Housed in a restored 19th-century villa, Madame Hien is a tribute to French chef Didier Corlu’s Vietnamese grandmother. Look forward to more elegant versions of traditional Hanoi street food, with the ‘36 Streets’ fixed menu (535,000d), a good place to kick off your culinary knowledge of the city.
Located on Chan Cam Street, right inside the heart of Hanoi, Madame Hien is a French antique buildingdesigned by the chief architect of the renowned Hanoi Opera House. The restaurant is also the latest venture of the most celebrated French chef in Vietnam – Didier Corlou besides La Verticale.
Stepping inside Madame Hien, customers may immediately feel the distinction of it through a cozy atmosphere created by the art of installation and luxury furniture highlighted by red lanterns around its rooms. The restaurant is also divided into different areas including both enclosed and open-air space which may help people getting out of hyperactivity of Hanoi.
Unlike its brother La Verticale, Madam Hien’s menu is not French or a fusion between French and Vietnamese foods but only authentic Vietnamese foods such as Banh Cuon, Pho, Bun, Nem, Com Nieu or grilled piglets, banana-flower salad and lemongrass-duck foie gras.
Popular place so it’s wise to make a booking. Celebrity chef Didier Corlou has some incredible fusion dishes on the menu. Make sure you try the sapa honey ice cream for dessert
