“Lovely restaurant... With TASTY burgers!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Opposite the Sapa Lodge Hotel, Sapa Essence restaurant offers travellers what they've been craving since leaving home - a tasty, homemade burger! With a crispy bread bun, the tasty meat patty was deliciously cooked with egg, bacon, mayo and salad-type-shenanigans that burgers seem to warrant. With a side order of chips and ketchup included, it was a taste of home, and supping the local Lao Cai beer (and later several Hanoi's) a very enjoyable meal. The better half had a veggie noodle dish and was very tasty, too. They also offer pasta dishes and, of course, a bevvy of Vietnamese dishes too. What a lovely restaurant! And the price is ever so reasonable (i.e. cheap!). Don't be tempted with the 'Set Meals' offerings of the lesser establishments... This one's the REAL DEAL.

“I'm here right now...”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

And the owner is taking time to tell us about all the different treks available in the area and what the must see places are. Great coffee, great atmosphere and extremely friendly staff! A very cool place in Sapa!

“Sapa Essence restaurant ”

Excellent food and atmosphere, lovely way to spend a chilled afternoon after hiking and before the night train. Tuna sandwich and Russian salad were both yummy! Highly recommended.

“Great Atmosphere, Service and Food”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

New restaurant that was recommended to us. We had a beautiful meal there where we shared coconut chicken curry cooked and served in a coconut, as well as pork with cardoman & beef with lemongrass and chilli. Complimentary caramelised bananas for dessert as well. We also enjoyed a great variety of yummy cocktails. Cosy atmosphere and very polite and helpful staff, who could speak good English. Everything was great, would definitely recommend visiting if you are staying in Sapa.
