Only had fries and mushroom taco things from this place as it was a cheeky beer stop but the chips were a must try. Reminded me of home cooked chips.

5 stars!

I had vegan mushroom pasta and my friend had lentil pasta (both spaghetti) and they were both amazing. Lots of veggie choices, staff are so lovely and speak very good English. I also had a gluten free chocolate cake for dessert which was lovely. Highly recommend. The vibe was great as well, very cosy

Amazing sandwich

Had the daily special which was a salt & pepper tofu sandwich which was incred !!! So much flavour and a massive portion. The coffee was really good too and the vibe of the whole place was great. Quite expensive though.

Place beautiful, food ok

Staff was really friendly. Some vegan dishes, but the food was only ok I would say. The vegan pasta with mushroom was creamy, but I didn’t quite like the mushrooms. Quite pricy for Vietnam, I paid 140.000 for the noodles.
I liked the place, nice vintage look.

Beautiful rooftop

I really liked the rooftop garden, was a nice place to spent some time and drinks some drinks, I can really recommend the lime and mint slushy !! We ate the veggie burger (ask for them to make it vegan) and the vegan lasagne. I really liked the burger, the lasagne was alright- you’ll love it if you like eggplant! The staff was very very friendly!

Mediocre food

Once I arrived in Hanoi around 2015 the food used to be good. Now, I don't go back here anymore as the food became very mediocre.
The last time I took a veggie burger. There was absolutely no flavor on it. Also the polenta fries were very tasteless. I didn't finish my meal, it was super disappointing.
Also they have never updated the menu since I first came there. It seems like they do not want to improve.

Pros: Great variety of veg options

Cons: Flavorless

Good food but nothing extraordinary

I had pasta with lentils, it was good, but really nothing special. They have a traditional Vietnamese coconut spring roll - very nice! Also good wine

Good restaurant

The staff is really friendly, helpful and speaks English. It is possible to veganize the veggie burger if you ask. The food is really tasty and the portions are huge.

Cozy hideaway

I love the feel of this restaurant. I went up to the third floor "Gypsy Camp" which I had all to myself. Ordered the vegan lasagne which was huge and tasted great, along with the tempe sandwich. It was good but the bread was very oily.

Cons: 355vnd for two dishes and a drink.

Restaurant itself is lovely, you probably wouldn’t stumble across it though. This place offers meat and can make most veggie dishes, vegan and they have healthy options. The food itself is really nice and the portions are big. They even do a vegan dessert, have lovely drinks too! They have an aircon area, a little shop and good WiFi. Would deffo recommend!

Pros: Tasty food , Healthy options

Massive portions and excellent atmosphere!

My boyfriend and I visited here twice during our stay in Hanoi. The first time I had the veggie burger and the second time we both had vegan lasagne. All delicious! The vegan lasange portion was huge! They also have tofu chips available as a snack which looked a bit like plain Doritos and went really well with a beer! Their black iced Vietnamese coffee was intense (in a good way). It's very strong and you get a mini jug of sugar syrup to sweeten it to your taste. I was flagging when we went in to the restaurant after a long day sight seeing but that coffee perked me up almost instantly! It is not for the faint hearted! We also had a yummy snack which was basically coconut and sugared sesame seeds wrapped in ?rice paper. There were perfect paired with the coffee!

Would give 5/5 but HappyCow won't allow me to because they're not a fully vegan/vege establishment.

Pros: Really nice decor/vibe, Decent portions and really tasty, Air conditioning!

Cons: More expensive than some places but worth it!

Ok food and atmosphere but expensive and chaotic

The place could be really nice, but lacks in vegan options... the soy milk was clumpy. It was pretty crowded and a bit chaotic due to wrong orders etc. The staff was exceptionally friendly. As a vegan there are better places for a better price. But the menu looked good and interesting for non-vegans.

Pros: Atmosphere , Staff

So good!

Small cute little Cafe. Just devoured the tempeh rueben sandwich which I really enjoyed and hubby as a meat eater ordered the chicken laksa which he also enjoyed. My entire vietnam trip has been spring rolls, noodles, vegetables rice and tofu or vegetable banh mi so this was a great change. Ordered the vegan pavlova also as rarely eat dessert and fid not dissapoint.

Pros: A few vegan options easily identified from menu

Veg friendly

Splendid place to dine and unwind. Love the fact that they owners leave random musical instruments at the punters whim to pick up and play. Food is excellent, from the chia pudding bowls to the savoury rice, bean and avocado dishes.

Great atmosphere, great staff. Definitely a place you stay a while at. LGBT-friendly space. The roof area was great. I had the vegan lasagna which wasn't as great as I'd hoped, but I got a lot of it. Lots of greens on the side too. Definitely worth the money. Has gluten-free options too, which is great. Mot of the people there seemed to be couples on date night.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan options, LGBT-friendly space, Great atmosphere

Good western vegan options

Great if you feel like a break from Vietnamese food. Good atmosphere. Had the falafel sandwich and it was tasty. Menu had a vegan lasagne (among other options) which I wish I had a chance to try.
