Still pretty good

I remember coming to this restaurant two years ago. As soon as I walked past tonight I recalled the taste of fresh bun cha. So, being a creature of habit I decided to revisit. My memory didn't fall me. Overall this restaurant is pretty good. I suspect there is better for the price and the... read more

We went here after walking around having a great time in the old quarter. We sat upstairs - even though one else was up there at the time. We sat on the little balcony on the first floor sitting above the street and world go bye. The service was great. It was well priced, the food and wine was great.... More

We had lunch at this restaurant next to our hotel. The food was okay - nothing to shout about. The prices are a bit steep as this restaurant obviously caters to the tourist market.

We had some local dishes and they were excelent prepared. The service was also very friendly and fast. The only downside was the curry, which was ok

I went to this restaurant with ten of my family members. The food we ordered was wonderful, much to our relief, as we had not had great food the last two days else where. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They were able to explain the dishes, recommend dishes and when serving they always checked if you knew... More

The staff is very friendly and polite. The atmosphere is perfect: historic and quite calm, which helps after a whole day in the old quarter. The Food is excellent and a partially a modern Interpretation of traditional Food. We loved it!

Given the overall positive reviews of this restaurant, I think our experience was not typical. But I'm writing a review in case poor service becomes a trend. Their food was good and it seems perfectly clean. But we had VERY poor service and waited a full hour for our food. We also waited 15 minutes for our initial drinks (just... More

Such a nice place to eat. One of my friends was in a wheel chair. There was a couple of steps to get in but the staff were very friendly and catered for us in every way. Food was so good. Spring rolls were top notch! Highly recommend!

We tried several restaurants in Hanoi, from some pretty upscale to very simplistic. I have to say that "Bar-restaurant 96" gets it just right. Very good food, at very good prices, cosy and stylish venue. We tried it on our last night but if we stayed longer we would be there again for sure. Highly recommend! Deep fried spring rolls,...
