    1. Well it''s like reading playboy for the articles...or going to hooters for the food... the prices are at least 2 times more than surrounding coffee in litttle saigon, but akin a double shot late soy starbucks drink--around 4-5 bucks. Although, there is unlimited refills on tea.

      This article is about 10 yrs late as these types of cafes have been popular for at least that long..

      The last line of the artcle states the girls are well qualified for what they do...yet the article also fails to go more in depth as what the main qualifications are..almost all have breast implants...and if they don't, why they can get it and work it off... interesting huh?

        That's pretty much the main requirements no? lol

        I think what you're looking for is the di vang chain of coffee shops; at least that's the only ones I know about

          Tru' dat!

          Di Vang chain and Cafe Lu are pretty similar though don't you think? Although when I first moved here and talked to someone about it, they considered Cafe Lu more classy since the girls wear see through ao dai where you can see their lingerie underneath vs. di vang where they go straight for the lingerie. Haven't been to cafe lu in years so I wonder if this still holds true.
