Elegant Le Tonkin serves lovely French-inspired Vietnamese cuisine, in a very pleasant ambience that somewhat revives Hanoi's heydays... during French colonialism.
Beautifully decked out with a touch of classiness and style, you can either dine indoors or plunge into one of the cozy sofas at the courtyard and have your drink there... Ambience is soothing and comfortable (works well for a romantic evening) and the service is very good too.
The food here is really lovely and authentic, and truly reflects the influence that French cuisine has on Vietnamese food... it's not just another ultra-sophisticated fusion restaurant that serves tiny culinary creations with pompous names...
As expected, there is a decent wine list to complement the dinning experience.
Prices are not too bad for a restaurant of such class: around SG$ 50-75
Open daily (except Monday) for lunch and dinner
