Wonderful Lunch in Rain Soaked Sapa

We enjoyed a delicious lunch here on a cool and rainy day. Staff were friendly, service was prompt and the various dishes were delicious. The cost was very reasonable and we could not have been happier.

This excellent local restaurant served wonderful vietnamese food at an unbelievably low price with terrific service. Around the corner and up the hill from the Victoria Hotel, we couldn't have been happier for this recommendation from our wonderful guide Son. We celebrated a birthday and had a great time in this unassuming spot with the terrific food.

It was a cold night in Sapa. The Red Doa house cozy ambience and friendly welcome certainly added warmth. We had a lovely and delicious dinner here. Love the stir fried squash, the garlic chicken, sizzling pork. Service was prompt. Chinese tea and dessert came Free. Highly recommended.

The restaurant has 2 floors. Most of the table are upper floor. They set the fire place at the middle of the restaurant and do the smoked meat also. The food is super. Mostly serve the local food. But do not afraid it is not too much spicy. In the spring you will see the peach blossom outside. So nice.... More

We ate here after visiting Cat Cat Village and the Cascades. The food was great and the staff was attentive, it was nice to sit and relax after walking several stairs. Overall, we enjoyed Cat Cat Village.

Great atmosphere and pretty waitresses with a good sense of humour, dressed in traditional clothing. We had the vegetable hot pot - we ordered the hot pot for one - and it was both delicious and filling and enough for both of us. Our waitress kept on checking on our pot and added more broth when we ran low. She... More

Strongly recommended and since we are only staying for one nite, we decided to go for it. Great ambience and looks really recent. Prices were reasonable but some of the meat were too tough. Some dishes were great though. For me it was pretty good but for some, it's only OK. Not many choices in Sapa so this is one... More

Four stars because this can be a superb place to have a great meal. The outdoors area, especially when bathed in sunshine, gives the place a class of its own. The staff were nice to speak with. But...alas, the grilled salmon I ordered spoilt my enjoyment. There was none of the juiciness I expected from dishing up a locally farmed... More
