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!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The decor is simple but both the service and food were great. It's not as cheap as the street food but prices are still reasonable by Western standards and the food is tasty.

This place is 'OK' but seems to cater for tour groups. The duck in basil was tough and not all that tasty, and the vegetables were reasonably bland. Given the competition outside we would suggest that smaller street food places are probably more interesting.

Probably the best Pho in Vietnam. A bold statement, but it was amazing. The Bun Cha was so so delicious too. I had the banana flower salad as recommended by trip advisor reviews...out of this world. Great cocktails, great prices. The staff were fantastic. I'm sorry to leave as I would eat at Yin & Yang every night. It would... More

My husband and I came to this place as part of an intrepid tour and had a delicious selection of dishes chosen by the tour leader: fish with galangal, salad and veg to wrap and roll; some sweet and sour chicken, beef with lemongrass and chilli; stir fried veg with garlic; fresh spring rolls. All of it was great but... More

We found this place using TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. It's nothing special inside but the staff were friendly and the food was delicious.

The food was nothing amazing, filled us up but for there prices you could get double your meal somewhere else. Lemongrass chicken and fried noodle with chicken was the two meals we tried. Beers 30,000!!! theres a bbq place opposite which was much more filling and a fun place to eat with locals
