We risked life and limb crossing the nightmarish streets to get to this restaurant only to be bitterly disappointed. The little waitress was really friendly, but sadly that just does not make up for the really bad food. We had the fresh spring rolls and the banana blossom salad. The rolls were ok, albeit the overly sweet noc cham. The... More

We had a great dinner here. Prices were average for what you can get in another similar restaurant, and evrerything we ordered was a success. Staff were very nice, we came here twice, and both were very good experiences. The restaurant has two floors.

We ate here as a large group with a pre-selected menu so I didn't have the opportunity to see the menu or order off the menu. The food was fresh but most of the dishes that were brought out for us were not things that I would eat or like. I am an extremely picky eater and there are only... More

We went as three people and shared four dishes, three of which included rice. All four dishes were delicious and ample food. The roast duck is amazing. Great service and central location.

We have dined here couple of times during our stay in Hanoi! Lovely little place with delicious food and caring staff! We shared some fresh spring rolls to start with, I absolutely loved my chicken pho for main course and my partner had fried beef with peppercorn and onion sauce! Staff was brilliant, nothing was a problem for them. My... More

Went to this restaurant with our guide, Thuy last night. Ordered "Bun Cha" on recommendation and it did not disappoint. A lot of happy customers at our table. Great food!

I am in Hanoi one or two times a year. I always enjoy eating at the Yin & Yang located on Ma May St. This trip we had a large group that met at the restaurant one evening for dinner. We had more food than we could eat. I believe my favorite dish was the Green Mango salad. It was... More

Decided to pop in for dinner on our last night in Hanoi and Vietnam as it is just around the corner and based upon the reviews. The ground floor was empty as most people seemed to be upstairs so we were the only ones downstairs. The staff were friendly and quite attentive, more experienced staff ensuring that a new starter...
