our family usually have buffe here as there are a wide range variety both Vietnamese and Western food. Yummy and freshy food with reasonable price. Clean and spacious restaurants. near the Lake and water park. a bit far from city centre. It seems busier in the weekend and lots of tourists groups arranged by travel agencies.

Very popular for local population and visitors. Great atmosphere. Well-spread buffet providing a wide variety of eating options. Added entertainment also supplements the eating experience.

Foods offered in this restaurant are so amazing. I was served both Vietnamese foods and Japanese foods when I was there. Vietnamese dishes impressed me much. Friendly staffs, reasonable prices and really nice views. Good to come and enjoy buffet with friends or family.

Big selection, tasty dishes, great indoor outdoor setting and if you're lucky the live band about 20 metres away. Had an amazing, enjoyable night here and highly recommend it. Have been to other buffets in Hanoi for the same price and this 1 would def be on top of the list

I have tried many times in Sen Tay Ho Buffet Restaurant with friends, family or for official function. The foods are very good to taste (local cuisines and international cuisines). Sen Tay Ho serves many kind of Vietnamese traditional foods (hot and quite delicious). Seafood is fresh (no king crabs!). Drinks are good, reasonable prices (don't bring your drink in,... More

Vietnamese buffet. Not the best you can find in Hanoi. You should try some place else. Stay away. Here with a group of friends and most of them didn't like it.

Sen Tay Ho on West Lake --near the Hanoi Water Park--, in my view, is a must-visit buffet restaurant in Hanoi. The restaurant offers an abundance of food, all you can eat for about $16/person, from fresh seafood to sushi to most of the popular Vietnamese street food that you would see around Hanoi, in addition to its full salad...

Except for the typical rotten, out of control Asian kids, a very good experience indeed. Maybe harsh on the kids, but nonetheless, Asian parents seem to always let them run around and do whatever they want.

One of the biggest buffet in Vietnam if not the world. Featuring six dining rooms each serving approx 300 people. Imagine that huge number all walking about hundreds of food selections. You will be overwhelmed unsure what to choose and what they are. Choose to avoid rush hours and hollidays if you want to relax and dine leisurely. Sen Ly... More
