Good food, good service

This is a cozy little restaurant located in a quiet street in the Old Quarter. The food is good and there are more than enough choices in the menu. The service is warm and friendly. At least two of the servers speak english well enough. The food is served quickly and the prices are reasonable... read more

For the most part of the year you sit on a nice terrace in this interesting side street in the old quarter. The menu is excellent and I have had a more than decent western breakfast as well as several oriental lunches here. The wonderful staff look after you without a hitch and the owner is courteous and interested. I... More

This place was close to the hotel where I stayed in. I wanted to have an early dinner so I can rest after a long trip. Along with my companions, we chose this place after looking at the menu. The chicken pho I ordered was delicious and I also like the guava juice. The restaurant gave us free egg pudding... More

This place was recommend by one of the staff at Old Center Hanoi hotel. It's a small place without AC but they have some mist system going and fans. The food came quickly and was so good that I wished I'd stayed another day just to eat there again.

This is a perfectly 'nice' / 'good' / 'fine' eatery in the Old Quarter, Hanoi. It has a nice setting on the corner of a quiet street with tables inside and out as well as upstairs. The staff were attentive and the food was fine. Nothing to write home about though, just a good local place to grab a meal.

I'm staying around the corner and just got in - my hotel recommend this as a good, cheap, local place to eat so I tried it out. Sat outside with fans, which was comfortable for me, and the service was very polite and attentive. I got an appetizer plate so I could sample things, and I didn't particularly care for... More

Found this cafe/restaurant on a walk from our hotel, Hanoi Pearl. Seating available outside, with fans, inside and upstairs. A big choice of meals on the menu - Vietnamese or Western style meals. All were excellent. The Duck in Orange sauce was special. Great staff, all spoke English and were happy to practice their English with you. Prices were really... More

Just a few minutes walk from Hoan Kiem Lake on the bend of Hang Hanh (No 37) Street this ordinary looking cafe will surprise you with the quality of the local cuisine, the beef in banana leaf was just excellent and I am sure even Raymond Blanc would be proud to serve it up as his own dish. The quality... More
