A must go destination for all tourists in Hanoi

One dish, no menu. Good fresh grill taste. But don't bring vegetarians there because they will have nothing to eat.

The meal was average. This is not really acceptable in a city where the street food is so good - much better, more tasty and cheaper than this. There were no local people eating when we were there - only tourists, which may be why the food tends towards the tasteless. We will not be going back - sorry!
