For some reason, this place shows up if one searches for vegetarian restaurants in Hanoi. The food is probably great here. But take a look at the menu . . . dead animals as far as the eye can see. If you eat meat, ignore this review, and read what other carnivores have said in their own reviews--their takes on... More

Three of us had a very nice meal at La Badiene. My beef filet was superb; I have never had better, even though I grew up with grand steaks in the American Midwest. One of our companions also had a filet and liked it. I did not especially enjoy my poached egg with cauliflower cream appetizer. Its ambition exceeded its... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to have a special dinner at the end of our 3-week tour of Vietnam. We were not deluded by what we found at La Badiane. Set in a colonial villa, the restaurant offers a mix of Vietnamese and French cuisine. We had some wonderful red tuna, sesame prawns and duck breast - alongside good French... More

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.
