Mad Cow Wine & Grill

Don’t be frightened off by the name, because this Mad Cow is nothing like what you’re probably thinking. Mad Cow Wine & Grill is located on the 30th floor of the Pullman Saigon Centre; a self-proclaimed combination of edgy grill with the casual tone of an urban wine bar. Its motto is Mad about Wine, Serious about Food.
