MAD Society

Written by

Don’t panic, this isn’t a new institution for deranged expats; MAD stands for Modern Asian Dining.


A new dining experience in Hanoi, the concept is to pair an extensive Asian tapas menu with a comprehensive list of wine and whisky.


The menus are a creative fusion of East and West, with distinct and instantly recognisable flavours from all over Asia. There’s a Tiki bar outside, and the 1920s Art Deco interior is sure to be the background for many photos.


As it was founded by So Yeon Kim, owner behind the popular café Vpresso Coffee and the classy bar Mad Botanist, you can be sure MAD Society is here to stay.


Look out for the chilli steak tartare (VND110,000), Sriracha prawn cocktail (VND105,000) and teriyaki meatball in lettuce wrap (VND65,000) from the list of Asian tapas.


There are a few vegetarian options and salads, and special dishes such as the MAD phoritto (VND120,000). Finish off the meal with a classic tiramisu (VND70,000), or try something more unique with the wasabi ice cream and crispy rice cake (VND80,000).


Located on the 4th floor, Somerset West Point, 2 Tay Ho, Tay Ho, Hanoi. Open daily from 11am until midnight, and there’s a walk-in breakfast buffet from 6am until 10.30am. For more information, call (024) 3200 6881 or visit
