It's the Wandering Yank here. In my travels I've been to a number of museum cafes and restaurants, usually out of desperation. This was no different - it had been a long day of sightseeing and we were ready by early afternoon for some refreshment and comfortable chairs And we were very pleasantly surprised! Service was excellent and very attentive.... More

This little cafe in the grounds of the ethnic museum is just amazing. It's run by the Hoa Sua School for disadvantaged youth, who learn how to cook, serve and manage restaurants. And they are great at all they do. This has to be one of the best meals I have had in Vietnam. I sat outside under the shade... More

This review was really late. I have been here once before and the consistency was apparent. I enjoyed the coffee and chocolate confections. The outdoor seating at the museum was more pleasant for me. Definitely returning if I visit Hanoi again, though I may not visit the museum. 😇😄

We had a very relaxing a lengthy luncheon here as a nice break in our most enjoyable tour of the museum and exhibits. The food is pretty average and a little expensive but given it serves a 'captive audience' this was not a surprise. The facility serves to train young entrants to the world of hospitality and seems to do... More

Run by school students this restaurant was pleasantly peaceful. After looking through the Ethnology museum (the restaurant is inside the museum) we came to the restaurant and were served by lovely students. The food was very good offering french cuisine as well as traditional Vietnamese food. For drinks they had a wide variety of juices, alcohol, hot beverages and soft... More

I love the idea of students learning about the food industry by running a restaurant.after a lovely tour of the museum we stopped in here for lunch.straight away I knew something was wrong. There was one other couple in the restaurant but we were left for close to half an hour before the staff came to take our drink orders.... More

After visiting the inside of the Ethnology museum, I stopped for lunch in Baguette & Chocolat. The place is run by students, as some kind of training, and the food was just awesome! Very delicious, nice looking place, very friendly service, all this with a splendid view over the traditional Vietnamese houses that surround the Ethnology museum. Definitely recommended!

We tried a significant portion of the Vietnamese dishes and the stand outs would have to be: bun bo, grilled pork with spring rolls, pho ga oh and, the... More
