What a wonderful little spot close to our hotel! Nice staff, great food always freshly cooked and served piping hot. We ended up going there several times because it was so good. But you better like Johnny Cash music, that's what they play!

This 'chain' (?trio) of restaurants in Hanoi serves simple but delicious Vietnamese and Western meals at a reasonable price, in a nice, quiet 'Western cafe'-style atmosphere. A bit of an oasis from the busy Hanoi streets.

Get a Pho Cocktail, you will not regret it! You'll see this recommendation on the table reviews left on currency and notes by other travellers. It's the craziest cocktail I've ever seen made. The food here was good too, great portions and polite service. The menu is enormous and offers a range of traditional Vietnamese food and A LOT of... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel. While walking through Old Quarter we realized that it's a chain of restaurants. The one next to our hotel was completely empty so ended up in another branch close by that seemed quite busy. The ambiance was nice and food was pretty good, especially the chicken breast special. The service was a... More

A side note: You'll get good services if you're a Westerner. Seriously, my friend (who is a Vietnamese) came here first, and he waited nearly forever (nearly 45 mins) for some spring rolls and a pizza. While I came in, we repeated the order again, and surprisingly, the food came out after 10 mins - and it's quite good. Honestly,... More

This restaurant has a really cozy ambience; perfect lighting, background music with a vintage feel decoration. I must say a lot of thought was put into this, they did a really good job. Now, their food is absolutely flavorful, succulent meats, luscious mocktails etc... and for the amount they charge it is incredibly resonable. Not forgetting their service is great,... More

We checked out two of these joints in Hanoi, both had a nice atmosphere and one had great music. The sandwich we enjoyed at one was just ok. The beer prices were great for the area.
