Vietnamese cuisine, we found the restaurant extremely comfortable not in the sense of sofas n cushions, but in the ease of atmosphere. A courtyard type restaurant quite pretty and food good

The best food we've had in our two week stay in Vietnam! Two had dinner here twice and tried most of their specialty dishes. The fish with galangal was my favorite!

I ate here twice. The first time I came with my friend and we both ended up getting Vietnamese Family Dinner, which has a variety of dishes. We saw a couple with Hot Pot, which we were tempered to get, but we joked that it looked like "work," requiring a server at the table. The best one was the papaya... More

This charming restaurant, which serves deftly prepared traditional Vietnamese food, is his tribute to her. Located on a quiet street in the heart of Hanoi, dining is available both inside this atmospheric villa and on the umbrella embellished patio.The menu focuses on dishes... More

Excellent service and the food was superb. Had the best pomelo salad I've ever had and duck that was very tasty. The... More

We ate at Madame Hien twice during our recent visit to Hanoi - it was so fabulous the first time that we had to go back! I love sitting in the courtyard, the staff are excellent and, most importantly, the food is sublime. You can choose from a range of set menus but we chose a la carte both times... More

The only reason why we chose to dine at Madame Hien was because it was just opposite our hotel on our day of arrival in Hanoi. The food wasn't that great for the price we paid; the service of the waiting staff certainly needed much improvement (they didn't bring us what we requested for even after we asked them TWICE)....
