“Tasty Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We were recommended to go to "the Pineapple", when we entered, we were a little reluctant, well no need. This restaurant had the tastiest food and the presentation was an added extra. The pineapple fried squid was absolutely amazing, so amazing we went back another 2 times during our stay. Not the cheapest place in town but considering the taste and presentation, I think it was still a very reasonable priced meal.

“Takeaway service-wrong items given and tiny overpriced portions”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Went here for a takeaway when very hungover. Ordered a beef fried rice and chicken dish withrrice. This was 177000 which is extremely overpriced in comparison to all nearby eateries. When we got the food back we saw a different type of chicken dish which was about 6 small bits of slimey chicken with no rice. The beef rice was very dry beef cubes and slightly flavoured rice. We can't comment on atmosphere but the restaurant was empty when we visited
Portions were small and although friendly enough the waitress didn't understand us...hence why we must have got the wrong dish
Would not go back

“Tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A small quaint restaurant in the middle of Hanoi, it was recommended to us by our hotel reception. We had a Mango salad, prawn pancakes and the best dish: Cha Ca fish wrapped in rice wraps and condiments. Very tasty!
Washed it down with a couple of Hanoi beers. A very nice evening. Not to expensive either.

“Not recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Went for lunch to this restaurant and was disappointed. Couldn't eat the noodles with chicken and vegetables - it took a long time for the food to arrive and then didnt taste good. It was the worst meal that I had in Vietnam.

“Attentive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

This is a lovely restaurant and I had some good spring rolls and the honey chicken was really good, however it does seems too pricy for what it is and they added an unexpected 5% VAT on the bill.

The staff are very attentive and the menu is fairly extensive. So if you've got a few extra dong, then maybe worth a visit.
