The REAL Kangaroo Café is a Western Style Tourist Cafe as well as one of Hanoi's Oldest Tour Operators (since 1994). We're ONLY at 18 Bao Khanh St Ha Noi, just around the corner from the ANZ Bank. At the cafe we've got Vietnamese, Vegetarian & Western food at local prices & with proper western style portions too as well as very reasonably priced, "genuine small group" tours to Ha Long Bay, Sa Pa & beyond.
