“Upmarket and good”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

A tour guide in Hanoi recommended this restaurant to my travelling companion as she was saying we hadn't been able to find a really good meal in Hanoi. One of the reasons of course was that many restaurants were closed due to the New Year holidays. He recommended this and we found it to be excellent. We asked them to suggest a meal and the results were very enjoyable.

Would highly recommend. $50 covered dinner for two with a glass of wine each and bottled water. Don't forget to book though as it is busy and situated in the old town close to the Water Puppet Theatre and Lake. Phone (+84.4)3.935.2888

Overall, enjoyable food, Vietnamese catering for westerners. Good location in old town. Wine list primarily Chilean and French. The appetisers were a highlight.

“This is the place for you if you're a tour bus kind of guy”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The food was fine, overpriced, but fine. My wife and I came here for dinner at our hotel's recommendation, and the entire restaurant was literally packed with one tour bus group after another. The menu was helpfully written in 3 different languages (English, Japanese, and Vietnamese) for all the tour groups. Again, the food was probably fine, but the overwhelming tourist feel is a bit much. Oh, expect them to tack on a healthy service charge on your behalf as well. Thought that was poor form.

“Can do much better”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Nice setting, good decor and good service.
But for the rest and i think this restaurant can do much better given the price (well above average). Dishes were quite unusual, maybe a bit too much to our taste. we left a bit disappointed

“A Happy Discovery”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were looking for another restaurant and stumbled upon this one. The seafood pho was great and the seafood clay pot was even better. We went back for a second night and the food was just as good but some servers had not showed up for their shift so service was slower. Reasonably priced.
