My husband I were staying at the hotel right above this diner, and as soon as we laid eyes on this restaurant, we knew we were going to eat here. You are asked how cooked you want your burger which is great because I sometimes forget to mention this. The burgers were delicious, the milkshakes were tasty and had a nice consistency. The service was okay, wait times good and the decor is fancy. It was a little too quiet but there was probably little that could be done about that during times like this. We ate here twice in the 4 days that we were in Hanoi because the food was delicious and we wanted to try other things on the menu. Worth visiting!

A taste of home for sure!!! Delicious classic American favorites all in one place. The decor and atmosphere is exactly like a true American diner and the food is delicious! Anything you order is excellent; only thing that I haven’t really liked myself was the waffle (just wasn’t the best but its ok). Overall a wonderful place when ur craving some tastes of home!! Prices are decent for the quality and portions as well. The fried shrimp salad and/or any of the salads are delicious (it’s hard to find perfect salads here but at S&L they are perfect!) The veggie burger is hands down the best in Hanoi also!! Which satisfies vegan needs and even if your not vegan it’s delicious! They have rootbeer floats (An American classic) especially good on a hot day too!! Staff is wonderful, attentive and kitchen cooks things perfectly! Follow @travelingypsey on Instagram & GoogleMaps!

I went the first time with friends and really enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious, reminded me of food back in the US, Minh the waiter spoke great English and was very accommodating. We sat on the second floor, second table from the window on the right and had a great view of everything outside and in. When I returned with my wife, we got the same table - lucky, I guess. The prices were quite reasonable, delicious food, friendly staff and the atmosphere kind of reminded me of the American chain Steak & Shake. I just got off the phone with a friend from South Africa, I'm sharing it with him after Tet.

If you have been here a long time and are a bit home this solves that problem. After eating everything you can possibly imagine of the amazing local cuisine, sometimes you need a taste of home. They added a Mexican style mini menu as well! Their lunch special cost around $7.50 US or 180,000 Dong. Very fair! Salad, Burger,fries, and a drink are included. I have eaten here many times in the past, this trip, and will mix in a meal from here in the future. This country has some of the best food in the world, but a quality burger or even a steak is always a nice change.

Decorum was right out of 50'60's America. If you like good 'ol' American style culinary engorgement, this is for you!!! Have lived in Vietnam for several years, and this is the first American type diner that I've had the pleasure of eating. Salads, steaks, chili style hot dogs, hamburgers. fries, malts, they really had a nice diversified culinary delights. Food was excellent, the staff spole English and were very friendly and professional. This diner is owned and operated by an American and his Vietnamese wife, and they did a wonderful job with the appearance. Price is reasonable. They have some flat screen monitors that show some old American classics comedies. I don't live in Hanoi (Dalat), but when I return, I'll certainly come back here again.

First time to eat here. Ordered the breakfast skillet and while the portion size was huge, found it to be on the dry side. The ham, bacon, hash browns and mushrooms were all dry; the onions and peppers didn't bring enough moisture and the eggs instead of runny were overcooked. Sausage would've probably been better instead of ham. The ambience does try to duplicate that diner feel you experience in the States. Service was prompt and prices were reasonable. Perhaps worth trying another time with another dish.

Delicious food with a great menu choice. Atmosphere was spot on with the American Theme. It was slightly overpriced in my opinion. We have been travelling in Vietnam for a month now and similar restaurants to this have been quite a bit cheaper.

We ordered the wings and nachos and had a couple pints of beer. This place was exactly like a diner and has the show Friends on tv haha This place had friendly prompt service. The prices are a lot higher than average Vietnamese restaurants but that comes with finding American food. Enjoy! Would recommend!

Why would anybody go for Western food while visiting here, with all the great Vietnamese fares? I’ve been traveling in SE Asia for over 3 months and wanted good comfort food. The menu looked and was very good, classic American. I chose the classic burger, with fries. The fries were fine, but the burger was amazing. Done to perfection, with added garlic mayo, with the juices dripping down your arm as you eat. They even had real Heinz ketchup, and hot sauce. You can also add your favorite toppings if you like. Lots of other choices that I can’t judge: yet. The service was also very attentive but unobtrusive.

We fancied some good old fashioned western food tonight for a change, we googled, we found S&L’s Diner in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. It’s easy to find, has 3 floors of dining, the menu is extensive enough to cater for all tastes (of that genre) and includes alcoholic choices if that your pleasure. Food was hearty, tasty, not greasy. Servings were a good size, service was fast, staff friendly and reasonably priced. Owner (an American) was on site so we had a great chat too. Recommend dining if you feel like a change from Vietnamese food whilst travelling/visiting Hanoi! We enjoyed, hope you do too.

We don’t usually go overseas and search for western food but on our last night in Vietnam/Hanoi the kids were hanging for a burger, we asked the hotel for a suggestion and they recommended S&L diner, it didn’t disappoint - delicious diner food - hamburgers, fries, steak etc. all very tasty food and reasonably priced. The restaurant is clean and has a nice vibe - it has recently relocated so if you are looking for some western food be sure to check out S&L's Diner

American diner style in Hanoi. Sometimes you just feel like western food when you are travelling and this fits the bill. Good assortment of burgers and tex mex style food. All three meals we had were good - nachos, spaghetti bolognaise and Mexican style pasta.

Their food was mediocre at best. My black bean burger came out lukewarm and wasn’t very good. To the staff’s credit they cooked another one for me that came out hot - but quality was fair at best. My wife’s quesadilla was also fair at best. This restaurant is over rated in terms of the prior reviews -and overall trip advisor rating.

This spot saved my life in Vietnam. I am a picky person and the Vietnam food was not for me... I went to this place multiple times and it for sure did the job. I tried the Nacho, the Chili fries, Spaghetti bolognaise and mac & cheese. Keep in mind I would not consider this a 5 star restaurant in America but it is a 5 star restaurant for that type of food in Vietnam for sure.
