I or any customers coming to La Badiane for the first time might be impressed and intrigued by green space and fresh atmosphere here. Having chance to work and enjoy yourself in a characterized French space in the heart of Hanoi, exquisite French cuisine, enthusiastic, insightful and professional managers in the working style of the French is an awesome experience of the youth. Besides, I also have the opportunities to learn and exchange of culture or cuisine from the diners coming from all over the world.
