To be on Cloud Nine is to be in a blissful state of happiness. A number of conflicting theories abound as to the origins of this phrase. One of the most popular attributes it to the fluffy white cumulonimbus. This is the ninth cloud out of ten types first identified in the 1896 International Cloud Atlas which rises as high as a cloud can go, hence the sense of being ‘on top of the world’. Others attribute it to the mystical divine number nine or to Buddhism which says cloud 9 is a stage in the search for enlightenment.
We chose to call our new restaurant Cloud Nine because we are confident after dining here you will feel extremely happy and satisfied. Located on the 9th floor and encased in walls of floor to ceiling windows, with soft cream drapes, the 360 degree views across Hanoi’s rooftops, Hoan Kiem Lake and Red River are breathtaking and inspiring. Flooded with light and a feeling of openness the concept of seeing the outside world is just as important as what is within.
The restaurant and bar area are classically styled calling to mind an Indochina area. A color palette of black, white, creams and blue-greys partners with geometric shapes of striped furnishings and square patterned floor tiles.
The menu features the very best in authentic flavorful Vietnamese cuisine including dishes from all regions of the and an extensive selection of favorite international fare. Creatively presented and technically exquisite each dish takes the diner on a culinary journey through food.
While no one really knows how the term Cloud Nine came about, one thing we are certain about is that visiting Cloud Nine gives the feeling one is dining high in the clouds above Hanoi.
