This is a place that doesn't look so much from the outside. It is so easy to pass and think it is "just" another bar. But, give it a chance! Their food is very good! I had a very good dinner their together with a good Vietnamese white wine.

Came across this place on our first night in Hanoi. Decided to try it as it was fairly busy. The food was edible but not particularly enjoyable. It was cheap though, so if you're just after something to fill you up, it might be worth it. It was a good place to enjoy a drink and watch the world go... More

Great to stop by for a beer! Food wasn't excellent but cheap and friendly service. I had chicken curry and my partner has beef with stir fried vegetables. Lots of drink/dinner soecials depending on the night!

Worth a quick stop for ca phe (Vietnamese coffee) if you're wandering the Old Quarter, and you need a break to use the WiFi.

Went for a drink before going to the Water Puppet Show. Then went back again after the show for dinner. Location great, food very nice and reasonably priced. Good place to watch the world go by from.

We tried The Spot with our kids when looking for something quick and easy in Hanoi. Good mix of Western food and local menu meant the kids could grab something easy they were familiar with. Staff were friendly and spoke good English and service was pretty good. We would go back again if we were in Hanoi. Very relaxed atmosphere,... More

The Spot bar is a basic yet high quality bar with staff who speak English. The menu is good and they had on a set menu for 80,000vnd (around £2.50) for garlic bread, very good spaghetti bolognese and a drink. We have since returned back. I also overheard a British man stating the high quality level in Vietnamese food.

We stumbled upon The Spot on our first night in Hanoi and wanted a quick snack and drink before heading to bed after a long journey. The food was tasty and good value and the beer cold! The fruit juices also very good. We went back a couple of times for evening cocktails, a great mojito and also another bite... More
