“Delicious food, average service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

We went there following the good reviews.

Beverages:
Prices are too high (49k for a beer) for Vietnam.

Food:
We had noodles with prawns and fried rice madame hien style. Both were really large portions and were delicious. Prices were relatively high but you get a good value for money.

Service:
Compared to other places in Vietnam, the service was very slow. Also, they forgot to add the typical sweet milk to our Vietnamese coffee. Our waitress did not speak a very good English, so we always had the impression that she did not really understood us despite saying 'ok' to everything we told her.

“Nice place but food was average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Looking for higher end restaurant in Hanoi... we came across Madame Hien... the place is beatiful and service is great... but for the additional cost, we didnt think the food was that great.

“Fantastic Food, Old Quarter, Hoan Kiem District Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Madam Hiên restaurant is set in a beautiful old villa, within a lovely shady courtyard. At first afraid that the prices would be high we balked at coming in but we are delighted to say that the food and drinks here are not expensive there at all; also the size of the dishes is also very generous, in fact much bigger than other restaurants that we ate at.

Summery

Food: Excellent 10/10
Quality: Excellent
Cuisine: Traditional Vietnamese and French
Servings: Generous
Drinks: Great selection at a very reasonable price
Service: Excellent
Ambiance: Relaxing and attractive
Location: Close to Cathedral

Recommendations:

Madam Hiên Cocktail

Madam Hiên, half- baked chocolate cake. Be warned...this desert is absolutely orgasmic so there no knowing what may occur at the table!!

Eggplant and minced pork
