A great escape on West Lake from Hanoi’s downtown intensity. In 2019, Maison de Tet Decor relocated to a new open villa space - that is remarkably similar in charm to its predecessor. Great breakfast, coffee and all-day cafe-style dining.

Maison de Tet Decor is a good escape from the intensity of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and the downtown area. Overlooking West Lake around 10 minutes from the centre by taxi, the space is cosy and airy, the interior is classic Indochine. There’s a courtyard and indoor areas over 2 floors. The new location looks across a lane to West Lake and the Intercontinental Hotel.

The cafe-style menu’s tasty - with plenty of options for the health conscious. They’re serious about their coffee too and roast on site.

Not a bad spot for a social gathering or to rip through a few hours of work.

Prices are on the high side for Hanoi and staff are variable - but this is a special place and the food's good.

We haven’t tried the Vietnamese menu served in the evening.

Owner, Australian Pete Wilkes, is a veteran of Vietnam’s hospitality scene and also has businesses in Sapa and the north.
