I attended a KOTO fundraiser event at Pots 'n' Pans on Saturday 12th July. My only regret is that I hadn't been there before. The décor is wonderful and equal to any New York, London or Sydney restaurant. It is often difficult for a restaurant when catering for a large function. However, the staff at Pots 'n' Pans somehow managed... More

We enjoyed everything about this restaurant - delicious Vietnamese food, lovely polite service, and the story behind the setup - helping people to help themselves to a better life. We would definitely come back again! The prices were reasonable too :-)

We were a group of 7 having dinner at this restaurant, and the service was excellent from the minute we came to the door until we left. The food was magnificent! A bit pricy for Hanoi, but definitely worth it! Classy decor and very nice staff!

This was not my first visit here and it certainly wont be my last one either! My only surprise and shock is that I have failed to tell others on here about this place! Not only does it have excellent beliefs and part of a great project of KOTO - the food, service and style is excellent. OK, the street... More

We had a lovely meal, all very western, would have been nicer to have some more Vietnamese twists, though thoroughly enjoyed our meal, my husbands cured salmon was a bit salty, but the accompanying salad was divine and his lamb was also excellent, as was my crispy skinned sea bass, all excellently cooked and prepared. There were some nice touches,... More

've happily updated the rating of Pots 'n Pans to give stars. Why? Because the management took note of my review, made contact and offered to remedy the situation. A few days after the previous experience, Thao Nguyen (manager of Pots 'n Pans) made contact. She was deeply sorry for the poor dining experience we had, made no excuses for... More

I have been to Pots 'n Pans twice and both were outstanding experience.

We had the house cured salmon pomelo salad and the pan fired foie-gras for entree both were delicious. For main we tried the smoked... More
