This is a charity type of restaurant but keeps prices low, serves very good food and wine, and the staff genuinely try very hard. A few mistakes maybe but you can't fault the attitude and willingness. It all works because it has a good atmosphere and good food with a choice of western of Vietnamese, and all cooked very well....

I got the chicken satay, tofu, and the fried egg omelet. On the menu they don't write what is in the food or how it's made so every dish is a surprise. This place seems like a huge tourist spot and they must dumb down all food just to please the general public. Service is ok and they have wifi... More

Best banana blossom salad! The restaurant is part of a Programm to help street kids - like Fifteen in the UK (allthough i feel circumstances for streetkids in Vietnam may be very different to high school drop outs in the west) No airco - just airfans - making it a humid experience. Attentive staff, great food, and for charity. You... More

We visited twice this charming non-profit restaurant during our stay in Hanoi. Both visits were charming, the staff was very friendly, service and food of high quality. The price/ quality ratio is very favourable. Highly recommended

Our guide took us here and we ate well. Staff were fast, friendly and attentive, food was solid Vietnamese fare. Cheap and for a great cause, well worth dropping after a wonder around the Temple of Literature.

Oh dear – there seems to be an elephant in the room. Seriously, what are people reviewing here? The food or the charitable efforts of a great organisation? Because if it is the former then I have to say I think there are a few things going on. Firstly, people are being very kind and go in wanting the food... More

My family was at koto on 13 sep evening for dinner. We were extremely disappointed at the service. The captain on duty that night only said one thing to us - barked at us "you don't drink" when we ordered three drinks for our group of 2 adults and 2 children. No one recommended the house favorites, came back to... More

The food was excellent. I had a duck with basil that was delicious. It also helps disadvantaged young people by offering them training.

We had heard from friends about the training of disadvantaged youth and were keen to support this organisation....we were not expecting the amazing food and service we experienced there for lunch today!! The meals were noticeably pricey...and worth every cent!!! With a fantastic menu it was hard to decide and as all our meals were delicious we will definitely have... More

I feel a bit bad not giving a great review, since it's clearly a worthy cause. I just found the food a little bland. Desserts in particular, so highly recommended, were disappointing. Savoury food was fine, but nothing too special. Service was good and the place is very stylish. I would probably still recommend it, but it's not a must-try.
