Visited here for dinner and sat on the small terrace upstairs and had a good quality meal - tenderloin beef and some Hanoi beer in a cheap and cheerful ambience watching the world walk by outside. The bar also sells Vietnamese food, is unpretentious and good value for money. I'd visit again.

Found this gem of a bar just down the road from our hotel. It is on the 1st floor level and has a balcony overlooking the busy street. A great place to people watch. The food is good and plentiful and the drinks are reasonably priced. Ive would go back again, oh we did the following day.

Came here after coming off a flight and after checking into a hotel so we were very hungry. Even so, I didnt finish any of my food. I had a chicken curry which was pointless. There was bits of chicken, carrot and potato floating in a substance which was like soup. It reeked of coconut and had no curry flavour... More

The breakfast here was full of variation and value for money . We also ate dinner here one night which was satisfying and delicious . Upstairs has a lovely balcony which is good for watching life on the streets while eating . The thing I really liked was the staff they were genuinely helpful and friendly .

We were walking the smaller streets looking for an interesting place for dinner, by chance we looked up and spotted a balcony overlooking the street full of people. We are glad we went up, tasty green mango salad, nice chicken fried rice, and I tried the famous Hanoi dish Bun Cha. All dishes very reasonable prices and a great spot... More

We chose to eat here because of the chance to sit upstairs and watch the bustling Old Quarter, and I love the craftsman-style finishings. My husbands seafood noodles were bland and my chicken curry was very stringy and tough. We asked for banana fritters for dessert but the waitress, who was just about the most reluctant and bored waitress I've... More

I pretty much spend few hours here everyday, at the cosy balcony overlooking the street. Not a busy street but you get to see everything about Hanoi here i.e. Street vendors, bikes, push carts, etc,. Serves good food at very reasonable price. This place is just steps away from my hotel, Artisan Lakeview.

A little bit hidden street with nice hotels, restaurants and shops. Here in this restaurant they serve everything you want. Just ask 😉 For a quick bite the cheese burger is good, but also the Pho Bo is good.

This place has a small balcony overlooking the street below, perfect for people watching in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Service was friendly and efficient. They serve a mixture of Vietnamese and Western food all at reasonable prices. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the world go by whilst eating our food.

We were drawn to the cosy balcony from across the road. Two likely lads relaxing out the front struck up a conversation with us. Turns out they're from our home turf in Oz.. and the owners. We were pleasantly surprised by the prices on the menu so thought we'd give our neighbours some custom. So happy we did! All of... More
