We sat at a table by the window with views to hoan kiem lake. The atmosphere was nice and quiet. The service was great. A nice waitress wanted to practice... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good Azian cuisine with an open kitchen. The view over the city,especially on the terrace, is very nice. Price is very reasonable for the quality. Booking is recommended.

Service in this restaurant is great. Always smiling, quick and efficient. They maintain the Hanoi Elegance group standards very high - as always! Their food was great, at a very good price-quality ratio and there was a wide choice of dishes! I'm a little unsure, but we ate a cod or sea bass dish wrapped in banana leaf, and it... More

Having spent the day walking around the busy, sometime chaotic, streets of the Old Town in Hanoi, it really was the perfect place to dine. We sat on the roof terrace rather than in the air con restaurant inside, as the evening temperature... More

Whilst staying at another hotel in Hanoi and being force fed set menu's at some dodgy places, we broke free and found this place (courtesy of Trip Advisor). The food here is impeccable, as is the service and all the staff. Genuinely the nicest meal I have eaten in any country for a long time. Cheap by western prices too,... More

We booked this restaurant by email a week before our trip. The hotel/ restaurant were very prompt in replying to our request. On arrival it was fairly easy to find as it is on the top floor of the Elegance Hotel in Hanoi’s Old Quarter. It was lucky we booked as ALL the tables had been pre booked for a... More
