Good Service & Large International Menu

The staff was very nice, and the service was great. It was a casual setting and a great location. The food was very good and they also do take away. We went there at least 4 times during our stay at the Old Quarter. Good place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Found this cafe/restaurant on a walk from our hotel, Hanoi Pearl. Seating available outside, with fans, inside and upstairs. A big choice of meals on the menu - Vietnamese or Western style meals.

Just a few minutes walk from Hoan Kiem Lake on the bend of Hang Hanh (No 37) Street this ordinary looking cafe will surprise you with the quality of the local cuisine, the beef in banana leaf was just excellent and I am sure even Raymond Blanc would be proud to serve it up as his own dish.

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. The staff are young and very friendly and the quality of the food is very good. It is very reasonably priced for both the food and drink. It is definitely worth a visit... More

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!).

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.
