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

On a busy business day, I was invited by a local client to this restaurant. We had our own private dining room for the 6 of us. The reastaurant is located in the heart of the city but away from the hustle of the busy roads. Once you walk in the restaurant, the place gives a very cosy feeling due... More

During an afternoon stroll in Hanoi, we discovered a unique gem in Hanoi dining which is named after the original name of Vietnam, Au Lac House. The building is a beautiful garden house built during the French colonial period, however; the decor features photography, artwork and vases of authentic Vietnam. The cuisine is uniquely Vietnamese and probably one of the... 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
