Should have made a reservation but they fitted us in. We were at the front but not neglected. The waitress could not have been more helpful giving us invaluable advice as to what and how much we should order. The result was delicious and delightful.

We visited this restaurant 3 times while in Hanoi. Food and variety was excellent and our waitress Rose offered great suggestions and service. A meal here is a must. Cocktails and drinks were delicious.

No, it had fans and when it was 38 degrees outside it was cooler inside. The food was great and we had hot soup first, you will enjoy the food. 😅
