The entree and meal were great, the portions could be a little bigger for the paid price. The staff seems very friendly and professional. Even the bathrooms are a must see;-) Would go again anytime!

We dined there Thursday and had an excellent experience. The Hanoi fixed menu and house Sav Blanc were excellent value with (almost) more food than we could eat, with the pork shoulder being our highlight dish. Would definitely recommend!

We visited this restaurant with family. The food was amazing. We had the tasting menu for 4 and there was plenty. The service was very good and the surroundings great. We even watched the kitchen staff scrub down the whole of the kitchen at the end of the evening - there is a huge glass window in the restaurant and you can see straight in to the kitchen.

Four of us celebrated a friend's 60th with the tasting menu with matched wines. It was fantastic. Service not obtrusive and timely. Not cheap but well worth it.
