We arrived with sapa train in the morning at Lao cai. A men sold us bus tickets at Hai Nhi restaurant to Bachá and Sapa. Tickets were 400.000 Dong. The first shuttle bus was packed and no space for us. When we were waiting for the next one that men just disappeared with our money. No bus anymore. He stole... More

Not bad food with good prices, perfect to have a meal before taking the train to Hanoi. They have wifi and good staff. Good option there

We were 6 visiting this restaurant, ordering French fries, fried corn, burger, pizza, spaghetti and fried rice, corn and beef. We scored the food between 1-3 stars. Service was ok though.

Ate here whilst waiting for a train and picking up tickets. My advice. Don't bother. Ordered the pizza (150,000D) and pasta (99,000). Expensive anyway but we expected for this a decent pizza. What we got - small child size tastless pizza, undercooked on soggy pre bought pizza base. Worst food in Vietnam

I think there are several restaurants around Lao Cai station that do this meal and train ticket service. There is a big sign outside this restaurant to say that you can exchange your vouchers for tickets there. I was advised to wait here by the bus driver. I didn't think the food was wonderful but I should have known better... More

We had to get the train voucher at this restaurant . So while waiting for the train, we had our dinner. Great fried cabbages and sauteed tofu with vegetables to go with our steamed rice. The honey with lemon was a refreshing drink in the hot day.

At least I got a seat with some people who I had met earlier in the day. It was relatively cool with fans. But the ginger tea had no real ginger in it. Maybe I should have a beer once I get my ticket.

The restaurant serve as a waiting area for passengers who are waiting to board the train so the restaurant can get so noisy particularly in the late afternoon till early evening. The free dinner that came with our Sapa tour package was decent enough. Staffs are kind but since there are only few of them, service can be slow during... More

** I will preface this by saying it's right before New Year's and I think the restaurant was understaffed. But still... ** We stopped to eat here before catching our train back to Hanoi (we had to because that's where we were picking up our tickets). Once we arrived no one came over or gave us menus, we had to... More
