Description: The Blue Butterfly is located inside the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, occupying a 300-year-old two-storey wooden house that promises a highly atmospheric and enjoyable environment. Its antique architecture should be the most attractive feature of this restaurant with all the furniture made of wood, traditional antiquities and Hanoi's scenes hanging along the wall...

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst wandering the streets of Hanoi, and it looked really cute from the outside, all nicely lit up.

There are 2 levels to the restaurant, and as I have mobility problems we opted for downstairs, but lots of people seemed to be upstairs, so I'm guessing there was something special up there?

The food was good, but not exceptional. In saying that we ordered several dishes and wolfed them all down.

There is free wifi, with a strong signal which was great, as I finally managed to Skype home!

The staff weren't overly friendly, nor did they go out of their way to assist. We actually felt like we were imposing when we asked for our bill.

Ok restaurant, but could improve service.

What deliciously tasty food all beautifully served. The spring rolls were fresh and crispy and the fried rice was full of flavour. The black sticky rice with caramel ice cream was yummy for dessert. All so very, very cheap.

Had very watery smoothies compared to healthy one in HCMC. Spring rolls were very loosely wrapped and contents fell out. Staff tried very hard but other restaurants that are close are a better option.

Though cheaper than Gourmet Corner, it is really not value for money......service is not good, food doesn't taste good and just wasn't a good dining experience.
But if all u are looking for is just a place to fill yr stomach at affordable price, then this is ok.
Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend this place.

We were accompanied my our chef Diep. He was excellent. He took us to the local markets. We picked up meat and veges from the locals. We came back to the kitchen and cooked a delicious Vietnamese meal. The whole experience was great. I highly recommend it!
