Good food, very good friendly service and staff are great. Happy to tell you about the food how it's prepared and what the best options are.
Food is out in good times, tastes great and it seems the staff and chef really care about what the customers think.

I visited this restaurant a number of years ago and had very fond memories of the meal. With this in mind my wife and I returned recently to find the same high quality experience. My wife had the Beef in Bamboo and was very happy, she is very particular about food so a good review from her is high praise indeed. I had the Tamarind fish which was also sensational. We shared a pineapple crepe for dessert which was also very good. The service was also excellent, friendly as well as attentive. The restaurant's ambience was also very good. This was easily the best place we ate in Vietnam, not cheap by Vietnamese standards but an absolute bargain when compared to restaurants in Australia when taking into account the excellent standard of the meal.

The best meal we had in Hanoi, hands down. Everything we had was delicious (imperial spring rolls, green papaya beef salad, Vietnamese rice pancake, Tamarind shrimps) and their dipping sauce was by far the tastiest I’ve ever tried! Staff could not have been nicer, very helpful and lovely!

Food was excellent quality meats and veggie and very tasty but very much western style. It’s part of a hotel and the staff are extremely nice.
