We called into this bar/restaurant one evening whilst in Hanoi and enjoyed drinks overlooking Hoan Kiem lake. Atmosphere was pleasant and it was great to be sat outside in March (as it was still winter weather at home in UK).

I stumbled across this place and decided to eat here because I was short on time and it was convenient. I have to say that the only thing going for this restaurant is the incredible view overlooking the lake. My meal looked like dog food, it was pretty unappetizing and the bread was disappointingly stale. If there's anything positive I... More

We chose this place because it was convenient and we were tired and hungry. Bad mistake! The table was dirty, staff weren't interested in serving us and the food wasn't very good.

Staff are terribly rude, they offer no welcoming or kind customer service. The PowerPoint they sat me by wasn't working and even when I asked they refused to help me with plugging it into a different PowerPoint. The food may be average (much better else where) but simply because of the manner of all staff working it is so not... More

We went here to spend a couple pf hours we had before the puppet show right opposite. The place is a giant waste of a fabulous location. The area outside, by the lake hasn't seen any uplift probably since vietnam war. The wall had moulds, the floor is wet and muddy and one feels transparent in this place. The staff... More

The food was disgusting. Soggy uncooked pizza dough, mushy vegetables, poor quality of meat, no flavour, and very slow and inattentive service.

After a long walk, this place looked inviting. The lady server left us because our ordering was taking a while (place was almost empty that time). My lemon chicken was lacking in flavor although you get good chicken pieces. My friend's beef with pepper sauce was swimming in the brown sauce but did not have any pepper flavor. Meat needed...

Lovely setting by the lake. Plenty of fans to keep you cool. My meal was the best Vietnamese meal I had had during our stay in Vietnam. My husband fed of "rice and noodles" ordered a beef. Burger, which he enjoyed. Staff friendly and not over attentive.

Walked into this place despite the food being overpriced due to the beautiful lake view. Ordered two Vietnamese meals. Both really tastless. Spring rolls had been flash fried and the batter was undercooked on the inside. Deeply dissappointed as it was our last meal in Hanoi. Waiter service was appalling. Nobody was smiling. Nobody tried to be friendly or acccomodate... More
