I had marked this restaurant off of my list of places to visit do to the many recent negative reviews I read; however, it was very near to where we were staying, so we ended up eating there out of convenience. One thing you should know if you eat here is that the wait staff will expect you to somehow... More

It's a must try! Cake is moist and had e perfect amount of sweetness and crunch. We were sad to finish it. This place has a lovely laid back vibe and it's recommended as a lazy afternoon retreat from the never ending honking of e Hanoi streets

First of all my wife and I saw this place on trip advisor and were both looking forward to trying it out on our first morning in Hanoi given the great reviews it had recieved. We were the first people through the door and were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. We were then told that there... More

Went on our first day in Hanoi on the 19th only to be told that there was no food only Banh Mi being served which was fine but realised after that they simply went out to a street vendor and bought them and charged 3 times that amount to serve them on a plate! And obviously didn't say a word... More

We had heard great reviews of this place. Went there on 11.4.17, we were extremely hungry and told staff on arrival that we were after food and drink. Walked up 3 flights of stairs and sat down and then was told the kitchen was closed. We left as we needed food. Returned on 17.4.17 and sat on ground floor. Shown... More

So after looking on TripAdvisor at places to go, we saw a few bad reviews for this place recently however we were told about this place by friends who have been before so we still gave it a go. We knew the kitchen was closed but the staff made us fully aware of this as well. It was quiet when... More

Good - Lovely little house converted into a cafe, adorable furnishing, great place to just hang out with friends and listen to local musicians. Bad - Service! I read reviews before going there and thought I'd give them the benefit of doubt. Service is just miserably slow. Waiters are not coordinated at all - we had about 5 of them... More

Had to ask twice for every drink order, beer was served hot. Kitchen had been closed for about 4 days that we were there. They still served their specials off the menu (bun mi) but they quickly run out of the restaurant, ordered it at a street vendor and served it as their own and charged tripple the price. Egg...

Hi Hewan, I'm sorry you've chosen to be so harsh in your appraisal. The front page of our menu carefully explains in very large font that our kitchen is closed while it's being fixed and that we are working with local vendors so we can provide something instead of nothing. In fact the kitchen has only been closed for 1... More
