After reading the reviews we decided to venture to Pots and Pans for lunch... We had the entire restaurant to ourselves and we're greeted by a very friendly staff.. From start to finish was pure perfection and reminded me of a memorable time spent in Paris. We decided on the set menu and was well worth every penny!! If yOur... More

I've been twice in the last month - first time by accident as we were driving by and I spotted it so stopped. Sunday lunch we had the set menu and it was great. We had to add desert in just to try out the menu. Enough options to sample some of the menu. We had a friend in town... More

This restaurant was easily the best meal we had in Vietnam. The kitchen has a precision in cooking and a focus on fresh ingredients that pays off in exceptional food that is continental with a strong Viet Nam influence. My husband's pho was the best he had anywhere on our trip, and my crispy sea bass on noodles was exceptional.... More

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
