I have been several time to Song Thu Restaurant and despite its remote (new) emplacement from what Hanoi has to offer in touristic activities, Song Thu deserves a special attention. Indeed, this restaurant is part of Hoa Sua school's project to train disavantaged youth in the culinary/bakery and hospitality sector. So don't expect to have a 5 stars table service when you enter the restaurant since the students are training and their english abilities are low, however you will be immediately stunned by the atmosphere and the architecture of this French Colonial building. Song Thu is a little piece of paradise in Hanoi's chaos and agitation. The menu is varied with French and Vietnamese specialities. Most of the cook have been trained in France and I found some main course that I was not able to find out anywhere else in Hanoi, like the famous "Poulet Chasseur" or the "meat lasagna".
Last but not least, Hoa Sua provides vietnamese cooking classes for groups and they are worth trying if you want to reproduce Spring Rolls or Pho back home.
