We ate at this restaurant twice for dinner and every morning for breakfast and we could not fault the food or service.
Modern presentation of food and good wine as well.
Would definitely return if we come back to Hanoi.

We have been in Hanoi for several days and tried a lot of restaurants. We started our first night with this restaurant and had a wonderfull experience; with the atmosphere, the food, the wine and the service. This placed a high standard during the holiday and none of the other restaurants including hotel restaurants could reach the same standard. We went back several times. Do not nead to worry about not being able to try different dishes here, the menu is set up with a combination of different spices and tastes. The prices are good and really worth the food you get. Try it.

On our 5th day in Hanoi we decided to finish with essence and we're not disappointed.

Very good service, excellent Vietnamese dishes and very tasty.

You just need to ignore the louder voiced touristy types who are attracted to a restaurant like this which also serves hamburgers, Greek salads etc for those who don't like to go out of their comfort zone.
