Great value for money

This is a great place to eat set in amongst some good hotels , pubs and other restaurants, in a quiet area close to Hoan Kiem Lake.

Varied menu with something to please both the adults looking for Vietnamese food and the pickier little people in our group. Very reasonably priced and all the food was lovely. Free pudding on a Monday (creme caramel, yum!).

I have been to this restaurant several times during my stay in Hanoi and each time the service was correct, the food excelent and the price acording to the quality and service. What more can you expect?

A good spot for good value reliable food. The menu is varied so it's ideal if members of the party cannot agree on the type of food wanted. The seats outside are a great little spot for people watching and relaxing whilst you eat.

The food, being just slightly above average, is too overpriced for such a casual eating place in Hanoi.

Food was fine although not as good as some of the street food I've had whilst in Hanoi. One of the main reasons I went was because I saw they had vegetarian options (you have to ask for a separate menu to get these!). Really good mango juices as well

Feta is not feta here but cheddar so please don't expect it. Food fills you up so does the job but not one I'd run across town for. Pizza tasted more like cheese and tomato on toast lacking flavour and fell apart. But good English spoken and prices ok. Free special dessert on Mondays and Thursday but no desserts on... More

This restaurant was round the corner from our hotel and we went there all together 5 times for dinner (we spent almost 10 days in Hanoi). The food is a good mixture of western and vietnamese food, not super fancy, but a good kitchen. Everything we tried was really nice. However, what we liked best is the option to sit... More
