If you ever find yourself in Sapa here's a place to visit, service was great food was excellent, not too sure I liked the milkshake that much, I had pork cooked in caramel sauce which was really divine!

The Red Dao was recommended to us by our guide and we were not disappointed. The food was very authentic and delicious, the decor superb and service outstanding. We arrived early with the intention of having a quick drink to check out the menu but stayed and didn't leave until late. Highly recommend a visit, you won’t be let down

We went to the Red Dau House for lunch as part of our tour. The entrance looked interesting but that is where the enjoyment ended. We waited and waited to be served. They knew we were coming as our guide would have booked for us. There were large tables being attended to. A group of Japanese people came in and... More

The restaurant was an excellent first impression of the city, with classy decor, great rest rooms and first class, friendly service from the staff who spoke English very well. Then the food and drinks arrived... More

Three of us shared hot pot and various other excellent dishes. Ingredients were fresh and each dish was very good. It has a broad menu and we saw both locals and tourists. The old dining room provided a glimpse of old school construction -- a time when beautiful hardwoods were used throughout the restaurant.

Very fresh food and very clean restaurant. Bathroom was clean and hand basin. The food came in stages which was appreciated as in most cases it does come all at once and can be a bot overwhelming.

No bottled water? We were looking forward to the duck dishes but found them all very tough and chewy. Service was tough around larger tour groups. Go to a smaller place.
