Stumbled in here after a long day of walking in the relentless Hanoi heat, racking the steps up. We needed to get off our feet and wanted a stiff one to reward ourselves. I needed to feel something other than my legs throbbing. Up to...this point, we had ZERO luck finding a good mixed drink in Vietnam, so we were ready to just get a whiskey on the rocks. But, after briefly scanning the menu and seeing a Pho cocktail with a little arrow next to it that said “HOT TIP,” our hero could only assume that meant it’s a house recommendation. My hands were tied. When in Tuscany, have some Chianti. When in Hanoi, have a pho cocktail. You wouldn't get it... After waiting about 15 minutes, which consisted of me hitting my buddy on the arm while asking “are they killing the pho back there?” to try and get a laugh, the pho cocktail arrived. The mix of Gin, Cointreau, lime juice, topped with jalapenos and pho herbs/spices tasted like a la croix flavored pho with a little kick. It honestly wasn’t half bad. It wasn’t as stiff as I’d like and neither was my buddys little girly drink, so we ended up ordering whiskey on the rocks after. As our Whiskey’s arrived, the good people at Hanoi Social Club informed us that there was a live music show going on upstairs. But honestly, at that point, nothing sounded better than just being SLUMPED in these comfy chairs and sipping on a whiskey on the rocks while beginning to reminisce on the trip of a lifetime that was coming to a close. The whiskey really did the trick though. Mission accomplished. IG @jnov_ Tiktok @jnov_reviewsMore

My son came across this on TikTok and I'm glad he suggested we go. The food was very good value, fresh and well presented. My son had a burger which he said was tasty, the best he's had (and I've never seen him eat a...burger!) I tried a little and it was certainly good. Unfortunately, I'm unable to remember what I had although I do remember really enjoying it. The staff were welcoming and attentive.More

Wow what a place. The food here was exceptional. We have avos and eggs on toast and a burger and it was so good. Its tucked down a wee side street and the place is super cute. Service was fantastic and i would definitely recommend...checking it out if you are in Hanoi.More

Definitely worth seeking out. Lots of non meat options - the hot chocolate can best be described as liquid chocolate brownies and the salads were the best we had in five weeks in Vietnam. We visited twice for lunches and would definitely return.

This is a hidden Gem. Hard to find on google maps, so make sure you enter the address, not just the restaurant. The avocado toast is excellent and the pumpkin salad was very good. The coffee is excellent and the interior is low-key stylish. We...had a wonderful lunch here and would come back again without a thought. Nice and efficient service.More

Very disappointed in this cafe, we waited over 30mins only to enquire about our drinks and food and were told that the server was new and didn’t place our order, we just left instead or reordering. The cafe was not busy either. The menu and...drinks looked good but it’s shame we didn’t get to try and enjoy…More

This spot seems to get the reviews (i.e. when you Google "best brunch Hanoi") but it's hard to see what the fuss is about. We didn't book but got a table, unfortunately it was next to the wait staff desk so we frequently had people...hovering over us. The food was just so-so, the ambience a bit basic. Good for the IG crowd I guess as there were a lot of photographers there. It's OK but not as amazing as I was lead to believe it was going to be. Worth a look but there are better places in Hanoi.More

I am a frequent customer of Hanoi social club. I love the place because of atmosphere it brings to me and also the drinks, brunches are fine too. However, lately when i came to the place with my friend, i felt disappointed. The attitude of...the waiter (young, glasses with curly hair) made me and my friends uncomfortable. He showed annoyed on his face when he served us and was looking at us or walked around to check. He showed that he didn't like the way we were spending time at the place longer than other customers. We even ordered more drinks to stay. We like the cozy Hanoi social club brings to us but the waiter attitude ruined our afternoon day off. He even sat at the opposite and heaved a sigh to express that he wanted us to leave asap. I hope that my go-to place can not be ruined by one person attitude.More

Place is over hyped. Construction work going on with paint fumes etc which wrecks the aesthetic being one reason this place is popular. Had the grilled chicken sandwich as recommended which was quite nice but bread needed to be toasted. The vege burger was inedible...just acrumbly soggy mess. Mango juice was warm no ice. Iced Viet coffee w condensed milk was excellent.More

Overall we were disappointed with our visit to the Hanoi Social Club. The food was fine and staff were polite but there was no atmosphere at all. The final bill was pricey for what we ate. I would not visit again as neither the food...nor ambience would warrant a return trip. There are plenty of options elsewhere providing a better atmosphere&better food at far more reasonable prices.More

I've been here 3 times in 2 years. Every time I came to Hanoi, I always set aside time to have either lunch or dinner at this awesome place. Very sweet staff, great food options, and such reasonable prices. Especially love their Pork Belly Bahn...Mi on wheat baguette.... yummmm! Will be back again soon.More

This is a great rustic spot. Staff was super friendly and very helpful. I had a cheeseburger and fries and my wife had French toast with raisin and walnuts. Best burger I have had in Hanoi hands down. Well worth the super cheap price.
