We stopped for coffee, beers and a snack after just arriving in Hanoi. Service is prompt and very friendly. The range of food for snacks or main meals is very good and was well cooked and very reasonable. Sit outside on the balcony and have views of the lake and the chaotic traffic.

They have wify...nice smiling people... But their greed and lack of professionality when ordering food is quite high. Don't order a juice unless you want an industrial supermarket juice... And don't ask for the yam potatoes with honey unless you are absolutely hungry, they are disgusting. The coffee was good. And they will charge an extra for services and taxes!... More

Its at a great location; excellent view of the lake if you sit on the balcony. Service was quick, with both vietnamese and international food. The sautéed Pho was hardly sautéed; more so it had beef instead of chicken mixed in it though we ordered chicken only. The fried spring rolls had enough oil dripping. More so they billed us... More

Bad view. Additionnaly, it is written in small characters on the menu that the prices does not include tax and service. Good way to abuse tourist that do not take care. It is not for the price but for the fact... Avoid that place and go somewhere else.

They never told us when we sat down that there would be a service charge and VAT. Food quality was low and prices were expensive. Would give this place a pass. Would have been nice if they had told you about the service charge when you sat down.

A reliable cafe with a good range of quality dishes both western and Vietnamese, and a great spot for tourists to enjoy a clean meal while watching the chaos on the streets below. One or two good Veg/Vegan option such as vegetable pho, salad and french fries and onion rings.

We went to Hanoi Soul Cafe after discovering it when exiting Highlands Coffee which is right next door. The menu looked good, and unlike some on the strip overlooking the lake it did have a huge selection of Vietnamese dishes rather than a combination of local and Western. This is what we look for when away, we have a rule... More

This is situated right next to the lake. There are many young people touting for business outside for the many restaurants over 5 floors, all with views of the lake. You decide by looking at the different cuisine menus before entering and then are shown to the correct floor. We chose this Vietnamese restaurant. It has a terrasse with a... More

My boyfriend and I came here on our first night in Hanoi. Within ten minutes of walking around in the old quarter, there was a storm. We were soaking wet and hungry, so decided we'd check out Hanoi soul cafe for some food and shelter. To my surprise, they sat us outside... I was really confused. Like hello? There's a... More

We had intended to sit in one of the restaurants/ bars on the front of the building so that we could look out onto the busy road below... but as we approached the entrance to the stairs we were approached by a number of restaurant touts... we followed one into the lift but when we saw the place decided to...
