The two areas in this restaurant provide ample opportunity for chilling out. The al fresco Sanctuary area is great for people-watching and sampling some "nutriceutical" items from the menu. If you prefer something indoors, the neo-classical Nude Restaurant has both stunning decor and a tantalising menu of Laotian, Cambodian and Vietnamese food.
Coming out from one of the other restaurants on Club St we looked around for somewhere to have a quiet beer before heading home. SaVanh bar was the firs place we went into and was for me, hard to leave. Great atmosphere and the music was low enough that we could easily talk and still enjoy the relaxed tunes. The great design and water features, the statues and holes in the walls with candles made the feeling of the place more comfortable, if you like your bar sterilized glass and shinny minimalist then this isn't for you.
I'll be popping by for a pint or two here again.
Why did I go back to this over-priced hole?
Everything tastes like chilli, lime and sugar but to enjoy this ground-breaking combination of flavours you get charged a small fortune. I really can't stand this place and I hereby go on the record to say I'll never again patronise their outlets (unless of course it's a free corporate event like the other reviewer attended)
Above best describes this place at Club St. Owner is Indo Chinese - Cambodian?? and has decorated the place in this theme. Set along a row of old shophouses at Club Street, this place is quaint and has a deep bar / dining area. As it was a corporate function, it was fairly crowded and the food served was only finger food.
Reservation: For drinking, no reservation needed but diners will probably want to book a place.
Food / Beverages: I have problems with rating beverages in bars as they are all the same stock, beer, rum, whiskey etc. That's it for beverages at this place. Food, unfortunately was not top because it was a corporate event. Vietnames poh piah (rice skin), samosas, sticks of meat were served. Not exciting but I guess with the limited budget, it was OK.
Ambience: Dark setting, a bit on the eerie side especially with the strange carvings, tapestries and busts hung all over the place. Not a place I would bring a girl on a first date. She'd think you're and Indiana Jones wanna be.
Value: Free so cannot comment.
Service: Poor during this event.
