The food is excellent, the noodle is fresh with lots of herb. The pork patty was moist and flavourful, the slices of grill pork were fatty-ly-delicious. The crab spring roll was crunchy and tasty. I actually ordered extra to go with my second Saigon Beer. Foods - 5 stars The location is street-food, not really a restaurant. You also have... More

If you are travelling to Vietnam you must definetly try the local dish of Bun Cha. It has pork mince balls, char grilled pork strips all in a delicious broth with noodles and fresh herbs. It would have to be one of the tastiest dishes I have ever had!

First, the food was not good. We ordered the bun cha (crab roll signature dish) and felt the taste was very bland and the crab very fishy. Yuck. The ingredients did not seem fresh. They told us to dunk the rolls in the large bowls of broth given to us with the meal, but that just made them soggy and... More

This place was one of the best meals we had in Vietnam. We had it recommended to us by the lady with the transfer company who picked us up from the airport and took us to our hotel - she said it was her favourite spot, and gave us the address and directions from the hotel. Unbelievable experience and insanely... More

I have to give a "1" but 0.5 would be more accurate and the average rating here is far from reality. 1) Food is not fresh: nems, meat and veggies tasted like they had been cooked few days ago already. As commented by other here, they recycle the food (until nothing remain I guess). 2) Price is rip-off. 90K for... More

If you see a Bun Cha sign, Stop! Sit down! And eat as much as possible. This little meal of grilled pork & noodle is served over a plate of white rice noodle and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce and is addictive.

Following a write up in the lonely planet we decided to try this place out and we were really impressed. Although pretty pricy by street food standard (90,000 if you want it with spring rolls, 60 without- go for the spring rolls as they're lovely) it was delicious enough to overlook that. The pork patties were tender and flavoursome, a... More

Please avoid this restaurant at all cost. It is not serving Ha Noi’ s authentic “bun cha”. Food is average at best but the price is 3 times higher than almost any where else. It is so unfortunate to see many tourists falling for this trap.

Bun Cha was the best dish I tried in Hanoi, I find this more flavoursome and unique compared to Pho. There was a poster pasted on the wall stating 90,000 dong for set comprising of Rice Vermicelli and mixture of grilled pork and minced pork pattie, and 2 pieces of spring roll with sea crab. The aromatic dark brown meat... More

I would give this place 5 stars if not for the blatant overcharging of tourists as has been mentioned by several other reviewers. You will get charged 2-3x more than locals. Bun cha is 60k here, double what locals pay. I paid 90k for bun cha, spring rolls, and a coke. This should really only cost about 70k if it... More
