“Perfect for when you are dining alone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

The food was fabulous and the staff are caring and attentive. I had a wonderful prawn and ginger soup followed by crab and asparagus salad. All delicious. I would certainly come here again.

“Superb food and setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We had lunch here during our stay in Hanoi and were extremely impressed with the delicious risotto we were served. It was unusally presented in a wafer type basket but the risotto rice was just al dente, the crab meat was plentiful in each bite, the asparagus was tender yet still delightfully crisp and the mix of flavours was divine.
We will be back to visit when next in Hanoi.

“Tony Fraser”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

What a wonderful food experience , we sat upstairs in the air con area as per trip advice , more ambience down though if you can hack the heat , Head chef came and saw us twice , this place is made for people who want the very best and pay a tenth for it . My 20 year daughter said its the best food shes ever had , just wish it was a franchise so that I could enjoy back home , truely a gem of a restuarant and way ahead of any other Hanoi eatery , get lucky and satisfy yourself I say

“Best restaurant in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We live in Hanoi and have never been disappointed at la Badiane. It is simply the best place to have a nice meal. The owner and chief is often working and proactively oversees everything, from the quality of food, service and personally greets and seeks feedback from clients at least once during the meal. The menu offers about 5 or so items on each of the appetizers, main courses and desserts. They specialize and excel at what they offer. They have a nice selection of fish, beef, lamb and vegetarian -- exquisitly prepared amd matched with sauces and vegetables. Not heavy but delightfully satisfying. they also have a good wine selection and the prices are very reasonable.

“Great service and thoughtfully prepared, delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Had dinner here for a birthday celebration and it was a great choice. It's in an interesting neighborhood worth exploring a little afterwards. Had a wonderful steak that was perfectly prepared and delicious. A nice wine selection too. I had a rich chocolate dessert that was just the right size. Try to sit upstairs in the enclosed room that has AC, otherwise the downstairs section exposes you to the elements, which can be quite warm.
