Verandah On Racecourse


Verandah on Racecourse feels much like a corner of Saigon in Ascot with its wide, timber deck, plenty of greenery and all the flavours of Vietnam.

Along the benches, there are comfy cushions to induce a relaxing morning sipping Fonzie Abbott coffee or traditional Vietnamese iced coffee served with condensed milk.
