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.

When you live in big metropolitan cities like London, with several high level and highly regarded asian restaurants, you can sometimes become a bit over demanding with asian food - Pots 'n Pans was a absolute triumph!

I visited Pots 'n Pans, not because of the food, but because I had read about its roots in supporting social outcomes. So, what an absolute delight to be in a beautiful restaurant, with fabulous food and wonderful engaging staff. The decor is low key but classy, in an unassuming small street. The food is not Vietnamese, but influenced with... More

The staff is incredible. Very friendly and attentive. I felt very comfortable even I was very early for dinner and did not made a reservation The food was good. Perfect was that I got asked why and what I did not like in order to improve the menu. Highly recommened even if it is a bit more expensive.

We were very excited to check out Pots n Pans because we had read a great article on the place and the chef. Unfortunately we were rather disappointed. The food was ok. We did a pre-set menu with several courses. My menu had a lot more American tastes than Asian. My steak was overcooked as I asked for Medium Rare... More

We had a group lunch at this place and we really enjoyed every moment of our stay there. It was a set menu and was part of a day tour we had with Buffalo tours. The ambiance is simplistic modern

Excellent mouth watering local Vietnamese food in a modern restaurant. Just one look at the classy lady that was possibly an owner and we were expecting something very tasty.

Before discussing the dining experience i will note that just prior to our reservation Hanoi was hit by a squall that knocked down quite a few trees and rendered many areas without power.
