Very enjoyable meal with stunning presentation. Food was excellent. Loses one point for the slow service, however. I think they were understaffed but for the price you pay I expected better service standards.

Best French in Hanoi that I have visited ever! I always selected a course (two choices of appetiser and main) for lunch. Very satisfied with good quality of dishes and peaceful atmosphere.

社内懇親で利用しました。 個室を利用、料理はコースで美味しいです。 残念なのが、ビールが缶でありあまり冷えていないこと。早急にボトルビール、生ビールサーバーを入れた方が良いかと思う。 There are only can beer and sometimes not cold.Better to serve draft and bottle.

Prawn bisque and scallop dinner were excellent. Attentive service in a nice setting. All the sauces were intricate and well balanced. Wine menu is a bit limited and pricey, but we found a good match. Very nice evening.

After reading the reviews online we had high hopes for this place. Went with a group and decided to go all out with the six course degustation. While the presentation was quite good, overall the dishes were average and not up to fine dining standard....More

Founded in December 2008, La Badiane -French for Star Anise spice- is heralding its claim to be one of the best restaurants in Vietnam, dedicated to fusion of flavors and international gastronomy. As reference, La Badiane is rated top 500 Restaurants in Asia by The Miele Guide, has been recommended by The New York Times, and has received 5 consecutive Certificates of Excellence by Trip Advisor -since 2011. Indeed, with more than 300 upvotes as “EXCELLENT”, La Badiane knows a high rating deserved to top-end restaurants. Yet, if most is about tastes, fusion of flavors and international gastronomy, great attention is also constantly paid to the quality of the service provided as well as to the overall atmosphere, so guests have a unique culinary experience by enjoying every aspect of their meal. When coming in, one’s attention is instantly caught by the multitude of perfumes & aromas flowing out from the open front kitchen. The entrance corridor planted with harmonious luxuriant vegetation leads you towards the heart of the restaurant, and its glass covered patio. Surrounded by carefully chosen leaf plants, walls predominantly white, and large B&W photo portraits, the place provides for a true feeling of calm and elegance. The combination of tablecloths, two-color curtains, and the green vegetation gathers all conditions to let guests’ visual and gustative senses fully express themselves. The attentive and discreet lightening in the evening makes it very romantic, and live classic music concerts every Wednesday evening levels-up La Badiane restaurant to turn it into a complete place. On the upper floor, two rooms available provide for perfect intimate spaces, appropriate for guests either looking for privacy, or mid-size groups wishing to enjoy a private lunch or dinner on a special occasion. As opposed to the ground floor and its B&W photos, the first floor presents large-size color portraits. A must-see.
