The central view restaurant is part of the Marvel hotel in Hanoi, which you have to go through the lobby to access the lift to the restaurant. In the lobby the friendly receptionist chatted to us while guiding us to the restaurant and bar. It's...quite an impressive hotel. The restaurant is separate to the rooftop bar but you can dine in both. We had a drink before and after dinner in the rooftop bar but chose not to eat in the bar as it was quite a hot and humid evening. Down a short flight of stairs is the restaurant. It's not a large restaurant but there is a high class feel to it, but none of us or most other diners were not overdressed, just the usual shorts and shirt, others were in t-shirts. Coming from the bar, the restaurant was noticibly cooler from an ac point of view, perhaps too cold so if you don't like it too cool then something to cover up wouldn't go a miss. It was our last night in Hanoi so both the bar and restaurant were great places to relax and enjoy our last evening. The staff are very friendly and attentive but not over the top. The food in the restaurant was very good, particularly for the price. These are not backpacker prices but they're not Ritz prices either, particularly given the setting. We all shared a couple of starters, 5 mains and a round of 5 drinks for around 40 euros, incredibly good value. On leaving the waitress gave us each a set of souvenir chopsticks, which was such a nice touch! So, if you fancy a high class night in Hanoi, but without extravagant prices then the central view hotel and rooftop bar is the place to go.More

Evan if you do not staying at the J.M Marvel I recommend you try out the restaurant on the 6th floor as the food is authentic and of the highest calibre served by friendly knowledgable staff always with a wining smile and my special thanks...to Walter for his service. Andrew BuffeyMore

Best Vietnamese food we had on our trip! Food was full of flavour, and the portions were generous. Chris Nyugen and his team were fabulous. Quick and friendly service! Outstanding hospitality! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We dined here on a Saturday evening at around 9pm. My partner ordered a sky bar special cocktail and I ordered a beer. Her cocktail was supposed to have chillies in it but didn’t have any kick so she was a little disappointed. We ordered...the bun bo nam bo (beef noodles) and a pork belly dish with pepper and spring onions. We needed to ask for extra chillies for the beef as it was a little bland. For me, the pork dish was overly salty but by partner enjoyed both dishes, hence the 3.5 rating as I was disappointed. Perhaps just a bad choice of meals. The restaurant was also practically empty so lacked any atmosphere. Having previous read the TA reviews I was underwhelmed unfortunately.More

We enjoyed a superb meal in Central View restaurant at the JM Marvel Hotel. We had pre-booked and were warmly received and invited to have a drink at the rooftop bar before dinner. For dinner,we were shown to our table, where we enjoyed the most...amazing Vietnamese food. Our starters were 'Nem rán Hà Nội –Hanoi Spring Rolls' and 'Chả lá lốt thịt heo: Fried minced pork wrapped in piper lolot.'. Then our main courses: 1) 'Sườn non sốt me –Stir-Fried Pork Rib With tamarind' and 2) 'Cá thu sốt cà chua: Cooked codfish with tomato.' Everything had amazing flavours and the service was ever so friendly. This was a great value restaurant, bearing in mind the quality of our food. The surroundings were top class We highly recommend Central View Restaurant & Rooftop.More

Recent visit to Central View. Went for the bar, stayed for the food! Service was excellent, drinks and food amazing. I had the traditional grilled fish fish and my husband had (I think) a beef dish - both great but the fish was the standout....Well priced for one of the ‘nice’ restaurants. Would go again if we were to return to Hanoi.More

Delicious food, great service from friendly staff and an interesting view from the 8th floor. The wine was good also. The prices were higher than average for Vietnam but still very affordable compared to most western countries.More

Cannot fault the service at Central View, however the food wasn't as good as I was expecting. We went on a recommendation from a friend but we've had better food for less cost in Hanoi. Possibly we were unlucky with our choice of dishes but...in particular the stir fry vermicelli with crab meat was not good. The prawn clay pot was a lot better but still not amazing. A shame given the great service and the restaurant itself has nice decor, although the couples' tables are way too close together when there is space available to separate them a bit further.More
