We had lunch for 5 people here and everything brought to the table was very fresh and very tasty. Outside, the heat and humidity were overpowering, so this was a great, air-conditioned, place, right in the middle of things, where we ate well and cooled off. The fried fish was great. The décor is simple, modern, nothing special, but the... More

I had the pork ribs here and they were amazing. The meat just fell off the bone, cooked to perfection! The best food I've had this trip!

Went here for dinner and had a really really nice meal. Definitely our best in Hanoi so far after 3 days here. We were undecided on which dish to go for but the friendly waitress was happy to explain the traditional Hanoi dishes and how they were made! This was a bonus as we went with her suggestions and loved... More

We had dinner in this restaurant yesterday following the good recommendations we found on tripadvisor. We haven't been disappointed. The place was quite full, mostly westerners, but nevertheless the service was very friendly and we did not have to wait for our food. The interior of the restaurant looks a bit simple, doesn't have much of an athmosphere. Though there... More

Had a beautiful fresh lunch at this restaurant. We had the bun cha and pho which were delicious. The waitress was lovely, able to give us recommendations and some info about the history and customs around each dish. Would love to go back for more!

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..

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.
