Came for a business lunch on Wednesday. The service was good, however the food portions were fairly small for the price they expect. The location is convenient for expats needing a place for a nice lunch with colleagues, and there are seats inside with air con, and outside in the shade and sun.

Average, since the food is a tad overpriced and the portions of chips very stingy. That is one thing that will review lose stars. I think that Asians don't realize that potatoes are our staple food.

Pleasantly surprised with the food and prices. A pleasant refuge from the Hanoi traffic. Relaxed atmosphere and surroundings. Our lunch of chicken club sandwich and chicken quesadilla was superbly presented and tasted very good. Two iced coffees took the total bill to 330,000 vnd ($USD 15.60).

I have been going there almost every day for a few years now but vowed not again. Why? Because every month for the past 6 months the portions sizes have shrunk and shrunk and shrunk again. They need to look at the total calorific content and judge for themselves. Some of the meals have been pressed to pass 200KCal. I... More

Not a bad place, pretty good food, English speaking staff, popular with expats, relaxed outdoor seating and good smoothies. Worth a visit for Lunch or Dinner. Not really cheap but reasonable prices and a pleasant atmosohere. One if the better lunch venues in this area. Nice cakes that are often half priced in the afternoon.

I had the feel of having lunch in canteen/ pantry but paying the price for a restaurant. The food is just ok but I can't say tasty. They offer a standard menu with a mixture of Italian and some Vietnamese dishes, nothing special. Services are kinda slow and unprofessional. It took us a while to be served as the waiter... More

This was one of the first places I have visited in Hanoi. I have not found anything as good till now. The food is excellent. I cannot stop eating their Australian burger. It is amusingly juicy and tender, cooked to perfection. Great fries come served with it. I was told by a colleague that they are having a cooking school... More
