As Tet is approaching, Novotel Suites Hanoi is offering a special Tet set menu for the whole family during the festive season, served from January 28 to February 10 at Food Exchange Restaurant on the second floor of the hotel.

“Tet Nguyen Dan”, in the Vietnamese language, symbolizes the very first moments of the New Year in the lunar calendar and is the most sacred time of the year for Vietnamese. It’s a time when families get together to farewell the old year and greet the new one. Like a Christmas tree, a kumquat tree is set up in every home and special feasts are prepared. Tet is also a time for family reunions, exchanging lucky money, passing on best wishes, and forgiving others.

The Novotel Suites Hanoi’s Tet set menu features a salad, soup and two main courses for each person. Diners can choose a main course of Charxiu pork, Grouper fillet, BBQ beef rib, Chicken with cashew, or Sautéed prawn with salted egg. All are served with side dishes such as French fries, bread and butter. For dessert is a large plate of seasonal fruit for the whole family or a crème brûlée for each diner.

Prices start from VND1.5 million ($65) for a family of four (parents and two children under 11 years old), with a supplementary charge of VND400,000 ($17) per adult for extra guests, and VND200,000 ($8) per child. The price includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink per person.

To pair with Tet set menu, Novotel Suites Hanoi is also offering a “wine of the season” promotion, featuring Montparnasse non-vintage Sparkling Brut at VND950,000 ($41) a bottle and VND190,000 ($8) a glass. A combination of Ugni Blanc and Chardonnay grapes, the wine is sourced from vineyards across France and boasts a fresh and delicate floral taste with a fruity aroma. It pairs well with seafood or can be enjoyed on its own.

From now until January 25, the hotel has a “Year-end Party Package” for groups from 40 people onwards, with vivid Tet décor throughout the hotel. The price for a lunch-time party is at VND589,000 ($25) per person for a lunch buffet, and VND689,000 ($30) per person for a dinner buffet or set menu for the night party, including a bottle of sparkling wine or a large cake. Both packages come with one beer or soft drink per guest.

Making it more convenient for party organizers, Novotel Suites Hanoi helps set up a large backdrop for each night party that pays from VND819,000 ($35) per person (dinner buffet). The price also includes a choice of a bottle of sparkling wine or a large cake, and either one-hour free-flow beer and soft drinks, one bottle of spirit per ten people, or karaoke.
