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

We stopped for a mid-afternoon snack of cold rolls etc which were very nice - we had only arrived in Hanoi just after midday and were in the midst of doing a little shopping. We made a booking to return here for dinner in the evening which turned out to be very busy for them. We both ordered 3 ways... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Hanoi and enjoyed it both times. It was in walking distance from our hotel and offered a range of Vietnamese food.

Great food. Option of French or Vietnamese. Really good service and option to sit inside or outside. The green tea cake is recommended (but takes 20 minutes as it's made fresh). Four of us had three courses and a couple of beers each for a grand total of 60 GBP.

We ate here twice in Hanoi - the first time we sat outside in the beautiful courtyard and the second time upstairs ... which was a little hot the night we were there. The food was delicious, not our best in Vietnam overall but a great introduction to the local cuisine. Service was a bit hit and miss.
