Delicious food and worthwhile organisation

I can't believe this restaurant isn't higher up the ratings in Hanoi. My partner and I both thought it was amazing. It is located across the street from the Temple of Literature. The food was fresh and delicious. There was a great selection, including some good veggie choices. The staff were... read more

This restaurant is very busy, and requires security at the door - it's recommended to eat later in the afternoon so as to miss the lunch rush. Food is a bit more highly priced in comparison to the local food in Hanoi, but wait staff are disadvantaged youth which have been trained to work in the restaurant which is a... More

This clean and centrally located restaurant trains underprivileged people to work as cooks and wait staff and distributes profits to the poor. The food is great and the service can't be beat. As with many Vietnamese restaurants, we were served a variety of courses beginning with delicate fresh rolls served alongside banana flower salad with crispy tofu and beautiful spring... More

I went there with a group so we had a lot to share between us and it was delicious. The food is great and different than other restaurants I've been to in Hanoi. The staff was really kind and helpful. I had a great time and will go back there on my nex trip to Vietnam. A Must Eat!

Very friendly staff. Kids speak very clear English. Presentation is like professional chef. Cannot believe they are kids under training.

If you need an easy, clean and friendly place to eat i recommend this one. The price is a little high, but the service and the food are great. Good for tourists looking for fine Vietnamese food in an informal environment. I suggest you drink the koto special smoothie.

Group of five thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the reasonable prices. Western dishes and wines are expensive. Best to book. It is popular.
