This is part of a chain of restaurants that serve buffet style, including multiple cooking stations for specific dishes such as noodles, grilled or steamed fish/meat, barbeque, local pancake, etc. The food is generally excellent and cover a huge variety, from raw oysters to bbq small whole birds and many traditional Vietnamese dishes. It can be a bit crowded and noisy, but is the perfect place if you have a large group. Beer and bottles of wine available (none by the glass). Bit far from old quarter - there is another branch of Sen which is closer.

It is a great restaurant. Although it is a little bit far from the old quarter, it is worth coming here for dinner. You can taste hundreds of dishes. I love sea food and special food of Hanoi here. They are very delicious. We paid over USD 10/pax. It is more expensive than you eat food in one local restaurant but we can try many different kind of food.

This well decorated open vast restaurant had over 150 different dishes offering Veg food also. The barbecue and crab noodle soup are top notch. Go with a good appetite as all the dishes are tempting and must try. They also have a few continental dishes for the not so adventurous traveller. Great value for money.

They have 3 kinds of buffet dinner: We tried to order the kind that provides all kind of vietnamese food. However, we could not tell which was which and picked buffet worldwide. It turned out to be providing some vietnamese food and many grilled seafood. I thought we should be booking Buffet Hanoi instead.

This is the biggest buffet restaurant in Hanoi. Many kind of local foods are available in this restaurant. Price per person is around USD 16 to USD 18 , not included drink. I really recommend you to visit this restaurant, instead of looking around the local food in the street, you just visit this restaurant and you will find many kind of local food to be served in this restaurant. But there are only 2 things I do not feel comfortable, one is noisy and the other is not many waiter can speak English. But the rest is ok....
