Food is amazing. Had the tiger prawns in cognac sauce. Best I've ever had. £5 it works out. My friend had the steak £4, very nice he said.

We had the chicken burger and a vegetarian prawn with rice. Food was fine but little pricey. Hanoi has numerous great western and authentic restaurants. You can find better..

This place is always full of young people from North America. It's nothing special but it's like home. There's a special room on the second floor for large groups, and service there is fast and friendly
