I'm a simple man - I love my coffee. Yes, being from Melbourne makes us unique that way as we're probably the most picky coffee drinkers in the world which is why Lindt and McDonald's both started their first cafes there. The Lavazza sign is a welcome sight as I don't want the Vietnamese moccasins style coffee in the morning.... More

Don't have to think too hard to choose a mix of Westerner and Asian food when having a group of friends/business partners to come along - here you go. Right in the centre, so it's good to come for dinner so can go to the old quarter for a wonder. Quite easy to get what you want as staff are... More

If like me , after a week here, you are looking for something with a little less carb, this could be your place. I ordered Thai beef salad and the twist was the addition of pineapple. Sounds a bit strange but was actually very nice. Added points given because I was looking for a WC and they gave me the... More

The place is in a mall. We went there because we couldn't find a restaurant to eat in. I got a burger and without exaggeration it was the worst burger I ever had. The prices are also ridiculously high. Would not recommend anyone to go here.

We were hungry for pizza & lasagna; had both and Panini; service good; food tasty with lotsa cheese, but not Panini or lasagna you'd expect. Decent price.

Papa Joe's offers both western foods and very tasty Vietnamese dishes, which are served by a very friendly & courteous wait staff (English speakers too). Bun Cha, Pho, and Bun Bo Nam Bo are on their menu, with burgers, pasta, fries, and other foods for visitors who might be desiring a taste from "back home". Their dishes are made with... More

Papa Joe's is a small place located on the ground floor of the Hanoi Towers/Somerset Grand Hanoi hotel complex. They serve good caffeinated drinks (including espresso) and other hot/cold beverages, along with an array of reasonably-priced food items (Vietnamese + western cuisine, including sandwiches, pizza, etc. for those visitors desiring a "taste of home") that include desserts as well.
