Centrally located and easy to get to, Ca Phe Hanoi is an elegant, impressive looking establishment that makes a genuinely surprising visual impact. The menu is varied with lots of attractive options and something for everyone while maintaining the authenticity of its Asian theme. The dishes are skillfully executed in keeping with the style: chicken nems that meet our expectations, a beef Ragout Bao with all the depth of flavor and tenderness that one hopes for from a long simmered meat dish, or Sichuan Nights with just the right dose of spiciness for a Sichuan dish, and a slight touch of Cambodian pepper for a twist on this Chinese recipe. The setting is elegant and sophisticated without being overdone. Everything has been thoughtfully designed right down to the last detail. The pleasant atmosphere is perfect for a family dinner, work lunch, or dinner with friends, and appeals to a wide public. While it is clear that someone has paid a great deal of attention to the aesthetic, the food is equally up to the mark.
