Have given Halia 5 stars for all criteria as it is a true 5 star quality restaurant that would hold it's own anywhere in the world. Each meal is a work of art and more importantly tastes fantastic. The service is spot on and the fine touches and attention to detail makes this restaurant unique in Hanoi. Although easily the most expensive restaurant we tried in Hanoi it is still cheap comparatively speaking. My family of three paid $190 US but we treated ourselves to a three course dinner each and a couple of bottles of wine which probably made up half of the bill. Really impressed by our waitress, Viet, who was extremely attentive, friendly and incredibly professional. Her English was also very good. Viet picked up that it was my wife and my anniversary and arranged for a small complimentary personalized cake for us. My only criticism, and this is across the board for all restaurants in Vietnam, is that smoking is still allowed in parts of the restaurant and of course the smell of smoke whilst you are eating is a deterrent for many diners. Ask for a table towards the back of the second level at Halia If this concerns you. This was both my wife and my best dining experience of the many restaurants we visited during our Vietnam holiday.
