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.

We went to this restaurant following recommendations from several friends. We were not disappointed. Having lived in Hanoi for 18 months now, we can say without doubt, that this is one culinary experience not to be missed in Hanoi. The food was nothing short of amazing and Chien and his staff were exceptional. A first class experience which we intend... More

The service and food at Pots 'n Pans is a credit to an amazing Aussie who with much help has managed to take kids from the streets, train them and offer one of the best eating experiences in Hanoi, a total credit to everyone. The food is beautifully presented, fresh, lots of variety, the service is top notch. The interior... More

Every mouthful is a delight. Vietnamese fresh ingredients and style, but with modern twists, Beware, it is not cheap by Hanoi standards, but you will pay an average price by most Western standards. The best meal I had in Hanoi by far, and I tried some of the other "famous" spots.

The interior design of this restaurant is lovely and very sophisticated. The servers do their very best to offer top notch, attentive care to diners. The only real problem is the wine list: it does not list the YEAR of each wine advertised so we were dismayed to be served a Sauvignon Blanc from 2009 (in 2014) that tasted well... More

I'm staying in Hanoi for a month, and I've already eaten at Pots 'n Pans three times. Among the wide diversity of delicious culinary options in Hanoi, Pots 'n Pans delivers a first class dining experience full of inventive takes on Vietnamese and European classics. If Michelin sent restaurant reviewers to Vietnam, I have no doubt that this restaurant would... More

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
