The Kitchen has gone though ups and downs, although they have been on a slump for quite a while. Used to go for the weekend brunch, mexican after 5, and delivery when I was lazy (only on paydays)

This place can be amazing on a good day, fantastic outdoor seating on a spring day, tasty omelets, good coffee/ drinks. The staff can be prompt without annoying, cheerful, and can have a wonderful atmosphere.

Sadly the last time I felt like I was at a great brunch spot in LA or Seattle was over 6 months ago if not a year ago. From dishes having less taste (quality of ingredients not spicing), smaller portion sizes, menu changes without notice. Bad coffee on a hungover Sat is not a good way to start a weekend. The last few times I have been the staff hasn't been very helpful either, from asking you want to take away 3 times after sitting down (only table there 7pm), ordered pot of tea which came in small mug, to missing ingredients in the dish (sorry no have, after dish has been sent to table and nothing said when ordering). Plus last time I ordered delivery the portion size was half of what I have every gotten eating there (nachos, and burrito).

So great atmosphere on a nice day, but I can't see myself suggesting this place. Such a shame, I would come back even if the service sucked, if they could just bring back the food quality/ standards.

So three stars based my history with the Kitchen although years ago would have given 6 stars and now would give 1 if I was a new customer.

Breakfast is alright, but pricy considering the quality and size of the meal. Breakfast traditionally in the restaurant biz is relatively low cost to dinner or lunch due to the cost of the ingredients used, but I get your paying for where you are too.

I ate dinner here once with some friends from Cambodia. Kitchen only has Mexican food at night so we all ordered that. It was the worst and most expensive Mexican food I and my friends have ever eaten. The food was so bad everyone ate half of their plate and pushed the rest aside. I was embarrassed to have taken them there.

The food was seriously bland with absolutely no Mexican spices we could taste. It also seem that the "chef" ,if they even have one, thinks that Mexican food is equivalent to using a brick of black beans with no flavoring and wrapped or topped in your choice of tortilla or corn chips.

Seriously to the chef or owner, Mexican food uses tomatoes, onions, coriander, cinnamon, black and refried beans. Chicken and beef cooked with Mexican spices and maybe some lime. If you cooked your food just with a little of these ingredients at least then you would have some flavor to your food instead of tasteless black bean bricks you currently serve.

I can safely say I will never eat here again.

Food is pretty good but bad customer service. They brought us the wrong food then told us they were too busy to fix it in a timely manner and that we had to come get it ourselves.

This was recommended to me by a friend. I popped in and grabbed a burrito. The place was pretty dead, but I suppose that's to be expected on a Monday morning.

The burrito was small, and didn't have much of a flavour. Not awful, not great. At nearly 100k for the small burrito, though, I felt a bit ripped off.

Not the worst place in Hanoi, and I didn't hate it, but there are better alternatives for Western food in the same area.

I came here after reading a lot of positive reviews on line about the Mexican food.
I give it four stars because the service was incredible, the food was great (fresh ingredients!) and the margaritas were also tasty.
I had the soft shell taco, my boyfriend got the burrito and our friend got the quesadilla. Everyone enjoyed their food, like I said, the ingredients were fresh, and everything was served within about 15 minutes.
I was surprised though, to find it completely empty on a Friday night, around 7:30! I was hoping for a bit more of a fun atmosphere, which is the only reason I didn't give it five stars.
Well, that and the price of a pitcher of Margaritas which didn't taste very tequila-ish at all.
Either way, I would definitely go back for more Mexican! Ole!
