We have been in Asia for 2 months and needed a break from fish sauce and noodles so we came here for lunch and we were so glad we did!! Continental food can be a risky choice here but it blew us away. We ordered...More

Because I read the review that this place is good so I went and tried their lunch package. I had a three-course menu: appetizer, main, and desert. I ordered carpaccio as my main course and it is good and fresh as any respectable restaurant should’ve...More

Sure there wasn't many Vietnamese in the place but I can see the reason now. The value was just too terrible, for a fine dining price tag ($70/pax), you don't get "fine dining" feeling at all. Not recommended, there're better place to be in Hanoi.

3 courses lunch costs 395,000 VND , and my hubby went for a special 4 courses lunch with a glass of white wine costs 690,000 VND. I would say my 3 courses lunch is just superb value, very delicious food and with good atmosphere. Definitely...More

It's not easy to find this little French pearl in Hanoi's business district. Google Map is recommended. We enjoyed some Vietnamese food at a nearby restaurant and then went to La Badiane for sweets. A trio of classical musicians playing violins were at it when...More

We've lived in Hanoi for 4 months, and had wonderful street and restaurant food. The only glaring exception is La Badiane. It was shockingly terrible for a renown French restaurant that was twice as expensive as comparable restaurants. We were with another couple, and between...More

This place is for fine dining and the degustation menu is a good way to go. Interior is comfortable and staff is well trained with a watching manager walking around doubtless sizing the guests. There were few Vietnamese to be seen. The degustation menu was...More

The food is good, yes, though way too fussy and the staff are also overly attentive though charming. Good for a slightly funereal couples' dinner but not for a rowdy jarathon

This was a very nice restaurant with great and friendly staff. Quiet and relaxed, not overdone. Our waiter, Truong was very helpful in pulling together a great meal based on our likes and dislikes. The meal was paced wonderfully, allowing us to enjoy each course...More

Founded in December 2008, La Badiane -French for Star Anise spice- is heralding its claim to be one of the best restaurants in Vietnam, dedicated to fusion of flavors and international gastronomy.

As reference, La Badiane is rated top 500 Restaurants in Asia by The Miele Guide, has been recommended by The New York Times, and has received 5 consecutive Certificates of Excellence by Trip Advisor -since 2011. Indeed, with more than 300 upvotes as “EXCELLENT”, La Badiane knows a high rating deserved to top-end restaurants.

Yet, if most is about tastes, fusion of flavors and international gastronomy, great attention is also constantly paid to the quality of the service provided as well as to the overall atmosphere, so guests have a unique culinary experience by enjoying every aspect of their meal.

When coming in, one’s attention is instantly caught by the multitude of perfumes & aromas flowing out from the open front kitchen.

The entrance corridor planted with harmonious luxuriant vegetation leads you towards the heart of the restaurant, and its glass covered patio. Surrounded by carefully chosen leaf plants, walls predominantly white, and large B&W photo portraits, the place provides for a true feeling of calm and elegance.

The combination of tablecloths, two-color curtains, and the green vegetation gathers all conditions to let guests’ visual and gustative senses fully express themselves. The attentive and discreet lightening in the evening makes it very romantic, and live classic music concerts every Wednesday evening levels-up La Badiane restaurant to turn it into a complete place.

On the upper floor, two rooms available provide for perfect intimate spaces, appropriate for guests either looking for privacy, or mid-size groups wishing to enjoy a private lunch or dinner on a special occasion.

As opposed to the ground floor and its B&W photos, the first floor presents large-size color portraits. A must-see.
