I have a good impression on Ciao. I love ice cream with rum and dried grapes there, and it's my habit to visit Ciao whenever I am near Hoan Kiem Lake. I highly recommend this shop for coffee, ice creams.

Nothing here to get excited about. Staff were a little on the slow side, but the tet holiday may have been the reason. The food was ok, but have had better. Price wise was ok.

We stopped for a drink and scored a front table to watch the world and lots of traffic go by. Sadly our experience was spoilt by what I perceive to be racism. We were asked once to move tables after a group of locals arrived....More

One of our first meals in Hanoi and one of the nicest Vietnamese meals eaten during our 3 week stay in Vietnam.

This is a very beautil restaurant with high ceilings, beautiful drapes, aubergine walls, varous styles of period European furniture...an eclectic mixture of styles that really works. The food is both Vietnamese and western. Downstairs is more like a cafe with fabulous desserts. Staff are very classy. The only fault is the horrible smoking at tables which doesnt happen in Australia any more. I't is a great restaurant not far from the Lake in Hanoi.
