Visited this place on a Friday evening. Ok place, but that's it. One small elevator to all the 7 floors make the entrance difficult specially if there is a lot of people. Take the stairs. That will bring you to the top quicker. Young girls with Motorola radios trying to organize seating where there are to close between tables for... More

Dropped in by chance as daughter and her boyfriend had eaten. Ordered spaghetti bolognese and Sapa Duck. Also ordered a side of sweet potato fries with vanilla dipping sauce. A glass of wine, a strawberry milkshake, Sprite and a chocolate milkshake. Duck was fabulous, spaghetti Bol average. Sweet potato fries a little dry but dipping sauce helped but quite sweet....

Dropped in for dinner with a friend whilst travelling Hanoi and it was certainly a good decision. The selection of food caters for all and is simply delicious. The spring rolls for starter were the best I've had so far travelling south east Asia. The main course, stir fry vermicelli with chicken was out of this world. It's fairly priced... More

We met friends just after sunset on the open rooftop bar with a beaut vista of the lake and surrounds. Drink prices are reasonable with beer around 50K and spirits 90 to 120K. Then moved down one floor into restaurant/lounge and all had enjoyable meals. I had the snake head fish which was great with more drinks and the whole... More

Came here for the happy hour, buy 1 get 1 free, but did not expect this amazing view from their 6th floor rooftop bar! Even better, the happy hour takes places during the sunset hours too!!

Great place for a drink and some food when in the old quarter. Nice and relaxing, great air conditioning and good food to match. Definitely worth a visit, especially during happy hour (3-6pm)

Bit confusing when you first get there as there sees to be one different specialty restaurant per floor... Head to the sixth one for vietnamese specialties. If lucky you may get a table by the window, but if very lucky you might get access to the roof terrace. Service is swift and friendly. Food is authentic and really yummy. A... More

You can see the restaurant from the street surrounding the lake - it is near the large building with big beer adverts just along from the Water Puppet Theatre. Entrance is tricky to find - looks like an entrance to a ground floor cafe - best to ask someone or look for the lady with the menu standing outside (... More
