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

After four days travelling the North West roads of Vietnam, our small tour group was taken to lunch at the Red Dau Restaurant in SaPa. 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.

The Red Dao is set back from the street, fronted by a tree-lined patio so it looks like a house with a hint of a Japanese design. Inside it's warmly lit with a very comfortable, hospitable atmosphere. The service staff are friendly. Our party of three ordered different hot pots with a bottle of wine and we had a very... More
