I had a very enjoyable lunch here while solo in Hanoi. The owner herself took great care of me. I enjoyed just the chicken quesadilla and some Sauvignon Blanc, but the atmosphere was very refined and relaxing. It was exactly what one needs before heading to the airport in Hanoi (God help you).

Prices are reasonable, and the wine was spot on. How I wish I had more time in Hanoi for a return visit!

We were staying at the Sheraton ..2 min away and found this on tripadvisor. I am so glad we went...they had a buy one get one free wine offer before 7pm so it made the wine price more affordable. Our entrees of Duck rolls and Pulled pork wraps were fantastic in taste and presentation. I only wish I had bought my phone to take some photos. Our mains of Sea Bass were also most enjoyable. All patrons in this restaurant on the night were Europeans with only one local who came to have a glass of wine and smoke at the bar which spoilt it for all diners present. Unfortunately Vietnam allows smokers inside restaurants. Luckily he left after the one wine and 2 cigarettes. Sorry I just hate breathing in someone elses cigarette smoke when Im trying to enjoy good food !!
This place is an absolute find...the food is great and the staff serving on the night were lovely.
ps dont be put off by the limited internet menu ...they are working on their website I believe and have many items on offer and prices are most reasonable for the quality they provide.

Thank you for your recent review. The team is always happy to hear from a client who has enjoyed themselves at Bluebird. As you mentioned smoking is allowed in restaurants in Vietnam but we do have non smoking rooms available both upstairs and downstairs. Thank you for your positive comments which I will share with the staff. We pride ourselves on great service and excellent food.

Had a Monday night dinner with family and a visiting friend. Everyone liked their food. We did not sample the wines this time.

Thank you for your recent review. The team is always happy to hear from a client who has enjoyed themselves at Bluebird. I am not sure where you were sitting to hear noise from the kitchen as we endeavour to keep the kitchen quiet and unobtrusive. We hope we can welcome you back again and I will find a good table for you.

We were very impressed with the food here but don't expect Vietnamese food, it's high quality Western food. The menu was quite varied and I followed the manageress' advice for my main course which was pork belly with mashed potato and green asparagus. My sons were equally content with their choice of huge crunchy ribs. The only down side was the bill. The price for the food was reasonable but the cost of the wine amounted to half of the bill, so just be careful about that. I agree with Mandy's comment about the lack of people, my sons who live there said that it's always quite empty, must be the price of the wine?

Thank you for your recent review. The team is always happy to hear from a client who has enjoyed themselves at Bluebird. As for the wine, we import wine from all over the world and I believe we have something for every budget. As for always being empty this is far from true. People may think this when they walk by on the street. But our most popular tables are located on the second floor and downstairs in our wine section, which are both out of sight. We enjoy a healthy clientele and have many regulars to prefer to book their favourite tables when dining with us. The wine we import is sold in many restaurants and hotels in Vietnam and as I said is priced for every budget. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I hope we can welcome you back soon.
