"When you are in Sapa, you must eat at the Red Dao Restaurant" - our guide from Hanoi told us. So here we were at the Red Dao Restaurant for dinner on our first night in Sapa. The menu had a good variety of both local and western cuisine. Not wanting to crack our heads over what to order, we... More

We had the best deep fried vegetarian spring rolls ever. Excellent value for money for Food and Drinks. Margaritas $3.75 AUD and good french wine at $28 AUD.

My family had lunch here after a long morning discovering and climbing the Love Waterfall and Silver Waterfall. Really love this place, where the ambience was so nice and I did not feel the crowdedness as in few other good restaurants around Sapa (this was exactly what we want for our meals). The restaurant was clean and the service was... More

We were assigned to come here with our customized packaged. While we got there late, we were served about 8 dishes including dessert. The food was excellent and so authentic. And honestly, the portions were really generous!

My friend Micaella and I ate at Red Dao during our stay in Sapa and loved it. We actually ended up eating there twice because we liked it so much. It serves a variety of authentic Vietnamese dishes as well as Western options. The first time we had the Red Dau soup (pumpkin, potato, onion) and fresh spring rolls. The... More

We went to Red Dao with a tour group, there were 14 of us, the atmosphere is really lovely, great food, and the service was also good. The price was not too bad, a little more than you'd expect to pay but it was worth it. Relaxing place to escape from the Tribe people who follow you around in Sapa... More

I guess we were used to great fresh tasty and cheap food so this place seemed overpriced. The food was very nice and was great to try some local Sapa food. We had really good service and sat in the garden to eat. Very pretty place with the local Red Dao serving us.
