“french/viet cuisine in stunning setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Beautiful courtyard and interior as well. The trio of salmon as a starter was delicious...as was the steak for main. Nothing majorly special but a step up from the standard vietnamese restaurants.

“Dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

It was our last night in Hanoi, and we wanted to treat ourselves with a special night. The place is gorgeous and very well decorated. We didnt book a table, but the host got one table inside for us. We tried different starters and main courses. The food was very well presented but tasteless and cold during the whole dinner. We felt very dissapointed. This restaurant is trying to be French/Vietnamit unsucessfully. Dont waste your time and money.

“Visually stunning food, culinarily disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Cool atmosphere, beautiful courtyard with a spiral staircase leading up towards the entry, and a trendy romantic interior. The French fusion food looks incredible, but alas all of it isn't. It's not all bad...the 3 layer soup I had for an appetizer was well presented, and quite delicious. The house wine I chose for dinner was not bad at all, the dessert was beautifully done and very good, aside from that all wasn't well.

The main course I ordered was Australian filet with potato, and a side vegetable. Fantastic plating. Worth taking a picture of....what a shame it was awful. Also at western pricing equivalent to a four star restaurant...which sadly it wasn't. Considering how much they do right, atmosphere, service, accessory dishes and wine, it's extremely surprising how poor the food quality was. My girl had a more traditional dish for her entree for dinner, sadly with a similar experience.

My advice would be to stop by for lunch and have a glass of wine or a beer just to soak in the atmosphere of this place, but skip the food.....and the high price.

“Superb French Cuisine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The lamb chops and the stuffed artichokes were perfect - two of the best entrees we've ever had in a French restaurant. The dining rooms and garden of this colonial townhome were lovely. The service was excellent.

“We loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Loved the Green Tangerine. It is in a beautiful courtyard that they have refinished and it is an oasis in the center of Hanoi. The service is to notch and the food.....it is delicious. We had chicken in curry, pork ribs, beef luc lac and the pho soup. For dessert crepe caramel and mellow carmel. Every dish was better than the last and it is very reasonably priced.

For a nice meal, try it!
