Our hotel receptionist recommended this place as somewhere that did good roast duck, and she was definitely right! The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the food was well priced and delicious. Both set menus were great, one with meat and one veggie.

They had good variety of food on the menu. But it was just not as tasty and fresh as some of the other restaurants in Hanoi where we ate similar dishes.

Spent 14 nights in Vietnam and ate out every night. I would rate the food here in the top 5 of places we ate at and when price taken into account top 3. Did not get the chance but would definitely go back. Don,t judge by appearance. It is a cafe not what I would call a restaurant but this... More

Decided to have dinner at this place after reading the good reviews but was let down by the below average food. Staff was OK and premises clean. We ordered the aubergine which was basically drenched in soya sauce. The rest of the food had a sweetish taste which wasn't too our taste.

I've enjoyed four meals here in four days. No complaints from me. Very good English spoken here means you get what you order. Haven't been here for breakfast. I'm a happy customer who'll be back for more!

I ate here a few times during a recent trip to Hanoi. I really enjoyed the food and the waitress spoke excellent English, which was very helpful, as being a vegetarian can be a bit of a challenge at times in Hanoi, and she was able to assure me that the foods that I chose were suitable.

What can I say.... We found this restaurant in the beginning of our 6 night stay in Hanoi. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who could speak good English and treated us like old friends. Pricing is fantastic and the food tasted amazing. We didn't have to wait long either for meals to come out. Having been to... More
