Me and my partner have both eaten here and taken the cooking class with Tien. We ate here before doing the cooking class and found the food absolutely amazing. There is no air conditioner but there are fans to keep you cool. The cooking class was the best money we had ever spent. 3 hours of cooking and going to... More

It was cheap, cheery, friendly and efficient service (one of the female waitstaff spoke IMPECCABLE English), and I still crave the La Lot (?? not sure if I've spelled that properly - beef wrapped in...

It was late and we'd really struggled to find anywhere nearby in Hanoi to eat so we would have accepted just about anything, but we were lucky to stumble across Orchid. With authentic and really tasty Vietnamese cuisine, this place brilliantly covered all three bases of filling a gap, being very nice indeed and providing a real Vietnamese eating experience.... More

Being a cooking and hospitality teacher by profession I was keen to know to cook some of the basic Vietnamese dishes but attending this class wasn't just an experience in cooking, but a wonderful look into the Vietnamese culture at close quarters.

It was perfect walking distance from our hotel, the highly recommended Oriental Central, and had english on the menu, as well as a picture of every dish, which was quite helpful. The food was delicious, and came in a generous portion. I would say the food was ethnic Vietnamese, but... More

I'm a chef, visiting from the US. My time with Chef Tien was incredible. He tailored a private class, based on what I wanted to learn. He is extremely talented and I learned so much. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Based on reviews from TripAdvisor I had dinner here tonight. The service was friendly, the food came quickly but was fresh and ideas freaky cheap (85000) for the most delicious dish. I couldn't decided and had pork rolls and chicken with cashew nuts. Both was perfect.
