The food here was well worth it, really tasty and fresh. Reading about how they give back to their community makes it even better. Lovely staff too.

“Simply the best restaurant in Sapa”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

There are many restaurants in Sapa which offer great food, no argument there. But Sapa Rooms really stands out because they offer delicious food AND know how to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, thanks to the lovely decorated interior.
But it comes down to the food eventually. It is all crispy fresh with beautiful flavors and just slightly more expensive than most of the other restaurants in town. Which is still extreme value for money for what you get. Next time I will book a room in their hotel as well. Treat yourself and pay this restaurant a visit!

Almost forgot, they serve big Tigers for just 25.000 dong!

“Warm and friendly, amazing food”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The best place we've come across in Sapa, a step up above the rest, with large menu of local and western food, big drink selection and even desserts.
Liked warmth of place, friendly helpful staff, and comfortable furniture.
Enjoyed the large portions of Vietnamese food. Came back twice.

“Such a great company to deal with for all your needs in Sapa!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We booked to stay at Sapa Rooms and their gorgeous Hmong Mountain Retreat just outside Sapa. We were also planning to go on some of the very interesting treks they organize (e.g. you can visit a village school). Unfortunately we got stuck on an island in a typhoon and couldn't make the trip! However, I am writing this review because the guy who runs this company with (Pete Wilkes) was SO efficient, organized and friendly in every single dealing with him - he seems to oversee, advise and custom-make each trip personally. He even sorted out a refund for us when we couldn't make the trip - even though we only cancelled on the day we were meant to travel there. The company also give money they make from the treks to support the local community.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We loved this place! Unfortunately the rooms were a bit too expensive. Budget for our trip, but the food is definitely worth. We especially fell in love with passion fruit and tasty muffin was still warm. Also recommendation is salad - very fresh, individual and delicious dressing. The fresh and individual Smooties and juices taste incredibly good. The atmosphere is very familiar - you sit with other guests at a large table. In addition, the restaurant is very nice and stylish - and invites you to "stay forever" And the beauty is that the restaurant supports minorities and forms.
