I have never walked out of a restaurant so frustrated. Food was poor, some dishes even inedible. When I explained this to the manager he just said "no" as if my opinion was invalid and passed me the cheque. No customer service at all. All in all worst experience.

Food was well below average. Wanted a top Vietnamese meal before leaving but left disappointed. Good view but below average food at high prices. Also prices don't include service charge AND vat. Kick in the teeth when the bill arrives after a poor meal. Red wine was also served fridge cold, utter madness.

We decided to try this place out because of the nice balcony we could see from the street. The view was the only thing good about this place.. The food we had was barely edible. We ordered as advertised "Vietnamese food" it was horrible. The chicken dishes we ordered had big pieces of gristle and were battered and tasted of... More

Enjoyed a couple of drinks on the patio of this restaurant. The view over the lake is lovely. Great watching life passing by in the street below.

The only advantage of this restaurant is that it's open till late in the evening and in fact it was the main reason we choose this restaurant, However I did not enjoy the food and the service at all.

Be careful with your credit here as in many places in Vietnam. They tried to double charge my food bill .

We have ordered two pho bo (2 portions), I had to wait for more then 10 minutes, the coffee was terrible as long as hot chocolate. Beef in the soup was fatty and actually it was not a beef) As a summary we asked a bill, without prior notification we also had to pay VAT and service %. I also... More

After walking the busy streets of hanoi and still feeling a bit worse for wear (only our 3rd day could be the jetlag could be over indulgence!!) we decided for a rooftop coffee. We'd seen this place a few times walking around and thought the view of the lake would be good. We actually ventured into Highland coffee first but... More

We decided to go here as it was close to the water puppets show. Having looked at the menu thought it would fit the bill. On getting to the third floor the drab and lacklustre interior should have sent us on our way however we sat. Food was average to poor, we also had incorrect food delivered. Was pricey for... More

You dont go to Hanoi to avoid heavy noise, and you dont go to a restaurant with a owner yelling and shouting commands to a scared and stresset youg staff.When I in a polite way asked thats if he could not stop we had to leave. He was angry, but shut down. Unfortunately we din not leave, because the dinner... More
