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

This place has a little terrace overlooking the busy street below. The service is efficient. I had a wonderful green mango salad which was really delicious. We went back for breakfast though and I had a really bad egg hollandaise. Not off, but really unpleasant. So I think the food can be a bit hit and miss. Recommended though.

Great cafe owned by Australians. All food prepared to Australian standards. Next door to Artisan Boutique Motel. Vietnamese and Australian menu, large variety, all day breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice coffee and range of sweets and cakes. Menu includes cocktails and mocktails at excellent prices. Staff friendly and courteous at all times, great value for money.

The Buon dua le cafe was located across the street from our hotel (heart hotel), which was very convenient. Myself, wife and 7 year old twin daughters eat here twice whilst staying in Hanoi. The restaurant is upstairs and also has a balcony (you can sit inside or outside on the balcony) The staff were very helpful and friendly and... More
