Went to Sen with friends from Sweden on a weekend to eat the dinner buffé on the upper floor. Vietnamese guests and us. At most of the tables they where drinking and making A LOT of noice. Sometimes it was hard to hear what my friends where talking about. But hey, thats Vietnam. If you are looking for a secluded restaurant for a romantic dinner go somewhere else.

But what about the food?
A lot and quite tasteless according to me. You can find other restaurants that have much better food then this place.

Maybe it can be fun if you like to try as many dishes as possible during one evening. You can also try some, for us westerners, odd dishes like fried larvae and grilled baby birds.

Had our christmas eve dinner just now. Overwhelming amount of food but the food quality is just so-so. They lack exhaust ventilation coz it was smokey inside. Some food were hard and cold already.

I was taken to the International (upper) buffet for lunch today. A totally amazing selection of primarily Asian seafood - loved those giant prawns! The creme brulee was rather tasty too. Quite a change for tourists from the usual pho or bun cha, I would say (for a moment I thought it was Las Vegas!)

I have been to Sen's multiple times for multiple occasions and have never been failed in the slightest. The food is tasty, the service is great and the selection is amazing. My favourite part is the sushi and desert bar which are unrivaled by any restaurants in Hanoi. One advice is to try it out on week day when there are fewer people jogging around for food!

This is a fabulous restaurant with excellent food, great setting and atmosphere. A huge selection of good quality seafood, well presented, some of the best ever experienced in Asia. The desserts are awesome; going for seconds and thirds is hard to resist.
The string quartet is a nice and entertaining addition to a great dinning experience.
Definitely will go back!
