“Nice atmosphere, poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Nice place to chill out and nice roof terrace. I would not recommend ordering food, the oatmeal was uncooked and my friends sandwich/chips had gone cold. Service was slow. I think it is a better place for just a drink.

“Little oasis from busy old quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We found this little gem by accident but were so glad we did! There isn't much signage on the road, so its hard to find if you were deliberately searching for it.
Upstairs, there is a beautiful little garden/terrace bar with lots of separate spots to sit and enjoy a drink or snack. Prices were very reasonable and service was excellent. Lovely relaxing jazz music plays in the background
I liked that the staff were efficient and helpful, but didn't keep hassling us. They just left us alone and when we wanted another drink they were never far away.
We visited Hanoi in winter, so it was a little cold outside, so make sure you have a jacket.

“Lovely and interesting bar/cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We had some drinks and snacks at Nola and it was really lovely. Food and drinks were well priced and well made (including cocktails). Our crinkle cut fries were fresh, crunchy, and delivered promptly. The setting is really special and perfect to visit for a pre-dinner drink - at that time of night the rooftops are very pretty.
