We had great bun cha a few days ago and then went here because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very disappointed. The pork pieces was tasteless and very fatty and the servers upstairs were extremely rude and pushy. It was a very unpleasant experience. Instead, eat Mien Xao Luon down the street and get the eel noodles -... More

It was good. However, quite a lot. We ate twice at this restaurant and recommended it to some others staying at our same hotel

Came by recommendation with good expectations and left incredibly underwhelmed. Very busy lunchtime and was seated on the second floor. Served bun cha and also crab spring rolls although I never asked for the spring rolls. The Bun Cha was a large serving and was good rather than great, the spring rolls were poor, lacking in flavour and incredibly oily.... More

We expected Bun Cha Dac Kim to be a highlight of our street food adventures in Hanoi. Instead, it was the biggest disappointment. We arrived at Dac Kim after dark. Our bun cha was delivered cold and hence was more or less tasteless. On our next trip to Hanoi we’ll try bun cha again but not at Dac Kim.

I ate here this afternoon. The place was filled with foreigners! The service was not overly friendly but not rude. Street food vendors don't rely on tourists. They are not here for us. Go in order your food and eat it. If you are in Vietnam and are eating street food, you will see its different than going to a... More

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
