By far the best shop and cafe we found on our trip to Vietnam, only wish I had found it earlier in my visit.

This shop is brilliant and Domingorio has completely missed the point. The Vietnamese staff in Tan My Designs are polite and attentive. If they follow you around the shop it's for the sole purpose of assisting you with sizes and changing rooms. I've worked in retail as well... How about appreciating the fact that these staff are courteous, well presented, speak English and can arrange to have your size made for you if its not available. Theft is the last thing on their minds.

The fashion may fluctuate but it's high quality and unique. I bought five gorgeous silk dresses on my last visit - all of which would not look out of place in the London boutiques I normally visit. I also bought up big on home wares, linen and a stunning silk bed spread.

I wore a Tan My dress to a wedding last week and received loads of comments about how lovely it was - and numerous requests for where people could buy one!

This place is definitely worth visiting. It's an oasis of clean lines and white space filled with high end fashion and a fantastic cafe - perfect for a cool drink to escape the heat. Tan My across the road is equally worth a visit!

Fantastic: 800 sqm of elegant, modern space that offers one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your home furnishings or wardrobe (unique napkin rings I haven't seen before, nice embroidered tunics, tailored jackets with unique embroidery work. I like the modern twist on some of the ethnic Hmong skirts/jackets). I also liked that they had racks organized by designers, from Vietnam to Japan. They also have Western sizes up to XL.

Great: The sales girls were nice and not overly attentive (hovering). Really like the eclectic mix of clothes, not casual everyday wear but unique, wardrobe additions (vintage velvet jacket, Sgt. Pepper-like tailored coat...)

Good: Pricing is "high" for Hanoi but a "steal" compared to Western boutiques.
