Wild Rice

Wild Rice serves up Vietnamese classics with a modern twist and Pacific Rim fare from a beautifully restored French colonial villa in Hanoi's Hoan Kiem District. Slate floors, glass-encased bamboo stalks, fresh white linens and black chopsticks contribute to the minimalist, airy ambience. Enjoy delicious cuisine and excellent service in the capital city's most peaceful and enlightened spot. Try Wild Rice's grilled chicken in chilli with lemon grass, barbecued squid or beef with coconut.

Mains at Wild Rice are priced from around USD16 to USD60. Were it not for the flowers and wall photographs of Vietnamese scenery and colourful Hanoi characters, you'd think you were in a trendy San Francisco bistro _ especially with the whitewashed walls, slate flooring and sparse table decor. But that's okay. The juxtaposition of interior design and cuisine at Wild Rice is intentional. Try the chicken curry paired with a bottle of imported red or white wine, perfect for those chilly Hanoi nights.
