Without doubt the worst level of service I have experienced in Hanoi.

Went here today as a group of 5 on a 1 hour lunch break from work.

Their menu was limited to a selection of breakfasts (upon asking we were told "yes, breakfast AND lunch") with some soups and salads. We ordered drinks, mainly juices and smoothies. BIG mistake. I think they only have 1 blender so it took them about 20-25 minutes to bring just the drinks (and then they were confused about what had been ordered). At the time we were worrying about the food because we had to be back at work.

The food turned out to be the biggest disappointment. We had ordered 2 x beef stews, 2 x chicken salads and 2 x pumpkin soups. The waitress came back after 5 minutes to say there was no chicken and that they would do us tuna salads instead. 1 tuna salad arrived and the other one didn't even though the waitress had said 2 when she had repeated the order back to us. We had heard crashing coming from the kitchen so we can only assume that they had dropped it or something. The waitress then came to say that they were out of pumpkin soup 40 MINUTES AFTER we had originally ordered it. One friend who had ordered the soup and a tuna salad was left without food because they were out of soup and the salad never came. The other friend who had ordered the soup attempted to order an egg dish instead but the waitress didn't understand his question about whether or not it came with bread and so gave up and also left without food.

The only nice thing was that the beef stew was very tasty, although the portion size was minuscule for 60,000 dong and strangely came with a piece of wilted lettuce sticking out of the top. All in all a miserable dining experience.

If you are looking for a quiet place with good drinks, here you are. Locals has a wide range of drink, which are great, and home-made tiramisu and chocolate mousse. The price is a bit high, but totally worth it. Seriously you should try them. Service is quite friendly. The only downside is the fences which completely block the lake view.

A cute place with nice drinks, they've really made an effort to make the place look nice, and they have quite a wide drinks menu (and the early grey tea was a nice memory of home!)

Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, but there is a tall metal fence around it, blocking the view of West Lake, which is a shame. It felt a little bit like being in an outdoor prison. I'd go there again, but I really hope that they get rid of the fence- there's no need for it!

Vietnamese cafe not restaurant, only 3 mains on menu tried them all nothing great the chicken was overpriced as it is a dry piece smaller than one normally at Com van phong but 3 times the price. Desserts not bad comparable to ones at Nguyen Son while drinks are decent. Kind of a hip place but bad value for money.

If you want a nice place with really good drinks, seriously, the drinks are really good, then The Locals is the place to go. It's a pity they don't have the upper floor for service. Also, their metal net is an eyesore, blocking the great view at West Lake. Sometimes, it's a bit noisy there for it's next to a busy road around the lake.
