This restaurant has had years of great reviews and patronage from people in the know. The pictures on the wall show a bright eyed and enthousiastic couple in charge. Today the food is barely passable; currie was so salty I could barly finish it. The owner was slow to get up from his TV to take our order when we... More

The service is awful. I got yelled at by an old waitress (probably the owner's wife) for asking for Pho. It is one thing that you couldn't understand basic English for your own food; it is completely different thing to yell at your customer. Oh my goodness!!! I was so shocked that I didn't even react to it. If she... More

We were at the Rodin Museum and wanted something "not French" on the way home; voila Vietnamese at Le Lotus Blanc which had decent reviews on Fourchette. The place itself is very cute in a dive-y kind of way; you feel like perhaps you are on a movie set for a hole-in-the-wall spot in Hanoi. Liked the feel though certainly... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Le Lotus Blanc. What an interesting, cozy dining space. Check out the photographs on the wall of all of the public figure who have been clientele of the restaurant. The food was filling and delicious -- the portions were not skimpy at all compared to those served by other restaurants. The proprietress was friendly, and... More

often passed this little restaurant but never went in - but this time I was tired , in search of something light but tasty and my feet hurt so did not want to walk far from the hotel. The soup and steamed chicken, basil and coconut was delicious- light, tasty with an very gracious service ( sometimes a women alone... More

This isn't haute cuisine a la Vietnamese or Cambodian, but simply an exotic place to go for a quickly served, quickly paid lunch, in a kind of different atmosphere on a street near all the Ministries offices. Why expect more from this kind of place. It is what it is: simple, well prepared food. We didn't find it too salty... More

Stopped by this restaurant while headed to the Rodin Museum. Overall the visit was quite disappointing and we wish we had chosen one of the other nearby restaurants. While nothing was horrible the food was just okay. The only thing we would order again was a chicken soup served as a starter course. Some of the least welcoming service we... More

If you don't mind throwing your money away, then go to this place. Some of the dishes were comparable to NYC, and some were just salty; Maybe different countries have different price standards, but my impression of Vietnamese cruisine should not be this pricey unless you want the five-star atomosphere and service . This restaurant has neither. They would charge... More

The owners are from Vietnam and the cook as well but he's married to a Thai so she influences his cooking and my favorite is their Green papaya salad. The portions are small (for American standards) but the food is always good and it's a nice hole in the wall type of restaurant, don't expect stylish service or perfectly need... More
