This charming French/Vietnamese restaurant serves fantastic food in a very nice old style French house. The menu is quite good, in particular I think the papaya salad is the best that I have tried in Hanoi. The service could be a little better however nothing to complain about. Great experience, highly recommended.

I finally made it Madame Hien with a friend on Saturday night for dinner. It was very hot, so we opted to dine indoors. The menu is great with many options of fusion food as well as set menus. The set menu starts from VND 410 which us a good value and you get gourmet course including desert. The food... More

This restaurant has the most over rated food and I am surprised that it is even rated as highly as it is on Trip Advisor...guess that is because it is owned by the executive Chef at the Metrapole. A Shame he is not concentrating on the flavours in this restaurants food. The food definitely did not even begin to tickle... More

Great menu with a mix of French / Vietnamese fusion food. The fruit juices were fabulous, and the lemongrass foie gras to die for. Great little terrace, a perfect lunch getaway. Really enjoyed it even if they forgot my dish, there was enough to share with my 3 other guests.

Was recommended to us by our tour guide. A decent looking place but could us a lot if work and could be a bit cleaner. All other customers were tourists or expats. Ordered the duck 3 ways and was disappointed. The fried rice was really good though. Wasn't impressed with the service. That staff were good but some what unprofessional... More

We liked the set lunch which were beautifully plated - the green tea cake and ice cream was excellent. The bun cha (BBQ pork) was good too. Service was very efficient and friendly. Charming ambience and location

We ate here our first night in Vietnam based upon our hotels recommendation (which happened to be right down the street). Looking back over the whole trip I think it was the best restaurant meal that we had in Vietnam. (with my daughter allergic to all seafood and not speaking Vietnamese we couldn't chance eating at the street stalls) I... More

We were so looking forward to our visit to this restaurant but it didn't live up to expectations. Our waitress was a sweet girl but when we asked for a wine recommendation she said she knew nothing about wine. Lovely setting quite relaxed and peaceful but the food was ordinary none of the great flavours we were expecting. Wouldn't waste... More

Madame Hien in a calm side street in the heart of Hanoi with a romantic garden and carefully equipped rooms in the colonial building lets best Vietnamese and French cuisine find together and offers a large choice of beautifully presented and obligingly served tasty meals and well selected wines
