“Cool little place tucked away!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

This little place is tucked amongst some little Vietnamese boutiques, and would be very easy to miss if you didn't know where you were going!
Great atmosphere... Feels like a little old house!
Menu had a wide selection of western style items and good prices.
I had the veggie roti wrap and it was stuffed full of goodies. The beetroot and choc cake at the end was also delicious.
Service was good at the start- we had an attentive waitress, and then when it came time to clear our plates away and get a dessert menu we had to wait a good 15 mins and then ask.
Beyond that little blip, I would definitely go back and try out the breakkie offerings!

“Great place to chill, get away from the beep beep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Located down a side street, Hanoi Social Club is a nice quiet place to get out of the hustle and bustle of Hanoi.

The place has pretty much everything you need when on a trip: great food (the french fries were the best that we'd had in our trip!), good coffee, board games, great atmosphere, great music, friendly staff, free wifi, and second hand books for sale.

Great place to waste a couple of hours.

“Don't believe everything you read”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, however don't believe the sign at the counter.. "any item missing from the receipt and your meal is free ". Half our bill was missing, but it didnt matter. We got a coffee and cake special for 100k but asked for an mocha instead.. Which was all fine but when we went to pay we were charged separately. Food delivered but it was downhill from there. Don't put signs up if they don't mean anything.

“Lovely and healthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for Vietnamese cuisine, pass your way! This is a delightful haven of peace that through its fusion organic cuisine, music and laidback style, conveys you health and peace in an otherwise busy and cosmopolitan city. Nice mango curry (with brown rice please!) , good wine, decent expresso and wonderful flourless brownie!

“Hip and relaxing and decent Italian style coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

A friend who lived a year in Hanoi recommended this place to me and I have fallen in love with it. The atmosphere, including customers, decor, food and staff make it an interesting and fun hangout. We have chilled out work team meeting here because the coffee is good for Hanoi, it has lots of seating and a healthy food menu? You have to check it out if you're in the Old Quarter!
