Pleasant, quiet, delicious.

Set on a quiet side street right across from the Golden Legend Hotel where I stayed. So I ate here two nights...once in the courtyard and once upstairs in a dining room. Both experiences delicious. Be aware that they do not begin serving until 6:30pm for dinner.

On our first night in Hanoi we went to Madame Hien, which turned out to be the best restaurant, we visited during our 5 day stay in Hanoi. We had delicious food, especially the grilled fish was just superb. Service great. Can highly recommend the place.

We ate in a lovely courtyard on mosaic-covered tables. The food was superb (soft-shelled crab, followed by caramelized pork). Service was good.

Service great and attentive in charming courtyard. Food very unremarkable - cocktails rubbish and far too expensive for what they have to offer. Read other reviews and expected to be impressed. Sadly was not.

We had a separated room for seven people and we felt like in a high-end restaurant. The dishes were great. We ordered a lot of dishes and shared them altogether, as it is typical in Vietnam. Yes, the prices are higher as in many other Hanoian restaurants, but it's reasonable. Compared to dining in Europe it was still amazingly cheap!

We had a great meal in a beautiful setting on our first night in Hanoi. Everything was great, but especially spectacular was the BBQ Pork. Better have your Google Maps ready to try to find the place, but worth the visit. Excellent dinner at very reasonable prices (at least by US standards).

A lovely old colonial house, recommended to us by our guide. Certainly worth a visit. The service was excellent. We chose two of the specials and were not disappointed. There is seating indoors I and outside in a lovely courtyard area. Slightly more expensive than similar establishments but worth the extra for the quality of their dishes.

March 14, 2011 I took a private cooking class with Mai Corlou at their (Didier's) home for an entire day, but had never eaten at the restaurant named for her grandmother, and created by her husband, the amazing classically trained French chef (15 years as executive chef at the Sofitel Metropole, Hanoi). They now have 4 restaurants (Including La Verticale,... More

This restaurant knows what it's doing. The food was innovative and fresh and delicious, the service was on-spot, and the whole environment was cozy. It is the kind of place you want to stay for hours. It is in an old villa, and space is classily decorated but not over the top.
