HANOI, Vietnam -  Ba Mien Restaurant, Hilton Hanoi Opera’s renowned Vietnamese restaurant, has reopened with a new approach to traditional Vietnamese dishes after a revamp of both its menu and interior.

Food lovers will now be able to enjoy traditional Vietnamese favourites such as braised wagyu beef cheeks with ginger, braised whole abalone with black mushrooms and green vegetables, and pan fried farmed crocodile wrapped in wild beetle leaf, all with an infusion of new flavors.

Ba Mien also features a fresh new authentic Vietnamese environment including the subtle reflection of rural Vietnam’s rice paddies in the new design and the introduction of large sharing tables, which are traditionally used by Vietnamese families to share and enjoy food together.

Mark Deere, General Manager at Hilton Hanoi Opera, said the changes to the restaurant build on Ba Mien’s reputation as a ‘must try’ for followers of authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

“Any visitor to Hanoi must experience Ba Mien restaurant for Vietnamese cuisine at its finest,” said Mr. Deere.

Those who want to create their own ‘Flavors of Hanoi’ can also take advantage of a live cooking show where our guests can taste and experience the unique food preparation techniques of the traditional local cooking style.
