This is one of the most luxury and upmarket Vietnamese restaurants in Hanoi at its highest quality of food and service. Located in the heart of the city, near Hanoi Opera House and Metropole Hotel, Club De L’Oriental’s location is ideal for transportation and sightseeing.
This is upscale Vietnamese food at its best -- beautiful colonial decor, properly trained staff, and amazing food. The fresh spring rolls are the best in town, though I can never choose between those and the deep-fried Imperial-style spring rolls, so I often order both and end up stuffing myself before the entrees arrive. For mains, I highly recommend the grilled chicken in lemon leaves served with a dipping plate of salt and pepper in a sprinkle of lime juice, a light but savory dish. On the richer side, try the sautéed prawns in tamarind sauce. The main floor has a handful of tables set up around an open kitchen, seats around which are perfect for couples or single diners. For an intimate but chilly experience, reserve a table in the wine cellar.
Menu of the restaurant comprises of best taste Vietnamese foods, among them, must-try dishes are deep-fried Imperial-style spring rolls, grilled chicken in lemon leaves, sautéed prawns in tamarind sauce and caramelized mango flambé with liqueur for dessert. Besides, the L’Oriental has a bar with 10,000 bottles of wine of different types which is one of the largest wine bars in the South East Asia.
Due to the upscale quality, prices to be gods in this heaven are not cheap, vary between US$45 - $65 for a full set of both main dishes and drink.
