We had an exquisite meal at La Badiane with friends and while the cost was relatively high for Vietnam, it was more than reasonable for the quality. The food was beautifully presented, the dishes looked more like works of art than food. Attentive staff during dinner, they spoke good English.

The food was amazing, the service was incredible and had a great wine list. We sat upstairs in the air conditioning but there is a cute little outdoor seating area.

A total respite from the hustle bustle of Hanoi. This restaurant was just as good as any Paris restaurant my husband and I have visited We went there on our second day of 18 in Vietnam. The interior is charming. The wait staff lovely. The short ribs were to die for...and the Creme Brûlée -- oh my. We were introduced... More

We picked up a card advertising this restaurant only about a block from our hotel (Mercure Hotel Hanoi La Gare) and gave it a try and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere of the place was wonderful - very romantic setting. And it was nice to have a great french meal - the menu had so many good things to choose... More

We went to Badiane twice during our holidays in Hanoi. Even though we were enjoying street local food we needed a respite after 10 days in Cambodia and Vietnam. We did dinner first, which turned out to be a very pleasant meal. Only marred by the fact we got a table in the outside court which was a bit hot... More

We learned of this restaurant from trip Advisor and our hotel vouched for its quality. We were very pleased with our three course meal - a wonderful blend of flavors. Spices and textures used especially well. My only problem was I ate too much! Would love to visit again on my next trip to Vietnam!

We chose this restaurant on the basis of tripadvisor reviews and because we wanted some European flavours on our plate that night. We weren't disappointed and came away with very full bellies. We didn't even make it to dessert! I ordered foie gras two ways and that was an absolute delight - even my husband who does not like the... More

Calm place in a busy city. Good variety of excellently cooked food which is French influenced, but always with a dash of Vietnam, bien sur.

Can vouch for the Seafood bake as one of the best meals you'll find in Vietnam. Located in the quaint interloping streets a short walk from the lake the three course lunch option is the one to go for.
