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

We ate here for our last night in Hanoi after reading it was recommended in the Lonely Planet guide. "Street food without the street" sounded too appealing to miss out on! The courtyard we sat in was charming and the restaurant wasn't too busy. The service was nicely paced and attentive. The menu was extensive and we ordered way too... More

Half-price cocktails in happy hour was a bonus. Food was excellent (we ate there 3 times). Highly recommend the Vietnamese hotpot where you cook your own meat and seafood as you go so can pace yourself. Some awesome ice cream flavours (the curry one was sensational with a dash of chilli). A little pricey though.

It was a particularly hot evening in Hanoi so we chose to eat inside. A big table was occupied by a tour group and they were very noisy, and the atmosphere not great. However, the food made up for this. Probably the best fried spring rolls I have had in Vietnam (I lived in HCMC for a year), excellent banana... More

Been traveling around Hanoi for a week, and I must say that the food here tops it all. Rice noodles was soft and fresh, and rolls were stuffed generously with very interesting combinations of local produce. Try their Creme Caramel too... It was so delicious!!! This place is highly recommended!

This is a must-go restaurant if you are in the old quarter. Is in a little street that is not what you can call nice, but the food is totally worth it. Ask for the 5 flavours sampling of ice-cream. All are great but dear to try the black sesame and the green rice.

We came to the restaurant because one of our workmate said that over the tripadvisor, the restaurant got 4 stars, so we decided to come over and try. That is a great old France style building, and they decorate it very delightful. But all the prices of the food are "awesome expensive". The foods were nice but not worthy for... More
