For a cozy dinner with really tasteful dishes, we enjoyed our time here. Our kids still love the desert and we recommend it to all other travelers

We had a late lunch here on our second day in Sapa. We chose this venue because of the nice terrace, but food and service turned out to be very good as well.

We had dinner here and it didn't quite live up to expectations. The choice was good and the food was ok, not exceptional. The service was fine. Good place for a quick dinner

On a quiet street near the action. Very accommodating to vegetarians. Good ambience. Eggplant dish a must.

We had a late arrival in Sapa and took a short walk up the hill to Red Dao. They has a large menu and we tried the fried rice and spring rolls and both were very good. The beer was cold. Overall a good meal at a decent price. Would eat there again.

We ordered the Beef with Lemongrass and Chilli and the Sweet and Sour Fish. Both very tasty and good sized to share. Local apple wine (quite strong) with filtered coffee to finish. It's off the main drag so a bit quieter but still close to our hotel and less pestering from the local Street shopping ladies. The staff were attentive... More

Too expensive for the quality and quantity of the food. They have "tourist" tables (without chopsticks and they charge for cold tea; whereas it's free everywhere else in Vietnam). The service was pretty bad while there were only few people in the restaurant. A disapointment.

After a hectic day viewing the beauty of Sapa it was a pleasure to eat here. We liked it so much we ate there twice. It is a very comfortable setting and the food is delicious. We loved the Honey Duck and the Pork dishes, the sauces they made to serve with these meals were delicious! The staff was attentive.

Ate 2 meals here while in Sapa. We enjoyed the vegetable curry and the pineapple shrimp fried rice. We were disappointed in the pork dish we ordered can not remember the name but think it was grilled pork with lemon grass.

Thank seethworld
