We live in nearby Nghi Tam and had been meaning to try this place out for a while and finally made it over this week.

I'd been looking at the menu online for a while - in particular I hadn't had ceviche anywhere in Hanoi and was looking forward to trying it. First mouthful was a bit of a let down as I'd hoped for something more citrus tangy than creamy. But I soon realised it was just different to what I'd had before.

Main course we both opted for ribs which is great value for the size of the portions. Two big eaters and we really struggled to finish this. The meat was beautifully prepared. That's one of the great things about restaurant, the options - a decent range of prices from burgers to steak. That said - even at happy hour with two glasses of wine, one beer, two of the cheaper main courses and only one started - it all added up to 1.1m VND which wasn't cheap.

We'll certainly be back and make use of the delivery too. Minor quibbles - Eminem on loud in the upstairs dining area when we got there - it's just not that kind of place. Nor the Taylor Swift that was on too. Better when we asked if it could be turned down. Also the more atmospheric downstairs is smoking which is a shame when smokers could take a single step outside.

The only other thing I'd change is that the Fijan Lamb Curry sounded incredible but I didn't want to order it for a starter in case it turned up as a spoonful of sauce in the middle of a plate (and I desperately wanted the ceviche) Please make it a main course. The starters were the most imaginative part of the menu and it was tempting to just order a selection to share instead of a single main course.

All issues were minor - all in all pretty great. We'll be back.

It's really worth to go there - excellent food (cooked by the chef Ashem) with a nice selection between exotic curry dishes as also nice international cuisine and steak's.
We was eating in the Wine cellar (nice table for 4 pax.) special starters as also different main courses all fabulous cooked.
The service of the personal was nice, friendly and very attentively.

One of the best place to go now in Hanoi.

We have now eaten here 4 times and it just gets better! Friendly, professional staff and the super menu is backed up with amazing food on the plate.

Must try: lamb curry (Indian style) starter, scallops starter, duck confit main course, chicken schnitzel main course.

Stayed at the Sheraton, and found this gem within walking distance. Had some delicious and good value wine here. Also, wanting a break from the local cuisine, we tried the Bluebird pizza. Probably one of the best pizzas I've had! The staff are friendly, and the manager great.
Downstairs is the cellar with private dining tables, which would be amazing to hire. Toilets were better then most restaurants I've been to in Vietnam.

dont waste time -just go . Recently opening this is new gem on Xuan Dieu. The pork belly main is the star of the show as well as the pacific styled succulent raw fish. Service is excellent with a large range of reasonably priced wine options. Great value for money even though first impressions are that it is trying to be to flash-its not. Great for couples or small groups of friends. Hurry before it gets popular.
