I have eaten in this restaurant while im traveling in Hanoi. It was impressed by a very various of Vietnamese cuisine. The staste was full of flavor. My favorite: Banh xeo ( Rice pancake), the beef in bamboo. Service was quickly and friendly. Surely i will come back next time.

We tried their food for two dinners - good quality - nice Hanoi fish, deep fried tofu in salted egg, Vietnamese spinach and tofu soup, rolls - both deep fried and fresh - nothing overwhelming in spices.

Decided to have lunch here... sat in a restored French house, a dining room to ourselves, good enough to draw us back that evening. We sat on the veranda and had a very enjoyable meal of soup, king prawns, duck, noodles, vegetables , 2 x G&T, hanoi beer. 1,100,000 Dong. Loved it. A little further down the street at number...

I seriously advise you to avoid this restaurant because it serves shark fin soup. Had I know this in advance, we would not have come here to eat. Unfortunately, I didn't discover this fact until too late. Shark fins are cut off of living sharks which are then tossed back into the ocean to die, and due to the harvesting... More

The location is good being quite central. The restaurant is in a restored old style French house. The menu was extensive and the food and service was good. Seemed a bit expensive in comparison to other similar venues but still it was worth the visit.

We attended this restaurant as it was across the road from our hotel and appeared to be well patronised from the street with local Vietnamese. The menu also looked interesting and seemed to offer a good variety. However, this is where our positive experience ended. When we entered there were many dirty glasses on top of the bar and a...

Served Vietnamese food in an old house. But it was a little pricey for Vietnamese standard. The food was good and so as the service.

Great food and atmosphere--a bit expensive for Hanoi, but good wine and service. Classic upscale Vietnamese.

Our guide recommended here and it was worth the visit. Initially we were on our own, but even when a couple of tour groups came in it was still quiet. A starter each was actually too much but didn't spoil the beef and pork dishes together with loads of rice and if you like garlic try the morning glory with... More
