Rep said authentic so tried it out. Well worth going. Really good food at reasonable prices. They have limited English, but we're so helpful. Great atmosphere. Think there is a buffet on the first floor.

We tried various local dishes which we enjoyed but the squid/calamari was tough. Good service by friendly staff although language wasn't that easy.

I was hosted at this restaurant in my first trip to HCM. The steamed pork is amazing. Vietnamese spring rolls are a must try!

This used to be one of our favourite restaurants in the good old days when it wasn't modernised and was serving authentic good Vietnamese/Chinese food. Some years ago it renovated its premises and now together with higher prices, portions have also shrunk and taste compromised. What a pity though we still enjoy certain dishes like their hearts of palm and... More

Hoang Yen is just around the corner from the river. No communication problems though English knowledge of staff is "moderate". Clams with pepper and basil, squid with lemongrass and onion, stir fried chicken with vegetables and herbs... everything tasted good, some even delicious. Service is adequate. Prices moderate by our standards, perhaps a bit on the high side for HCMC.

Nice ambience and good food make this restaurant a staple for a stay in Hanoi. We had a multi course meal from spring rolls to watermelon and enjoyed not only the meal but the service and the atmosphere

No words can describe this place! It's so bloody good and tasty. The menu is well done and compliments the food that comes out. The taste, texture of the food is very good. Would definitely come back.

Second time to the restaurant. Nice food and settings. Nothing fanciful. Good place to dine and have a conversation.

There is a good choice of Vietnamese dishes. Food qualityis good (although not outstanding). Prices just a little high for Vietnam. You are paying for the location and the outdoor dining overlooking the lake - worth paying a little extra.
