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.

The quality of food is very high. During the lunch the restaurant provide special menu. As for me it is one of the best restaurants in Vietnam. The staff knows English and French. Do not forget to try Vietnamese coffee.

It was Friday and I was ready for some distraction. After searching for another restaurant which does not exist anymore, on the back of a scooter, I ended up at 'Madame Hien' and liked it from the first second. As I like outdoors, and this one is particularly pretty, I occupied one of the small round tables in the courtyard.... More

Very good food customised for western people. It is a little pricy. The building is beautiful with different kind of decoration depending on the rooms.

I had hot pot for 1. The presentation was beautiful and I have to say this restaurant lives up to its name for being one of the top notch restaurants in Hanoi. Service was impeccable and the food was simply divine. Total bill came up to slightly less than $50 for 2 (included 2 glasses of red). I will definitely... More

Great food. Some traditional Vietnamese, some western and some fusion foods. Try the platters that give samples of a number of dishes. The good portions are fairly small but the good is deceivingly rich and so you won't walk away hungry. But it is a pricey by Hanoi standards. As a guide, 3 courses for Two adults and two children...

Loved how an old building, house is converted into a modern setting of great food and dining experience. Food & beverage served was one of the best meals we had in Hanoi during our stay and highly recommend Madame Hien's for an authentic experience. Might be a little tough to locate the place, but well worth the calories burnt looking... More

Arrived Hanoi on 31st Dec and hotel made this suggestion for special occasion. We 'pushed the boat out' with set 8 course meal, which although (at 38GBP!) was expensive for Hanoi, was worth every penny. The mix of classic french and traditional vietnamese cuisine and service combined to create one of the best dining experiences. A must do when in... More
