We each got a bowl of meat and plate of fried rolls of meat to assemble in bowls with rice noodles and fresh herbs/lettuce and topping it all off with watered down fish sauce. Quality of meat was fatty/poor and amount was plentiful.

"Lamon" means "eat heartily" in Filipino. The hotel's staff oriented me to try it out. No mistake this was the best street food meal I ever had exotic to the city of Hanoi. I mustered some confidence to go sit with strangers in a packed popular place for nourishment. I had no regrets. I just pitied the guy across me... More

Visited this place based on recommendation in some TV show - supposedly the best rolls in town are served there. We got a portion of bun cha and plenty of the rolls without being asked what we want. Bun cha was average and so were the rolls, definitely nothing special. We were very surprised after being charged 90k each. Tried... More

If you wanna experience a real vietnamese street-food, avoid this place... without asking, you'll be given a bun cha & crab spring rolls which is quite OK but definetely not worth of 90vnd per person! The stuff is extremely unfriendly, the place is dirty and I saw that they were recycling the herb&salad that they serve together with the food...... More

Authentic Vietnamese cuisine! The place is full of locals and you sit on the footpath on miniature stools...very authentic! Food is fresh (cold noodles with crispy pork, fresh mint and other herbs, chilli if desired and crispy spring rolls), this is the only dish you can order but it's was unreal and only $5 Aussie dollars! Nice to chase with... More

The hotel gave us a handout of the "Top 10 Street Foods" and this place was listed first. And obviously we were not the only ones who were given this recommendation. The small, two story restaurant was filled with tourists. We went for a late lunch and it appears the crab spring rolls were made for the early lunch crowd.... More

Unassuming spot on Hang Manh corner, this bun cha spot vastly exceeded my expectations.... just thinking about it now makes me wish I could go back. My favorite spot in Hanoi.

Now, I understand as a traveller visiting South East Asia prices are going to be inflated compared to the going rate. I am aware, accept and am prepared to barter now and again when making purchases. However, to be charged TRIPPLE the price compared to locals sitting on the same table as me for what I would describe as average... More

I resent giving this place even one circle, it was easily the worst dining experience I've had in over a year of travelling. Myself and my partner went here 6/3/21014 on the recommendation of our hotel, and I really wish I'd looked at the reviews on TA first - it would have saved us a lot of time and money!... More
