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.

Lovely food

My man took me here for my birthday dinner. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and the staff attentive. We had a three course dinner and everything was delicious, especially the lamb. The staff celebrated me with song and cake. Thank you!!

The Koto staff were fantastic! Food was delicious, although I might have preferred more traditional Vietnamese dishes opposed to Australian-Viet fusion.

A great place if you're into an almost fine wine and dine experience. Pots and Pans offers a varied menu with some nice selections both on food and wines. The interior makes for a nice setting that kinda mixes the old with the 'new' giving it a pleasant ambiance that can also be quite romantic. Personally we did find it... More

I was here two years ago and gave Pots and Pans 5 stars on everything and it is still as good, even better! The menu is even more sophisticated in flavors and combinations. The meat and fish dishes we had were prepared perfectly. Wine list impressive. I wrote this after my first visit in 2013 and it is still true:... More

Nice place, nice staff, and nice food. We were taken there as part of a Buffalo tour. It's a good place if you want to help the underprivileged

Conveniently place in the heart of Hanoi,this restaurant produces the most mouth watering food to not only please the stomach but also the eye. A must if visiting Hanoi, and conveniently placed if staying at the Sofitel Legend Metropole.
