Home is a fancy Vietnamese restaurant, in a beautifully decked out colonial villa, on the fringe of the old quarter. Food’s good - the setting’s memorable. Priced on the high side.

Review

Some of Hanoi’s upscale Vietnamese restaurants are too fancy for their own good. It’s all a bit overdone - pricing, decor and excessive fussing from staff.

Home, which opened in June 2015, strikes a better balance. The interior of the impressive villa in which it’s housed, features exposed brick and stripped back antique style furnishings with some contemporary flourishes.

It’s not an uncommon look in Hanoi and Saigon restaurants and cafes. But these guys have raised the bar a few notches. It’s an impressive fitout.

Staff are also very good - offering plenty of attention, combined with a relaxed, friendly feel.

On the food front, Home doesn’t pretend to be anything but targeting tourists and expats. The name is in English. The menu is in English. This is a tourist restaurant - but it’s a good one.

The menu is broad enough to give you a good selection - but not of biblical dimensions like some restaurants.  In addiiton to starters and sides, there’s a selection from the "seafood market" as well as some classic north Vietnamese dishes. There is also a column of “fusion’ dishes. 

Mains range from around 250K VND.

I was very pleased with my meal and will be back. No need to dress up - Home is fancy but casual.

Expect to pay western prices.
