It’s not just delicious food, it’s a whole experience. The combination of colours, aromas and ambiance was a delicate mix of exotic shades. Staff helped to understand Vietnamese food. Russiana and James and the rest of the staff were amazing. This place is a must!

What a great experience in one of the highest decorated restaurants in Hanoi. Not just a really nice, fast and friendly service by Daisy, Mint & Leo, but also excellent food for a fair price.
