Why Don’s Tay Ho is special ?

The Bar

Relax in the downstairs bar, a casual and laid-back setting with comfortable bar stools and luxurious sofas. A great area for enjoying a pre-dinner cocktail, a pizza cooked in one of Hanoi's few wood-fired oven or a quick breakfast overlooking the lake.

The Rooftop Oyster Bar

With breathtaking sweeping views of West Lake and fresh oysters from around the world, all to the soundtrack of daily live musical performances, the rooftop is the pinnacle of sophisticated and refined nightlife in the capital.

Went for the rooftop experience, but were blown away by the range and quality of the food and drinks. We started with cocktails, and moved onto a bottle of wine, and was all excellent. We enjoyed one of their wide selection of pizzas and a risotto off the specialty summer truffle menu, which was amazing. But it was really the view that sold it to us, we could eat and drink up on the balcony, right on the edge and enjoy the view over the harbor in the warm evening, which was perfect. Not cheap, but you felt like the money was worth it for the quality of the food.
