The food was not ok. Firstly we ordered Tofu but was told there is no more Tofu today after few mins later. The spring roll tasted strange not like a traditional Viet style. Not fresh at all.

We had to eat in this restaurant because all guide bring you here before taking the train from Lao Cai back to Hanoi. Just a word stay away. It's busy with all the tourist and they keep you luggage while you eat, business is thriving but not the food. Service is terrible and it was the first time that I... More

We needed a quick yet satisfying meal before boarding our train back to Hanoi from Lao Cai, so, having read the previous reviews on TripAdvisor we assumed this restaurant would do the job. Unfortunately this was not the case. While we appreciated that it was rush-hour and the restaurant was clearly short staffed the quality of the service and food... More

Perfectly situated across the square from the train station, this is a great dinner spot while waiting for the evening Hanoi train. We all enjoyed pizza, and I can recommend the Hawaian. Our guide gets the credit for finding it.

We really enjoyed our vegetarian noodles, Lao Cai Beer and Vietnamese filter coffee at 'Le Bordeaux Restaurant' before catching our overnight train to Hanoi. The restaurant got very busy but we were lucky as we'd arrived early and so, missed the rush. It's just across the square from the station, so it's very handy.

We arrived in Lao Cai after our overnight train ride from Hanoi. This restaurant was across the street from the station. We stopped for breakfast before proceeding to Sa Pa. We were there at 6AM The food and coffee were good. There was a buffet available. Great place for breakfast before heading on
