About Us

Welcome to Downtown, we have made thousands of customers happy since 2017. Where taste meets pleasure.

Our Story

Situated on one of the main streets of the vibrant Old Quarter of Hanoi, near Chuong Duong bridge, Downtown Cafe & Restaurant is one of the best dining choices for both locals and international visitors.

Downtown Café & Restaurant was founded in 2017 by a group of experienced Vietnamese trip leaders who have been working in the travel and hospitality industry for many years. We find ourselves so fortunate to have traveled to many parts of our country, tasting the vast variety of dishes found in different regions of Vietnam. In the process, we have fallen in love with our country’s food. Therefore, our team has been inspired to expose gourmets to a wide range of authentic Vietnamese cuisines other than the ones that have become popular all over the World.

Our esteemed guests are offered not only a taste of Vietnamese fusion cuisine but also a superb view of Hanoi’s traditional business scene, as well as the hectic pace of life on the famed Chuong Duong bridge.

Hanoian hospitality is proudly reflected in our friendly and attentive staff, blended with a cozy ambience, designed to make your meal an unforgettable experience.
