Myself and my friend got this place recommended to us on Facebook, we presume now that it must have been by an employee of the establishment as no-one else would. We heard that the hostel was new so assumed the faculties would be sparkling...not so....More

I'm fussy. I like good food, good wine, nice environs and cheap. Not often you find this combination. But the exchange cafe is a hidden gem. It's next to the stock exchange, down a side alley that doesn't look much. When you find it, you...More

This café, on several levels, is very pleasant. It's in a great location, especially if you are going to the Opera House or want a central location to meet people (even though it's in an alley!) The food is not great, but it's okay and...More

This is THE place to go to after having been at the Opera for a performance! Especially if you can get to one of the outdoor tables onthe top floors. Great veiw and very peaceful sitting. The food is OK, perhaps not worth raving about....More

Very nice cafe and friendly staff and owner, but the Vietnamese food I had was disappointing. The spring roll was good, but the chicken stirfry entree was poor compared to other food I had in Hanoi. I wish I'd eaten at one of the street...More

No trip to Hanoi would be completed without a visit to Exchange Cafe.... Hide away in a quite lane opposite Hanoi Opera House, Exchange offers a cosy atmosphere and is ideal for business meetings, breakfast appointments, lunch on the go or drinks after work. A perfect rooftop terrace for a cocktail lingering after the show at the Opera House.
