We had the pleasure of dining in the Red Bean for Dinner and the food and presentation first class.

My wife had the Rolling Beef and I had the Stuffed Chicken Leg, both very delicious and enjoyed with a Chilean Red Wine.

The staff were very friendly and very conversant in Ehglish.

Befoire Dinner, we enjoyed some Cocktails during the Happy Hour from 16:30 till 18:00, two for one drinks - not to be missed.

Highly recommended, we found the prices in line with our expectations of a First Class Restaurant.

Dear Graham F,

It is a pleasure for us reading such an excellent review. We felt very honor to host your stay and dinner in our property. As far as I remember, these honorable guests have extensive travel experience. And, it is absolutely brilliant for us that you have thoroughly liked your experience with us.

It was no doubt that you have chosen some of our specialties which were recently updated on our menu by the restaurant's head chef. In the upcoming time, we continue varying our menu with Vietnamese authentic dishes. And, I hope that we could meet the expectation of every single visit to our restaurant.

Love to hear you enjoyed our Wine selection as well as the Cocktails during Happy Hour. Most importantly, you found our staff team friendly and very conversant in English.

Thank you once again for rating our restaurant that high and finding your meal in line with your pricing expectation. Look forward to having the opportunity to serve you again.

We went there to have dinner and I don't understand why it has so many good comments. We ordered two different fish courses and they were just fine. In my opinion the portions were meager and the price expensive considering what you are getting and the fact that in Hanoi there are several great options of local food.

Dear Walkelia,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience in our Red Bean restaurant. It is a pleasure reading that you found the food fine for your taste. We appreciate that you chose our restaurant based on a number of excellent reviews. That proves we are on the right track “creating the most comfortable and enjoyable experience” to every single visit to our Hanoi Red Bean restaurant.

Having said, food taste is very subjective and various. One dish may be excellent for this person, but could be the worst for another. We never expect to please everyone’s taste, but majority. Therefore, we always welcome feedback in order to improve further.

In this case, we feel sorry that you found the food expensive. Though we may not be able to change the perception of value you received, please be re-affirmed that we set out the pricing based on the quality of food and comparison with other similar standard restaurants in town. And, I am happy that the majority of our guests have found it reasonable.

In the upcoming time, we continue offering special discount and happy hour on updated menu. And, we look forward to having another opportunity to welcome you all at our Hanoi Red Bean Restaurant.

On the occasion of the new year of the Goat, we wish you all the best. May the New Year bring you with prosperity, health and happiness.

Best regards,

We enjoyed our meal at the Red Bean. Found the service excellent. The food was good but over priced. Had a large tax and service fee attached to our bill. In a city and country with such good food everywhere, how do you justify paying this amount?

Dear Jkmcm2014

Thank you for sharing your dining experience at our Red Bean restaurant with us and other food-lovers. We are extremely pleased to learn that you have liked the food and the excellent service provided by our dedicated team of staff. Meanwhile, we are quite concerned about your observation on the pricing and add-on tax.

As per our concept, we aimed to set up the Red Bean restaurant as a fine dining restaurant in town which introduces Vietnamese cuisine to travelers. In line with that, we have invested greatly finance in facility and quality. A team of professional chefs who have many years of experience in five star restaurants has also been recruited. Till now, we are delightful that our efforts have been recognized by many of travelers. In term of pricing concept, we have done several researches and comparison between ours and other similar standard restaurants in town. And, many of travelers have found our pricing very reasonable - you may consult the previous reviews on this travel site for your further reference.

There is a saying “all comparisons are lame”. If you choose to eat on the street where Vietnamese food is no doubt more authentic and cheaper than in a restaurant, you will find it lack of attentive service and atmosphere as well as the concern of hygiene. At our Hanoi Red Bean restaurant, the team of staff always strive to provide the best food with warmest and most attentive service.

Now days, the term “tax and service charge” exists in most businesses, especially in hospitality industry. Please, be confirmed that we must bear the tax as well to the local government. And, we feel reasonable that tax and service charge should be attach to the bill.

Anyway, we are sorry for having not entirely satisfied you. Please, rest assured that our management and staff always work harder to create comfortable and enjoyable experience for every single visit to our Red Bean restaurant. Look forward to having an opportunity to host your meal again in the upcoming future.

Best regards,
