“Good view, standard menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Had dinner here a couple of times. Sitting on the balcony looking out over the lake was very pleasant. Food was very good but nothing spectacular and the prices reflected that (85,000/120,000d for a main). Sort of place its easy to find yourself going back to.

“Nice View over Hanoi's busiest intersection”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

A perfect location near the Lake and a busy traffic hotspot of Hanoi's city center. The balcony allows you to just relax and watch the scene of daily life. Dishes are nice and the variety is large. Interior could be much cozier but you chose this restaurant not because of the atmosphere but the location.
A suitable place to stop-by while exploring the city.

“Decent food, good view but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I had shrimp with cashew nuts which was pretty tasty if slightly overpriced but I didn't spot that they exclude VAT and in their menu prices, there's no excuse for that it's pure greed and extremely frustrating. The atmosphere was ok, the place was pretty empty and the staff were chatting but the view onto the lake was really nice.

“Best Long Island Cocktails in Hanoi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Great location overlooking Hoan Kiem Lake, and watching the amazing traffic and all who brave the crossing of the road, food was great and their cocktails are cheap and EXCELLENT got plenty of alcohol in them, we went there five nights in row, if not to always eat, definitely to drink, the staff are very friendly and really make you feel welcome, and a big Hi to "K" we couldn't pronounce his name (shame on us) lovely young man, so if you like your cocktails this is the place.
