We had a lovely mid day meal at Yin And Yang , reasonably-priced with memorable tastes of the Vietnamese countryside. We had an unusual mustard greens soup, a plate of do it yourself spring rolls, and a delightful pho with all the great stuff that makes that soup so special. Like so many places it's a little hole in the... More

We went and had bun cha which was very nice tasting. But we went at 3pm and although they were open the staff were not very attentive as they were setting up for dinner. The reviews are warranted! Yummo!

We came here for the cocktails and didn't regret it. The mojito was amazing, as was the Cliff Dive. While we were there, we got tempted by the bun cha and the mango sticky rice. Our temptation paid off. Definitely try at least one of those if you're here.

You must try this restaurant when visiting Hanoi! We ate at here several times during our two week stay and everytime we had excellent food and excellent service. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant...it is on my list of favorite places for future visits!

We visited this restaurant following a recommendation. Good atmosphere, attentive staff. I had sweet/sour chicken which wasn't anything exciting and my other half had beef with lemongrass which was quite flavoursome. Speedy service.

Grilled lemon chicken was nicely done. The other 3 plates were a bit disappointing. Lacking zest and not well seasoned bit like the overall atmosphere of the place. Staff were helpful and attentive but it all felt a tad soporific compared to the buzz outside.

Unpretentious restaurant on a small street at the very edge of what might be considered the tourist area. We were actually lost when we found this place. The menu looked good. It was an off time of day (4 pm) but we had not had lunch. What luck! My husband ordered a margarita for starters. We live in Mexico, so... More

Went here because I read the reviews. I tried the bun cha and my boyfriend ordered the Hanoi spring rolls. I found everything bland. All the flavors seemed watered down to make them more appetizing to foreigners. I will not return. Better options in the area.

Highly recommended. Very friendly staff with good English. Delicious Hanoi food and great ambience. We found a good NZ sav Blanc on the wine list which topped the evening nicely.

I really appreciated the simplicity of the restaurant, nothing over the top. The food was very tasty and fresh and the staff took the time to show us how to eat it properly. Just a warning: they have moved recently so some places report the incorrect address. The correct address is the one on trip advisor!
