We stayed at the Essence Hotel for over a week so had many meals in this restaurant. Overall, the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff are welcoming and the food is great. There were only a few things that I could pick on. The majority of the food was delicious, there was only a few dishes that weren't amazing compared to some other restaurants in Hanoi (for example, the fresh spring rolls I found quite dry compared to other places).
