Good place for German-culture digger

Nice place with quick access to german culture. It is LGBT-friendly also. I've never been to the restaurant before so I can't tell, but they sell delicious Doner kebab at the door.

The garden is really nice and quite. Lovely to spent some hours in Hanoi. The menu was lovely to see and we were happy when we read that the kitchen is flexible for wishes and they can offer a few vegetarian meals. So we asked the staff what she can offer. She offered us spring roll and salad. That's it.... More

Before I came here, I really anticipate to eat real german food. In conclusion, it was worst choice. I ordered Wienerschnitzel which I used to eat in Germany, but it was absolutely poor. So oily and portion was so small. Even worse thing was bad taste. What made me so pissed off more was how staff served. Some staff seems... More

I've only been to Goethe Institut for their restaurant and art exhibitions. Their food taste almost the same as the food that I had when I visited Europe. I recommend the courtyard since it has nice ambiance. Goethe Institut usually host art exhibitions and they have quite a good taste.

A nice courtyard to sit when it is not too hot or raining and some decent german food if you choose well.

Very good authentic German food (also Vietnamese dishes). If going at lunch time try to get there before noon as it does fill up quickly. Prices are medium.

A true oasis of both information and quiet in a bustling city. A great place for lunch (wonderful menus) and to catch up with friends. Near the Temple of Literature and the National Gallery, this is an ideal place to stop off for a break, either a coffee or lunch. Also, a great place to find out what cultural exchanges... More
