    grapefruitmoon, thanks for the reply. I have read some reviews which suggest that both the lounge itself and the food & beverage offerings are not great. But some reviews and photos suggest it is adequate; better than the CX lounge in MNL?

    I don't know whether if you've been to SGN, but the airport is quite small. I heard they are expanding now.
    the beverages are mostly local and very basic ones (like Cocacola, or Pepsi...). If you want some alcoholic, I think you should refrain.
    Plus the weather is hot, like, everyday. so sometimes you will feel uncomfortable when moving from lounge area to outside or other areas.

    They do have wifi, though. That's the most important thing to me :D

    Visited on Friday last week, there was food about but didn't try it as had been at a business lunch.
    Wine and beer available but twine didn't look good so I avoided it, 333 beer could have been colder but seems a common problem in Vietnam.
    Shower was available in gents toilet. I thought overall the lounge was comparable to lounges in mainland China international airports, the basics but nothing remarkable.

    Although, there was a massage chair at the far end of the lounge behind the drinks fridge but it seemed to be constantly occupied by a local that knew it was there!
