The guide took our family of 5 for lunch in this restaurant. We expected tourist treat. No way full menu all fresh ingredients. Combi of thai and vietnamese kitchen. Top experience. We will be back.

This place offers a philosophy behind its food, balance. Hot against cold, spice and cool. Food is excellent and the staff friendly and professional. Try the fish and fried galangal. The waiter even shows you how to eat it the correct Vietnamese way and they are obviously passionate about you enjoying your food experience. Highly recommended..

I've been in Vietnam for 2 weeks and here I had the best service so far. Just happy to sit here. The food was great too and the price is fair. Very recommended!!

Took a risk and it paid off. Food was very good and cheapest we've had in Hanoi. Beef stew and spring rolls delicious. Also the juices very refreshing. Could do with selling wine by the glass instead of bottles only. Staff were very helpful and friendly and place looked clean.

We found out about this restaurant through our tourguide. It's a really nice restaurant, a bit small but clean and elegant. We were provided a set meal. The first 3 were appetizers: Fresh rice paper rolled with sauteed beef, Green papaya salad with prawns and pork, and the last is the most popular: Grilled fish with galangal and fermented rice....

The restaurant itself is nothing fancy but not shabby either. In our experience the staff were very nice which helped the enjoyment of the visit. We had chicken with potato in a sauce and steamed rice (115,000vnd each) which we really enjoyed. The fruit juices and shakes were a bit too expensive for us (70000+), considering we could get them... More

We had their pho and bun cha nearly every day when we were in Hanoi. Excellent food, big portions, great service and all at the right price. A great place to eat. Couldn't recommend it enough.

My wife had a chicken meal and the chicken had a lot of gristle and fat.I had the shrimp specialty, which I enjoyed but the spices gave me indigestion. The service was not that good either. We did not return.
