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

We were introduced to this restaurant on our street food tour. It was so good, we went back for a proper meal. We can highly recommend the fresh spring rolls, the Hue pork and the chicken salad.

I enjoyed Chef Tien's cooking class whilst travelling to Hanoi on a business trip. I only had a few days to explore and so I decided on a cooking class as a fun activity. Along with me came 4 colleagues who were from all parts of the globe- USA, Croatia, Australia and Hungary, We chose our dishes that we wanted... More

This places pays great attention to detail. Great food quality and taste. Do not forget to try their milkshakes and other drinks... they are amazing. The ambiance upstairs is very nice and a good music selection tops it all off.

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
