Delightful Meal and Setting - A good choice and value

Had lunch with a colleague over business discussions. The converted colonial house setting is terrific. If you can score a seat on the balcony, it adds to the experience. The menu has many choices but not so many to confuse. I ordered spring rolls which were served in a manner that i could... read more

A warm semihumid evening and a late dinner at the Au Lac House. The staff was welcoming and the service prompt, but not hurried. Then there was The Food. A friend dining with me selected the dishes including a salad, fish, meat etc. The variety was good with a blend of flavors, textures and aromas. We dined on the balcony... More

Nick Boulos recommended Au Lac in an article entitled 48 Hours in Hanoi and we were so pleased he did. Although we had a range of street food during our stay this place was SO different and totally unexpected. Set in an old colonial style mansion at 13 Tran Dung Dao four of us eat there on our last night... More

This restaurant was pre-booked for us by our travel agent as part of a tour for the day so we did not know what to expect. Our tour guide took us down and we were instantly surprised, the place looks amazing. We were taken upstairs and seated on the balcony. As it was pre-booked we had a set menu provided... More

Negative: First they walked is up stairs and then out on to their balcony. In my head, i was thinking oh this is nice.... More

The staff were very friendly with good English and even some french. A menu to please anyone and it certainly did. We had an amazing assortment including... More

What a great place with fantastic food. We were a group of at least 10. They broke us into smaller groups sitting outside on the balcony. The food was delicious. The menu was quite varied with numerous choices. The staff was helpful and served our meals quite rapidly. Cool building!

this appeared to be a very popular restaurant. The food was very good. The atmosphere is what makes the place. You go there for fun with friends, not so much for the food.
