“Definitely worth a visit.”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Great food. Option of French or Vietnamese. Really good service and option to sit inside or outside. The green tea cake is recommended (but takes 20 minutes as it's made fresh).

Four of us had three courses and a couple of beers each for a grand total of 60 GBP.

“Great place for dinner”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We ate here twice in Hanoi - the first time we sat outside in the beautiful courtyard and the second time upstairs ... which was a little hot the night we were there. The food was delicious, not our best in Vietnam overall but a great introduction to the local cuisine. Service was a bit hit and miss.

“Good food but not so clean toilet”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This restaurant was very close to our hotel. We dine here once and food is excellent though a little bit pricey but nothing to complain about. The only negative was the toilet had no running water so unable to flush and I believe the restaurant must have known because they placed a whole big plastic mineral water on the sink for washing hands.

“Great restaurant, great food but spoiled by disgusting toilets”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

My second time to Madame Hien and the food was lovely and service acceptable.
It's a beautiful restaurant and the fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisine is superb.

However, and I apologise to those reading this at dinner time... the toilets had no running water and looked like those you would find at a music festival.
When we made a complaint to the staff about the problem, they revealed that they were already aware. However, no attempt was made to rectify the situation.

I really hope they address this issue because otherwise this is a good place to visit.
