Description: Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.

Location is not its strength, the food, the dinning decoration and the service spoke all. Lunch was delicious, I like the decor the most. For such dinning venue, it is value for money. I would come again and surely recommend to others

My parents and I had a great supper here today. We did not expect such an exquisite menu since we visited KOTO beside the Temple of Literature earlier this week. Regardless, the meals were phenomenal and we enjoyed ourselves. The meat was especially tender and we would definitely go again. The only remark is that we would have appreciated a... More

Yes for Vietnam this is priced mid to high. However the quality of service (right down to organising taxis to and from) and food was impeccable four of us all agreed best value for money in our 16 day trip

Had a wonderful lunch here today. Food was spectacular in both taste and presentation. Had green mango salad, amazing pork belly, a broth and ginger cake with basil ice cream. Staff were first class and surroundings very pleasant. We hope to return in a few days to celebrate our last night in Vietnam. Definitely highly recommended

Hit and miss. Like completely different chefs everytime I've been there. Great service, attentive, but I expect that with this price range. The food changes in quality a lot. Never bad persay, but sometimes like this and sometime like that. With care towards flavours on one day less. Altogether, seems like they care more about how the food looks than... More

Simply splendiforous! Would be one of the best meals I have had while travelling even in Australia. The décor is tasteful but elegant. The service is first class. Presentation of my meals was first class. Would highly recommend to everyone while visiting Hanoi.

This was our 'splurge' in Vietnam ... and we'd go again (we contemplated a second visit in our five nights in Hanoi)... Great menu and food (one doesn't eat pork and one no meat - but still good choice).

A bit pricey, but food was well executed with attractive presentation. Excellent wine list. Higher cost is completely offset by the fact that it is a charitable venture training youths.
