Backstage is one of the fine-dining restaurants recommended by Michelin, located in Capella Hanoi Hotel on Le Phung Hieu Street in the heart of the capital. Backstage is the intersection between Western architecture and Ha Thanh culinary quintessence. Visit the Backstage, you will be overwhelmed with the glitz of the opera scene showcasing gorgeous costumes but not losing the sophistication of North Vietnamese dishes. Especially, the pho dish is prepared accurately according to the traditional recipe with fresh ingredients, pho has a delicious taste, "standard" Ha Thanh. European dishes such as steak are also served.

Excellent

This is my 1st time in Vietnam and was unsure what to expect. But Backstage surpassed all expectations - what a wonderful memorable dining experience we had. The experience started from the moment we walked up the regal steps of the hotel. From the doorperson to the greeter who immediately made us feel so welcome, we were then ushered into the restaurant. What a feast for the eyes! And then to make it even better, we were very fortunate to get Ms Dao as our server, She was charming, cheerful & had a great sense of what we would like as everything she recommended was delicious! Other than the perfectly prepared food, what makes a fine dinning experience truly definitive is the service. Ms Dao gave excellent background information about the food imbued with social & cultural references that was in part entertaining & educational. Do NOT pass up an opportunity to experience this wonderful restaurant!

I’m a sucker for designer decor and wanted to lunch at Backstage to check out the highly rated Capella Hotel.
Perhaps a bit erroneously named, the opulent and glitzy interior of the restaurant qualifies it to be centrestage. It was a feast for the eyes!
We were the only patrons for lunch on a Saturday and the staff danced attention on us so they get full marks for impeccable service.
Food was a bit of a hit and miss. The bread basket was outstanding. No complaints about the food in general. Plating was nice. My heritage duck rolls and fish dish were a bit pedestrian. A bit more dramatic flair is required to elevate the culinary standard to match the drama of the decor.
Perhaps the high prices were the cause of the poor patronage but coming from Singapore, lunch at a fancy restaurant priced at US$40-50 per head was still acceptable to us.
I may not dine there again but would recommend it for a one time experience to soak in the ambience, only if you like maximalist dr or style.
