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

I made a birthday party reservation for our group with decoration package. When we showed up, there was no decoration beside a "Reserved" sign on the tables. The AC did not work; the staff did not mentioned anything about this or give us the stay or go option. There were a few fans running but they were not enough for... More

Had been told this was the place to be. Group of us who had recently met had a great time and really good drinks . Didnt have the food as were eating at restaurant downstairs. Worth it for the view.

A big place, located opposite Hoan Kiem lake. The open space gives the guess a lot of freedom. The rooftop coffee are also very interesting. What's best is the atmosphere, quiet and no rushing around. Good place, good price.

I sat at one of two tables outside with a wonderful view of the lake and all of the evening buzz on the streets. My server was attentive, and carefully described items on the menu to help me make a good selection. The food and mango margarita were great, and although a little more expensive than street food, still an... More

We went for dinner, to observe the panoramic view of the city at night. Terrace offers a nice view of the lake, food was average (a mix of Vietnamese and Western dishes), not too pricy, but not very tasty either. Service was a bit slow, but we have enjoyed the atmosphere and the view.
