“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Very modern and well decortated restaurant tucked away on a Hanoi backstreet near the middle of old town
Excellent value for money
Staff were outstanding and took time to ensure everything was perfect for us.
You need to book in advance to avoid disappointment

Crispy spring rolls were amazing

2 starters, 3 mains, 3 desserts, 3 drinks – 42 USD

“Small, clean, excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We ate breakfast here every day and also ordered wine in the evenings. We wanted to experience traditional Vietnamese foods and they offer a wide variety. (They also offer "normal" food for tourists who aren't adventurous.) It was always so pleasant to be there, the food delicious and the service outstanding.

“Dont spend time to search other restaurants in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Similar to the hotel good atmosphere great service and delicous food. Especially if you are staying in the hotel and have limited time there is no need to search for restaurants in the city...ps: trick is to reserve the private like booths fit for 2-4 people... Enjoy...
