This is a charming restaurant conveniently in the Old Quarter. The Food is excellent. My daughter and I went for lunch and then my business colleagues chose it for a group dinner! Especially good were the pomelo salad with prawns, the tofu, the caramelized pork, the seafood soup. Very nice service and an interesting history.

We ordered three of the appetizers and every one of them was delicious. The presentation was beautiful and the ambiance in the outside court yard was very nice. The clientele seemed to be from Europe, North America, New Zealand and Australia. When we asked our hotel staff why the locals don't go there, we were told that it is too... More

We had diner at Madame Hien because we loved the menu and the location. We wanted to try it. Nice staff, very pleasant. Wine in a glass choice is very poor and some choices not available (so we could choose btween 4 different ones). Starters were quite nice even if not exceptionnal. I ordered a special veggie but was served... More

Really enjoyed eating in the courtyard of this historic house. The food was generally pretty good, although I thought their signature mango spring rolls were too sweet and almost entirely mango. Skip those and opt for other options. Good beer and wine options.

Best restaurant in whole Vietnam (at least for us). Try their Foie gras Pho. Amazing. Any fresh spring rolls they offer are amazing. You should stay outside, even though the colonial interior of the house looked nice as well. Nice service too. Close a little early but then again like all places in Vietnam :)
