Emperor Restaurant

Emperor restaurant

Why do people always say go to the Emperor Restaurant? Because, it’s won the best fine dining awards for Hanoi several times. That's a good reason. The restaurant is so beautiful and you can choose to sit in their old wooden house called the Patio or in the very nice garden between the bar and the old French building. Also, there is the nice narrow balcony looking down over the lovely garden. It is such a nice space and design to have a good relaxing time here with very well trained staff who respect customers space.

Hue fried spring rolls-Emperor rest

The food is delicious with the highlight being the salads and spring rolls, especially the fried spring rolls in the Hue style or soft shell crab with onion sauce and green papaya salad. If you are a fan of poultry, try the grilled chicken with lemongrass or stir fried duck with tamarind sauce, this is a little bit sweet but it’s really nice.

Whatever you choose from this menu is going to be spot on. Just go! One more important thing is you need to make a reservation in advance or you have to drink quite a few drinks at a very nice bar waiting for your turn.

They have live traditional music every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday night in the garden and flamengo peformances on Tuesday and Friday in the bar.
