I have just come there for my birthday with my friends. Base on the good reviews from tourists and local people, I choose it as the good place to have appointment. But I were very disappointed about the waiter's service attitude. When he asked us for drinks, only three of us ordered because one of my friend would like to... More

Top floor oasis above the busy street with a great view of the lake. Tables and chairs were lovely and comfy. Service was a bit spotty... Had to work hard to get attention even though my table was right near the service station. I had a rice porridge, sea bass and chicken wing dish . All were about appetizer sized... More

This restaurant over looks the lake and has outdoor seating, for a spectacular view. There are hawkers in the street, which is helpful as the entrance is hidden and somewhat unprepossessing. A lift takes you up to floor six, although there are a few steps to negotiate. The staff could not be more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The menu has... More

This restaurant had really good food and a lovely outside terrace. I had the clay pot dish and my husband had the curry. The Irish coffee and the local wine was very good. The service in Hanoi isn't the best but in this restaurant the staff were all lovely and polite because of that we ate there 3 times and... More

Enjoyed dinner here. Food was tasty and served promptly. Service a teeny bit erratic but acceptable. Slightly more expensive than average due to location. Most guests are tourists. The real star is the location overlooking the lake. Recommended

A great little coffee lounge on the 5th floor overlooking Hanoi's Old Town Lake. Great drinks, comfortable seating both inside and on a small balcony, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Immaculately clean - including the restrooms. Highly recommended for all - solo, couples, families etc.

Whilst backpacking in Vietnam, myself and 3 fellow travellers stumbled across this place whilst exploring the hectic streets of the old quarter. As it has a roof terrace restaurant (the sky garden) we thought prices would be beyond our meagre backpacker budgets so we went to the top to check out the view only. Once up there we saw the...

This restaurant has the best view of the lake at night which is stunning. The service is great and the food was delicious. More pricey than average but worth it.

The service was quick and the food was really good. Every member of staff that we dealt with was more than happy to help and did everything they could to make our evening special. Gabby was helpful and they all gave a professional and friendly experience. A great evening all round. I can't comment on 'reservations', 'outdoor seating' etc., as... More
