“We fell in love...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

With the amazing banana shrimp spring rolls and had to have two orders.. We loved sitting outside and sipping Rice wine (hootch) and apple wine (tastier hootch) and watching the tourists, locals and H'mong people walk by. The staff were warm and friendly and the food , amazing.. I think we had the best pizza we've had in Asia at Fansipan Restaurant. We rate the food, the view, and the staff excellent.. Careful with the rice wine tho, it packs a delightful punch.

“Loved this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were here every night of our 5 day stay in Sapa. We loved the location on the main street and the outdoor seating so we could have a drink and watch the world of Sapa go by - the H'mong and the tourists. We loved the cheap local rice wine and apple wine...very strong though, not really like wine, more like moonshine! LOL Give the banana/shrimp springrolls a taste...so good we had them every day. The pizza if you are in the mood for something non Vietnamese is also excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant, the staff was friendly and cheerful.

“Pretty Average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten fantastic food throughout Vietnam. But not here. Not only was the food bland, the service was excruciatingly slow and at the end the bill was not commensurate with the experience. Go somewhere else.

Terrible food, extremely slow service, overpriced tourist trap . Should have taken time to read the previous reviews.
