The pumpkin soup was delicious but the tamarind salad was disappointing... Mostly lettuce with chunks of veg and no avocado. I probably made a poor choice, next time I would try the breakfast menu (all day!). It's a cozy cafe setting but Didn't see anything else on the menu that will pull me from the much less expensive and delicious... More

I am not vegetarian, but two of the people I am travelling with are vegetarian and vegan, so Vietnamese food can sometimes feel limited for them as the focus seems to be on meat dishes. This restaurant was on recommended list for Old Town so we gave it a try. The staff were helpful, offering to turn on the air... More

Our Hotel recommended this place for vegetarian fare - thank goodness! We had a lovely dinner here, sitting outside on the sidewalk, watching the crazy world of Hanoi go by! The staff were extremely friendly with pretty good English. They offer a decently large range of vegetarian options (be careful there as there is a meat menu as well!) and... More

All-vegetarian and doesn't include mock meat either and I think it was vegan-friendly too; in a busy street so you are definitely paying for prime location; good service, food was very quick and seemed fresh and fairly tasty though our rolls were over-fried. A bit pricey for Hanoi/Vietnam though (about VND400K for 1 entree, 2 mains and 2 beers).

Food is a little bland and overpriced to be honest, although it was all absolutely fine. Excellent fruit juices and drinks though. Definitely recommended for a place to chill, but not a destination place, at least not for the food.

We ate at the Tamarind Cafe twice during our 4 night stay in Hanoi. The first night was to experience the vegetarian delights and the second time was from our perspective out of necessity as we struggled to find restaurants catering to pure vegetarian needs. The clay pot was bountiful and tasty and my step daughter had these amazingly tasty... More
