It was recommended to us but we were disappointed. Up stairs, inside with little atmosphere. People at next table complained that they had booked and.been promised an outside table but we're not given it. Waiters were attentive but not friendly - just going through the motions. Crackers stale. Large insect on my salad which the waitress saw and said and... More

we went there for an early dinner, our hotel advised us to book a reservation if we wanted to dine there. very nice old building, very nice service. I quite liked my food, but my family was very disappointed. My wife had tofu which she didn't like at all, my son had beef kebabs which were 80% raw inside and... More

We read the few bad reviews and were swayed to go by a great review from the LUXE guide. We have visited Hanoi several times but not for several years and were keen to try this place. Arrived, it looked great. Despite booking weeks in advance, we were told that there were no outside tables available and were shown upstairs... More

Had a dinner here with friends and enjoyed it. The food was great and the service was good. The prices are bit higher than what we were paying in most places in Hanoi however it was more of a restaurant than a street café so that is to be expected. It wasn't overpriced. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and... More

Very local kind of Vietnamese food here. Lotsa spices. Good buncha but a little oily for me. If you are a spice lover, you gonna love it here.

This restaurant came very highly recommended but perhaps it is a victim of its own success. We were put in a crowded upstairs room that had little ambience and felt very much like the objective was to simply pack in as many tourists as possible. Service was, if anything, overly efficient and impersonal. Billed as being a restaurant offering "street... More

Dear Diner, Thanks for your review. Honestly, we were very surprised at what you were talking about because if our food poison you, it should happen in 2 or 3 hours after, not until 48 hours - 2 days after. This is extremly illogical. On the other hand, we serve Vietnamese food which are not only delicious but fresh as... More

We dined here on recommendation of some guests at our hotel and were not disappointed. And although the premises are not all that impressive when you look at the menu you realise that it stands a good chance of being good and it was. The menu is large and varied with a good choice of fusion items. We opted for... More

The food of was ok, the ambience was really nice and the service was good. If you're looking to try street food but on a better setting, go there. Not worth the raving....

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, and the food was amazing. However, the service wasn't great...but I would still go again if I had the chance because it was one of my best meals in Vietnam!!

We had some good recommendations for this place, but when we arrived, we were waiting to be seated for about 20 mins. Eventually we asked one of the cooks in the courtyard if she could help us, so she called someone to come down and get us. When we were seated we were told that they take last orders for... More
