The food was so good that we at there 3x during our 3 days in Hanoi. The waitresses remembered our names after the first time and greeted us warmly each time. My husband won't eat at a place unless it's squeaky clean. It is clean and the food is fresh. My favorite dish was the Hanoi Grilled Fish. I only... More

We were introduced to this restaurant on our street food tour. It was so good, we went back for a proper meal. We can highly recommend the fresh spring rolls, the Hue pork and the chicken salad.

I enjoyed Chef Tien's cooking class whilst travelling to Hanoi on a business trip. I only had a few days to explore and so I decided on a cooking class as a fun activity. Along with me came 4 colleagues who were from all parts of the globe- USA, Croatia, Australia and Hungary, We chose our dishes that we wanted... More

This places pays great attention to detail. Great food quality and taste. Do not forget to try their milkshakes and other drinks... they are amazing. The ambiance upstairs is very nice and a good music selection tops it all off.

This dainty little restaurant offers more than one could expect. Whilst it does not appear like much from the outside, it exceeded my expectations. We had dinner here the first night we were in Hanoi after being recommended by the Oriental Central Hotel. This place is very warming in terms of decor (when you head upstairs), the staff were friendly... More

Chef Tien's cooking class was one of the highlight's of our trip to Vietnam. He allowed us to completely customize our menu and took us on an AMAZING market tour. We took pedi-cabs to the market and walked around to buy our ingredients (including live fish!). This was definitely the highlight of the entire evening - Chef Tien pointed out... More

We visited the orchid restaurant on our first evening in hanoi, as it was recommended by staff at the hotel we were staying in (oriental Central). The food and service were lovely and we would highly recommend eating here.

I decided to do the cooking class at the last minute and made reservation for the same day. Mr. Tien was great. We went to the market with cyclo, and had a nice little preview to the old quarter through the meandering streets. The shopping experience in itself was interesting. We bought fish, vegetables, rice paper, and ate some fruits... More
