Worth a visit

We had dinner at Madame Hien twice during our stay in Hanoi. We went there in the first place for the patio, as the weather was not that much sticky. The food is good, based on Vietnamese cuisine with a French twist. The only "but" is the price, a bit overpriced for Hanoi.

We had dinner here on our last night in Hanoi and it was great. The selection on the menu was fantastic and I ate the pork and mushroom omelet as a starter, which was one of my favourite meals on the entire Vietnam trip! The staff were very attentive and it was a lovely outdoor setting (fans kept it nice... More

In a small street in "backpacker central" area of Hanoi's Old Quarter, this is a pleasant restaurant offering Vietnamese food. With a little money spent on refurbishment and adding some colours and fabrics, this rather run-down old building could be turned into something special. The outside terrace and garden are much nicer than the rather boring interior decor. Menu is... More

Setting is an old colonial house I think. Choice of eating outdoors or indoors with a/c. Good food with a good choice. I recommend the mixed "tapas" starter, particularly tasty. The experience was let down by poor service of drinks. It took 3 reminders and 10 minutes to get a second beer....then 15 minutes and another 3 reminders to get... More

This gem of a restaurant was recommended by a Hanoi expat. We had a quiet table in the garden and enjoyed a fabulous dinner blending local dishes with European/ French origins. The service was friendly and unhurried and timed the delivery of the food just right. I enjoyed a Hanoi set menu which included a lot of food. My partner... More

We had dinner here with a big group of ten of us. Very friendly place, lots of westerners which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your point of view. Food was great, we all really enjoyed it. Quite a big wine list which was nice. Good service and very nice atmosphere. We would defInitely return.
