I've only tried the tea from there, mail-ordered based on hearing about it in an online discussion of Vietnamese teas. The teas were great, some of the better ones I've tried, and I've been writing a blog about tea for two years now, so it's...More

The design of this cafe is unique; most suitable for couple. Tried their signature food but below par for me. Cafe design>> food, so comes to enjoy the environments instead.

It is very unfortunate that you did not enjoy your food as our staff endeavoured to be helpful by preparing something that was not on our menu to meet your specific requirements. It is not correct, in our opinion, that the fried rice did not...More

I went there for a quick dinner as it is close to my hotel. Very good food with some creativity, to change from "classical" local food. And of course very good tea!

Very good food, and not the standard tourist meals, maybe a little bit more expensive, but justified! Food around 100000-180000 dong:)

Hatvala is a stylish bistro restaurant, coffee shop and tea house in the heart of District 1. Our restaurant serves Vietnamese cuisine with international style presentation. We use fresh, local ingredients, do not use MSG and are light with salt and oil in our cooking. The restaurant style is all-day casual rather than fine dining but we offer a good value, varied and interesting menu including breakfasts, set lunches, soups, starters, mains, desserts and monthly or seasonal specials. A selection of beers and wine is also available. We also specialise in high quality, pure Vietnamese teas and coffee (some of which are organically produced) which you can enjoy on their own or with your meal. We offer a free tea tasting service subject to availability and sell tea leaves and coffee beans in packs to take away. We look forward to welcoming you.
