Worth finding on a lakeside crowded with bars and restaurants

No doubt there are many decent places in this busy lakeside area but one of our group had eaten here before and it was worth finding it again. The duck with orange sauce was simple but excellent and the crab spring rolls were a good generous starter. Service was good and the view across the lake... read more

Good Vietnamese food in busy, scenic Houhai area. Clean, upscale space. Everyone is friendly and the food is very good. Recommend for lunch.

Food is missing on taste and abundant on fat. Mango smoothie is mainly ice. I already finished my meal, while my friend is still waiting for his. The prices are high, Tsintao is 30y, wines are around 50y/glass. Most foods are around 70. The warning sign was a 15% service charge stated in the menu, which is a telltale for... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, accompanied by Beijing residents who, although not Chinese, speak Chinese very well (so we don't know if a non-Chinese speaker would have difficulty). We climbed all the way to the roof to get a seat, with a wonderful view of this vibrant neighborhood. The food was very good, as was the service. We enjoyed... More

Nothing fancy here, but the chefs specials were very tasty and easy to order as menu is in English! I would definitely have the vegetable spring rolls again. No waiting for a table, but seats by the window would have given a lovely view over the lake! A bit more expensive than the surrounding venues, and service was a bit... More

This Vietnam restaurant is located in a lovely area, near by a street full of traditional Chinese magazines. They serve a big variety of options but the food is greasy, the appearance is not good and taste is not delicious. The waiters do not speak English so communication is not easy. I ate in better restaurants in China

While visiting houhai we looked for a place to eat and were recommended this place for its chandong cuisine by a local guide. We had about 10 dishes, most of them unique to the chandong province, and enjoyed every single one. One more dish was a more modern interpretation on the famous duck and was exquisite.

Tip: Climb the stairs and occupy a window seat overlooking the lake. Situated in an area where one can easily spend an hour or two window browsing the many shops, this is one restaurant that will score top marks with its viewing vantage. I was there on a late afternoon one Saturday in Dec and ordered the beef pho -... More

Surrounded by loads of bars and rather shabby restaurants this looks nothing from the outside but in side is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, tastefully decorated. Lakeside experience. You can sit in a rickshaw chair. Extensive menu in English and Chinese. We had mixed spring rolls (nothing like UK version), lemon grass chicken (hot!), lamb, noodles, and aubegine. Excellent and plentiful.... More

What an experience for a family lunch! Service is terrible, if you are foreigner, you have to expect to wait a long, long time before being served. The food is average. You can find much better in Beijing for a Vietnamese restaurant. Moreover, we can guess that it is as Vietnamese as Chinese restaurants are Chinese in France (no Vietnamese... More
