This is my first time trying "Egg with coke" at Cafe Giang. It's bad, actually.These two flavors don't seem to go together. Egg coffee is good. But it isn't as good as egg coffee at Neo Cafe. The egg coffee there is so much tastier.

The egg coffee was very good. We would come back for more if we were in the area. The staff could smile once in a while. They are proficient but not friendly.

Tried the egg coffee both hot and on ice. In our opinion, over ice was much better. When hot it’s still quite sweet but the ice waters it down slightly. Authentic premises but you can tell this gets a lot of tourists. Nonetheless it should...definitely be a place to visit.More

My friends in Hanoi had recommended it. I had no chance to try more egg coffees somewhere else, but I definitely likes this one. Long list of egg coffees to choose from. Part of the experience is the place itself, you enter from a very...narrow corridor from the street, and you unexpectedly end up in a very busy multi floor environment, unusually decorated, with extremely small tables and chairs. A bit crazy, I loved it, definitely a must do in Hanoi. Slow service.More

An interesting taste, though it’s not for everyone I would say. There is a lot of selection and it’s probably up to you to guess what would suit ur taste… Our family chose different types, some felt it was great, the other felt it’s just...hyped up. Just enter the store, grab a seat, order from the menu and when the server served the drinks u will get a tag which u will use for payment later. Which was quite efficient I would say… drinks were delivered quite quickly, the place was not packed when we visited…More

One of the best egg coffee of Hanoi. This is a must do. Despite their success and notoriety, they still keep the price totally raisonnable. On top of classic egg coffee, you have a lot of different combination, with some exotic one, like egg beer,...which was surprising. Mention to the Egg Rhum and Egg Almond coffee. Is you don't see place to upstairs there is more space there.More

Always packed of people, locals and foreigners. Nice ambience with paintings. Met the owner, who is the son of the founder. Delicious egg coffee of course, very creamy...

Our friends from Vietnam Backstreet Tours took us to Cafe Giang to taste the original egg coffee. This coffee is my new favorite type of coffee - it tasted like a sweet desert.

Egg coffee is one of the must try drink when you are at Hanoi. Was told that this shop is the “founder” for the egg coffee. It is located at a small alley, with low table & chair. I ordered the traditional hot egg coffee,...to be honest the taste is not to my liking, however worth for trying.More

Easy-going staff, well-ventilated rooms, reasonably priced drinks that taste distinctive. But I've tried Egg Coffee at Neo Cafe already. So I think the egg cafe there is better.

Reputedly the home of the egg coffee creation. Coming about due to shortage of milk. It is an acquired taste but everyone coming to Vietnam needs to try it at least once. Won't say what it tastes like because that is part of the experience,...only to say it was a unique coffee !More

This cafe lives up to its name of kopi gian (read in hokkien dialect). A place thaf you will crave not only for its egg coffee but also egg mung bean which is my favorite

I saw no "to go" service or cups. You sit and sip. Hey, you are in Hanoi. Sit, sip and relax a bit. 😁
