A La Folie moved by Truc Bach Lake in 2016 - it's still one of our favourite places for a relaxed meal of French cuisine in a cool space.

These guys changed location in 2016, and completely reinvented the interior concept. But as far as we can work out, they've stayed faithful to the culinary concept. Simple French flavours.

Owned by a Frenchman, a French Vietnamese and a Hanoian - the mix might be the secret A La Folie's unique appeal.

The new interiors are modern, but warm - over 3 floors.

The wine list is French with bottles starting at 600,000VND. There are a couple of good options available by the glass.

A nice choice for a relaxed French meal in a setting with views over Truc Bach Lake.
