I ran into this place by accident and decided to check it out. Even though I was by myself and couldn't play any board games the staff were kind enough to give me a table to enjoy a cup of coffee while reading.

I’ve been to quite a few board game cafes in different countries and I’ve never been charged to play a game before, until I came to The Nest. The charge isn’t a lot but it still seems pretty cheeky considering it’s a cafe and you’re buying drinks and food from there anyway. Also, the staff don’t tell you when you arrive that there is a charge for the games that you play. There was also one member of our group who didn’t want anything to drink and they got charged a “service fee”, despite not receiving any service, for almost as much as many of the drinks costs. It was also pretty loud. The staff were good at explaining things but they seemed quite preoccupied with playing their own game before they realised that we wanted serving.

Really enjoyed visiting the Nest twice while in Hanoi. Friendly staff and a wide selection of English board games. The staff clearly love games and will be playing as well. The passionfruit mojitos are excellent and easily get you over the minimum spend to play a game. Played Mr Jack though the rules were missing so we had to look them up online for reference. Also played Dominion and Broom Service which had complete sets. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a chill afternoon or evening who loves board games.

I had a great night of board games with my girlfriend in Hanoi at the Nest. This is your typical board game place, with many games, good drinks and great personel. The young man who explained the games to us had a very good english (maybe the best I've heard in all Vietnam!). So if you like board games, a good drink and having a good night of fun, this place is for you!

We popped in here after our temple-out kids (8 and 11) staged a sightseeing mutiny. It was cute, clean, cool and exactly what the doctor ordered. 90mins and a game of life later, karma had been restored and all was well with the world again!
