Chose it based on strength of previous reviews and faith was justified. Welcome and service throughout was charming, knowledgeable and efficient. Between us, tried chicken pho and beef pho. Both were light and tasty with plenty of moist chicken and grilled beef respectively. Taste was adjustable via lime and chillies. We had a shrimp and pork rice pancake served in... More

Overall great food,a bit pricey, but still.Especially the bun cha( seasoned pork in broth) was even better than from the street. Desserts nice ,propably one of the few places where you can find decent chocolate cake in hanoi.

My fiancé and I had read the other positive reviews so thought we would give this restaurant a go, we were not disappointed. The menu was a nice mix of Vietnamese, west and European cuisine. After a week of local food I particularly enjoyed the beef carpaccio the scallops (which we shared as entrees) and the fillet steak which were... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Hotel. It was our first night in Hanoi so hadn't made a reservation. The restaurant was fully booked but quickly set up a table for us outside where we had a great view of the city. This was our first introduction to Pho soup and definitely the best we have eaten to date.... More

We dined in style on our last night in Hanoi. Wonderful food, beautiful outlook and yummy wine :) Waiter made great recommendation for main, suggesting alternative to my choice based on my desire for strong flavours. Entree of rice pancake and spring rolls was a wonderfully flavoursome start. Crumbed beef and sea bass for main a tasty divine choice. Highly... More

Okay this restaurant has the best service and food quality. The french chief comes to you to order, and for the first time the chief stops us from ordering a dessert because we already ordered too much starters and main courses. Its the first time for me to see staff looking that much for clients satisfaction. Must eat there..

Great atmosphere; exceptional service; tasty food and a varied menu. It is a bit more expensive than some others, but you pay for the view and the great ambiance. Highly recommend.
