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

We decided this morning to see if there is availability at Orchid cooking school and we were lucky, they had spaces. (It's recommended to book at least 2 days in advance). We did the afternoon cooking class and decided on Pho Bo (traditional rice noodle soup with beef), Hanoi spring roles and stir fried chicken with lemon grass and chilli.... More

I was picked up at 8 in the morning and taken, by cyclo, to the markets to buy fresh produce to use in the cooking class. When we arrived at the market, I was told I was the only one doing the class! After choosing my fish and herbs/spices, and trying some local delicacies (for free), we walked back to... More

Had delicious lunch here whilst staying in Hanoi recently. Big portions, tasty food and the staff also offered to show us how to eat the Vietnamese food, just in case we didn't know already! Cheap and easy to find. Would recommend to couples, families and single travellers.
