Great food, great value

New Day was recommended by our Bufflo ours guide. The restaurant is in the heart of the Old Quarter and caters for a mix of locals and tourists. We booked in advance as it is quite popular. We sat on the balcony on the fourth floor, sharing a table with another couple. That was all you could fit in... read more

If you looking for the real thing, this is the best place to go. Very popular place and can often be very crowded. Our tour guide took us here and we ate family style. We ordered 7 dishes for the 3 of us and couldn't finish it all. My fav was pork ribs (sweet &sour) my wife like chicken/mushrooms in... More

This is a street cafe in old town Hanoi very busy, lots of locals, and ok for quick eats. But not relaxing or anything. Food ok but not wow. Cheap though!

Great service, top food, you can search for the food in the kitchen and be the food preparation . Kitchen and restaurant are very clean . Only you should make sure to have already visited a toilet. Because this is also a Asia disaster.

I was recommended this restaurant by my hotel, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I ordered a serving of pho and the chicken with sesame dish. I sat in a small room furthest in the back, where it was hard to get the attention of the waitresses. The food was just mediocre - this is not a place... More

We ate here three times and enjoyed each visit. It was a short walk from our hotel and has a slightly funky locals feel to it. The ribs were excellent and come to think of it, everything was very good. I would go in the kitchen to order so I could see all the yummy dishes they were preparing and... More

We kept going back to New Day during the 15 days spent in Hanoi. The food was tasty although it was more Chinese than Vietnamese and the portions were big. Service was fast and staff, especially waitress Lan was always helpful considering that the inside seating area as well as the sidewalk seating was always packed. Cocktails were not too... More

Not very impressed by the taste of my beef pho. It looks cleaner than the typical local restaurants. The smell from my neighbour's grilled BBQ ribs was awesome though... Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Maybe I was being too fussy/picky... I have a high standard towards Asian food I eat.

I found this place on trip advisor and saught it out. It didn't dissapoint. The food came quickly and there was a lot of it. The beer was cheap and cold. There are no frills inside the restaurant, but the food makes up for it. It's not where trip advisor says it is (on the map) so yiu need to... More
