I went here on a recommendation. They have amazing architecture and decor. The Vietnamese buffet gave a sampling of many options and they were served in a high end style. I enjoyed my visit very much. They also have an international buffet that I did not have the opportunity to try.

Wide variety of foods from starter to deserts , amazing . Also they had separate area for BBQ. The ambiance and architecture is good also there is a small souvenir shop and very busy with a lot of tourists. People who love Asian food, definitely needs to go there once, if they are visiting Hanoi.
