This was the only terrible meal we had in three weeks in Vietnam - and the most expensive. We had not eaten all day and we all enjoy our food - but none of us could eat our meals. The fish was inedible, the chicken curry dire. None of the wine advertised was available. The waitress disappeared off on her... More

We happened upon La by accident whilst trying to find an evening meal that would suit my Gluten Free, coeliac wife. The host and chef at La were very accomodating, and we had a lovely traditional Vietnamese meal. We would recommend La for a very good, quiet meal.

This is a small attractive restaurant and bar in the heart of Hanoi's Hoan Kiem tourist district. Wanting a break from 9 straight days of noodles, delicious though they were, a menu that had farfalle with shrimp and capers and medallions of pork in a mustard sauce looked appealing. Wine by the glass was also available, served in generous wine... More

I was thoroughly disappointed with the Sea Bass dish. Rarely do I send a meal back but the fish was extremely smelly and the black sauce smeared on it was dreadful. Completely inedible. It made me wonder if the fish came from West Lake. I am wondering if this restaurant has new owners.

We enjoyed this restaurant with its fine dining. We only had desert here but it was unique and of a high class. We all had something different all the quality was exquisite. Well worth a visit.

Was apprehensive about going in here but I am glad I did. The food was really good. The spring rolls were tasty and so was the chicken curry. It became quite busy as we were dining. There were French people dining here and for me that's always a good sign. They seemed happy with the food so that's also a... More

This was so far our worst food experience in Vietnam. The pork ribs were raw and the noodles were tasteless. We really don't recommend this restaurant.

Called in here for lunch while sightseeing around the lake - mainly based on recommendation from our guide book. Had pho and a chicken curry plus a (expensive) glass of red and some water. The red wine was pretty good so didn’t mind the price, pho was reasonably good, chicken curry wasn't the best. Reminded me of my mother's stewed... More
