6 of us ate at this restaurant on a whim by walking past and all 6 mains were absolutely dire. I ordered a thai curry, which resembled nothing of the sort and was the smallest portion ever, with only 3 bits of fatty chicken. It was watery and was the blandest meal I've ever had. Everyone else's meal in the... More

The food itself was ok but nothing special, a bit overpriced and small portions to be honest. However, the view from the rooftop was nice, probably could have had a few more fans up there though.

We visited here after reading reviews of the great views from the balcony. It was super hot so we thought we'd sit inside.........wrong! The smokers were inside thereby forcing us out onto the balcony. Fabulous view for sure but service was slow - very slow. I think they must have gone down 5 floors to fill our order of 2... More

We recently had a wonderful, tasty, and relaxing dinner here. The staff was very friendly and professional. The vietnamese food we ordered was great! We got a table on the balcony and had a stunning view of the city. After sunset, the atmosphere became magical with strings of lights overhead and lanterns on the tables. It is a casual, loungy...

we went here with a tour group and it was a great choice. a splendid view at night and the food was good too. a bit of a hike up the stairs as the lift would only take three people due to a faulty setting. close to the water puppet theatre and lake

Another place in Hanoi that you won't regret. It's a small lounge on the top floor. It was only 15$ for 2 dishes of food, 2 beers, and 1 mineral water. Food was great, lovely staff, nice view.

We got amazed by how nice everybody is in Hanoi and this restaurant is no exception. Food is gorgeous and the view is probably the best in town. Not the cheapest but for the quality and service it's a bargain. Totally recommended!
