Tasty and suited our family well but chicken fried rice and chicken and cashew nuts (no more than 8 nuts) sounds like something out of our local Chinese and not somewhere in the middle of the old quarter in Hanoi. No issues with the food (good starters) with the main courses good and as described but nothing outstanding.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and we loved it. Best Pho I had in Vietnam. It might look a little touristy from the outside but as soon as you head up to the second floor, you immediately get an authentic Vietnamese experience.

It is very near to our hotel for a quick bite of authentic and affordable Vietnamese cuisine! We love the chicken pho, hanoi springroll, sweet and sour pork and chicken soup!

We really loved this restaurant, only wish the second night we had made a reservation becuase they were fully booked by the time we got back from all day Halong Bay Tour and is was a Monday night. Well worth the trip to this restaurant, for us it was next door to our hotel.

My family and I visited Hanoi and had a cooking class at Chef Tien's place at Orchid Cooking Class. It was absolutely fantastic! We loved the beef pho, pork balls with caramel sauce and the deep fried spring rolls. First, Chef Tien picked us up from our hotel by cab and we went to the Orchid Cooking Class. Chef Tien... More

Pho was tasty, spring rolls average but a cockroach run over our table which spoiled the meal somewhat..

Visited this restaurant during lunch and had to be turned away as it was full. Finally, had a chance to revisit during dinner one night. We ordered pho bo, fried squid with lemongrass & chilli, hue spring roll and fried beef. We realised that the interpretation or style of cooking is different from another restaurant we tried, even though the... More

There was some hands on but appreciated seeing chef demonstrate his skills including beautiful vegetable carving.The best part was sharing of... More

I wasn't able to take a cooking class at this restaurant, however, I did enjoy a nice lunch of spring rolls, pho, and beer. The food was wonderful, however, the service was lacking. Only me and another table of two....took 20 minutes to get bill.
