We ate at this restaurant on our last night in Hanoi - there were 2 of us, where we ordered 2 mains - bun cha and chicken with lemongrass and chilli, 1 appetizer - spring rolls, beers and drinks. The portions were large and the food spread was more than enough for 2 people. The bun cha was tasty awesome.... More

This is a great cooking class, very informative and the visit to the markets was indeed eye opening. My only suggestion would be to have a big meal before you go, our class lasted about 5 hours and we didn't eat until the very end. Apart from that, the food was amazing and the chef was fantastic as was the... More

The food is authentic vietnamese. We drinks are cheap by Western standards but pricey by Hanoi standards. IT is next oor to the Oriental Hotel so if you stay there is a must.

I've been to a few cooking classes and I have to say this was the best. Red Bridge in Hoi An seemed rushed and amateurish in comparison. We booked the 3hr class, which ended up being closer to 5hrs. They certainly don't rush and leave plenty of time for everything. Unlike other "classes" which end up being more like demonstrations,... More

Family run by Nguyen Minh Tien, his wife and adorable five-year-old daughter, this three story restaurant is frequented by tourists from all over the world, and they are served clean and healthy food in a pleasant, colorful setting. If you worry about eating from street-side stands and local restaurants where you don't feel safe, the Orchid is for you. Conveniently... More

Loved the Hanoi style grilled fish, other dishes very good as well. Generous portions, friendly helpful staff. The shakes & drinks a must try, loved the comborombo & Lassis. Hoping to go back to the cooking class next week after reading the reviews!

For our last dinner in Hanoi we chose here. Yummy food and very cheap. The staff members English wasn't great. During the day we went in to book a table for that night and she didn't understand us. She said to just come back that night- which we did to find out they were fully booked. We ended up getting... More

I had a great time attending Chef Tien's cooking class at the Orchid restaurant. He was very informative and helpful. I learned to cook the beef pho, spring rolls and char-grilled pork balls and the end products were very delicious. The pho was one of the best I have ever had! Thank-you Chef!

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
