Highly recommend this eatery

My teen daughter and I had the best French Vietnamese food here - it's tiny, informal and the owners are wonderful - the food was amazing - we highly recommend it. We ordered basil tofu, garlic fried rice, ginger chicken, and fried vegetable noodles. I will be going back! This is an easy walk front... read more

This is clearly no longer a vietnamese restaurant but the new Chinese owners still keep on the walls the photos of the previous Vietnamese chef/owner with the many famous politicians and celebrities. The portions are small and the dishes are fake Chinese creations - dishes that I have never see/eaten before in an authentic Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant. Classic Vietnamese... More

One of the few restaurants available in this neighbourhood if you want to change from the italian down the street. The food was ok but we waited for an hour and saw people that came after our group getting served before us. The portions were ridiculous for the price we paid although of good quality. Will definitely not go there... More

We thought it was going to be a cheap poh hole in wall. No, there were too many well to do French locals. No pho. Appetizers of Papaya salad and fried dumplings were good, but our 3 entrees were small portions. Noodles were greasy. Lemon chicken tasted slimy. Beef was idk...65 EUR for lunch. This review won't hurt the business... More

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

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

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
