We attended the cooking class, for me the highlight was buying the ingredients at the local markets where we got to see how the locals shop. This was a great experience and also a really good photo opportunity. My wife loves cooking classes so it was a hit for her, while I don't really care for them that much, but... More

Fantastic day full of laughter and fun. We took a visit to the market for all the fresh ingredients and then we were treated with a beautiful meal that we had been taught and had made. Excellent value.

We had dinner here 3 nights and it was super. The Hanoi style grilled fish is so delicious I wish I had done the cooking class so that I had learnt how to make it!

We were so happy to have done this class with Antony. We loved seeing the markets with a local, experiencing local life firsthand and trying local delicacies. The menu we cooked on our course sounded average but was sooooo delicious, honestly I think we cooked one of our top 5 meals since being in Vietnam. Loved being able to eat... More

Recommended by our hotel and has good reports on Trip Advisor. Restaurant is fairly nondescript from the outside and even though our hotel was close by we almost missed the entrance. Decor is basic but clean. Food was great and well priced. We had BBQ pork skewers, grilled aubergine and a chicken dish. Deserves its rating near the top of... More

Lovely meal at the Orchid tonight. Ha Noi spring rolls, fish in a pot, morning glory and rice. All done to perfection. Great service with lovely staff. Warm ambiance and quieter, so ideal for a relaxing meal. Book a table upstairs by the window and watch the busy street life of old Ha Noi buzz below. The menu is simple... More

I can't say that I was excited at the thought of starting a cooking course at 9am with a hangover. However, this was soon forgotten as we were immediately whisked down the street to the local market in order to purchase the ingredients fresh for cooking. The market trip in itself was an interesting experience, where we were able to... More

We ate here three times as we loved it so much, the staff were brilliant so friendly. The first 2 times we came we couldn't fault anything, quick and brilliant service and the food was fantastic. Our last visit I had chicken and honey and it had a few very small bones in it, which wasn't great, and my partner... More

I read the reviews on trip advisor and visited this restaurant with high hopes. I ordered vegetable spring rolls followed by steamed fish in banana leaf. My friend ordered vegetable spring rolls followed by chicken cashew. I have to say that the dish was delicious but within a couple of hours I was suffering stomach cramps and confined to the... More
