“Wonderful Dinner”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I came here for dinner in the evenging. First of all, a luxury place and view. I had to pay 880++ for my dinner and I thought that's a good price for what I got. Staffs are very friendly and polite, I found my favourite dish in here - BBQ Beef Rib in Korea style. Of course, there are still many other delicious dishes but I couldn't eat all. Enjoy all the time in here!

“Had lunch at the buffet”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Went there for a business lunch, had a good time there. Buffet is complete, different sections incl.Japanese, chinese, italian, desert corner. Can't recall all but buffet is about 650,000vnd++ (35usd++)incl free flow for iced tea, soft drink. Would definitely go back there, was unfortunate that they close sometimes that outlet for private venues, especially after such a trek from Hanoi to that area. Service is good as a JW Marriott should be and the standard of the hotel is amongst the TOP in Hanoi too.

Dear chrispe,
Thank you very much for giving us a positive review for our JW Cafe.
I was happy to learn that you enjoyed the lunch buffet and found the offerings to be complete.
We do entertain larger groups at times but always try to keep seats available for our regular customers.
There are also other venues like our Lobby Lounge to choose from and we are really looking forward to introduce the first Crystal Jade Palace restaurant in Hanoi to our guests within the next 2 weeks.
Please feel free to call on me the next time you are visiting the hotel. I will be delighted to give you a personal tour of our new culinary addition.

Kind reagrds!

“Korean food”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

If you are a Korean fan, you will fell in love with the bbq counter which has plenty of beef rib, seafoods and kimchi... I also love the lovely and tasty cakes. The restaurant was so cozy and beautiful. Will come back again :)

“An amazing place to be in Hanoi”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

I love everything about this restaurant: the foods, the decorations and views. The foods are devided in significant sectors such as Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Italian and stuffs which are very nice. The service here is simply the warmest and most welcomed out of all 5 star hotels in Hanoi. And what else? I absolutely enjoy free flow drinks included in my buffet: the fresh juices, soft drinks, tea... JW cafe is officially no.1 on my chilling out list with my family and friends :)
