Excellent Food

Resturant was full first time we tried it, which was a good sign. On our second visit we were not disappointed in both service and quality of food. Server recommended that we had ordered to much for two people and she was correct,even with less dishes we had more than we could eat.

I had the Beef Pho, Fresh Spring Rolls & the Vietnamese Pancake. All were amazing and the staff was very helpful and prompt with their service.

Dining room was not clean, our plates, rice bowl and utensils still had residue, were only reluctantly replaced, and the food was not very good. It had none of the freshness, complexity and vibrancy we enjoy in Vietnamese cooking. Easily the least successful meal we had in all of Vietnam. There were only three other tables that evening, and we... More

Fantastic food at great prices. Generous portion sizes and very tasty Vietnamese food. Nice setting in the Old Quarter. My wife and I ate lots with a beer each and still change from £10. Can't argue with that!

After two weeks traveling around Asia eating three meals a day which were prepared by someone else, we decided to try a cooking class so we could prepare our own food and learn a little something at the same time. Even though we booked on short notice, Chef Tien was able to accommodate us the next morning. The pickup was... More

This place is tucked away in a by lane of Hanoi. The food is not all that great. The soup served was cold and insipid. The chilly chicken had no flavour nor was it spicy. The fried fish was soggy and not crisp. The only face saver was the papaya salad and spring roll. The service was friendly and quick.... More

I booked the cooking lessons instead of going on a day trip to Halong Bay with my friends. And I am so happy I did! Although I had read good reviews on TripAdvisor and was sure I would enjoy the lessons, my whole experience with Chef Tien and his crew exceeded my expectations. I was picked up at my hotel(Hanoi...

We did the cooking class with Chef Tien and it was a great experience. Firstly he took us to the local markets and took the time to explain the food and ingredients we would be cooking with. The restaurant is very well laid out and he didn't just teach us to cook food, but also how to prepare it properly... More

The Orchid Restaurant, bookstore, and cooking school is located in the heart of Ha Noi's Old Quarter... nestled among the many small shops and busy merchants, the 2nd floor dining room offers a nice, relaxing spot to enjoy a meal (and watch the activity on the street below). The menu offers good tasting Vietnamese food at moderate prices, and is... More
