Food, drinks and service were excellent and inexpensive. We were ushered in and were a bit wary going upstairs but very glad we did. The view is amazing, you could sit there all day watching the traffic and the lake

The food and view are the highlights of this place. It's definitely a lounge for people to hangout drink and smoke for awhile, so if cigarette smoke bothers you- definitely do not go here. We got the Bun Cha, the Bahn Tom and the Com Ga - all were great. We also ordered the strawberry mojito which was on the... More

Book a table in the sky garden on 7th floor - it's amazing to have dinner with such a view! Also if you need a really good cafe latte, you should go here, they make it with fresh milk.

We saw the menu outside the restaurant. They have both western and Vietnamese food. Not to many choices of vegetarian. I at a pizza with veggies. It was alright though. Other dishes looked good. Although the restaurant was in a hotel the food was very cheap. The view from the rooftop of the restaurant is amazing. You can see the... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident, and after bein shown the menu by two friendly girls outside, we were escorted up to the restuarant in the lift and after we were asked whether we wanted a table inside or outside, we were promptly shown to our chosen table outside with magnificent views over the lake. I went for the... More

Being a part of a tour group, finding places to eat in Vietnam that can accommodate large groups is quite a feat. Luckily, one of our tour mates had stumbled along this cafe/restaurant and suggested we do our final dinner there. I am so glad that she did because it was an absolutely lovely experience. The food is good, but... More

Good selection on food. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Theres a great view from the restaurant (theres a few different floors). We actually ended up eating here 3 times, once for lunch, once for dinner, and then again for dinner when we arrived back to Hanoi when beginning our journey home. The food and drinks are a bit more... More
